Sharing my life and times dealing with Parkinson's Disease and everything else.

Awake again at some ungodly hour; it's almost 5:00 a.m. and I've been awake for 3 hours now. i've heard that some large percentage of Parkinson's patients suffer from insomnia, but I wonder if it's the disease or the medication that causes it. Probably a little of both. It's so quiet; I wonder how many other Parkies like me are awake now? So strange; I never was an early riser until now. The good news is that I won't accidentally sleep through "Sunday Morning"! Always a silver lining. Well, I guess i'd better go take some dangerous drugs now...
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.
