Seven years ago, I began doing the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®. Of course, back then it did not have a name…it was just what I was doing. At the same time, I began keeping a hand-written Parkinson’s Daily Journal. It is time to share my journal with all of you. Here is my November 5, 2009 journal entry, seven years ago today.
“11/05/09. Up at 4. Snail’s pace. Got to the kitchen at 4:09. Yuck. Today should be interesting. I have a 2pm appointment at Mom’s doctor, Dr. Sanchez-Ramos.
I will need to leave at 12:45 to be there when they want me there at 1:30. I guess there is a lot of paperwork to fill out even though they took all of my personal info and health insurance info two days ago.
Life is very hard on Sally with my Parkinson’s. I wish I could do more to ease her burdens…getting better is step #1, and I am focused on that!
I am too wiped out to from the day to write. See 11/06/09 for rest of what occurred today.”
Okay. No real suspense here…I got diagnosed with Parkinson’s. It was just a long day and the most amount of driving I had done in a long time. So, I was too tied to recount the day’s events that evening.
As you can see, my adrenaline driven mind was so consumed with getting to the neurologist’s office on time (being perfect), that I wrote about it in my journal.
Since there is not much to say today about this day, please remember that we are 5 days into the November 30-day Challenge 2016. Click here to get a pep talk for my 30-day challenge 2016.
You are worth it!!!
All my best,
Please note: I will be posting one post per day through the middle of November. If you subscribe to receive email notifications when I post new blog posts and you would prefer to not receive those daily email notifications, simply send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and let me know that you do not wish to receive a daily email with a link to each post. I will remove you from the list through the middle of November and add you back on the list after the middle of November. However, I still would recommend you checking the blog on a regular basis as it will contain very useful information for understanding my journey and helping with your journey.
