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

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!!!!!!! Study Finds Exposure to Organic Solvents, Smoking and MS Genes Interact to Increase Risk of Getting MS July 3, 2018 SUMMARY
A study of more than 2,000 people with MS in Sweden suggests that people who had occupational exposure to organic solvents and certain MS susceptibility genes were much more likely to develop MS than those without MS genes.In addition, they found significant additive effects such that having MS genes along with exposure to solvents and cigarette smoking created a 30-fold increased risk of developing MS.ALERT!!!!!!!!!!  “Avoidance of cigarette smoke and unnecessary exposure to organic solvents, particularly in combination, would appear rea…

I'm back just in time for my MS Walk

Hello, hello, hello!!!!!

I'm back!

It has been a very long week without my computer. Yes, I know, anti-techie me, I really said that. I never realized how much I depended on my pooter until I didn't have it any more.

I was unable to review books on Readers Favorite. 

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…
