Parkinson's # 63 (August 15, 2008)

During the week after my father's death, I barely had any symptoms of PD. Since Thursday it's come on strong.

One of the effects is a stiffness in the ankle and the right foot turning inward. This makes it uncomfortable sitting at my desk and scary driving. Today I had to drive. No incidents, but I was very uncomfortable.

On Monday, when I walked, I was spry. The last couple of days I had to make a conscious effort not to shuffle. I'm sure that part of this is the result of sadness.

I find it hard to accept that he's gone. I hear his voice. I see little, old Jewish men in Manhattan and I think its him. It's part of life, but it sucks.
