    I find my day is ruled by what time I take my medications.  Do you feel the same?

    Yup, totally. If I didn’t have my phone alarm, I’d be lost in terms of remembering when to take my meds. I always carry them (and my phone) with me, and I always make sure I have plenty of water when I leave the house. I definitely feel that my life — and esp. my meals — center around my meds.

      I certainly feel that my day revolves about med times. I not only have to set alarms on my phone but I also have to time meals just right. Regular life has to fit that schedule.

        I totally agree, Karla. Sigh.

    I find myself worrying about the end of my day (late dinner with husband’s business associates) at the beginning of my day.  All that worry creates anxiety that doesn’t help my symptoms and sometimes causes additional problematic situations in the beginning of my day.  Sometimes I feel like yelling, “I WANT OFF OF THIS MARY-GO-ROUND!”

      I hear ya, Tahmy. I find a similar phrase rattling around in my head a lot of the times. 🙂 Stress is the worst when it comes to exacerbating PD symptoms, but it’s really hard to avoid when life revolves around medication and meals (and everything else).
