Wearing off again
So what's with the whole wearing off thing? I understand that sometimes the medication wears off before the next dose, but why some days and not others? There are days when I feel 100% all day long, and there are others when I feel like the medication isn't really working at all. I will have to pay more attention and see if I can find the common denominator there. Maybe it's my work, but I don't think so.
The coffee mug in the picture was a Christmas gift; I just love it! It says "ON" when the mug is hot, and "OFF" when it isn't. I don't think that the person who gave it to me was thinking in terms of PD, but it certainly is appropriate. I find things like that very funny, but not everyone shares my warped sense of humor, I suppose.
- 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.
