I could tell when I got up this morning that my balance was back to “normal.” This fluctuation in what I can do is something I’m just going to have to get used to, I guess. I did manage to get several descriptions done for eBay, but I didn’t get them on last night, because DH had a called Deacon’s meeting that didn’t get over until about 9:00, so we were late getting home. I don’t like to post items after 8:00, so they’ll go on tonight.
All the Deacon’s wives stayed in the Fellowship Hall, where we had been for Wednesday night Prayer Meeting and Worship, and visited with each other. It’s been a long time since I stayed for one of those informal gatherings, and I really enjoyed it.
It was also the first time I let them see me walk any without the cane. This on and off way it effects me is hard to explain to people, so I’ve been avoiding having to explain by using the cane at church all the time, whether I thought I needed it or not. Now that the med doses are higher, and I’m exercising more, my balance and leg strength are better more days than not. I still need the cane for certain situations, so I carry it everywhere, but I don’t always use it.
My main difficulty continues to be my digestive system. I’m just trying to wait out another week, as that’s when I’m completely off the Sinemet. If all the nausea, gas, cramping, and just generally feeling lousy don’t stop then, I’ll have to change my Gastroenterologist appointment to a sooner date. I’m just telling myself to be patient for now, over and over and over.
