A little something to think about

Ditto for me - 15 day trip through the Rockies with lots of hiking and only had one tough day. But I've been pretty tired since getting home and tomorrow we head tothe lake in Ontario for the summer. It's good to look ahead to fun things!

LAD…..FYI personally I'm having one of those "bad" days. Seeing what you've written on the forum is up lifting, and we all need to support one another. Nice timing and thank you. For better or worse I'm headed out to exercise. It's a mainstay of my diet to combat PD. So maybe your message will "pay it forward" through me to someone else. Who ever you are if you're  contemplating exercise but not quite there yet……do it for the ones you love and those who love you. A bad day of PD with exercise is better than a bad day with PD without exercise. :)

 

Hope you are still exercising!

So two exercise classes today-one aerobics & one weight training. I had some crazy tremors but once they stopped I had a great day....

intense exercise = crazy temporary tremors = great day

I think I am ok with that!

LAD,

Yep still exercising. 

Saw my newest neurologist yesterday. She's fantastic! It's a 4 hour drive to see her and she's willing to spend quality time with her patients. I realize this will likely change again, meaning having to see a different neurologist. Insurance plan made the change for me. But for now…..I'll take it!

Both she and my primary are adamant about keeping  on the exercise path. Mostly because what it does for my situation.

One of the things that came up in discussion was trying to plan to do things now and not put them off. Even though I'm on a positive path with PD…..no one knows how it will affect me in the long run. It could be minor, or major. The point was…..do it now…..because you don't want to be looking back in life wishing I would have done this or that!!

My take on that is regardless of whether you have PD or not, life here is only so long for each of us. We just happen to have PD.

Sounds silly, but this was an eye opener for me. It wasn't a dramatic statement made to someone with a terminal illness. It was just a matter-of-fact of wake up and do it now or in the near future……….because that's all we really have.

I would guess we all have similar experiences with PD. It's a roller coaster with ups and downs. Today I happen to be on the up side.

Nice!  Yes my dr always puts "Be present " on my discharge instructions. I am doing things now as well! I plan to keep on doing PD and all! 

 

Glad you're doing well & keep exercising- it's hard sometimes but worth it in the long run!

I like that, Ginger.  And awakening to a sunny, fresh new day after a good night's sleep helps keep a positive perspective.  :-)
