Your wife looks very sweet and supportive.  Her body language indicates she's very protective of you as well.  You are one lucky man!

Great picture,lovely wife! We are going on a cruise in August. It will be an international cruise. I am wondering how you spaced out your sinemet. Were you in different time zones? I am wondering if I get on each countries time zone as far as taking sinemet? Has anyone has this experience.? Thanks for any information

Hi SoCalGal,

I would stay on your own time zone taking your meds. keep your clock the same as home...don't change your body timing for your meds...I would think it would create chaos ...may be wrong...

Just a suggestion....when I travel across the international dateline or time zones I keep my watch set to my own time to keep me on the straight and narrow for something as important as your meds...

I know Texas Tom also does a lot of international traveling he too may suggest something different and helpful...

Have a great time!! Wish I was going too:))

Another picture from the cruise. This was "Dress in your favorite decade" night, and I was an 80's California surfer dude (in the blond wig and Hawaiian shirt). Wife was a hippy, and my daughter (above my wife) was a flapper with a fancy cigarette holder. We had a blast on that trip. Proof that you can have PD and still have fun!
