Quanked

You’ve no doubt heard the saying, “Fake it till you make it.” I need to work harder to adopt the attitude. 😦 I REALLY appreciate it when people at church tell me; “Your face has more expression today…it isn’t so deadpan.” and “Your voice seems stronger today.” or “Your looking good.”

The truth is… I can’t tell if there is some improvement or if I am just figuring out how to regulate my supplementation that aids me to keep myself awake and energized.

When one of my wolf pack sisters told me today … “You look way better than you did,when I saw you during the week.” I should have simply said “Thank You.’ But, I crinkled my nose, in disbelief… because the time had lapsed for my supplementation…and my get up and go had got up and left.

The word of the day is QUANKED. Listed in “A Glossary of Words Used in the County of Wiltshire,” by Dartnell and Goddard (1893), it means “overpowered by fatigue.”

In May of 2018, I was diagnosed with Parkinson's. After researching, I believe the symptoms began to manifest themselves years prior to last year. The purpose for my blog is to share what I have learned (with an index) to save others time as they seek for answers about, symptoms, therapies [and alternative things to try], tools I use, Parkinsonisms, recipes, strategies, clinical studies, words of encouragement or just enjoy the photos or humor.

  1. I love when people tell me oh you’re sick? Or I thought your surgeries fixed you. You seem to be doing well and here at church or doing school etc.
    I just blurt out, well I hide it well because I don’t like comments like this lol. It takes everything out of me daily and if I can be an example I will but some days just stink . Keep hanging on. Don’t you love trials?

  2. I do love trials… after they have passed, when I can recognize how I or someone benefited. And I find it a little scary, when we are on a plateau. and everything seems to be going right… BECAUSE I know something else is coming, because it is through our trials that we grow.
