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

Post semi-panic

I rarely panic where my health is concerned. I mean, what is there left that I haven't experienced thus far living with the MonSter? 

[Screech...rhetorical question...don't really want to know the answer.]

But, I had a moment last week and bowed to my inner devil's advocate.

Thank goodness I have an excellent medical cheerleader in my camp. Ericka Blackwell may not be a fully credentialed neurologist, but  her compassion and interest is sincere and vastly more professional than many licensed neurologists I have met on this journey. So, she scheduled  an appointment  and sat patiently with me while we hashed out my current questions regarding my MS.

My biggest concern lately is the fact that my right (foot) toes (big toe and little one beside it) have been curling up painfully on a daily basis, further hampering the annoying foot drop that rules my world. Well, guess what? There is a muscle relaxant called Baclofin that is basically side-effect free that will help me with this.…
