The Dopamine Chronicles

An almost daily cartoon about Parkinson's

Drink your milk!

Turns out milk consumption in the 60’s is related to Parkinson’s. Seems the pesticide that they used grow the hay was passed on through the cows. Bummer, I put away a lot of Frosted Flakes, Fruit Loops and Rice Krispies (never did trust elves named “Snap, Crackle and Pop”) all with a lotta’ milk!

Imperial Brain Walkers

If you got PD, just make sure you take extra meds with you when you set out to wipe out those stubborn resistance fighters…

!@#$ buttons!

Okay, I am ALMOST at this point. Trying to figure out why they made the button holes so !@#$ small on my new shirts! Then I read about a fashion designer’s husband (who was a coach) that has young onset PD and was having such a hard time one day buttoning his shirt that he had to have one of his players button his shirt for him.

Well Maura swung into it and invented a really classy way for us PD folks that fight buttons to look GQ. Check it out here!

Brain Toast!

Some of thinking now is that mitochondria are burning themselves out in the Parkinson’s patient’s neurons. Like an aluminum small block in a Chevy Vega, they just can’t handle the RPM!

I was possessed by the spirit of Jar Jar Binks!

Or I think I might have gotten too much medicine…

Roach Detente…

With roaches the size of Volkswagens in Louisiana you’d think I wouldn’t be shy about spreading around the spray… BUT I got to cool it a bit and focus on preserving neurons!

Me at church (till the medication kicks in I may want to consider walking with a travel mug!)
