Happy and Good Day to you too...
Whew! it’s been a tiring two days. Kathleen and i just returned from seeing my Neurologist in Gainesville. We left yesterday since the appointment was very early and could take some time, so we stayed the night in a hotel across the street. After having a nice late dinner with some Gainesville friends, we went back to the hotel for good nights sleep... Huh? Wha?
One of the requirements for new medicine I was trying out today was that I stop taking my regular parkinson medicine the afternoon before - medicine that helps me do stupid things like sleep - walk - eat - talk. Like a scratching, junkie, rockstar going cold turkey in an undisclosed location, I was cut off from my supply... Huh? Wha? But, although we didn’t much sleep, I’m used to that, I woke up feeling great - the best i have in a while. Now, the reason for me to stop my meds was so that they see me in what is called an “off” state, that way they would know if the new medicine works.
It was the longest I had gone without my medication since I started it. i was not "off" I was “on”!
I was SUPERMAN Huh? Wha? What had I done different?
When I got to the clinic the Doctor swore that if she where to see me on the street she would not know that I had pd, and if didn't start feeling bad soon she couldn’t do the test. Huh? Wha? Around 11pm, well after when I normally would have began taking my meds at home I finally was “off” enough to see if the new drug worked (it’s not really new it’s like what I’m taking in patch form now only slightly different.) And it worked! Kinda. Huh? Wha?
This is all really boring if you don’t have pd, and I don’t want any TLDR messages.(Too Long Didn’t Read) so I’ll stop here for today.
I’ll be doing tests on my self (under my doctors supervision) to find out Huh? Wha? concerning this Superman Effect.

Until Tomorrow - Good Night (I’m tired, but a good tired) Huh? Wha?
just say yes!
meet Andy Ward King, a professional musician and artist until a diagnosis of parkinons dsease at age 49 forced him into an early retirement., he now uses his music, his art along with the whimsical world he has created in this blog as therapy to ( as he puts it ) outsmart his brain and make the daily battles with parkinson’s a little bit easier, to give him that all important reason to get up on the morning, to make his life worth living. Andy has learned how to say NO to gving up \ NO to depression and apathy \ NO to following willingly the road of decline that stretches before him. he learned that to say no to all of these things all one has to do is say yes. Andy has learned to just say YES to life/\\
