    Jb-you are a bright light on this forum! I look forward to you and the rest if the good morning gang's posts. PD is new to me and love having a place to dump my stuff-good, bad or ugly without any judgments. So...thank you all! linda- no guards in puffy red hats at the palace?! Here is is a cool pic of tower bridge...not London bridge.... I walked across it...on the low part my hubby and my 3 sons keep me going! I've logged 15-20 miles in 3 days. Stump- how about Fall adventure season? peace- LAD

  6. Summer adventure season starting

    Nice! It's t-minus 1 for our family trip to London. Stay tuned! LAD
  7. Anxiety/Tremor Help

    Try some breathing techniques- there are lots out there. Also, relaxing music/ meditation helps me relax at night....put on a sleep timer. http://www.anxieties.com/57/panic-step4#.WcMs5-v3arU one site with breathing techniques LAD
  8. Diagnosed 6 months ago at the age of 52

    It's a process. Life will be different but it can still be great. It is overwhelming and scary at first but you will be ok. I did a journal early in my diagnosis-it helps to just write it down, type or voice record. Looking back at my journal I have come a long way since my DX 3 years ago. You will get there. As Dave said... Exercise... Find something you love to do. If you & your husband like to dance, I highly recommend it. Keep moving and dance like no one is watching! Peace- LAD
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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

  13. 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
  14. Balance

  15. 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
