I have been driving, with a bit of trepidation, had to send my licence away in October, still waiting, and it was an absolute pleasure. It was like riding a bike.
The return to walking was and is more of a chore, the lack of mobility,movement had caused my back to seize up, I'm undergoing Physio now to unlock my spine, build up my core and improve on my balance.
My thinking, to my mind has improved immensely.
One big change, which is common, is that I have become a lot more emotional about, well, anything. I laugh / smile when a thought enters my head at the most inappropriate times. I also cry/ well up at anything remotely sad. I'm not watching corrie again until Haley pegs it and roy is written out. As for battersly dogs home ... No don't get me started.
It's not manic. It's a lot more subtle.
I agree with the improvement of timing, co-ordination. I still need levadopa, I still don't work/sleep without it, it's an interesting sensation once you detach yourself from it.
