It is no bother.
I know for a fact that it’s better to talk to your gang of very good friends than bottling up your feelings
Work in progress or not
You are right to ignore the morons ( their brains are just painted on !!)
You have a rare talent for communication so please keep it up…
Over and out.
Thanks Mal why don’t you join our little gang it’s not all serious stuff we do have the odd laugh when appropriate of course TOMMY
Interesting that because I have never been a music fan but have listened to it alot more since my diagnosis. Bloody strange condition
HI all ,
i second TOMMYS suggestion MALC
EVERYONE is more than welcome in the gang
the majority of us will never meet face to face
but knowing we arent alone
thats what makes us who we are
giving strength to those that need it
and comfort in our care
IF HEINEKEN MADE GANGS
still wouldnt be better than ours
I’m up for that and theres no reason to not meet face to face. We could all go on a massive pub crawl reeking havoc everywhere we go
Name the place and time
I’ll be holding the door open for you
havent reeked havoc in many years
god what fun
Yeh how good would that be… the shaky lads on the lash
I’ve had my PD for many a year
and I’ve spent all my money
On whisky and beer
And it’s no nay never no nay never no more (well I think you get the jist of that) but remember there’s girls in this gang mostly bad ones though so it will have to be a shake and bake night can you imagine the mess on the floor eh?
lets take the fun police , show them what a good time
but then again with your last comment bruv , i dont think they will be that far behind you
I must admit my tolerance for a few beers is pretty dire with this god dam condition but still enjoy a few. Being an ex soldier i have been on a few military reunions but i can imagine a PD get together has the potential to top them all. Being an ex squaddie makes you part of a brotherhood but having PD takes things to a whole new level when it comes to “belonging”
i never served but my repects go to you and those who have and still are
brotherhood and trust are hard to earn but once earned is like bond like no other
i share your dire tolerance to beers , drink one pint , piss 4
sorry so crude
im now a JD Jack daniels fan although in moderation , only problem with that is i never learnt moderation
belonging is important , makes us feel like we are more than this condition would like us to be
id stand side by side with you if you fall and dont take me with you , my hand will be the first thing you see , if you take me down with you , my laughter will be the first sound you hear
and we will both stand together
we are all diffrent but also one of the same
friendship , brotherhood sisterhood
NO ONE LEFT BEHIND
GOD BLESS THE MEN AND WOMEN OF OUR GREAT COUNTRY
THOSE WHO PUT THEMSELFS IN HARMS WAY TO PROTECT US
NEVER FORGET THOSE WHO HAVE FOUGHT AND PAID THE ULTIMATE PRICE
FOR THE SAFTEY WE HAVE TODAY AND TOMORROWS
IF WE FOGET JUST ONE THEM , THEN THE SHAME IS ON US
Morning All, thanks Tommy for the kind invite and you Kieth for the Second
Its also good to see you too Ian, my fishing friend.
1 I would struggle to keep up with you three illustrious wordsmiths
2 The Ladies frighten me ( i get enough telling off at home) have you asked for their permission
3 I have no problem when you speak English, Like what the Queen does! but your Native tongue
takes me a bit more time. Ah can no get me heed rund it. Is there a dickshionery available.
If we can overcome these minor matters.
Please count me IN
Hi see you found our hideout what music are you listening to aside from Lfc it’s one passion that, s kept me sane well I think I, m sane mam says I, m not especially when watching reds
Hi Pete, mainly 80’s stuff and alot of The Jam. Although for some reason enjoying a bit of Paloma Faith.
Can I ask a serious question
What’s your first name ???
I,LL go first I’m Keith
and I agree you can’t beat the 70s and 80s
But then I’m an Old fart
Hi Keith, its Ian
Great to meet you Ian
Hope you and your family are well
With our condition we sometimes ask the stupudish questions ( well I do )
We can only hope for better days as nothings is ever sure
I’ve been on the forum since March this year and to me it has been a lifeline.
I still have the odd bad day . On those days all I want is to be left alone but not on my own ( if that makes any sense )
Some of us keep our condition close . But not me
I’m not afraid to talk about what I feel
If you ever feel you want to let off some steam or frustrations you will find not only me but many others even in the middle of the night
The insomnia thread is the place to go
That’s enough rambling
So take care my new friend all my wishes to your family
Great to meet you too Keith.
I have been on the forum since September last year when I was diagnosed. I hate PD, made even worse with my meds having little effect 10 months on. I am coping with it ok ish but I do have my moments and the occasional meltdown. Like you not afraid to tell it like it is. Just turned 51 and didnt plan for this shyte but i know i need to play the cards I have been dealt.
Stay strong brother and thanks for reaching out.
Onwards and upwards
Just as I logged off this morning, I was brought back down to earth by a post from a Lady (cant remember her name ) but she was crying, saying she had been bullied at work.
Was i dreaming ? because the post seems to have disappeared .
Does anyone know whats happened to it ?
I’m 52 and untill March last year I thought I was in good health
Had a heart attack out the blue in March
November I had a minor stroke TIA
THEN in February Parkinsons
How’s that for a triple whammy
I am not bitter about it . life’s too short
Has it changed me ? I couldn’t really say
I have had friends that suddenly avoided me ( their loss )
But the majority have stood by me
I’m still the same me but just a little slower
As time has gone on my boys have noticed I have become more sarcastic even more than I was before diagnoses
The strength I get from my family is what grounds me
They have no problems in taking the piss but it’s their way of handling it
I dread to think what they would do if someone ment it maliciously
You mentioned you play the cards you’ve been dealt . When my shakes take over my cards turn into 52 card pick up lol
I still keep active but I know I have some limitations
If you ever want to ask me anything privately . You are more than welcome.
With me . What you see is what you get and I make no apologises lol
I will stand with you every step of the way
It’s not that you need me . We all need each other
Brothers in arms
