I believe I killed my only friend...

If you follow me at all, you are aware of my current blog dilemma. I foolishly thought I could advance my readership and become a big girl blogger by changing over to a more well-known site. After over a week of daily tears, remorse, self-doubt, and abandonment, I have come to the conclusion that change is not always a good thing. 

At this time I no longer now the difference between "disable" and "enable" or "https" and that other "htt-whatever"; I think I may have inadvertently purchased mysterious stuff that will appear on my charge card bill; I have no idea why I am no longer receiving "views" on this site (What the h-e-double hockey sticks did I push?). I am forced to wonder how that MA and four undergrad degrees is helping me now. In fact, I am about to just chuck it all sand revert back to the days of recording in cursive all of my thoughts in my long-hand diary. At least I know I can still do that.

So, if there is anyone out there who can help...no...DO this for me, I am eternally grateful. Never have I felt so worthless that I cannot maneuver the simple(?) steps of setting up a Word Press site. And it not the fault of Word Press, or Blogger, or even President Trump. I just CANNOT do this.

Bottom line...I miss my friend, my blog. First thing in the morning, after a few yoga poses,  I bring my coffee with me to work on www.lis-mccombs@blogspot.com and now I have this fancy domain name www.TheLadywiththeCane.com (of which I was not too long ago rather proud). But what do I do with this new acquisition How do I use it to grow my readership, make new friends, and help fellow MS Warriors?

Help me!

Enough about me...

Just wanted to share this with anyone who might still receive notifications form this blog. Tomorrow evening there is a webinar about driving and MS. I plan to be there. Check out this site for more information:

It's not that learning more about our disease is fun, but at least MS makes more sense than all this technical jargon. 

Did I really just say that?

Yep.

So, join the webinar and try to make sense of MS.

9/11 Where were you?

Other than in March do I post multiple times during the week, but during my morning perusal of other MS blogs, I came across this very timely blog post. It reminded me early in the morn the significance of this very day: 9/11.
Any major event of disaster prompts us to reflect on the basic question of "where were you?" There is no doubt that you know very well where you were when the planes hit the Towers.
 Standing behind my podium in room 310 at Miller Junior High School, I looked up from my testing manual to glare at the intruder who opened the classroom door. I was giving a test. My students didn't need any distractions.
That didn't stop the neighboring science teacher who came directly up to me and whispered in my ear "The Twin Towers have been attacked. Meet in Steve's office next period."
I struggled to keep an unbiased face and continue my teacherly responsibilities. Several of my students were related to first res-ponders, fire fighters, and Nationa…

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…

MonSter, beware!

As I scroll through my correspondence this morning, I see a trend unfolding that needs a FIX, big time.

It is so very easy for anyone to become depressed, blue, or melancholy. MS Warriors are even more susceptible to this malaise because the MonSter robs us of things others often take for granted. 


MSLuckDuck, you are a super hero. Life gets us down, for sure, but know that your thoughts and words lift me up every time I log onto your blog.

MS-Understood, I am so happy to find a fellow lover of all things autumn! I lift my pumpkin latte (If I actually had one in my hand:) in salute of your day. The best season ever is right around the  corner.

As for me, the tears are a bay today. It is going to be a great day.
MonSter, beware...You do not touch me today!
