Good Morning PRM1954,
How are you doing, are you O.K.? We are all here for you if you need us.
Unlike some of the other groups that have hundreds, even thousands of members, we only have 32.
Since this group came about because most of us have a disorder that required the use of drugs that caused our TD, you might find more ongoing daily conversation in one of those groups.
For me, my TD and Dystonia can sometimes make typing difficult. But not so difficult that I cant try to help a fellow member if needed...
PS. Good Morning to you too Pledge.
Good Morning Again PRM
I'm sorry to hear that you are also having difficulty typing. As far as using words that you don't mean, it's weird... but me too. I have been looking at getting 'Dragon' so I can just speak instead of type. Of course that does nothing for using the "wrong words" but much easier on the hands.
I'm not familiar with Huntingtons? Have they mentioned Parkensins? I was tested for that a year ago due to the word swapping, it was a Negative. My understanding is that there is a specific type of Demensia that is a symptom of Parkensins. For all I, and probably they, know mild Demensia is part of TD too.
Truthfully, after reading a book titled "Toxic Psychiatry", I have started to believe that they know very little, if anything, about the effects of these drugs on the brain or TD long term. I say it's a "Crapshoot".
Hi PRM. I have been dealing with typing and side effects from one of the meds I take which causes a tremor. I have learned there are things you can do. For example, I now have an iPad which I use two fingers to type with. Keeping my fingers coordinated simply doesn't work now.. This does.
I would also suggest you try one of the voice command programs, if your voice is good, to speak the info.
Chat happens all over the place on this site. You probably have information to share with many as you learn about your meds and condition. I got on this site because I was overwhelmed and panicking, something that was not the normal me. Lots of people responded. (My disease is very rare) Then I started adding knowledge I had and found some good people to talk with. There is also a private question section where you can talk directly to someone and they to you which stays private. I went from reading to being active whenever I have the energy. People even check in with me if I have been absent for a while. Many caring people here. Just dive in and see what happens. Your new friend, Karen
