O.K.; maybe I spoke too soon

I think maybe I did push myself a little too far last weekend. All this week I've been having major "wearing off" problems; I can't even do my crochet after around 8:30 to 9:00 at night. I'm so stiff in the mornings, too. It's hard to even walk. My meds don't even seem to kick in until after 8:00 a.m., and I take my first dose at 5:00 - 5:30 a.m.!

Well, I'll wait a week or so and then call my neuro and see if there's a medication adjustment I can make. Ughh.

In the meantime, our son has brought home a whole bunch of friends this weekend, so I'm not going to be able to relax much. Maybe that's a good thing. We'll see...

A friend directed me to your blog. The articles and comments are, of course, terrific but what caught my eye first is the background photo. Redwoods? Santa Cruz? Land of Medicine Buddha?

"Land of Medicine Buddha" I love it! Actually, it's a funky little town in the Santa Cruz mountains, and though I didn't take the picture myself, that is what it looks like around our house in the redwoods. Thanks for dropping in, Steve!


About Me

My photo
I'm a lucky lady. I have a wonderful husband of 27 years, a fantastic 25 year old son (I'm so proud of him!) a loving and supportive family, the best friends in the world, a job that I love, and... Parkinson's Disease. I was diagnosed in September 2006. That was a jolt, but I'm learning to deal with it.
