BORED? READ!





  BORED? READ!

                                                                 

Don't need shoes? Not much of a yarn person? I'm not judging.
The best, VERY BEST way to combat boredom is to READ. Sure, I have books for sale, just look below, but I'm not the only fabulous author out there. Even if you are not necessarily inclined to pick up a book just for fun, there is no better way to keep your mind active and your hands free from mischief. Charge up your tablet or go old fashion (the best ) way and open that first page to allow yourself to fall into another world. 

You don't necessarily have to buy anything (Credit cards are safe). I'm certain you have some form of the written word at your beck and call. Have a Bible? EVERY mode of writing is found right there: horror, romance, historical, crime, reality, mystery.

How about meeting an author up close and personal from your tablet or computer screen? It's happening all over the globe. My publishing house family is right in the thick of things. Check it out.

Headline authors also offer FaceBook readings.

Several years ago my mother gifted me with a Kindle Fire on 
which I own a variety of titles. Recently I updated to a larger, 
fancier device and am still trying to figure out how to transfer 
previous purchases. Regardless of what I read on this new "toy", 
I am reading nonetheless. 
The point is, reading is a wonderful way to kill time.

If you are desperate for reading suggestions, I can help. 
Of course I want to be your favorite author, but I'm not
 necessarily my own favorite author.

Post semi-panic

I rarely panic where my health is concerned. I mean, what is there left that I haven't experienced thus far living with the MonSter? 

[Screech...rhetorical question...don't really want to know the answer.]

But, I had a moment last week and bowed to my inner devil's advocate.

Thank goodness I have an excellent medical cheerleader in my camp. Ericka Blackwell may not be a fully credentialed neurologist, but  her compassion and interest is sincere and vastly more professional than many licensed neurologists I have met on this journey. So, she scheduled  an appointment  and sat patiently with me while we hashed out my current questions regarding my MS.

My biggest concern lately is the fact that my right (foot) toes (big toe and little one beside it) have been curling up painfully on a daily basis, further hampering the annoying foot drop that rules my world. Well, guess what? There is a muscle relaxant called Baclofin that is basically side-effect free that will help me with this.…

There is no GPS for MS

I have always been a rather trusting person. I believe that when someone tells me they are going  to do something in particular, I believe them. Until they renege on their promise; and then  they no long exist to me.I don't mean I hate or thwart them. That person just no longer holds my interest.

The same with 21st century technology. In today's advanced world of communication, it is imperative that we place our  trust in helpful devices like microwaves, electric garage door openers, and this wonderful invention called GPS (Global Positioning System/ Satellite). What a marvelous thing to be able to type in an address and be taken there, step-by-step. We will never be lost again!

Wrong.

If you are frequent reader of Lady with the Cane, you know that my son is starting university this fall. A lover of all things academic, I KNOW I am more excited than he, so while he is off doing summer things Mom is reliving her glory days with visits to his soon-to-be new home and reacquainting h…
