As my hands have stiffened, I have needed to adapt: Because my legs are white & streaked with bulging varicose veins, I’d always wore Suntan support hose or long pants. When I could no longer get the nylons on, I wore long skirts with elastic waists, like my slacks. But I was having a difficult time parting with my favorite knee length skirts. I finally realized; if I purchased the support nylons in queen size… I can get them over my heels and on!
My biggest battle with my body and mind as I progress with Parkinson’s disease is prioritizing:
- Contending with what I should do and what I don’t want to do. (like exercise)
- Weeding out projects that I really want to do but know I shouldn’t do. (like weeding the flower beds)
- Identifying what I can let go of. (I know!! I am a pack rat!) (&
what ifI experience a miracle! 🙂
I know I posted the following picture before… But I love its message & it seemed to belong in this post about being a Queen.
