I was on vacation at the beach last week, and it was so very nice. I took the chance to reflect on nature's beauty and get closer to my wife.
thanks for the encouragement papa57. I try not to dwell on the what ifs, but living in the present sure can be hard when the future has changed so dramatically. I thought I knew where I was going, now I'm not so sure. I've always been a planner so I may have to revise that habit. I will find a way to keep looking forward with hope.
Thanks for the compliment LAD - I'm a writer like my father before me. Yes, it's entirely possible I could use my talent in some way to advocate for Parkinson's. I haven't considered it, but will now. I'm becoming an expert on this disease as I try to figure out how to live in this new world.
and cereus, it's interesting that you describe your body as feeling an invisible line. For me, it was more like having dead zones that were rebelling against my desire. Sinemet is an eye opening experience for me, even though I really haven't worked out when to take the meds consistently yet.
The future's not written - and I don't want to spend too much energy worrying when today has so many opportunities. You may consider it a sneak preview, but those scenes may not actually show up in the movie. I'm finding that if you look at life through the mirror of PD, problems may appear closer.
