  18. Good morning!!

    Hi there Jb and everyone.. Thank you jb yes communication is good between me and Seán so lucky i have him...as for the trifle here goes Sherry trifle The original trifle is with cream, jelly, fruit cocktail, sherry and sponge cake Then there’s the cream sherry trifle (my recipe) this is replacing the jelly with custard However as at one point oh dear ran out of sherry so used baileys instead and mmm not bad and raspberries instead of fruit cocktail... Start off with some sponge in a bowl, pour some liqueur over then fruit, custard, cream just layer it up until bowl is topped with cream.. enjoy your day folks em

  22. Depression

    Hi there..I was diagnosed with Pd 13 years ago ..since then i've had DBS about 3 years ago which went very well. However as my meds have been reduced very quickly my mood has gone very low. i am on 3 halves of sinemet per day , one eldepryl and one lexapro (anti-depressant) ..just wondering can depression kick in with parkinsons as my husband died 17yrs ago that alone i understand would explain a lot. ems
