Hey Richard, THANK YOU for YOUR very helpful post. You answered something that I have been wondering all day,
I wondered if my Dad was aware of his off times when he was in a ON time and vice versa. That is very interesting what you said.
I guess it would be torture if you were really aware of these different states. Also thank you for telling me about exercise and stress, these are very important so I will pass this info on to my family. When you say nutrition, I am not sure what all that encompasses so I need to read up. I do know about the protein being a problem with absorbing the dopamine. But if this is important to having more or longer ON times I better read up !
I am sorry to hear your last few days have been difficult, but yeah if my 84 year old father can have this kind of response you will have double or triple that, so keep 'swimming'.
(thanks for the tip on Dr. Okun, I will share this news with him, and hopefully my father can make that flight to Fla so he can keep that apt on Feb 26th)
Thank you SOooo much Brad for your kind and thoughtful post. It means so much to have the support!
... and Beau's Mom, aww you are so sweet~ your always here and always giving support and love, thank you. Your support is felt all through out the forum and you have helped so many and especially me !
I put the movie Awakenings in my ' Q ' tonight, I am curious about it... Hope I don't regret it... I want to know about all sides of PD, the good, bad and ugly!
( I know Christie warned me that those people in the movie don't have PD like my father does, thank you again Christie for telling me that)
Keep you posted...
