A friend of mine said that having Parkinson’s is a struggle everyday. He said that for him it was like constantly fighting your way out of a paper bag. I don’t quite understand the analogy, but I’ll put it this way. Everyday when I wake up, I wonder if my symptoms will show up and terrorize my mind and body or will I have a somewhat easier day what do I mean by that?
1. Will I be able to walk without a struggle? Will I have numb feet, toes that curl under so much that it’s painful to walk, heavy legs that they fell like they are in cement blocks and/or slowness when I walk?
2. Will I lose my balance when I walk up or down steps in front of others? Or will I walk so unsteady that I look like I’ve been drinking? I’ve walked into walls; I’ve walked into people, even my best friend! 3. Will my pills where off before I get home and prevent me from getting to my apartment without help from a friend? 4. Will my anxiety and depression be so bad that I can’t stop crying and just want to stay in bed? friends because you’re . . have chronic don’t illness . It’s degrading humiliating. pain when . to yourself able because feeling understand friends and family think it’s easier for them not to hear your hurts and pain? 11.Will you just want to scream at the top of your lungs that you are the same Barbie you use to be. You just have some challenges to deal different for each person that has it. Their symptoms can be completely opposite. But we still are the same person we always were.
Not bad for 25 years difference.
Those are 24 years difference. I’m still the same fun person!
