    From my humble perspective, embodying the dragon, for your own good, is the most sane approach. Get thee to someone who can begin to comprehend. It is isolating trying to explain something that is inexplicable.

    And self-care! I see the challenge so clearly. The need for vigilance. But that very vigilance is actually probably part of what created the situation to begin with. It will be reflected back on you at the most poignant of moments. After caring for weeks non-stop, the slightest diversion of focus will result in some sort of catastrophe either physical, or much, much worse, the allegation that insinuates that you have been selfish.

    In a very tiny, miniscule way, I can identify the cycle with my puppy days. It wasn't the damage to the objects being chewed so much as the inability to see chewing and swallowing as harmful that ravages the companion's mind, which is walking its own tightrope of sleep depravation. Wondering if there are any puppy-proofing sorts of options in your vastly more complex scenario?

    Caring about you from afar!

    Life is one long prat-fall; a losing battle with decrepitude. It's the same for everyone - those with chronic disease (especially neurodegenerative) just KNOW they're losing earlier. Borrowing from your pensive and beautiful buzz, Adaptations to Emotional Flooding, I just have a little root-rot!

    I am deeply touched by your buzz @Lisa Vanderburg. Your story is full of anticipation and I understand fully your saying that anticipation makes us edgy. I almost "melted" like an ice cube while reading " I have strong opinions, but clearly more lily-livered about my own set of values, because the lines keep changing or blurring. They didn’t always. If it appears I’m describing a stranger; we’re getting closer"! This is a deep description of many of us and I am not sure I could ever expose my feelings so eloquently and creatively. I wonder how do you make the time to write and comment. You are a super human.

    Outstanding progress, @Gary Sharpe !

    I try to keep my comments and my excitement in check as I have seen you break through (or work around) one challenge after another. Sometimes your leaps forward cause me to forget the big picture.

    I realize, as you do, that you can't expect every day to be a breakthrough, yet every day you keep hope alive that you will at least maintain most of your progress to date, and--when the time is right--make another step (or leap) forward.

    I celebrate your struggle as much as I do your progress. You have given us all a lesson in focus, a lesson in being open to possibilities, a lesson in letting go of anger and pain, and a lesson in courage, friend.

    Happy re-wiring!

    #4 and I am the living proof of what @Deb Helfrich just said. I still have bad days (having one today), but eating enough calories, keeping the blood sugar up and drinking plenty of water is so important when re-starting to move again. The problem with Parkinson's is the signals between body and brain get all messed up so we tend not to "get" that we need fuel or water or oxygen! Thanks @Gerald Hecht - back at you
    Deb Helfrich
    23/06/2016 #4 Deb Helfrich
    @Dave Rynne - what @Gerald Hecht is alluding to is some of his old research on exercise. It is absolutely, positively the case that despite all the signals from the brain to stop moving, that it is important to continually build in a routine of movement. There are a number of levels here. First of all, just succumbing causes degeneration in all the muscles, tendons, etc of the body to become rigid and weak, exacerbating the symptoms. Then there is the oxygenation that occurs when we focus on movement, which doesn't need to be anywhere near what we commonly consider 'exercise'. Finally, movement and keeping busy reduces stress at a biochemical level because stress uses dopamine.

    Movement is the Definition of Life and even though all the signals are asking him to stop moving, it is utterly important to continue moving through the stiffness, rigidity, tremors, and tics. This needs to be a conscious daily decision in the arsenal of living with PD and is something that it is crucial for the caregiver to be firmly dedicated to supporting. I would be honored to talk with your mom if she is interested.

    The Sleeper Awakens.

    As I write this it is four months to the day since Deb and I started the Out-Thinking Parkinson's project. Throughout this time, Deb has repeatedly challenged me to answer this question:

    "Why do you think you developed Parkinson's?"

    Deb's question is not really about the medical reasons for my Parkinson's diagnosis, but seeking the deeper truths of what it actually means to have Parkinson's. Until very recently, I had no answer. But as I've improved my condition, both mental and physical, I'm more able to tune in to what is actually happening in my mind and body when the Parkinson's takes hold. As I've pushed the envelope of my understanding and incorporated more interventions into my own life, tested, tried, self-experimented, it has become clearer to me.

    The answer to Deb's question is, for me, a Very Uncomfortable Truth. While I have no idea why my Parkinson's started, what biological or environmental factors caused it, looking back now, I believe I understand why it developed and progressed so quickly....

    BREAKING NEWS: PARKINSON'S CRACKED?

    Here Dr Gary Sharpe, PhD demonstrates an exceedingly simple way which he has found that seems to allow him to repeatedly switch his Parkinson's symptoms off and return to movement. If People with Parkinson's would like to try this themselves, Gary urges them to start gently and build up very safely, very slowly and supervised to this point of vigorous head and face rubbing strategy, perhaps over a number of days and to stop if any adverse reactions are indicated. If they do try this, at their own risk, he requests them to feedback their results as they slowly build up.

    He suggests we use social media for the biggest "clinical trial" of Parkinson's in history... The feedback will allow him and other scientists to determine which cohorts of the Parkinson's community this works for and which factors affect the outcomes. In turn this will allow them to build up more and more optimized and bespoke solutions quickly. Gary sure hopes this is not unique to himself and others can benefit from his remarkable finding! Even if it only works "out-of-the-box" for a small percentage, it points to a new research frontier for Parkinson's research.

    Gary created this post directly after making the video - he was able to type and think freely - he is currently switched completely on. He finds that less vigorous head and face stroking also allows him temporary relief enough to perform small tasks. Again, we are in new territory and Gary urges a cautionary approach.
