An older couple is lying in bed one morning having just awakened. He takes her hand and she responds "Don't touch me!"
"Why not?" he asks.
She answers back, "Because I'm dead"
The husband says" What are you talking about? We are lying in bed together talking to each other"
She says "No, I'm definitely dead"
He insists" You're not dead. What in the world makes you think you're dead?"
"Because I woke up this morning and nothing hurts!"
This just about sums up waking up in the morning for me. What should move doesn't and what does move hurts!!
I take my first Sinemet tabs at 7 am and then I stay in bed and doze until 8am. I never plan to do much before 10.30 am so that I have time to engage my body and mind and get ready for the day.
