2018-06-05 – Another appointment.

Another day, another appointment.  This time it’s with the physiotherapist at North Walsham cottage hospital so, after drinking my tea and nutriblast and walking the dog, I drive to North Walsham.   I have a scant 15 minutes with the physiotherapist, but we make another appointment for next week, when I’ll be allowed to use the motorised exercise bike that they have there – it’s not really suitable for “forced exercise” use because it isn’t capable of achieving the necessary 80 to 90 revolutions per minute, but it’s better than doing nothing at all.  My legs are getting extremely weak, and I’m struggling to get to a standing position when I’ve been on my knees (weeding) down at the allotment, so I need to do something to strengthen the muscles.

I’m really struggling with fatigue today, and it’s all I can do to keep my eyes open this afternoon – I haven’t been doing anything very strenuous, so I can only put it down to my Parkinson’s.  I spend a little while practising guitar, and then take the dog for her afternoon walk – both activities prevent me from falling asleep!

Another early night is on the cards, I think.
