  1. That's funny LAD. Some of my favorite memories are things my son said while growing up. Now some of the things he says makes me think "is he really mine?" LOL Being a mom is such a blessing. Have a good day everyone. I hope each and every one of you is doing well. I'm going to go walk outside in the sunshine. I've been feeling a little down lately so I hope it helps. Thanks for your inspirational quotes LAD and jb I keep reciting your signature line about not being hard on yourself, doing your best and being strong.
  2. Jb-your visit from your grandson reminded me of a recent visit from a delightful young boy. He is a step-grandson of my husbands and he stays a weekend with us a couple times a year. The last time he wanted to go to a local pizza joint that serves buffet. When we were paying before being seated the cashier asked how old he was. So I turned and asked him. He said "I'm 6." So we paid and went and sat down. After getting in the booth he says real loud "I'm really 8 but when we go out to eat I say I'm 6". I wanted to crawl under the table! LOL.
  3. Thank you for sharing your experience and for taking part in this trial.
  4. She Ra-did you get products that already contain tea tree oil or did you buy pure tea tree oil? I would recommend buying a bottle of the oil and then you can just use it straight (like on a blemish) or you can add a drop or two to whatever other product you would like.
  5. My ankles wont flex in the morning. My first couple steps are not pretty. I read in a PD book written by an MDS that PWP should put their joints thru a full range of motion everyday.
  6. Happy Canada Day jb. There was a large estate auction that had a lot of antique cars and trucks last week. It was amazing what this man was able to collect over his lifetime. There were pedal cars and signage also. It took 5 days to auction everything off. They had a 1929 Stutz that they believed was only one of 6 produced. Jay Leno and some other celebrities were said to be bidding on it. I watched them auction it off on line and it sold to someone in Canada for $122,000. Were you the buyer jb????
  7. I had so much fun on our imaginary trip! Thank you jb for describing it in such detail! Happy Belated Fathers Day to all. shera I hope youre feeling better after your fall and Dianne I'm sorry about your pepper plant. None of our onions came up. I think maybe we buried the seeds to deep. Hello pathinder, linda, bard, Marcia, count!
  8. Good job LAD.
  9. Thank you so much for taking the time to share this information.
  10. Breathe and relax. I wish one of us could tell you how to short circuit the first stage. It's a horrific experience and I'm sorry you have to go through it. But --- you will be fine and you will find balance again. You need to find an MDS or at the least a neurologist who is knowledgeable on current PD treatment options.
  11. I get severe muscle tightness in my neck that will lead to a headache. I feel like I'm carrying my shoulders up by my ears. I have used a tens massager and biofreeze rub for relief.
  12. Oh how I wish some of you could send me rain. Pathfinder I love snakes! They fascinate me. I picked up a dead one on the road and brought it home so I could save it and see the skeleton. I put it on top of the horse trailer with a piece of mesh over it to help it turn to skeleton faster. A couple days later my DH said it was gone. What do you mean it's "gone"? Did it fall on the ground? Who would steal a dead snake????? I couldn't find it anywhere. Some bird must have thought it looked like supper. I'm glad you didn't get ran over by the deer LAD. jb, maybe the rogue deer were exiled to the US. I always liked string instruments but I'm finding myself more and more liking the sound of a piano. Marcia-how could you go to McDonalds and NOT get fries???? Nice water tower Serenity Now.
  13. Great thread! Thanks for starting it. I know the following is referring to possessions but it still makes me stop and think before fretting over the everyday stuff---including my future with PD. Its been posted on my refrigerator long before my diagnoses.
  14. You're Welcome! I use to be type "A", obsessive compulsive (still sneaks up on me sometimes) but I'm getting so much better. When I first realized that I was less obsessive I wondered if it was the beginning of apathy setting in but I don't think so now. I believe that PD has helped me put things in perspective so that I can allow the insignificant stuff to fade into the background.
  15. I have some trouble with my left hand and fingers when I'm washing my hair. They just do not want to help by moving in the appropriate manner. I also have difficulty with the twisting of my wrists. I've braided my hair every morning for the last 35 years. On an off morning my left wrist takes a second to respond AFTER my brain tells it to do its job. Sometimes now I just wear my hair in a bun. I also am slower at folding clothes because of my wrists. Turning the clothes right side out takes a little more effort. Amazing the things that use to be thoughtless chores now need some thought to carry them out.
