My diagnosis with Parkinson's Disease in September 2009 at age 80 gave my life a new focus and challenge. Finding ways to meet this challenge helped make 2010 the best year of my life. I hope this blog will be a place where I can connect with others who also are dealing with aging and its afflictions and attractions so that we can share our "experience, strength and hope."

Let's Take a Break and Relax with These Video Clips
Truth be told I need a break to delve into the continuing mystery of how my carbidopa/levodopa continues to produce blood pressure readings ranging from 69/47 to 191/103 -- and that's just this morning. It's now 11am and I'm typing this while wearing my wrist blood pressure monitor to remind me to take frequent readings to see if I can make any sense out of this craziness.
I'll report back on this in a few days. Meanwhile . . .

While working on this post, I lost track of time and, as a result, I didn't take my 11am carbidopa/levodopa until 11:45. This resulted in a blood pressure reading of 211/104!
Taking pill and meditating brought the reading down to 130/66 within an hour.
