Perhaps the amount of the medication we need reflexes on what’s going on in our lives.
For the last two years I have been slowly losing weight and I can see why. My appetite had dwindled away I not only never gave food a thought but when I did eat I really couldn’t manage to eat much at all.
If I felt peckish I didn’t know what I wanted so lots of times it was a bar of chocolate. When I saw my Neurologist and he looked at how much I had lost he downed my meds, I am so pleased he did, I can’t tell you how much better I feel. I now have a variety of things in the fridge, not just bread for toast. I went to get myself a snack and ended up with Bacon, Egg, fried potatoes and tomatoes and guess what I ate the lot.
Looking at what’s going on in my life I realise that a lot has changed, I don’t have the stress of my elderly parents it’s sad to say that their deaths freed me from the constant worry. Trying to cope with Parky which neither of them understood, and constantly rushing round to see them was a hard time.
I was terrified that Parky would be back and be worse than ever but as yet I might get a bit stiff from time to time but I can live with that if I’m eating better.
I am also sleeping much better the odd bad night but you can’t get it right all the time. I think I am also moving around in the night thought I’m not sure but I don’t seem to be as stiff in the morning.
This maybe a flash in the pan, but I have everything crossed so watch this space.
