parkinson's disease and other stuff

Sorry about the no-show yesterday -- it was the day from hell, but a great learning experience.

When you have Parkinson's Disease, you soon find out that some days are worse than others. Yesterday was the worst yet, and I managed to compound it by totally screwing up my various medications, just to prove I guess that there's no situation so bad that it can't be made a lot worse, if you work at it.

So by one in the afternoon, after I'd melted down into a quivering puddle of goo, my good woman, who's sweet as agave juice and stronger than dirt, picked me up, shook me a couple of times, and began the process of putting Humpty-Dumpty back together again.

It took a while, but here I sit this morning, lookin and feelin my best, and ready for anything. So evil-doers, beware.

Hello Dave I didnt mean to have a similar blog name, I only discovered yours just now.

There is some comfort in it though. You know what they say... great minds think alike!

When I read this blog I thought of the horrible medication mix-ups and consequent meltdowns I have had at times.(You are ahead of me in this one, you have a 'good woman', to pick you up and shake you off).

I love your humour by the way. We have to have that.

I grew tired of the medication mix-up roundabout ... confusion, mix-up, more confusion...and OH Dear on it goes...then I got the pharmacy to make up Webster Packs for me and I haven't looked back.

Keep parkinon and keep blogging!
