Second Chances #MyMS

Flash, Thunderstorm, Flash Of Lightning, Black

It rarely happens, but I have heard that lightening oddly strikes twice everyone and then. We beat ourselves up over missed opportunities and poor decisions, and to no avail. It is pointless to  clutter up our already messed up lives with regrets, yet it is a common human affliction. I have spent the last week pounding on myself.

Unfortunately the bruising is more than literal with the reality of two nasty falls in two days. Not only should I have had a stitch, or two, or even three, on my forehead, my upper arm resembles that of  a domestic violence victim. All because I lost my balance and crashed into a stone wall on my back porch. As head wounds are like to do, I bled on and off for a day and cannot find a comfortable sleeping position that avoids all contact of said wounds. But it is getting better. 

That was Saturday's fall. On Sunday I found myself prone on the kitchen floor after turning too quickly, I guess, and landing on my knee. Ouch. I say "I guess" here because I really have no recollection of how this happened. Does that ever happen to you? One minute yo are upright and the next your perspective of the world is from a new and weird angle? It is almost as if you black out for a strange second.


The only link to these two situations that I can fathom is that my mind has been absolutely cluttered with a regretful lack of judgement in decision making about qa matter that could have changed my current life. I just go too much inside my own head. 

A second chance is what I needed even though I realize that reality does not work that way. 

Or maybe it does?  

Just this once?

Fingers crossed.

Have a good weekend,

If you are already prone to this malady, the following information may be dangerous in encouraging this behavior. This writer is not responsible for damages done. As a result of today's blog topic,  my personal couch potato activities are responsible for the lack of yesterday's post. In an attempt to justify my actions, I blame Netflix (in the name of research).  The best way to prove a fact is to test it, right? Yesterday I definitely put Netflix to the test by watching hours of Safe, a one-season Harlon Coben creation that whetted my love for crime/mystery/action-based entertainment. Harlon Coben is an American author whose work I have enjoyed immensely over the years,  discovering Safe as Coben's break out into film became that much sweeter when The Five caught my attention another series of his own. I will finish The Five today (unless some saves me) so that I can

CBD and MS

We warriors are a resilient breed. After speaking extensively with a CBD enthusiast over the weekend, i finally bit the bullet and bought the "good" stuff...all in the name of research. Things have changed a bit since my first CBD experience, including the flavor. This particular product comes in natural (an earthy flavor), peppermint (self-explanatory), and cinnamon (Yum!).Because particular brand (Hempworx) has ONLY two ingredients : CDB and hemp seed oil.   I decided to document my experience here, so if any of you are interested we can discuss our personal journeys. As you all know, MS is an expensive condition that requires careful thought to additional treatments and related expenditures, most of which are not recognized by insurance companies and/or medical professionals; so, every experience is a financial gamble. I started my new "treatment" on Saturday, October 26, 2019. The instructions direct you to take two-three drops under the tongue twice a

Taopatch = scam?

So, as I sit fuming about not receiving my TaoPatch order within the promised time, this article popped up on my computer screen. I fear I may have been swindled. Oh, well, won't be the first time.                                                        MS patient shines a light on the harms of misleading media messages
