Prospector, I have a brother in Radcliffe, KY who works for Keyboard Carriage in Elizabethtown. His step-kids are all huge college basketball fans. One stepson and his wife and daughter actually live in Louisville. I can't remember, of course, who they root for.

 

Did we ever get dressed in 30 seconds? I can't recall how to be that fast any longer!

Bristol, Rhode Island. Diagnosed Dec, 10 2013. Symptoms started at least 10 years ago with severe stiffness, muscle and joint soreness. Developed a tremor in right arm that's been getting worse for the last year. Also have many other symptoms including gait issues. Haven't gathered myself since my diagnoses.

49, diagnosed at 47 due to loss of arm swing.  Complained to doctor of loss of smell around 5 years ago.  I am a CPA just outside of Boston, Massachusetts.  My biggest problem is rigidity, not tremor.  Sometimes when the rigidity is really bad I can't bend my left leg and can't walk for more than 100 feet or so.  Still, try to stay positive and enjoy life.

Hi Johnnys -  I envy you the impending snow storm predicted to exceed 12 inches with the 'lake effect" I hear.  I spent Christmas this year in your Catskill Mountains - little snow this time which was a disappointment to me.  Nothing quite like snow falling in the woods at dusk.  Robert Frost wrote of it so movingly and memorably in his famous poem:

 

 

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

BY ROBERT FROST

Whose woods these are I think I know.   
His house is in the village though;   
He will not see me stopping here   
To watch his woods fill up with snow.   

My little horse must think it queer   
To stop without a farmhouse near   
Between the woods and frozen lake   
The darkest evening of the year.   

He gives his harness bells a shake   
To ask if there is some mistake.   
The only other sound’s the sweep   
Of easy wind and downy flake.   

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,   
But I have promises to keep,   
And miles to go before I sleep,   
And miles to go before I sleep.

currently 54, Dx in 2013 at 53.  Symptoms started in 1992. I am the 5th person in my family to have PD over the space 3 generations, the second with YOPD. Can we say "genetics"?

REM Sleep behavior Disorder. Kicking punching and yelling in my sleep. Id wake up with a hole in the wall and bleeding knuckles. Insomnia was becoming an issue too.
