This is fantastic news, Bill. I'll bet the latest diagnosis about the PD has not only lightened your step but will also help motivate your interest in photography - and everything else. Congratulations and good luck. Just keep on keepin' on.
Amen, to what Barrie has written about this thread - thanks to your courage in starting it, Bill. And I want to add my relief in hearing about the Rx connection and the news from your doctor.
I love this portrait of your grandson, as I've already written on Xspot and on Flickr. He's a truly beautiful little boy full of innocence and wonder - it must be wonderful to be able to watch him and play with him. Those blue eyes of his are incredible! I look forward to seeing more photos from you, too!
Also saw my Neurologist on Friday and got some better news. He thinks I have secondary Parkinsonism meaning my symptoms (weakness, clumsiness, balance issues etc) are caused by the medication I was on for about 3 years (Zyprexa) and not primary PD. Good news is my symptoms should not get any worse and may well get better. Here's hoping.
Nothing I could add that hasn't already been better put than I would be able to. I Have however noticed some interesting articles about the resent encouraging results with Ketamine for long term depression. Thought it may be of interest.
