Suffering and hope
For a while there, I thought I was never going to feel well again. I was taking more medication than i was before, and having less 'on' time. I am having a communication problem with my neurologist at Stanford. She keeps telling me how i feel, and I keep telling her otherwise. She doesn't listen to me sometimes. She has all these charts and graphs and equations and algorithms that tell her how I am supposed to feel, but sometimes they are just dead wrong. I am going back to my neurologist at Palo Alto Medical Foundation to see what he thinks.
All that being said, I suddenly started to feel better after my last "adjustment", and now I have hope. The doctor says that sometimes it can take a year to a year and a half to get it right. Maybe I just need to be more patient.
Bob and I are going to the Parkinson's Unity Walk in NYC on April 27th. I can hardly wait! Happy Parkinson's Awareness month to everyone!
- 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.
