    We deserve what we get in the long run. John 16:32-33
  2. purpose in life is still with us

    Why is this thread titled: "purpose in life is still with us" ?
  3. Rytary

    Hi, I haven't been around here much lately, so sorry for the late reply. Rotary is working great. At my last checkup with my MDS he said I improve a few points. I take 3 pills every 5-6 hours and 2 at bedtime. And Amantadine 3 x a day. I keep very active, standing all day at work and upper body muscles get a workout too. With the colder weather bike riding is being phased out... so I bought a rowing machine to keep working out.,,,,,,
  4. Causes of Parkinson's

    Its a crap shoot...fact is we are all in the process of dying from the moment we are conceived. We (humankind) crave eternal life... a life without pain and sorrow. Each and every person must be ready die at every moment, what leads to our death is secondary. Ecclesiastes 3:10-12 High exposure toagricultural chemicals in my youth I think did me in.
  5. Top 20 Worst Snacks to Avoid at All Costs

  6. walking poles

    That great! At times all we need is a small sense of stability and our minds click back to normal.
  7. Biking

    Yes TTom, my clip in cycling sandals and peddles were in the mail the day the photo was taken. They make a huge difference. Thanks
  8. Biking

    This spring we bought a Terra Trike Tandem Pro. We ride just about every other day. Our average ride is 20 miles, the longest has been 46 miles. It is just plain great... you sit so your resting... and giving your legs a great workout. Big hills are killer.
  9. Back Pain

    Lower /middle back is really painfully stiff in the morning. Stretching... movement helps. The advertisement phrase "A body in motion stays in motion." is very true. I think the meds help too.

    Thank you lethe.
  12. Acceptance

    Yep... The truth is that this dis-ease is so varied, we each have to accept different levels of problems with our bodies and minds. For me I focus the words of the author of his-story: Matthew 6:25 “So my counsel is: Don’t worry about things—food, drink, and clothes. For you already have life and a body—and they are far more important than what to eat and wear. 26 Look at the birds! They don’t worry about what to eat—they don’t need to sow or reap or store up food—for your heavenly Father feeds them. And you are far more valuable to him than they are. 27 Will all your worries add a single moment to your life? 28 “And why worry about your clothes? Look at the field lilies! They don’t worry about theirs. 29 Yet King Solomon in all his glory was not clothed as beautifully as they. 30 And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow, won’t he more surely care for you, O men of little faith? 31-32 “So don’t worry at all about having enough food and clothing. Why be like the heathen? For they take pride in all these things and are deeply concerned about them. But your heavenly Father already knows perfectly well that you need them, 33 and he will give them to you if you give him first place in your life and live as he wants you to. 34 “So don’t be anxious about tomorrow. God will take care of your tomorrow too. Live one day at a time.[b] and... Philippians 4:12-13 I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of contentment in every situation, whether it be a full stomach or hunger, plenty or want; for I can do everything God asks me to with the help of Christ who gives me the strength and power.

  13. Rytary

    Yes, and I have been meaning to post about it. I take three pills every 5-6 hours, four times a day. I was taking Sinemet 2 x 25/100's every two hours and was starting to feel crappy. At first Rytary didn't seem to be much different, but then after a week things got a lot better. Overall Rytary gives me relief for a longer period of time and I feel much more "normal" with no side-effects to date. I also take Amantadine 3 x a day. ALSO At the same time I started Rytary, I started going on long bike rides at least every other day with my wife on our new TerraTrike Tandem recumbent bicycle. I think the exercise has helped too.

    1. One Sinemet ( 25/100 ) every 2 hours ( 9 pills a day ). One amantadine 3 times a day. 2. So far the same... 3. Not tired but fatigued... I just learn to fight it. 4. No and no.

    So far so good. Took dose at 5 am and it seems to of worn off at 10 am... just took second dose. It took about 45 minutes for it to kick in and worn off rather quickly after 10 am. Not tired at all. When "on" I moved really well.
