It’s perfectly normal for me to be messing with my cell phone…
But our on the Meseta in Northern Spain? Was I trying to act ok? Did I do a good job of convincing you all?
I got in the car and drove to the high school. I parked my car in the first available spot, quite a distance from the door, grabbed my stadium seat and made my way into the gym and up the bleachers to sit and watch the game. I was trying to act ok. I had trouble maneuvering the bleachers, my hands and legs did fantastic tremors the whole first half and I flagged down a friend to help me out of the building when the game was over as I was quite stiff and didn’t know how I would do in the crowd. Its perfectly normal for me to go to a game. Did I act ok? Did I do a good job of convincing you all?
Parkinson’s Disease has such a variety of symptoms, some very observable and many that you might not even notice. Today I “acted” my way through. Sometimes by doing “normal” activities I try to fool my way past Parkinson’s. Sometimes it works. Actually, it works all the time. The moral is revealed by a saying from the 70’s. “Keep on trucking”. Do what you can and keep doing it. By “acting” I am not faking it, I am doing it. Nobody or nothing can interrupt my performance.
