THIS JUST IN FROM ANDYVERSE CORPORATE’S EXCLUSIVE 24HR A DAY COVERAGE OF THE BATTLE ROYALE BETWEEN OUR FOUNDER, CEO AND ALL AROUND GOOD GUY ANDY WARD KING AND THE DEVILS OWN HANDMAIDEN, pARKINSON’S DISEASE - TODAYS BATTLE WAS AN UPSET VICTORY FOR MR ANDY WINING WITH 57 DOTS AGAINST pARKINSON’S - 11 - MORE BELOW...
mr p is not only a $@#%^& of the highest degree he is also very lazy and has never done an honest days work in his miserable life - he is a hack - he must hire ringers, nefarious drifters, to do his dirty work of him. He can't torment me on his own. He hires Depression, that often ends in suicide - Injury and death from falls - Pneumonia - Dystonia (extreme pain) - Severe Side Effects to the medications required to keep the wheelchairs and nursing homes away.- even psoriasis, not life threatening but it can still break your heart. The list goes on and on and on and on...
For me (every one with parkinson’s experiences different symptoms - different timetables - different differences) the nefarious drifter of late has been a condition that around 65% of parkinson’s people endure at one time or another. I’ll call him by his legal name (notice no caps) gastroparesisis. This is a condition where the stomach can’t empty food properly and, in my case, is caused by pd. It is marked by severe bloating (I become “BLOAT BOY”) and extreme discomfort. The pickle is that this condition causes the medication I take for pd not to be efficiently absorbed by my stomach - the drug needed to stop me from becoming: ”BLOAT BOY’ is stopped by the very same condition it was sent to fight. It is quite uncomfortable and I am halted in my tracks during one of it attacks. - attacks where I have to use a hand towel to keep me from drooling on your carpet - attacks that can last any where from 15 minutes to up to an hour - attacks that happen no matter what, how much, or when I eat. It is really quite the nuisance - an ever increasing drain on my quality of life with up to eight or ten of these episodes a day. It is really quite the nuisance
But not all is bad news - the Cavalry had been ordered to my rescue.
For reasons known only to family and friends I will readers digest the rest of the story.
The battle with the interloper began in earnest today with the arrival a new (to me) medication my also new (to me) neurologist prescribed. I have been running it through its paces - using my body is its own Bonneville Salt Flats taking as prescribed and eating pretty much whatever I want - whenever I want to. Protein - Dairy - Sweet treats all of it. So far so good - attack free. I can still feel the enemy within me fighting this charging cavalry that has come to my rescue. So far so good - Hallelujah, attack free at last. I’ll keep you posted
MY WIFE HAS A BLUE TONGUE (and I think I have problems)
I feel sorry for myself sometimes, then I remember the old adage “I felt bad because I have a broke brain... until I met a man with no head”.
This how I rule my life - with absurdities and non sequiturs that only I (and a lucky few - some I know - some I don’t - some I am yet to met) understand and comprehend. These are internal and personal dead sea scrolls waiting to be discovered by someone who knows much more about these matters than I - still they won’t be able to cash the spiritual paycheck I have burning a hole in my pocket .
Yes my wife has a blue tongue and I am jealous. I am also jealous of her artistic skill and talent, for she can draw a horse that looks like a horse. When I try to draw a horse it looks like a machine gun. But, I still love her dearly - in spite of all of her talents.
A QUICK WORD ABOUT ALL HAMMOCKS GREAT AND SMALL
To us here in Gr00vyLand Hammocks are more than just a lunarosistic relaxation arrangement - more than just a soft and pretty face in which to lay our tired bodies. In Gr00vyLand, as all of the AndyVers3 they are a way of life - they are a religious sacrament - they are a drug - they are holy. They are also the best format from which to view the Earth from space. So, if your incessant worrying about the very real - ever increasing possibility of Zombie Pandas taking over your neighborhood, if this quasi delusional worrying has manifest itself as a bad rash in your swimsuit area do what we, citizens of The Principality of Gr00vyLand do - author a quick email to the GREAT Giraffe (or someone like her) - acquire a balm of undone origin, available nowhere, apply sparingly to the affected area - take two hammocks and call #14 in the morning.

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/\\
