Let's get positive!

Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace
English Quotes: http://goo.gl/udl654

So, last week I devoted any postings to negativity, and I kindof forgot to let go yesterday as I continued my venting about the unfairness of MS. I titles my post WHY? and I wish I had given this more thought.

Who am I to question my life and all that it holds? I love my life. If I am supposed to have an incurable disease, I guess that's just how it is. No, I don't necessarily like it; but, it is what it is.

I also do not like that I have married three times and that I will be sixty years old when my only  child graduates from high school.

But, guess what? There is a reason for all this. I am now married to the most wonderful person I could ever ask for. He supports me and looks after my needs. He is a wonderful father and protective husband. I wish I was a younger mother, but I really believe that God saved this experience for me whedn I needed it most. The birth of my son pretty much saved my life.
With a birth and a diagnosis six months apart, I was finally galvanized into action and I made a HUGE decision to take on motherhood and MS all on my own.

One of the best decisions I have ever made! At the age of 41, I finally grew up.


So, today I am positive. I am also lookingfor funding for a small community library. I've go tthe building and I've got the public. I just need to find financial support to help this venture come true. The Marion County Readignni Council iagreed to sponsor a  Little Free Library in Onongah, for which I will be the Steward and I am beyond thrilled abou that; but I've still got my head wrapped around the idea of a small public library or reading room. My dream retirment job...

Alien feet?

Okay, so after my initial reunion with social media, I naively imagined today to be more productive. But, no...

For someone who doesn't spend much time perusing sites like Pinterest, my interest has suddenly piqued to the point that addiction be a possibility.

Hoping to find someone of like mind, I instead downloaded a slipper pattern I might knit for Christmas presents (oops, there goes the surprise). It looks fairly simple. Let me know if you give it a try.

And, then, I found this really neat yoga flow outlined for me.
Since yoga seems to be the go-to exercise for us Warriors, I decided to share. That way we do not have to invent our own personalized routine. You're welcome.




Then, I discovered an entire page of memes that put MS in perspective to the causal reader-reluctant  on-looker. And because  this figure is essentially in the child pose... well, you get the picture.

Of course, any information on foot drop always attracts my at…

MS and children

FDA Approves First Treatment for Pediatric MS On May 11, 2018, Novartis announced that Gilenya® (fingolimod) was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of children and adolescents, ages 10 through 17, with relapsing multiple sclerosis (MS). This is the first disease-modifying therapy (DMT) to be approved for this form of the disease in this age group. Known as “pediatric MS,” nearly all of those diagnosed have the relapsing form of the disease. Children also experience approximately two-to-three times as many relapses as an individual with adult-onset MS. A clinical trial comparing Gilenya to Avonex® (interferon beta-1a) in children and adolescents found that those treated with Gilenya saw an 82-percent reduction in their annualized relapse rate over a period of up to two years. Please see MSAA's online news article, "FDA Approves Gilenya® for Pediatric MS,"for more information. If links are disabled in this email, please copy a…

Well, the sun is shining at last and it appears that spring is sincerely here and hinting at summer weather.    That means I need a summer project; hopefully one that I can complete. With two young adult books   in various levels of completion, you will surely tells me how ridiculous I am to start yet another writing project. but, inspiration has no rules, right?
           The entire month of March MS Awareness Month led to so many
awesomeavenues of expressions, fueling my need to share and learn with 
fellow MS Warriors. So, let's hare. Let's learn. In Letters to the MonSter, 
my goal is to allow fellow Warriors to vent, scream, rant, and exorcise the  MonSter out of our lives. Let's unite in this project to erase multiple sclerosis from our lives. As Leslie Hillburn stated in the preface to my last tome to this disease, "...the ONLY place you will get any support and understanding in dealing with me (MS) is with Other People wi…
