2019-05-17 – Determined!

I’m still not very motivated, but I’m determined to produce my vlog this week.  A very good friend of mine suggested that he’d like to know more about how Parkinson’s Disease is affecting me at the moment, so that’s what I decide to do.  It’s a soft option, really, because it doesn’t require me to do any research – but then that’s exactly what I need right now. 

I write a script (which takes me much longer than I anticipated), film myself (which is achieved with less retakes than has become the norm just lately), edit it (without too many problems), upload it to my YouTube channel and publish it (just as my wife arrives home from work). 

My wife is pleased that I have managed to produce a vlog this week (she was surprised when I failed to do so last week), and she immediately watches my video (and offers her approval, which is very important to me).  

I have a deliciously tender sirloin steak for dinner, and then we chill out in front of the telly and watch Line Of Duty on Netflix.

  1. Ian thank you for taking the time to research the side effects of DBS it’s really useful for anyone like myself contemplating having DBS. Just for information I wondered if you can advise how many people is your research based on.
    I also noted that one person has suffered with blepharospasm since having DBS. As I suffer with blepharospasm already I need to discuss with my consultant whether this will be exacerbated by having DBS. Many thanks.

    1. Hi Christine. It was so long ago that I can’t remember exactly how many responses I had. In some cases there was only one reported instance of a particular side-effect, but further online research showed that it was not an isolated incident…
