Bored? Let me help you.

I think she's my new hero.

                                                                                         BORED? BUY SHOES.

With President extending the stay-at-home request for our nation, I have decided to extend my personal MS Awareness campaign. Actually, I really didn't need an excuse since my MS isn't going anywhere. 

While I have been adjusting to my new reality since 2001, COVID19 presents an entirely new chapter to the journey of many MS Warriors.  We are already self- isolation professionals. That, of course, doesn't make us immune to the horrors of this global pandemic; but it does raise alarms on credit card bills. (Didn't expect that turn of events, did ya?)

If you follow me at all, you're privy to my ongoing quest to find acceptable shoe wear to accommodate my AFO. You know of my ever-growing Converse All-Star collection and the issues with weather-related challenges they face. You're also aware of the expenses mounting with my ongoing internet shoe purchases. Fortunately, I have been allowed to return those shoes that don't work for me. 

I  have not lost my enthusiasm for unearthing the perfect shoe, though. is a wonderful blog to find shoe suggestions. Although Ardra over at does not wear an AFO, she is a terrific resource for finding the answers to many many accessory questions. She'll help you spend some money $$$

Looking for shoes may not be your current concern. I mean, it'slike purchasing a car right now. No one's supposed to go anywhere, so why bother looking for transportation or shoes?  

If shopping isn't on your list of interests, look at these other MSWarrio blogs (There are SO many more out there.) to connect with others like us.

I could go on for a long time, but then you'd have no time to red about other MS Warriors isolation ideas.

We'll talk about yarn tomorrow.

Stay safe. Stay well. Stay home.

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…

Writing an Appeal

I am looking for advice. Some  of you know that my insurance denied any assistance with acquiring the Walk Aide L300; mostly on the basis of a lack of clinical evidence that that the device is not necessary to the diagnosis of MS. 

I am now filing an appeal and am looking for suggestions/advice/prior experience in the appeal process.Thus far, my rough draft is equal in volume to a short story. "Cause, y'know, I like to write.

If  there are words of wisdom out there (I know there are), please share with me. If you have attempted to leave comments here in the past and failed, that issue is fixed (Thank you, Rebecca), so I implore you to spread your words here

Thanks in advance.

Have a wonderful weekend,
