You are invited to Letters to the MonSter


        Spiritual Healing Clinic



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

awesome avenues 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 with MS."

So, I am asking you to talk to your personal MonSter and over the summer months, share with this blog your thoughts. 

Thank you in advance,
Lisa




            LETTERS TO THE MonSter

I know you are under my bed. I can hear you breathing. Even though I do not like you much, at least your presence is apparent this morning. Sometimes your silence is alarming. Although my mind knows you are a constant companion, you deceive anyone else in my presence. The way you allow me to physically appear “normal” is not fair. Other people do not know how difficult it is to function on a daily business. My smile is a lie.

You also hide in my closet, forcing me to tightly seal the door every night before going to sleep. My dreams are heavy enough without confusing images: hospitals and wheelchairs and colorful nightmares encouraged by the pharmacy that decorates the bedside table top. I do not need to see you in my slumber since I know you will hand me my daily costume in the morning. Your existence is apparent in the stretchy trousers, sensible shoes, and worn skirts that clutter the racks where once fashion heels and sexy jeans abound.
I saw you in my car yesterday, right smack dab in the driver’s seat, grinning like a lunatic while you beckoned me to take the wheel. Knowing full well that my foot would not and could not press the brake pedal quickly enough to keep me and other driver’s others out of harm. You plant memories of those wild sports car days, when I ripped down the highway enjoying the grind of gears as I shifted from one to the other.
Yes, those were the days. Now you have forced me to evaluate my ability to logically be the driver. It isn’t fun. It just makes sense. And since Common Sense is your arch enemy, I keep him close to me at all times.
You may enjoy reminding me that you are not finished with me yet, but I have a surprise for you. I have only just begun to wage my war. We are going to have years of conversation, most of which you will not like. But, that’s okay; at least we are on common ground in that respect.

So, talk to me, MonSter. Thumb your nose all you want. I’ve nothing but time and I am NOT going anywhere. In the immortal words of hell raising Pat Benatar, “Hit me with your best shot."

 Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Well you're a real tough cookie with a long history
Of breaking little hearts like the one in me
That's okay, let's see how you do it
Put up you dukes, let's get down to it
Hit me with your best shot
Why don't you hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire away
You come on with it, come on
You don't fight fair
That's okay, see if I care
Knock me down, it's all in vain
I get right back on my feet again
Hit me with your best shot
Why don't you hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire away
Well you're a real tough cookie with a long history
Of breaking little hearts like the one in me
Before I put another notch in my lipstick case
You better make sure you put me in my place
Hit me with your best shot
C'mon, hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire away
Hit me with your best shot
Why don't you hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire away

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…
