I had a great night’s sleep, but still I’m feeling extremely tired after my busy day yesterday. My muscles are aching, my tremor is breaking through (mainly on my left side), my voice is a bit on the weak side, and I don’t feel like doing very much today.
I have a vlog to do, though, so I decide upon a topic (current advances, exciting research and the search for a cure for Parkinson’s Disease) and set about researching it. It becomes apparent (fairly quickly) that the subject is too big to cover in a 5 or 6 minute vlog, so I decide to select one area of research (stem cell treatment) and cover that this week. 3 hours later, I’ve done some research and come up with a script that I feel fairly happy with. Filming myself is a bit of an effort because my voice is breaking up, but I eventually (after several re-takes) manage to shoot something that I’m reasonably happy with. I load the footage onto my MacBook and get it edited before I take the dog for her afternoon walk.
By the time my wife gets home from work, I’ve uploaded it to my YouTube channel, published it and posted links to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as well as to as number of Parkinson’s Disease forums that I am subscribed to.
Time for dinner, a beer, some cannabis and an early night!
