Is it just me, Time seems to be evaporating , its almost possible to reach the parallel universes , to touch our future and our past and I find it alarming, yesterday my oldest daughter was sitting on my Knee age 5, I blinked and she was 44,today I was dozing and began to chat to my Father, I was 16 and we were talking about Muhamed Ali, Dad admired him I remember every word of that conversation age 16, Im 66 now, I know the world spins at about 7 mls per second , whilst hurtling round the sun at 17 mps or thereabouts constant, and variable averages , this produces the seasons of winter spring summer Autumn, I understand all this but I cant be one year since last christmas ??? surely not, I blinked and so much time vapourised I have lost so many people dear to me where have they gone I blinked thats all, does anyone else feel this way.

Sorry about that, my wife will not allow me unsupervised unto this toplap so Ive had to wait until her return to complete this posting, so here I go ,I have mentioned the two prolapsed discs in my lower back, well today the entity that is the PAIN CONTROLLER must have been off sick or bored for some reason and decided to a FUN WITH FED day, he began at 830am and is now up to 885000 on the FED PAIN SCALE,or FPS so some way to go to match my record 1463334 FPS s, this reading was taken by a mobile device which I used to carry in my top pocket of my overalls, it not only measures physical pain but mental and emotional stress, and no you cant have one as I made it with a few spare pc bits. Now as I was saying the FUNBOYFED,, day the pain controller must be in a party mood for I have been in pure absolutely distilled pure bred filtered chrystal clear agony all day , I was going to do a few things today but have done nowt due to parky and his new mate MR A GONY also beloved rang Wansbeck to see if I am going for the op any day soon,, and was told the 9th of February,I think the plan is with abit of luck the shocking pain will cause my heart to fail thereby saving the N H S QUITE a lot of dosh ,the Ddopa costs a pretty penny,, but Im not giving up (though I really do want to) I am very worn broken wrecked smashed annihilated destroyed and finaly discombooomalated thats a old geordie word,, it means kna////d shot to pieces my whole body wracked, yes folks WRACKED so what ?? I may tell you though on the very edge of sanity the old favourite of that Neeeewton guy, for every action there must be a equal and opposite reaction or was old Al Einstein I know nor care not ,as I just tried to move and old GONY turned up the dial to 912673,, and the result of this output of pain is a equal and opposite effect of me sitting in my comfy chair watching YOU TUBE on the new widescreen TV, GOOD EH I know who will break first, and it wont be me..
Night all FED
Here I am rplying to myself again, you thought this was going to be good news eh well its not, my great friend and flying instructor is very seiously ill in hospital with total kidney failure, and yet another good buddy is now in a hospice facing oblivion with prostate cancel , and I have developed a very painfull toothache , which raises a interesting query , I have great difficulty cleaning my teeth now thus the tooothache , hs anyone had the same trouble and been given a discount on extractions, as this is going to be troublesome I can see, please reply I need feed back.
I have a problem with cleaning my teeth too. I use an electric toothbrush and get them cleaned by the dentist every 3 months.
This all helps.
I'm sorry to hear about your friends. It must feel terrible, I really am sorry to hear that you're feeling so low. I hope things improve soon.
You can find out about dental costs by calling the NHS Help with Health Costs helpline on 0300 330 1343.
Hello, fed, old friend --
I have not visited the general forum for a while, checking in on my previous topics only. So I'm sorry to be late in responding here -- also sorry you are having such a period of pain and loss, loss of both time and friends. Two things I have in common with you. First, I long ago switched to an electric toothbrush. Even as mild as my PD symptoms are, I cannot make that repetitive motion of brushing teeth with any significant force behind it. The teeth end up exactly as they started; it's non-brushing if I use a manual toothbrush.
Second, there's the phenomenon of time's passing ever faster and taking our friends from us along the way. I could swear I ended my career just a few years ago, but if this is really 2016, it's been 20 years! My husband's passing was surely just months ago. Yes, 55 months! Everything accelerates as we age (except the workings of the mind, alas), and I have read interesting theories on why this is our impression. But I won't go into those now. For me, the sense that time is going by faster than ever plus the live-day-by-day effect of PD have created in me an eagerness to use my time well. I have eliminated some activities and gradually removed some people from my life. I have spent more time on reading and writing, travel and music, and all things I value most highly. My family and truest friends are important parts of my life.
Since I am in this period of hastening time, I am aware that the years remaining to me are not great in number. And I know they will pass even faster than previous years of the same number. Yet somehow that is not a worry to me. So long as I am using my days as well as circumstances allow, I am satisfied.
Obviously, a very significant difference between us is the pain that you suffer. My daily pains, though they are present, are nothing to mention in comparison to yours. When I know your pain, I shall probably also have a changed attitude about time and its use. I can only offer sympathy and good wishes, fed.
Hello Lady J,
Thankyou for replying I also have a most uncomfortable sensation of my life from my earliest recollections to 1hr ago racing back and forth through my mind its very hard to deal with as it utilises every detail logged in my memory banks good and bad, ( mostlly bad), and leaves me very low I am pleased you have answered tis post as I have had trouble with this pc, I was using my wifes but after only three days it was returned to me yesterday, and all the work I asked them to fix has been done,, now thats a rare event J wont you agree so could you message your e mail address as unforunately the repairs deleted all my contacts, thank you.
Yes I am almost continously in some form of pain or trouble, my two friends about to leave us are two of five real friends one of whom was my very own flying instructor and a excellent one at that, so sadness piled on sadness my friend, I have long weeping spells which can hit any time any where my dear Mother passing away in July being the spark that fires off these awesome spells, of grief, there will be a empty chair for christmas dinner this year Mam used to come to us every year so its going to be a very sad 25th this year, it will emphasise her loss.
And now toothache oh joy of joys the only place on the planet that genuinely terrifies me THE DENTIST it will have to come out it hurts so bad, so bite the bullet time again for old fed , when oh when wil I get a break J , all my very best wishes dear friend.
FED looking forward to your visit to Hexham, you will enjoy
Thankyou Kat and Donkey for replying, and all the best for christmas and New Year
