    Morning jim and all coffee housers...my grandfather had parkinsons so I know how that one goes jim,dunno what meds are like for that now? In my grandfathers day meds were quiet primitive I hope they've moved on some by now and you can get some relief from your symptoms sooner rather than later. Take care

    Hi Mark... good to hear from you now. what is going on is that i dissociated again little bit ago.. only 2nd time since august 24th.. that is better than the 2 times a week i was averaging before.. these events are extemely dissorientating and confusing... cannot do stuff that has been automatic forever adn cannot find my butt with either hand LOL. during dissociations i get really emotional which causes the tremors and shaking in hands and fingers.. my mother had parkinsons and died from severe alzheimers so times like today are really troubling for me.

    i am waitinhg for my shrink or their med nurse to get back to me soon. call in was about me using an old script which has has the pills left, to take the benztropine which is a side effects pills... taking\it before did not work out and gave me some whole new side effects.. will see what doc says and if he is able to look back at my medical computer file to see exactly what happened before?? times like tonight make me realize that i might really need some help medwise with this.. i will be ok just may take me awhile to reach it.

    Mark , hope you are ok now. tc, Jim

    Yeah I can't imagine how it is to have your body moving involuntarily,I grew up with my grandad shaking all the time. Never thought anything of it,only in later years what a struggle it must be when you have a bad days with it. I hope your doctors works something out for you, best wishes to you and try and get some rest maybe

    Good afternoon to the fellow SF family,

    What's going on with you all? Good to hear from many of you. @Jimbo & Zoomies, I will be thinking of Katie's ex. I'm in the middle of just another day of vision therapy work where I have one goal in mind: eventually getting my eyes back to a state where I have control of my focusing ability like I did in middle school. That is a key, and improving that is good for my mental health, mood, future schooling, and my tendency to isolate myself. Eyestrain is a little bitch lol; I go out often now, but not as often the last few days because these plus and minus lens I work with (-1.75 and +0.75).. moving them in front of my eye and then back away again while reading individual words/letters in boxes (individually) is pretty straining. Eyestrain makes me sort of irritable and also unwilling to tolerate seeing things moving in real time (car rides, walking outside, etc.). Always good for me to do physical exercise inside and outside as well. I dream of a day where I can put this problematic past with my eyes behind me and move on. I try to be positive now, as the past is the past now, but it's sort of confusing! No more of "why couldn't I hold eye contact back then and feel more comfortable in public? Why was I such a weirdo? Why didn't I know that I was acting like that? Why didn't I realize what was going on with my eyes?" I must stop peering into the rear-view mirror; I make mistakes, and I also have new things to learn every day. Anyhow, I will be keeping in touch with you all and I hope your Saturday ends well.

    Pasted below is the song I chose to add to this thread for this lovely Saturday; peace :):
