  1. Did you start taking 1.5 tablets from day 1? Perhaps start with a half tablet each time and work your way up gradually to 1.5/dose. I have always been advised to taper on/off. And, the crackers do help.
  2. JB, sadly no snow, not a single flake. However, 40 miles north of us they got about 1.5 inches! That would have been the perfect amount for me. 26F this morning - rather chilly for this old gal! Hope everyone is having a good day.
  3. Don't the powers that be know better than to change things for us Parkies? I am getting too old to learn new ways. Life is good, there might be one or two snowflakes this weekend in North Georgia! I get excited when it does since it is so rare down here. (Damn, where are the emoticons?) Found them! Have a lovely weekend, y'all! Sheila
  4. Is it early for the sap?
  5. Dianne, just now reading about your son. I am so so very sorry about his passing. I cannot imagine what you are going through. Sending prayers up for you. Sheila
  6. Skiing, I am having a similar experience. I was diagnosed four years ago, no tremor, mostly lost of fine motor skills on my right side, most noticeable in my hand (I'm right handed). I am still at 25/100 three times daily and experiment upping the dosage and/or the frequency. Nada. I can skip a dose and can't tell the difference.
  7. I was wondering about her, too. It's out of character for her not to chime in once in a while! And where's KimAgain?
  8. So glad to hear that Dusty is on the mend. When Lizzie was on thyroid pills twice a day, we stuck it in a wad of cream cheese and she snarfed it up. What, pray tell, is this magical spray that gets rid of the odor?
  9. Keep us updated! We're pulling for Dusty!
  10. Ellaangel, i did the 23&me dna testing shortly after I was diagnosed and it turns out I am 76% Irish! Not a shock, I have freckles, reddish brown hair and very fair skinned. Mom had red hair and green eyes. I hope to go there when we retire in 2018. I haven't figured out how to post pix yet.
  11. I'm still here. I thank God for this thread where we can just talk about "normal" stuff. We love our kitties dearly. Can't remember if I shared that our sweet Lizzie passed away about a month ago - she was 19. DH took it especially hard. Her last year we were giving her medication twice a day and he really cared for her. We are now down to one cat, Scout, who is almost 14. He adores my husband and follows him everywhere. It will be tragic for DH when Scout passes for sure. I've decided to ignore my PD. I am just sick of it governing and impacting every single aspect of my thoughts and actions. I am kicking it to the curb and taking back control. We'll see how long that lasts! Well, it sounded good in my head. Temps are expected to go down a little this week - I can't wait! It's been such a hot summer that the cool temps will be a welcome change. We are having our deck rebuilt and screened in so we can enjoy the fall even more. Love and hugs to all. S.
  12. Good Morning All! JB I always read your posts first. I feel a serenity in you and it's infectious. I bet those grandkids wore you out as much as you did them! Off to start a new week!
  13. Sounds like a good jump roping sound, good rhythm.
  14. Same here. Evenings are calm and weekends, too.
  15. Thanks JB! My day is complete !! ☀️
