This is not really a question or a topic which requires advice, i just wanted to share this, feel free to respond. over the last 9 months i have been asking myself "why me?" " i try to live right, i go out of my way to help people, i have always been faithful to my husband and my god." "WHY ME!" i was watching a lifetime movie on saturday morning while my son ran around and played, i wasn't even out of bed yet. i forget the name of the movie, i think it was "if these eyes could see," but it was about a lady named Joan Brock. joan had gone blind while working with blind children. she was raising a daughter and her husband had passed away. toward the end of the movie she started speaking publically about her blindness and she got the idea from her doctor who wanted her to speak to some of his med students about her condition. anyway during one of her speeches she said she often asked "why me" and she finally said to her self, "why not me-move on, and what am i going to do next." that was a light bulb moment for me, because i have been so hung up on why this happened to me, i've lost sleep, cried everyday, and just stopped living. i think im a good person and i did not deserve this, but had it not been me it would have been SOMEONE. i realize we all go thru storms and to be honest, my life had been pretty simple and normal up until this all happened. i don't know why some of us go thru the things we do and it seems like others around us never go thru anything this tramatic, but i have come to realize that this is my storm and like every thing else, if i hold on......this too shall pass. i've got a lot of living to do, and it starts today. i know that i will never forget this and may cry every once and a while, but this will not take away another day of my life. my message to you all is to just hold on-change is coming. i never thought i would be saying that, because i had really lost all hope, but today-i am hopeful. each day is a new day-a chance to start anew. make it a great day and be greatful for the things that are still normal in your life.

Hi all! This is for those of you that have or have had the same neurologist for 4 years or more. I have been with mine now since 2009. He is one of the best movement disorder secialists in the midwest. I know he is extremely busy on the lecture circuit now and in fact not taking new patients there is a huge waiting list for him. BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
