"The term "movement disorders" refers to a group of nervous system (neurological) conditions that cause you to have abnormal voluntary or involuntary movements, or slow, reduced movements."
Having a movement disorder is something I have grown used to. Gone are the days of gliding through my day like a feather. Now walking from place to place has to be strategically planned and definitely not spontaneous. Everyday my disorder teaches me lessons: some good, some sad, some funny, some not so funny. I will forever be the student, and it's up to me to learn the lessons.
1. Never wait to go to the bathroom! That's all I have to say about that.
2. Never wear high heels..........as if!
3, Dancing..................keep a sense of humor about yourself, and lots of wine!
4, Never walk past a group of dogs, no matter how cute. Remember, I can't run if I need too. (Ohhhh, but doggies are so sweet!)
5. Never.........ever........hurry! When I'm hurried I become nervous, and nervousness is no friend of mine. Trying to hurry just makes everything so much worse.
What lessons have you learned from your disease?
