Hugs n elbow bumps

I acquired the New Eden which I mentioned in a previous post and for the first month I used 1 scoop twice a day. Then I learned that I was taking a maintenance serving, and I should increase the amount I consumed if I had a health challenge, IF I wanted to see noticeable improvement towards normal. So I doubled up 2 scoops twice or thrice a day since then.

Then several weeks ago, I had a fall. I was pulling a hose across the front of the home when the hose snagged. I was feeling so well, I guess I was going faster than I should, because when the hose snagged, suddenly stopping me, I fell backwards and struck my back and my spine high between my shoulder blades on a cement boy sitting on a pedestal, dislodging it from the soil. I expected to have some massive bruising. I credit the new product with the fact that I had very mild bruising and the soreness and puffiness was totally gone from my spine a short 4 or 5 days after I fell.

A fellow PD friend on a Parkinson’s chat page posted a photo of herself wearing her head gear ; stating that she has fallen so many times, breaking an arm once. She knew it is just a matter of time before she hits her head on something as she is falling, so she decided to be proactive. The cap she was modeling made me think of an early day leather flight helmet.

After my encounter with the stone figurine I decided to go on line and search for protective head wear, hoping to find something a bit more attractive. RibCap is the company I found that I felt had the most attractive helmets. I saw two styles that I liked. One looks like a knitted stocking cap…. Much to warm for our Florida heat. The other one Looks like a base ball cap.. so I thought it would be a wiser selection But when I went back to the site, thinking I might order one, I stumbled onto a third style set to be coming available on April 30th and I thought it looked more like something I would wear in the garden, so I ordered one. But I had to wait because, due to Covid, they had not been able to acquire some of the material they need to be able to produce the helmets

I’ve had a couple more falls since I placed the order… nothing more than my dignity broken… but I received notice that my hat has left Belgium and my hat/helmet should be here by 4th of June. Maybe I’ll share a photo with me modeling it.

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.
