102. Steady hands

The way I respond, or don't respond, to Parkinson's medication can only be described as sporadic. Everyone else I know with the condition takes the medication and it make the symptoms a bit better if only for a short period of time.


With me it's never really been like that. I've been on the new medication for a few days and it made me feel superpowered for a few days but that's now wearing off. The lasting, and surprising, effect seems to be on my tremor. If I take the medication in the morning and at lunch it seems to make me get gradually steadier throughout the day which isn't what this particular medicine is supposed to do. It's supposed to help my very much not going anywhere foot cramps. But I'm not going to argue.
