Unknown to me, I left the house this morning without taking my medication. When I got to they gym, my friend asked me why my walk was so different. She thought it seemed a little off and wanted to make sure everything was okay. I explained that I haven't been getting enough sleep and that things have been a little stressful. I didn't realize until our 30 minute walk on the treadmill was over that I had forgotten to take my life line. We cut our workout short and I went home and took the little pill that allows me to live my life to its fullest potential.
My walk did get better as the day went on, but I still wasn't quite right. At girl scouts I spilled punch all over the kitchen floor and later this evening I spilled a glass of red wine on my living room carpet. Without taking my medication correctly and a lack of sleep, my hands have difficulty holding items. I was just glad that I could run and get a towel to clean up both messes I had made!
Tomorrow is a new day and I look forward to spending it with my mom shopping. Let's just hope I don't crash John's stroller into a big display. Now that would be a mess!!
Have a good evening and thanks so much for your support!
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!
