    • Pinkdaisy, That was definitely one of my fears/concerns about insurance. I was looking into Medicaid a bit but not sure if I'd really qualify and if so, not sure what or how much it'd cover but anything is better than nothing. Thankfully I did find some MDS' up in Erie and down in Pittsburgh so hopefully when I figure out the insurance business one of them will take what I have. Y'all have been so great, I can't say thank you enough! 
    • Hi Chris, just a thought...If you are thinking to buy any kind of Insurances, do it  now prior being diagnosed in your medical recod. I was either  rejected for my Life Insurance or rocket prices. Take Care, PD
    • Hey gang, what happens when you miss meals, does it make your Tremor worse, or anxiety, etc.? and what happens if you eat junk/fast food?  I know the old saying “garbage in, garbage out” but this seems a little overboard. I had to take an  emergency overnight road trip to see family and there wasn’t enough rest, or home cooked food and too much stress.  Life is way less good yesterday and today. My symptoms seem to have gone into overdrive.  Whats that all about?  -S  
    • Dr.Low founder of recovery Inc.famous phrase on sleep.You only need to rest your muscles and your relax your attention for health in regards to sleep.He also states many sleep in light sleep and in small intervals which accumulate to give us that rest.While a fitful night might be distressing it is not a serious condition. I have found a good antidote to stress is humor ,We all forget our sense of humor at times ,but that to is average for all. Sweet dreams,lol  
    • I found a few MDS specialists relatively close to where I live now (as I just moved from NC back home to PA), my only problem is that I'm still on the job hunt so I don't have health insurance at the moment...that'll be my first step I guess; I know some companies don't like to insure people with pre existing conditions so I wasnt sure how much opposition I would face...if only healthcare weren't so gosh darned expensive, but you cant put a price on your life I suppose! I've been afraid to voice my concerns to anyone close to me as I don't want to be told "there's nothing to worry about"/not be taken seriously seriously/etc but I really appreciate the advice and support folks, it really means a lot
