Parkinson's disease awareness month draws to a close tomorrow but Parkinson's will still be here. This has been a particularly rough month. I think it is no exaggeration to say that the last time I cried this much, I was an infant. My speech is unclear. I keep having trouble getting up when I have been sitting and I keep having trouble pulling up my pants.
Then, this evening, I realized that maybe what's been wrong is that I have been "off." I've been conservative with my Deep Brain Stimulation settings. Because I have not wanted to injure myself with out-of-control dyskinesia, maybe too conservative.
Ha ha! I turned my voltage up and I have not cried for over three hours! That's a relief!
