In the almost four months since i've been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, it has been a wild ride. My gait has changed dramatically with steps requiring me to concentrate on going "heel-toe" for each step. Not only that. I now walk with a walking stick that my grandsons seem to enjoy using too.
Besides that I have trouble getting out of bed and have trouble getting off the toilet. Going up and down steps has become more of a chore, especially the just below the surface feeling that I could lose my balance.
Most recently have been the tremors with my head. However, my wife-Gladys has watched me carefully and has seen no movement in my head. Nevertheless, I feel the movement inside my head. It feels like constant movement, even though it doesn't show.
Right at this moment it has slowed down, but it can come back at any time. What does this all mean? I have no idea. The way I understand Parkinsons can present itself a variety of ways.
Is this frustrating me? It could very easily. So far I've been able to fend off the serious frustration. It's like having a double-feature playing inside my head while this is happening.
