Just as RuthP said.
From my experience with my father, the first symptom was "pill rolling" with index finger and thumb.
As the disease progresses, each sufferer responds in a different manner. Some mild mannered people can become violent others can become very depressed.
Several years in, a significant loss of weight may occur from the "added" exercise.
Yes, the function of all medications diminish over time. The doctor is in a constant dose battle.
Later in the disease, falling is a danger. My father refused the wheel chair and fell several times which resulted in a deep bone infection and threatened amputation.
His last 3 years proved beyond the ability of his family to care for him. Luckily, a nursing home specializing Parkinsons was found. (People, get long term health insurance if you can afford it).
The last stage results in the abdomen muscles tightening up so the body bends over. This results in heart attack and or asphyxiation.

Agreed. What is that saying? To react with violence is to prove that he can defeat you with a single gesture.


I think in some cases, the bullied are in such a condition after being brutally beaten, that they are not in a position to retaliate anyway.


That may be the case for some.
Others do not use retaliation for balance is always in the air. It sings a sweet song.

It is an American term "To pack heat". It means "Carry a gun". If you were to say "I'm packin" (sp) it means you have a gun on your person. (not a good idea unless you are licensed to carry a concealed weapon)


He could possibly be alluding to his martial arts experience as well. I agree there is a time when it is opon oneself to act with force. It's not as easy to justify when you feel like you are the only target, but it's a whole lot easier to do, esp. if conflicts like that are your secret birthday wish.

Going back to the origin of bullies...A friend of mine and I used to fight these kids every day after grade school classes. It started for no reason at all. Two against up to nine or so guys everyday. When did they fight the hardest? Close to thier home. Said it all right there.

What kind of look did you give?


You wish.

It's easier to hear the two syllables if you hear a New Yorker say it: sqwoy-alled.
