MS Awareness Month

I finally did it. I wrote to Ellen about MS Awareness. I have no desire to be on her show and I am not asking for personal gain. I only want public awareness to be announced in a place I will never have access. Maybe on the heels of a Hollywood disclosure (Selma Blair, for those of you who did not know.) multiple sclerosis awareness will claim a larger audience. 

Fingers crossed.

On a smaller scale, don't forget that I am donating a large portion of my book sales to NMSS during the month of March. You can access my book on Amazon or at Headline Books. Any books purchased directly from me will be autographed. I pay postage and will include a little MS bling.

I can walk!!!!

Yes, once again I am guilty of plagiarism. This is just too good not to share.
Even though I am smart enough to know the truth of my latest findings, the actuality of my experiment is crazy exciting.
End result: I can walk!!!!!!!

I'm back just in time for my MS Walk

Hello, hello, hello!!!!!

I'm back!

I couldn't address emails properly.

I couldn't write this blog and I really, really missed that.

I couldn't play my Facebook games or look up ridiculous trivia for which I only care.

I DID knit a lot, though; which means I binge watched a lot of Netflix (Have you seen The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina?); which means I snacked a lot; which means my jeans no longer fit comfortably...

Oh, well, it is what it is...

Isn't it interesting how all the elements of our daily life often fall into these unplanned yet strategically organized patterns? :Some good. Some not so good.

Well, I find that is exactly how it is with multiple sclerosis. MS is NOT predictable even when we try to force it's awkward shape into o…
