Parkinson’s Disease is quirky. It’s like playing “Pin the Tail on the Donkey” when trying to get an accurate diagnosis. And the quirkiness is really evident when trying to get the medications adjusted to relieve the symptoms.
My last few blog posts have been fairly depressing. The last one said, “What do you do when you just don’t know?”.
Well, I’ve figured it out. Now I know. I just keep putting one foot in front of the other….hoping there’s no freezing of my gait to keep me from moving!
Cycling off of my meds is a scary, intimidating thought. But come to think of it, getting ON my medication was a scary thing too! Back then I had no idea what would happen with the dopamine agonists. And so now I’ve facing the same fears….but in reverse? So it seems.
Yesterday I spent time going to each of the blogs that are listed on the side bar (——–>). I read of the uncertainty that other PwP have. I read about their fears too. They are also just putting one foot in front of the other, taking life as it comes, facing their fears one at a time. Some of those bloggers are cycling their fears away. Others are involved in support groups for PwP. And still others are blogging and taking the progression of their disease in stride with grace.
So, since my fears are actually the reverse of what I’ve already done – I’ll just put one foot in front of the other….and walk in reverse – facing the uncertainty that is Parkinson’s Disease.
