Monday, Monday...




No photo description available.Ya want to know what MS looks like? Well, here ya go.

My head ache began Saturday afternoon (that's  two days ago, it you are reading this post publication) and it's not only still hanging around, it's worse. The sledge hammer imprint makes wonder if I walked into a wall and don't remember. The area around my left eye is actually tender and my vision is blurred.

Ibuprofen doesn't help. A warm cloth doesn't help. Meditation doesn't help. And my cat's constant yammering doesn't help.

So, not only does MS look like a frayed wire,  it feels like one also.

I won't let it get me down, though. I can't. I will slap some duct tape on it and forge ahead. 


                                                                                            Duct Tape, Silver - ULINE - 2" x 60 yds - 4 Rolls

Isn't that what we Warriors do?

So, no, I may not look sick (You've heard that before, right?), but that wire definitely isn't healthy. Unfortunately where the wire can be fixed, replaced, or discarded, the MonSter in me cannot. 

So, give me another high priced band aid (Gilenya, Copaxone, Tecfedera...whatever your dmd) and send me out into the dark world of reality. Because the day happens whether you feel like participating or not. 

Happy Monday,
Lisa, the Lady with the Cane

BORED? ARE YOU A COUCH POTATO?

Bored? Are you a couch potato?

If you are already prone to this malady, the following information may be dangerous in encouraging this behavior. This writer is not responsible for damages done.

As a result of today's blog topic,  my personal couch potato activities are responsible for the lack of yesterday's post. In an attempt to justify my actions, I blame Netflix (in the name of research).

 The best way to prove a fact is to test it, right? Yesterday I definitely put Netflix to the test by watching hours of Safe, a one-season Harlon Coben creation that whetted my love for crime/mystery/action-based entertainment. Harlon Coben is an American author whose work I have enjoyed immensely over the years,  discovering Safe as Coben's break out into film became that much sweeter when The Five caught my attention another series of his own. I will finish The Five today (unless some saves me) so that I can further investigate Coben with viewings of The Stranger. I might take a break …

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 day for th…

Hodge Podge of MS info

...Warriors are their own physician. So,Warrior, heal thyself!



Ten days since I mailed in my request appeal for coverage in acquiring L300 GO. Nine days since starting my latest journey with CBD oil. Since then I have received confirmation that my appeal is being reviewed AND I have upped my daily oil dosage from 3 drops to 5. The biggest change I've observed is that I'm in a much better mood, so maybe Zoloft will be the first med I can eliminate from my personal pharmacy. Will keep ya posted.

Thinking positive about both ventures, but content with the outcome no matter what. I am NOT in control of my destiny and the man upstairs knows my needs, so it rests in His hands; but, I've got a brain and as long as that brain is functioning I'll continue to search for relief. And that's okay. I am grateful for the opportunity to continue fighting the MonSter by whatever means I am given.

In fact I'm already checking out my next chapter in fighting this 
bugger. 

With my phy…
