Today's Purpose

                                             Today's Purpose

Does she ever stop sharing information? You ask.

Isn't there something else she could be doing? You ponder.

Will she ever stop posting about multiple sclerosis? You want to know?

Get a life! You scream at the screen.

Or not. Maybe you really do learn something from my rantings. If so, thank you and you're welcome.

I love causes. I'm crazy about projects. I need a purpose in my life and I always have a campaign in need of attention.

Currently, I am preparing to immerse myself into the findings offered in this book:

the LDN Book

My copy is ordered. I'm anxious to learn more about Low Dose Naltrexone and it's relationship to the treatment of multiple sclerosis, among other neurological conditions.
It sounds promising.
That's all I'm gonna give you on the topic for now = official cliff hanger.

Instead, I'll let you in on today's challenge.

Today, May 1, 2020, is the first-ever #WMPitch event on Twitter. The purpose of this event is to draw agent attention to current writing projects in the hope of nailing that one successful pitch. 

The rules: Tweet three separate book pitches any time between 8AM and 8PM today. I posted my first pitch at the strike of 8AM and am anxious to add another in a little while. If an agent is interested, he/she will ❤️ my tweet, which means I need to investigate that agent and contact he/she ASAP. It's exciting. It's nail-biting. Its another step toward my purpose of acquiring a literary agent. 

Want to help? 

 Go to @LisaAMcCombs on twitter and retweet my pitch. Don't heart it. Don't comment. Just retweet.

Thank you. 

Have a great weekend.

Happy May!

Lisa, the lady with the cane

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!


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…
