  1. Pole steeple at Laurel Lake near Caledonia state park PA
  2. Had a PD -0 ...ME - 1 moment today hiked a trail to incredible lookout today!
  3. My sister & I took my mom to Italy with a tour group this past summer. My mom had always wanted to see Tuscany where her grandparents lived. I was terrified but so glad we went since my mom has had some health issues recently. She would not go now. LAD
  4. Love the last part! i also love when someone says "well you look great..." I just laugh and ask " am I supposed to look like crap?" It usually lightens the mood. and attitude is everything, you're right! LAD
  5. I look like I'm having a seizure when I get cold⛄️❄️ On the bright side... I am an avid PITT football ball fan so now we had to get club seats so I can get out of the cold 😎
  6. No I don't have the button but I loved what it said ! Have a good weekend everyone!
  7. I had some depression if you say a daily cry qualifies..,,but I got major anxiety. I was put on a low dose of remeron at night to help me sleep and I needed to gain weight (I lost 15 in my medical limbo). I have tried to go off of it but my dr asked" why are trying to break something that is working for you?" I also believe in the whole mindfulness-tai chi aspect of treating the PD. And exercise!! Good luck!
  8. Thanks! Funny thing... I gave up FB for Lent and decided to try to reach out to others who may be where I was 2 years ago by posting in the forum. It has ended up helping me. Don't get me wrong. I'm not all sunshine and roses. There are times when I get downright pissed. But quitting just isn't an option for any of us! LAD
  9. sorry-had to do it! Made me laugh out loud!
  10. I guess I am fortunate to be doing well on my meds and my MDS started me on small doses of everything. But I am a firm believer in the exercise part of things. I probably had PD for 2 years before my DX but exercise held it at bay. Exercise is medicine for PD. LAD
  11. Can't hurt to try some
  12. I take the agonist mirapex. I have not had any problems with it. I'm exercising as well. I have not needed a dopamine replacement so far. My MDS says when PD changes the way you live your life, it's time to revisit your meds. LAD
  13. I agree with all of the above. Get a good MDS. Make a list of questions. I had 3 months of medical limbo before I had a DAT scan to confirm my DX. You will be ok ether way. Just take it one day at a time. I saw a psychologist to help me. She taught me breathing exercises and just let me cry if I needed it and set me straight when I needed it too! good luck and glad you found this forum! LAD
