Been quietly tapering off of my Parkinson's meds. Started at 14 tabs of Sinemet a day and two 8 mg Neupro patches. Down to 8 tabs a day and only 1 patch. Just short of halfway there. I’m hanging in there. Tough some days but today is a good day. I’m definitely thinking clearer. Brought my racing bike inside the house and put it in a stationary training stand. I’m putting miles on it. I should be off my meds by Christmas. Keep praying. It’s been 8 years since I started these drugs. Happy to say goodbye!
Happy holidays everyone!
Well lookie here!!!! My new medicine has kicked in. I’m speechless. My feet are not turning inward any longer and my legs feel strong. First time in 3 months I’m headed out to ride. Starting off slowly. Hey, Coach Bleich, let’s roll, brother. ❤️💚💛💜💙
I have been struggling with my balance lately. If you are experiencing the same, grab a bike and go for a ride. It stops tremor (temporarily), improves your balances and raises your endorphins. Plus you're not cooped up inside feeling sorry for yourself. Get out and enjoy the fresh air!
