  1. Thanks Bard!
  2. Darn, I just lost my entire post. Let's try this again. Hello Everyone! jb-I would have liked to have known Bill. I need to go buy some real maple syrup. I've never had it and am really interested in trying it. papa-you speaking about your wife in such glowing terms makes me smile. It's so nice when couples encourage and build each other up. Diane-I hope you are well on the way to getting your pump. Murray, Marcia, Island women, johnnys, texas tom and everyone else: Have a beautiful day. It is the anniversary of my diagnoses, which also coincides within a day of my birthday. Somehow it's "ok". I was worried in the beginning that this time of year would bother me but it doesn't. Yay for me!
  3. Gardener-I have experienced them in my jaw before. My jaw would clamp together so fast and hard that I began worrying about biting my tongue. I have also had whole body jerks while lying down. These kinds have subsided significantly and now I just get the rare hand or arm jump but they are much milder. I also still get the occasional lip and chin tremor.
  4. Rocki- I'm still thinking of you and praying that you are doing well.
  5. Well I just experienced typing a full post only to lose it. Let me try again. Linda I hope you're back soon. I read Father Breighner's book For the Love of Stray Cats all in one sitting. His analogies are insightful and he speaks about Mindfulness without calling it that. I think because he was touching on the practice before the phrase was coined. He speaks of us as being human beings, not human doings. Ellaangel, I think you would really enjoy this book. This man's love and devotion to these cats is touching and leaves one realizing how much good is in the world that we don't always see and the lesson's the cats teach him are lessons for us all.
  6. Good Morning Forum Family! How are you Diane? Still thinking about you everyday. Well, my DH and I had a very small garden last year and decided we wanted to do a little bigger one this year. He went out last weekend with the old Allis tractor and two bottom plow (which looks like an old steel wheeled lawn ornament) and started plowing. Thank goodness I walked out because he was so thrilled with how well it was working that our garden is now the size of a small corn field! Who knows how large it would have been if I hadn't stopped him. Have to go for now. Have a great day everyone and keep posting. I love to read about what you're all doing. Linda????
  7. Oh my Gosh! I'm laughing so hard I'm crying. Thanks benderet!
  8. Dianne-I am so sorry. I wish I was near so that I could give you a hug and sit with you. May God wrap his love around you at this time.
  9. New Normal hit on an excellent point. We all smile and say "I'm fine" so PD is not seen by the general public as an issue needing attention in the form of donations and research. Everyone has heard of people faking illness but don't realize how many people go thru life faking being well.
  10. I believe reading from a few others that they do feel worse after exercise. Occasionally my symptoms are worse during exercise. My leg will tremble and my foot dystonia acts up.
  11. afroney-Could you tell me what strength, brand and dosage you take that helps with your dystonia? Do you only take CBD oil as needed or daily? Also, in what form do you take it and how?
  12. Hi Linda. I received my book, For the Love of Stray Cats by Father Joe Breighner. I can't wait to read it!
  13. Update: I've tried the Mayne Pharma c/l and had no issues.
  14. Hi Mark, I just received a refill and received a different brand-for the third time. The manufacturer is Mayne Pharma. Frankly I'm upset and worried because I had no problems with Mylan, then they mailed me Teva. I had some issues with upset stomach on the Teva but am now over that and was getting along fine. Now I have Mayne Pharma. What do you know about the inactive ingredients that Mayne Pharma uses? Thank you for any information you can give me. Peace
  15. Hi Everyone. Not spending time here has made me feel like I didn't see some of my family over the holiday! Sounds like everyone is doing ok. Dianne, I hope your head cold is clearing up and that things move quickly to get you relief of your pain in the butt. JB-I never thought of it that way before (only two days to finish up 2016). I see it as a deadline now and thinking I should make a list of things to complete. Chava-I shopped for my first swimming suit in like 30 years this summer. I did find a functional one to do laps in because I'd like to start swimming for something different. I found an indoor pool at a REC in a neighboring town but I think I'll wait till next summer as I don't want to be traveling home in the cold weather with wet hair. Well, be safe everyone and take care. And as Island Women says, lets embrace 2017 and put PD in it's place.
