I have found that having a sense of humor about some of the strange things my body does because of PD actually helps me better accept the symptom. One of my funny moments occurred during a PT session.
I was laying on the floor trying to roll over to the right at the PT’s request and I couldn’t figure out which way was to the right. Then the PT, who is next to me on my right side, starts whistling, and in a sing-song voice is saying; “I’m over here”. I thought this was the funniest thing. It seemed so absurd that the simplest task he was asking me to do, something most of us could always do with ease and without any thought process and it was confounding me. I was laughing so hard at myself, I had tears in my eyes and I started to drool which made me laugh even harder as drooling is another symptom of PD.
