I was supposed to be resting but there was so much I wanted to do. I took the dog for walks, ran a few errands, and basically acted like I was normal. Evidently my determination to do my tasks ws not what my body was ready for. It had only been 4 days since my gall bladder was removed. I was very tired when I went to bed. That’s when my Parkinson’s kicked into high gear. I would like to say I was electric, dancing and laughing with left over energy. In reality it was as if my circuits were raging. My right leg and right arm jumped constantly and I could not sleep. Then my left side went through the same actions. My left leg would twitch uncontrollably and then my arm. For over two hours the circuits hummed and my arms and legs twitched. Then the spasms were over and I was back to the minor twitches that I was comfortable with. I felt like I had run a marathon. I was exhausted.
Today I am going to take it easy. But then, there is so much to see and do. I hope I have some control over my need to push forward. I am afraid if I slack, my life has lost its meaning. I don’t think I know how to take it easy. Life is too short.
