In an effort to help people understand what a day in a life of PD is like. This weekend I was able to go see a cool 80’s band Tears for Fears. Nostalgic really. It was an outside event in the evening so it was a tad cool and the ground a bit hard on the hips, Ha. I sound like an old man. Either way it was lovely. Today Monday, my body and mind are slow. The tendons in my hips and shoulders are flared up causing pain in an 6-7 level. My silly right shoulder keeps freezing up, or “catching”. My mood is fine though I feel a bit lazy. I should be clean and straightening up the house but I’m exhausted. See with Parkinson’s disease it’s all about pace, on the best of days. Otherwise it’s a Rollercoaster from hell. So I pick and choose my battle carefully these days. Busy weekend means slow Monday maybe Tuesday as well. A day painting 6-7 hrs means a day of rest. A walk to the store equals a two hr nap. Eating is done in little bird sized portions of fruit and nuts every three hour.
Anyhow today has been okay. I’ve been able to focus long enough to make sure I have a ride to my appointments this week. I don’t have money anymore so I don’t really worry about that kind of stuff. I have food, paint and friends/family so I’m good. Here is a look at some pieces I’ve been working on.
Here is a Close-up of the Gemini piece. Lots more coming on this one. Right then it’s of to Napland for a bit as the fatigue is quicker than I today. Cheers and have a great Monday. I hope all are well.
Please remember to be brave be bold and thrive in the life you have. You never know when things will change.
