  1. Pardon me Dave. I have a right to my opinion as you or anyone does. Dont give me advice on protocal for this forum. I have read far worse on other threads here. Maybe the person responsible for this thread or repeat supporters share some responsibility for the content. I totally stand for what i have writte.
  2. Discussing religions for the purpose of comfort is one thing. Pushing a religion for the purpose of conversion is another. Ninety percent of the content here was generated by Linda in her effort to convert the so called lost souls to the glory of her god. The recent post that bothered me most was the one she posted regarding the scientific documentation that supports her position that LGBT community persons actions are a choice rather than a natural condition of their birth. What has this to do with PWP? IMHO again this forum is no place for this anti LGBT propaganda.
  3. Im trying to get benefits from the Camp Lejeune NC water issue. Check Google on this issue details and attys that will take your case to the VA for you.
  4. Dancing Bear - You said you would support anyone starting a thread on these issues. Well IMHO this isn't the place for any of those topics. If it's not directly related to PWP then I would not be in favor of it. There are many other blogs or forums that cover every issue on earth. If i want to discuss religion i will go to a religious forum and likewise for any other subject. If I want to learn and discuss Parkinson's Disease I will come to this forum or other regarding the same points.
  5. This forum isnt an open or religious forum. The interest is Parkinsons for the benefit of PWP and their support group. Why this thread has been allowed to continue is beyond me. It has nothing to do with my belief system. Christians can always justify inclusion in any group for the pure opportunity of soul harvesting. I know i dont have to read it if i dont like it. That isnt the point at all and you know it. If there was a thread on here for the pure opportunity of supporting the LGBT community you would be the first to complain. Maybe some of the PWP fit into this group. You dont know. I see no difference.
  6. Because im not aware of the history or personalities of this thread. Just voicing my displeasure and opinion.
  7. RE: ‘Sexuality and Gender: Findings from the Biological, Psychological, and Social Sciences’ By: Matt Barber I personally find this subject offensive on this website supporting persons with Parkinson's Disease. What in the world does this have to do with PD? I know I'm going to get grief from some of you for this but - hey! That's the way it goes. Most every group, every religion, every social structure is always questioning the personal habits or beliefs of someone else. We can't just allow people to be human and pursue their own brand of happiness without constant ridicule and derision from so called persons of faith and perfection. Everything we as humans do to survive is apparently the target of some other group that always thinks they have the answer for everyone else. I know "Love the sinner but not the sin". I've heard that crap all my life. It's not enough to love someone but you want to change them as well to met your or your Gods definition of right and wrong. Enough already - IMHO this forum isn't the place to proselytize against the LGBT community or evangelize for your certain religious beliefs. Very offensive.
  8. I was serving on the USS Coral Sea CVA43 between about 1/1/1967 to June 1970. Spent 3 Vietnam cruises but have no contact with land. Also my ship isnt on approved list with the VA. I do have PD and was considering the VA for treatment. I am relocating to Biloxi Ms where a VA hospital is near by. Just wondering if the VA will treat me since my PD may not be service connected. Wondering how good the care would be compared to local physicians. Cant locate a MDS in the immediate area so may default my care to the VA.
  9. I seem to remember something about the VA doing excellent work with Parkinson's Disease. Does anyone have any information regarding this? Thanks
  10. Just saying all information and experiences are greatly appreciated
  11. I haven't had any experience with or like the symptom you mentioned but feel based on everything I've read it could simply be a another symptom of PD. Since PD can exhibit any number of odd / strange behavior. I'm 71 and am always wondering if it's age or PD or something else bothering me. It's like living on the edge all the time. But was wondering about my own special symptoms if i may interject here. I've been experience a progression of weakness in two places on my body. First my thighs will feel very weak at times, not necessarily tired or fatigued but simply very weak. I also get the same symptoms across my upper chest parallel and into the front of my shoulders. I've always had great blood pressure and have had in recent history EKG'S and echo cardiograms with always good results - so don't think it's my heart. Feeling at a loss but i do have an appointment with my MDS in a week so will check with her.
  12. Diabetes drug slows experimental Parkinson's disease progression, human trials to begin next year Date: December 7, 2016 Source: Van Andel Research Institute Summary: A new investigational drug originally developed for type 2 diabetes is being readied for human clinical trials in search of the world's first treatment to impede the progression of Parkinson's disease following publication of new research.
  13. Benadryl will also help with too much saliva. Benedryl was used for PD prior to CL
  14. If there is a benefit to marijuana CBD and THC why not partake? There are articles noteing the full range of cannabis properties are best benefits. Im not crazy about the THC high but if the best benefit comes in utilizing the entire plant that is what i will do. There are different effects to each strain of cannabis. The THC can be utilized without much of a high at all. Do the due dilligence of research.
