It’s the Stress, Stupid

Will I never get it?
Suddenly my Parkinson’s symptoms spike through the roof. I get pain in weird places. My meds wear off super fast.
I wander around in a fog.  I can’t mentally connect to changed circumstances. 
Have I suddenly had a falling-off the-cliff moment with my PD progression?  What did I do wrong?
It’s the news thing again. It’s Trump madness, this time his Covid-19 diagnosis and hospitalization.

Stress am I, which is Ol’ Doc Parkinson’s helpmate in bringing out my worst PD symptoms.How can I forget my recent blog on the connection, ‘The Clarifying Power of What Next.” (Sept. 14)

I care deeply about what’s happening to my country. It’s tearing itself apart. The 2020 presidential campaign is a scene from “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest.”

I have to bloody remember that stress fries my autonomic nervous system.  I need to go to my “Happy Place” where a Perdomo 20th Anniversary awaits lighting and a glass of Merlot is being poured.

  1. For me, I don’t think that it is stress but something has taken hold of me lately making it very difficult to walk (even without  gum) and the evil inside me is trying hard to make me fall.  Maybe I should chart my biorhythms to see if I am at a point of three concurrent valleys.  I cannot identify any causation.
