Checking in

Hi, thanks for stopping in. It’s been a few since I’ve posted so I figured it was time. My PD has been tricky these last few weeks. Random bouts of fatigue coupled with the stresses of everyday life. My tremors have started to show themselves a bit more and my overall stiffness has increased exponentially. The choice is tough, suffer with the disease or suffer from an increase of side effects from the medicine used to ease life with PD.
The thing that most people don’t get is the medicine for PD is only a patch to help use and replace the dopamine my brain isn’t producing and distributing correctly. Thus it only works as most of the time. So when it doesn’t life’s pretty hardcore.
Though many good things are coming about as well. I built my first greenhouse. 🎉🎉🎉 it’s kind of a big deal because I’m the last guy that should build or draw a straight line.

That being said about my carpentry skills I think I did pretty good.
It’s 4am now so I’ll post photos another time. I’ll be sending two paintings East this week so that’s exciting and we just got a giant pile of dirt so gardening with great verve will soon commence 🌲🤗🌲.
Oh HUGE news, I found my first four leaf clover the day after St.Patricks day!!

  1. I just want to let you know how much I appreciate your posts. My husband has Young Onset Parkinson’s. It’s a struggle for us both. Your honesty about the difficulties and your ability to move forward are refreshing. Thank you!

    • Thank you, I’m so sorry to hear about your husband. Parkinson’s sucks. You must be a strong person and kind person. How far along is he if you don’t mind me asking? I’m about 5 years in from my dx. During my first two years PD cost me my job,wife,kids and life as I knew it. The meds and disease can do horrible things to the brains ability to perceive and process life. I wish the two of you the very best. Stay strong for each other.
      Sincerely

      • congrats on the one year anniversary. making a house a home is not easy. i’m sorry to hear about the mind racing moments and your feelings on life lately. i wish the pd meds lasted longer or more than “most of the time.” however, i think your recent good news is very promising. now that the weather is getting better, hopefully you’ll see some beautiful flowers soon.
