TaoPatch and Me


Although fall is my favorite season, that doesn't mean I want to practice the literal meaning more than I normally do. That is why I invested in a rather unorthodox treatment for my MS.

So, I haven't forgotten update you on my TaoPatch experience; I unforgivably lost interest for a minute. I'm back at it again after further review of the benefits and use.

Starting Saturday, I reintroduced my body to the TaoPatch by wearing it the advised four hours a day for the first week. Today is Day three and, while there are no obvious effects, I am experiencing a subtle shift in my balance. If this is only psychological, so be it. 
Albeit an expensive experiment, this alternative is worth it if it helps alleviate my hateful footdrop. 

Miracle scams are out there, I know. If the TaoPatch falls into that category, oh, well. It is impossible to pass judgment on third party study. I am willing to take one for the team and put myself out there for the MS community. Unfortunately, just like the disease itself, every Warrior is different. MS is often a uniquely personalized condition.

Don't take my word for it; just know that I speak my truth. The first-hand experience thus far:

- I am not good at filming myself on my phone. I know, not particularly interesting, but extremely relevant to the printed directions that state it is imperative to record walking gait before patch application and fifteen minutes after patch application. You're just gonna have to take my word for it. Any self-filming was equally non-qualifiable. I'll try again with that visual evidence later down the road.

- On the second day of taping myself to the TaoPatch, I exceeded the four-hour rule and wore the darn thing all day. Whether the fault of my negligence causing an actual Patch over-dose or the personality of the disease, I do not know; but the results weren't good. On the third day, I did not wear the Patch due to a migraine from the firey pits down below.

- So, I began again this weekend, mindful of the prescribed application. So far, I am cognizant of an apparent improvement in balance while wearing two TaoPatches: one on my chest and the other at the base of my neck.

- An underlying use of the TaoPatch is supposedly relief from TMJ. I will attest to the fact that after a Patch treatment, I do NOT grind my teeth at night. Coincidence? Who knows? I'm not complaining. I also believe in ghosts.

The jury is still out on this, my recent MS cure. I will keep you posted.

Have a great week,
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

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

The origin of a dream

                                                      September 2011 brought a new challenge for me as a public educator. I was to teach seventh grade for the first time. One would think that this could not possibly be much different than the eighth graders to whom I was accustomed; but, any instructor of middle-grade students is aware of the maturation occurring within the bodies and minds of these youngsters. It was only for one year that I added a class of seventh-graders to my curriculum. I needed a new idea or two in designing my daily lessons. A solution came to me early on. This group of seventh graders was particularly bright. After only two weeks of participating in ou8r weekly Friday Journal Sharing, a student had the audacity to ask me  to share my writing with the class.  "We know you're writing, Mrs. McCombs. You've even got a special journal to write in," James said. "And sometimes I see you laughing at what you're writing." The perceptive
