You may have Parkonsons

When you really CAN'T chew gum and walk at the same time.

When you no longer joke about your imaginary friends because you don't want to hurt their feelings.

When your dreams are the most exciting part of your day.

When your phone chimes your mouth flies open.

When it is after midnight and you are thinking of a silly "you may have PD"....statement.that is original.....

Good night...guys...your turn! :)

you might have Parkinson's if:

You spend the whole month of March..... doing the Shamrock Shake.......


Michael

Current age= 55

First symptoms: 1975

Prior mis-diagnosis: Dyspraxia, Essential Tremors, Ataxia, "Nerves".....

Final Dx. of Parkinson's: 2013

 

DBS surgery 12/2014............ Bilateral lead placement with a single battery/stimulator on RH side. Turned on 12/21/14 

 

To quote Cowboy, (a former regular forum member)..........Parkinson's brings us all together. With our many differences and emotions. We have something in common here. It is progressive, dangerous and has adversely affected our lives. We come together here looking for knowledge and comfort from one another.

You might have PARKINSONS if:

You can kill three flies with one swat without really trying.

You call a bathroom break "your next adventure."

When you can relate to mutant turtles as a lifestyle.

When a "new normal" appears every morning.

Your turn??

If you find that you're using a certain four letter word a lot while getting dressed, "C,mon!" -

- you just might be a Parkie...

If you feel like you're on hidden camera for the contest "Looking Most Like Tim Conway's "Old Man" Character on the Carol Burnett Show" -

- you just might be a Parkie...

If your body decides to be incontinent and constipated at the same time - 

- you just might be a Parkie...

If "Hurry" throws your body speed into reverse -

- you just might be a Parkie...

 

This newbie appreciates all the humor!  Thanks for the opportunity to be inside on the fun!

All of them on this thread have been good! :-)  Very creative, and very true things that happen.

 

The most touching one to me was about Flybaby having gotten up at 3:30(?) a.m., and in getting dressed to go ride

his bike found that his one shoelace was untied, and he had to wait for his DW to wake up in a few hours to tie it for him.


Age 68.  Retired from Johns Hopkins University and Medical Institutions after 36 years in a number of administrative coordination positions within the various institutions.

Diagnosed with PD summer 2014.
