I am still learning not to over estimate my stamina and strength. I can no longer jump in the car and drive for 6 hours or even run errands for more than half a day.
I have a delusion that is sort of frightening - I am walking or riding through a thoroughly familiar territory and suddenly don't know where I am and recognize no landmarks. Mostly this happens at night. I stop and close my eyes and things so far have shifted back to normal.
I often sense movement at the edge of my peripheral vision, but it is usually when there are shadows or strips of light and dark. My peripheral vision somehow accentuates them.
When I first had one we were all watching tv in the living room and I was swatting a fly and people tried to look without any of the others catching them looking as each one would turn around they started catching each then they finally busted out laughing cause I clapped my hand together like I squashed him. Of course I could have been home alone and just thought they were there either way I got that fly. :)
When I take my dog for a walk at night and the air is perfectly still - - I see all the trees swaying in the wind. And all of the posts with mailboxes at the end of the driveway are small children waving at me from a distance. When I'm sitting at my desk, I wear glasses and in my peripheral vision to the left side of my head I see people standing next to me as I am seated. Its not the same person. It could be a teenage boy or an adult woman. I think I can see ghosts :). Its occurred for so long now that its not frightening at all. I just accept that I see things that are not there and acknowledge they aren't. I have visual disturbances now that I'm over 10 carb/levo pills plus TWO 8mg Neupro patches and eight 100 mg Amantadine I take everyday at 11 years PD and counting.
