MS Awareness Month 2021, Day 7

                      MS Awareness Month 2021, Day 7

Today I list my gratitudes:

The sun is shining.

It is Sunday.

I am physically attending church for the first time in over a year.

My family is well.

Tomorrow is in the past. I realize the negative undertones of that statement, but we have days like that. Yesterday was mine. I was in great physical pain; mainly due to my legs not cooperating. I found myself people watching at the chopping mall and wishing out loud that I could once again walk like them. 

I saw that girl in the heels bouncing along the corridors. I envied the chick in the Crocs whose feet STAYED inside her shoes. I lusted after the ease with which that girl wore those cowboy boots.

I cried all the way home.

Then I realized what I had done. I drove myself the twenty miles to the neighboring town. I didn't fall once. I didn't pee myself. I accomplished what I needed to do. and, even though I needed my walker, I had two legs.

The MonSter reminds us to be grateful.

Find gratitude in even the small things today.

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

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

Taopatch = scam?

So, as I sit fuming about not receiving my TaoPatch order within the promised time, this article popped up on my computer screen. I fear I may have been swindled. Oh, well, won't be the first time.                                                        MS patient shines a light on the harms of misleading media messages
