  1. Good morning!!

    Awesome, jb. As always. Quite a creative, imaginative mind you have. Did you tell stories to your kids when they were little?
  2. Got my 23andme results

    Hello, AmytoBeth. Sorry to hear you are not well. And yes--definitely I am shaky and nervous and hyperventilating over what seems to possibly be a serious sinus infection. The hyperventilating is new, especially. I had a very, very sharp pain on the top left of my head a couple of days ago, and so of course I'm wondering if it's connected. Am concerned about how it might affect my Parkie brain even further. Fortunately I was able to get an appointment with a top sinus doc tomorrow. If he shares anything with me that might be helpful to us, I'll pass it on. Hope you feel better soon. Linda Garren
  3. Bible Verses....

    “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” —African proverb Daily Message The life of faith in Christ is both individual and corporate. Each person has a decision to make about accepting God’s love through his redeeming Son. No one can make that decision but the individual. Yet the body of Christ is made up of God’s children, those who have responded to God’s love by loving God in return. The blessing of the body of Christ is that we do not have to take this journey alone. We have each other. You are as important as anyone else. Poor or rich, lonely or popular, flip-flops or Louboutins. It makes no difference. You have dignity and honor because God has put his mark on you. The people of God need you. You need the people of God. And for the body of Christ together, all things are possible through Christ who strengthens us on this incredible journey.
  4. Bible Verses....

    Today's Turning Point with Dr. David Jeremiah Tuesday, February 13 Recommended Reading: 2 Chronicles 16:9 Depending on who is watching, surveillance can seem threatening and invasive. But such “all-seeingness” is not new. God has been all-seeing, all-knowing, and all-hearing from the beginning (Genesis 16:13; Psalm 139:1-12; Matthew 12:36). How else would Jesus Christ have been able to send specific messages to the seven churches in Asia Minor about their practices and character (Revelation 2-3)? Those letters were very specific. Such letters can be a warning to us if our behavior parallels theirs, or a comfort in terms of Christ being aware of the price we may pay for serving Him. In either case, we should never doubt God’s awareness of the details of our lives. Live today as an open book before the Lord—a life you are happy for Him to see and bless. The heart is deceitful…It would deceive [God]—if He were not omniscient. William S. Plumer
  5. I think if we all contact Admin ASAP, they will boot this guy off when they see what he's doing. Two of us have done so, but it will help if more do the same. Thanks.
  6. Thanks for sharing that, Scoop. Here are several other sites. https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?p=HINZ%2C+Martin+C+5-12-01.pdf&ei=UTF-8&hspart=mozilla&hsimp=yhs-005
  7. Good morning!!

    jb, thought of you when reading this on my MPN Forum (for polycythemia vera) this morning. It's also a favorite of J of Grey Cottage, who mentioned it to me recently. Must be making a comeback? Sing Me The Old Songs" (--Author Unknown; sung by Tommy Makum) I sit by my fire when the twilight falls softly And all the sweet memories flow through my mind I imagine I see, as the flames wave and flicker The people and places that I've left behind Chorus: Sing me the old songs of laughter and pleasure Sing me the old songs of sorrow and pain Sing from the heart, sing of love without measure The good times, the bad times, the sunshine, the rain I hear an old song that keeps haunting me ever The good times rush back with that well loved refrain The sweet wine is flowing, the bright laughter ringing And all the old friends gather 'round me again Chorus I remember the summers, the walks in the country The long, quiet evenings, the smell of the hay The touch of a hand and a smile that beguiled me And told me of love that's still with me today
  8. Fellow Parkies, you already know this, so it's just a reminder: Always good to check out doctors thoroughly by doing an on-line search.
  9. Swallowing trainer- EMST

    I think it seems like a fabulous tool! Am considering purchasing it. I have trouble swallowing and have choked a number of times. It also seems my throat is somewhat constricted, and I don't breathe deeply enough. Also probable sleep apnea. Awaiting results of a sleep study re: apnea.

  11. jb, I loved seeing the picture of those beautiful, sweet deer.  I'd like to share the following link that I know you and others will love, too:

      That fawn was a lucky one to have ended up in that guy's  yard.!  Looks like the dogs became protective

      Thanks Linda.

  12. Parkinsons and sugar intake

    Tex, I just last night was reading about the benefits of dates! There are so many!! But the suggested recommended amount per day is one date because that will do it, and because dates have so many calories. I've enjoyed dates with pecans as a snack. And I could eat a whole container of raw almonds, but in reading about how caloric they are (which surprised me), I have had to cut back. Darn. I got some carrots a cucumber, fresh dill, and apples and some awesome organic whole milk yogurt that is the best I've ever found. Those are all nice treats as snacks during the day. Just FYI for the group, my MDS started me on 2mg copper each day. He said it is important for Parkies. I find it has made a huge difference in my problems with fatigue. I feel so much better on it. He had me get a baseline copper serum blood test prior to my starting to take the copper, and it was low. He stressed how important it is to have a good level of copper (but not too much, as that is detrimental) to help with the body/brain connections to help improve some of our symptoms. It's important to keep potassium and zinc and iron at levels that don't interfere with the copper.
