No Such Thing as Status Quo with Me — 4 Comments

  1. DB, I so understand the need to clear clutter that just seems to accumulate when illness strikes…purging all that “stuff” definitely clears my outlook on life, making positive thinking much more prominent.

    As you say, however, it is not the easiest thing to do when you are so ill. Perhaps a family work bee would be possible…you could order food in for a thank you dinner.

  2. Sounds like a good idea, Marion. The stuff doesn’t even faze my hubby, and bothers me big time. I think it’s one of those OCD tendencies from the Requip.

  3. Thanks, Joe, for adding another medical term to my growing vocabulary – extra-pyramidal. And giving me an idea of how to get the help without feeling helpless!!

  4. I’m glad to hear that you had a good Thanksgiving.

    I love Marion’s idea about having a “family work bee.” My mother always feels so guilty when any of us kids come over to do some work around the house for her, so I’ll send my children in the house with all the ingredients for one of my favorite treats (like rhubarb pie! mmm, mmm…I can taste it now, just thinking about it)That way she gets the house work done without feeling guilty, the grandchildren get to spend time with grandma, I get rhubarb pie, and the children get to learn my mothers secret recipe for the pie…okay, that’s to my benifit too since I’m the only one in the family that likes rhubarb since my father passed away.

    Sorry to hear about the “tongue tricks.” They are more than likely caused by one of your meds. Unfortunately a lot of PD meds will cause what is called extra-pyramidal effects, i.e. uncontrollable movements, primarily of the arms, face, and especially the tongue.
