Mind Tricks

I took a late afternoon nap this afternoon, when I woke up I thought it was 6am in the morning of the next day. I did the usual things before going to the kitchen to get myself some coffee, the clock said 6:20am. Along the way I went by Janie’s room, she was awake, she told me she had a bad dream.

With coffee in hand I sat down in my living room chair pulled up the newspaper on my iPAD just as Janie came out to the living room. She asked me what I was doing and I told her I was going to read the newspaper and drink coffee like I did every morning. She was a bit perplexed and asked me why I was drinking coffee at 6:30pm.

The medication I take for Parkinson’s sometimes alters my perception of dates and time, this is what had happened to me, I had mistaken my nap for my nightly sleep.
