Sooooo major break through today and I wanted to share, life really isn't always bad even though at times when dealing with this disorder it feels like it is. My daughter was annoyingly helpful today which is actually normal on a good day and we have a terrible cycle about it because we want to acknowledge teh good behavior so even when it is excessivly disruptive and annoying we just smalie and praise her, i got told 15 times that the baby kicked off her shoe and she brought it to mea each time she cleaned up all the toys the baby was playing with every time i left teh room and then came and told me she interupted me cooking dinner and getting cookies out of the oven 7 times in 45 minutes to tell me she loved me and that i was the best and to hug me but none of that's teh real point here i'm jsut explaing how she can annoy us even when she is really being a great kid. but anyways i let her paint today and of course she knocke dthe paint onto the floor, i expected it, she didn't have enough to make a mess and it was washable so no biggie but i look out and she's picking it up from the floor and i was like what happened and i get the i didn't do it just fell, and when i responded with if the paint os going to jsut jump off the table then i think it needs put away we had a fit but for the first time ever medicated or not i sent her to time out for the fit and she went 5 minutes later she told her dad exactly what happened and came and told me that she knocked the paint off and she was sorry and that was the end of it we ahd a great night and she did everything after that jsut like on a normal good night and things were wonderful, I'm so very proud of her, it's been so long since we could correct even the smallest of things and not have it ruin the rest of the night. days like today jsut reaffirm my faith in the fact that thigns really can be ok, and god i needed that.

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...
