I thought this might be fun and help to raise spirits! Pick a word, just one, that represents your day! I will start......



My body is up to it's usual ANTIC'S


Antics. A. A playful trick or prank; caper. B. A grotesque, fantastic, or ludicrous gesture, act, or posture.

Today's word is relaxuality. I will spend most of the day relaxing. At 4:30 PM I will leave for my weekly spiritual study meeting.

I am not a human being trying to have a spiritual experience; I am a spiritual being having a (sometimes difficult) human experience.

 

First symptoms: right-hand tremor, constipation and restless arms 1978 (age 25). Depression and anxiety (non-motor symptoms) began in 1989 and worsened through the years. Last inpatient episode June 2013.

Diagnosed December, 2010 by a regular neurologist (age 57). After negative reactions to Requip, Mirapex and selegiline began Sinemet 25/100 3x/day. First MDS visit in Houston in February of 2011 was inconclusive. Second MDS visit at Baylor Fort Worth in May/June 2011 diagnosis changed to Parkinsonism, Sinemet stopped. Third MDS visit in August 2011 in WA State: received a confirmed diagnosis of idiopathic PD which had started on the right side and had now crossed to the left side as well. Restarted on Sinemet 25/100 4x/day. A short trial of Amantadine caused audio hallucinations in September 2011.

 

Current medications at age 62: Sinemet 25/100 ODT every 2.5 hours while awake (7/day). One Sinemet 25/100 CR between midnight and 4 AM. Trazodone 200 mg at bedtime, Fluvoxamine 300 mg at bedtime. Clonazepam 0.5 mg morning and afternoon, 1 mg at bedtime. Vit D3 2x/day, Calcium Carbonate Susp. 5 cc daily, Baclofen 10 mg 3x/day, Flonase two sprays 2x/day, Calcitonin-Salmon nasal spray once daily (for osteoporosis). Gel eye drops as needed throughout the day, Restasis Eye drops 2x/day, Nighttime eye ointment at bedtime. 02 2L per nasal cannula while asleep. Walker, electric wheelchair, moist and soft or pureed foods and 115 caregiver hours/month keep me sane.

 

All of the above subject to change based on progression, stress level, and dyskinesia. Whew! I'm glad I finally wrote that all out.

This mornings word for me is..........

Enervated


Today I go in for the EEG. I was told to get half of my usual sleep so I did not take my sleeping pills. I have been awake all night so I am exhausted! I am also not allowed caffeine prior to the testing which seems to be the worst part....

LOVE

Not to just be corny...or a cliche.

So thankful for love of my wife, children, and others. Their care and patience especially with PD. And, to have them to love in return.

And an amazing growth in recognizing the real love of Christ through the journey with this disease.

People with Parkinson’s can often experience muscle aches and pains. These include stiff or rigid muscles, and cramp caused by reduced or lack of movement.

I'm not crazy, I'm just special!! ..No, wait..... Maybe I am Crazy. One second...... I have to talk to myself about this... Hold on......................

Word of the day: Adversity

‎"Adversity is a detour, not a road block, on the road of life. This detour will allow you to see things you have never seen, experience new things, and give you a new outlook on life. All the while knowing the detour will still lead you to the place you want to be." Shared from a post yesterday by Mark the pharacist

I am not a human being trying to have a spiritual experience; I am a spiritual being having a (sometimes difficult) human experience.
