Sorry for being off-blog for so long: I was sick. (Word of advice: if you have Parkinson's, try not to get Herpes Zoster--AKA shingles--on top of it; not that it'll do much good if you've had chicken pox as a child). The two can potentiate and intensify each other's symptoms; the upshot being that I was pretty much useless for over a month, what with the being almost paralyzed and the treatments (The worst being a "5-4-3-2-1" steroid run that leaves you as wrung-out as a washcloth.)
I'm pretty much recovered by now, save for what seems to be permanent nerve damage in my upper back. Of course, I'm also severely behind in my work. Oy.
