  1. Not Diagnosed, However Need Advise

    Ella-do the happy dance and do what works for you! I do have anxiety- it's my primary trigger for tremors! And it is very real with PD. And often overlooked. I exercise when I'm having a bad day! It helps me to manage it. So....PD or not ... Keep moving!! LAD
  2. Good morning!!

    I saw my son at college this weekend! We brought him his passport for our upcoming trip. I pray he gets to where he is to meet us to fly together. The whole terrorist bombing in London has made me nervous but my son said "we are going...if we don't go...they win..." Happy monday to all!!! LAD
  3. Lots of good stuff in here and you can go online and order the book for free. There is a whole page on stretching. LAD
  4. Opinions on diagnosis

    My left shoulder was an early issue for me. I would request a DAT scan. Was the neurologist an MDS? That is pretty important as well. Good luck! LAD
  5. Balance

    You can get the videos on YouTube. They do have a book you can order and you can try to find a certified therapist or instructor in your area using the website. https://m.youtube.com/user/exercise4brainchange http://www.pwr4life.org/professional-directory/ LAD
  6. Good morning!!

    Hope all is well! I'm at a conference with my hubby so I'm in my own during the day to explore. The hotel is huge and I've gotten lost trying to find our room twice but I'm getting my steps in every day! I'm learning everyone gets lost so it's not just me! Lol happy Wednesday! LAD

    Noah- look into www.pwr4life.org...it's a PD specific fitness training program developed by Becky Farley who pioneered the Big & loud program. It builds on the fundamental stuff you learned- at least I think it does. I use it but I never did the B&L program. LAD
  8. Find something you love to do..... Whatever it is incorporate other things... If it's walking, look around and say the colors of what you see or walk with a ball in your hand and switch it from one hand to the other... Exercise your brain too!! As Patriot said just keep moving! LAD

  10. Good morning!!

    Dianne- my prayers are also with you and your family. I tell my boys all the time that if I did not have my faith foundation, I would not have made it through this far. Lad
  11. traveling with pd

    Yes with prescriptions on the bottle. I kept mine in a clear plastic Baggie in my carry on
  12. Good morning!!

    Happy Friday to all! Jb- you won't be down for long...it's not your style! We are here to pick you up! Be well! LAD
  13. Not Diagnosed, However Need Advise

    Exercise is just as important as any meds! It's one thing everyone agrees is beneficial for PD! I was prescribed an anti depressant for anxiety and sleep. I do sleep better now. I also do relaxation exercises in bed....breathing and yoga type music. Hopefully you will see an MDS and get things sorted out. LAD
