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

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…


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 …

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,

NOW IN KINDLE FORMAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
