Inner Peace


Image may contain: one or more people, text that says 'Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace. Dalai Lama'







It has been one rough school year! But, it is over...for now.

Graduation has come and gone; college application is complete; summer job secured; we will  sign up for his first semester classes on Friday...Now, we just wait.

Not only am I in need of inner peace, but my son is struggling to find his as well. Sickness, appointments, confusion, anticipation...
I am so glad I survived those days  long ago and can concentrate on enjoying the spoils I have received. 

He will not be attending his first choice university, but that is okay. I really believe good will come of this if he just gives it a chance. One year...that is all I ask. It's virtually a free ride and time to re-evaluate his future goals. 

As anyone knows who has lived with a teenager, it is difficult to live with someone who is certain that he knows it ALL. I remember being there myself and hating myself for being such a pain. But it is a necessary stage in life. I fervently apologize to my parents for being such a pseudo-genius. At least my son's unnerving knowledge of all that exists has only been a short while rather than is entire high school career. I only became his mortal enemy in the last few months. It is now my goal to persevere and surround myself with white light this summer. I can do this.

I can do this.

I can do this.

Happy Memorial Day,
Lisa

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

ABCD...CBD

Week two of my latest MS  extinction adventure.. CBD oil. What exactly is it supposed to do? I'm told that individuals who imbibe in one form or another experience less physical pain and possibly a calming sense of self. Some have also tossed one or more or many to all of their prescribed medications in favor of CBD,  My biggest question is "How do you know which of the table cover of pills do you eliminate?" I am  not much of a dare devil any more and my pocketbook isn't equipped for extensive experimentation. remember I have a college freshman to support. (Oh, and he's doing fine so far; Thanks for asking. More about that later.) It makes the most sense to me to play with the mood maintenance first. I take 50 MG of Sertralin each night before bed. It is fairly good at keeping me on an even keel. I've missed doses before and it becomes crystal, as in clear, after twenty four hours that my system is missing something.                                 

JusT NOT FeeliNg my Best

JUsT not Feeling My BesT It’s one of THOSE days. Foot drop is really P…..g me off. Balance has taken an unexpected vacation. And to top it off, I get to go to every lady’s favorite doctor visit tomorrow morn. Yep. It’s mammo time for Lisa. Yeehaw! Photo by National Cancer Institute on  Unsplash Look at that technician smiling like this is the most fun ev-er. Or is she laughing ‘cause that’s not her mammary being pancaked at early o'clock in the morning? So, with March going out like a lion tonight (71 degrees yesterday, snow forecast tomorrow), this is my April Fools Day gift. Not funny. But, seriously, getting a mammogram is probably one of the most important medical tests. Don’t forget to schedule yours. Because of COVID, mine has been re-scheduled twice. If you have had one of the vaccines, this article may interest you. I had my second vaccine in mid-February, so I think I’m safe to proceed. Doctors urge women to delay mammogram until 4–6 weeks after COVID-19 vaccine https://w
