I didn't get a very good nights sleep last night so the amount I'm able to do today is limited. I dropped so many items while getting breakfast ready for John that my floor was a mess! But, that's life with DRD and I am grateful that moving slowly and dropping things are part of this new me.
Back in the day, a night of sleep like last night would have meant a day on the couch for me. Even though, my body is having a rough day, I was able to met my mom for coffee this morning and make homemade dinner rolls (that's easier than it sounds). And sure, I spent quite a bit of time on the couch.
With DRD, I have to rest every afternoon. It's just a part of my life and I'm happy with that. It sure beats being confined to a chair!
After living the first 33 years of my life thinking I had Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebal Palsey, I was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). I am on new medication and doing things that I never imagined possible. This has changed the lives of my husband and two daughters. I truly believe that I am living a miracle each and every day. Life can't get any better than this!
