This is an exciting morning. I turned on my computer and there are many comments written on the blog posts. It is refreshing to see how many people are following the Recipe for Recovery and are sharing their success stories and helping each other. One comment, though, struck me because it came from Teri Rye who recently informed us that her goal of being completely off of her medications was the end of October. Here is what she wrote:

Hooray, Leo! I’m excited that you were able to have a vacation without pills! I took my last Mirapex last Saturday and I’m still functioning! Imagine that! Faith and a positive attitude make this battle easier…and a SMILE! I am smiling with you, Leo! We WILL recover!
Congratulations Teri! How powerful is this: “I took my last Mirapex last Saturday and I’m still functioning.” Also, the way Teri delivered her wonderful news was in a congratulatory note to Leo, cheering on Leo for having had the courage to leave her pills at home and take a vacation. Congratulations Leo!
And Teri finishes her note to Leo with, “I am smiling with you, Leo! We WILL recover!”
No doubt about that!!!
All my best,
