2017-07-11 – A huge improvement!

I had a really good nights sleep last night – 7 hours uninterrupted!  I’m still feeling very fatigued, but its a huge improvement on yesterday.

I take the dog out for her morning walk before the weather changes – it’s fairly bright this morning, but rain is forecast for later on in the day.  By the time I have replied to a couple of emails and several social media messages, the sky is grey and threatening. Half an hour later it’s pouring with rain, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop any time soon.

I need to provide some information to the solicitor who is dealing with the affairs of my recently deceased next door neighbour, so I make a start on going through the piles of personal papers in his house.  I haven’t come across the required birth certificate yet, so will do some more searching tomorrow.

My tremor is much more under control today, only breaking through in my left leg occasionally. My voice is about the same as yesterday (weak), but I generally don’t need to use it too much during the day.  Muscular weakness and stiffness is causing some discomfort in my arms, but I self-medicate with little cannabis mid-afternoon, and that helps.  Dystonia and dyskinesia are both tolerable.  I’m still very lacking in energy, but I’m getting used to the fact that some minor exertion takes me 2 or 3 days to recover from.  My mood and motivation seem okay, it’s a lack of energy that is stopping me doing stuff.

The dog wants her afternoon walk, until she sees the rain.  Suddenly she’s a good deal less keen.  Funny, that…  She takes a quick couple of minutes in the garden to do her business, and rushes back into the house.  Can’t say I blame her.

I have a tidy up in the kitchen just before my wife arrives home from work. We eat dinner and then head over to Spixworth to visit my wife’s youngest brother and family.  It’s my wife’s niece’s 15th birthday today, and we want to give her her present.
