Do something nice for yourself




No matter how long I live in the company of the MonSter, I never get used to it. I get tired of pushing through the day on legs that will not move and feet that cannot feel. 

After treating myself to a gentle yoga class this morning, I could barely move. I forced myself to ride the stationary bike to further stretch my frozen calf muscles and things loosened up a bit, but for the rest of the day I have felt half-baked. My toes continue to curl and my arms are just useless.

Tomorrow I get to bowl (yippee) and just wonder if I can even make it to the bowling alley. I don't figure anyone would miss me, but I refuse to give in to this beast. Even if it means falling flat on my face to the ridicule of an entire bowing alley. Just another day in the life...

On a lighter note, look what our MS Warriors in Belfast, Ireland, do for themselves.  Looks like a neat idea.

It isn't always easy to feel worthy of self-indulgence, but it is really important. I did something for myself yesterday. I finished my letter of appeal to the insurance company regarding coverage for the Bioness L300.

Here's a link if you care to read it. Comments, suggestions, advice, all are welcome.

Do something nice for yourself this week. I'd advise steering clear of gentle yoga class for a while:)

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…

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!!!!!!!
