Re: Devastating News - *poss trig*

Many thanks for your good wishes, belle. i hope the same for you too. I'm sure the nurses on the Parkinson's Uk helpline are marvelous, but like some others on the forum, i don't really like using the phone. With my Asperger's, i find it easier to organise my thoughts in an email or letter than in a...

Re: Devastating News - *poss trig*t you agi

sally, as i'm sure you know, nicotine is as a powerful drug, from which you're now suffering very unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. On one list of dangerous drugs i saw, it was rated ninth and more so than LSD and ecstasy. As well as helping protect you against Parkinson's it also lowers your risk of ...

Re: my story

sometimes sex is like insomniac trying for sleep - they more you try for it the less achievable it becomes. i'm inclined to think the problem is the medication, but then If libido wasn't a problem before and the medication hasn't changed, then \i don't understand why it is now. but most psychiatric ...

Re: I shattered my arm

really sorry to hear that you're having a bad day. i've broken both my legs and dislocated my elbow - not now and not all at the same time - and I too found it very difficult at times. maybe you could think about reading/watching all those books/films you always wanted to read/watch, but didn't have...

Re: Devastating News - *poss trig*

Re: I shattered my arm

i'm very sorry to hear this. it would be unusual not to be depressed after such a traumatic injury. You're doing right to phone friends during the day, as it's essential that you enlist as much support as possible at this stressful time. try and keep as active mentally and physically (mobility permi...
