New Year Resolutions I WILL Keep

Happy New Year, MonSter. Here we go again. Welcome to 2020. I don't know what you have in store for me this decade, but this is my agenda:

1. Publish two new books; one of which YOU, MonSter, are the main character. Excited? Well, don't be. You're not the hero.

2. Continue exercising every day, even if it's just a few minutes of simple stretches. 

3. Stress less. Pray More. How? Refer to items one and two.

2019 brought to me...

*an incredibly stressful year for my high school senior, resulting in his first semester of university...hoping for a better stretch of academia for him. 

*new and frightening MS pains, symptoms, and treatment struggles

*a new and improved bowling average...90  currently with a notable 100 a few weeks ago

*a successful NaNoWriMo

I know that can't be everything, but my dear friend MS has really attacked my cognitive abilities this year. 

Oh, well...

Happy New Year,
Lisa, Lady with the Cane

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…

L 300

Good Monday!

Big do-in's last week in my MS World.

After wearing myself out with my petty pink leg, I finally got brave and called Hanger Clinic to inquire about the L300 Walk Aid.

Several years go I was fitted for an older version but when insurance did not recognize the device as a necessary medical item, my  hopes were dashed and I gave up.

On a whim I renewed my interest to discover a newer model called the L300. Where the original device required a shoe insert AND a leg cuff, the L300 is just a cuff. So, of course I figured this would be even MORE expensive. But, I made an aoppointment any way.

The certificated orthopedist clinic owner encouraged me to contact my insurance to inquire again. Guess what? With the medical code he gave me as well as a letter of authorization, insurance will pay 80%! It is still a bit pricey but I think I can wing this!

I just hope this is the route for me. With the assistance of Walk Aid, I can wear regular shoes or even go bare foot!  I know it will r…
