  1. Morphine

    I have some pain issues not related to PD, and I find that MS Contin (morphine) at 15mgs works quite well.... with no problems with my PD meds..... of course I only use as needed..... as I do not want to get hooked on the crap.....and that, makes my PCP quite happy, as I say "no" to more refills more times than yes.......
  2. Muhammad Ali's Caregiver - The Greatest

    again, why do you choose to judge my opinion?? and attack them? Why do you feel that my thoughts, feelings and opinions are not valid? How do you expect me to feel? when out of the blue you come in for the sole purpose of attacking me? Something that you had no right to do. A simple apology... you know an opps/my bad... would have sufficed.... but no, you continued it in another post. So yes, I got a bit pissed off. If you were in my shoes? I think you would feel the same.... true? Sorry to hear about our DH, That's got to be rough, and you are correct, I'm not PD+..... How are you doing?? I hope you have family that you can lean on. It hasn't been that long ago that I lost my own mom, So I have a small idea of what you are going through..... I know, losing a spouse? is a whole different set of emotions. So I hope you can at least find a sense of peace in your life...as you journey forward....
  3. Diagnosed with Parkinsonism.

    Saguaro..... wonderful outlook...... I remember trying to hide my tremor by putting my hand in my pocket......... until someone (that understood), politely told me what it looked like.... and let me say?? I will NOT be doing that again...... LOLOL Lesson learned...... nuff said...............
  4. Young Adult Children and my Parkinson's

  5. Good morning!!

    Three against one??? You aught to have been around here the other day, when I even hinted about maybe getting up on the roof to work on some of my antennas..... Between my DW, my caregiver, and then my GF??? WOW!!!! You'd have thought I'd suggested going out to play on the freeway or something............ SHEESH.....
  6. Some Pedestrian Newbie Questions

    Great idea. Between visits, I try to keep a running list of questions for my Dr., that way I'm less likely to forget..... Although, you would be surprised how many of those questions get answered right here..... <smile>
  7. I agree with Roger.... I'll assess it when the time comes................
  8. She Said Psychogenic and I Shouted.

  9. Good morning!!

  12. Good morning!!

    hey Patricia??? out here? the trees have been in full bloom for weeks, and the daffodil's and tulip fields have been blooming as well....... and the weather prognosticator, just said that we'll be into the 70's by the end of the week........ Want me to send you some????? <giggles and runs>
  13. She Said Psychogenic and I Shouted.

    Somazzy: I applaud you....... and if I could? I'd give you the biggest hug I could, because you dear, had the guts to do, what so many here (myself included) should have done ourselves.... You told the sham of a Dr to hold on a godforsakenminute......... You dear called BS on her BS.........I have walked in your shoes myself........ over the years, I also been told that either I was "too young"... (as if there is/was a limit on how old you NEED to be), or that as you so eloquently put it..... that it is/was "ALL IN MY HEAD"...... or as one stupid so called Dr told me after a 5 minute appointment, "because you don't have a tremor right now? there's nothing wrong"...... I mean like really?? and you decided that all in the last 5 minutes?? without even listening to what issues I'm actually having?? I told him to go away..... I went back to my MDS and told her about the appointment, and she said ok, "Im going to send you here" and referred me to a wonderful MDS that confirmed what I already knew......(I'm the 6th person in 4 generations on my mom's side to have PD)..... That yes, I had Parkinson's...... My appointment with her? took almost 2 hours.... Then she gave me a script for a Sinemet trial ( the "GOLD" std...to see how I'd react), on the way home I noticed that it came with 12 refills... LOL I will say, it made a HUGE difference...... I could move again.... and for the first time in years, I didn't have anything shaking, and my feet weren't trying to find new positions that they were never designed to archive...... So have heart dear, with your (and your DH's) new found determination, and a bunch of help here, You ARE going to make it through... I did, and as well as so many before us.....So please, don't drop the ball now, you are so close to the finish line and blessed relief.............. And while you are waiting.... there's some great adult beverages in the fridge, and fresh cookies on the table..... So grab a beverage, a fist full of cookies, maybe a pint of ice creame..... and cuddle up on the couch...... you are in a safe place here.... amongst friends..................
  14. Good morning!!

    Install it now.... that way it's there for when you "DO" need it...........
  15. Good morning!!
