Just trying to catch up...

I know, I know...it's been forever since my last posting. Sorry to disappoint anyone out there who actually cares that there was nothing here to read of late, but I have found that having a life-long disease is a very good reason to embrace disappointment. Not trying to be a whiner, I just haven't had the energy for "one more" extracurricular activity. This is why I wish I could get a paid for my disease. I mean I "do it" every single day.

Yesterday I had my annual neuro appointment and met the latest in a long line of med students who asked the same elementary questions as the last one as well as my own doctor. I bare my soul to these educated in dividuals by sharing all of the knowledge I have acquired over the last 12 months leave with much less knowledge than I was given at the last visit. I hope they take good notes. I think it's rather unfair that I bring to their table loads of updates on symptoms, results of experimental exercises and holistic treatments, and insight into what MS is doing to me at time; but I receive in return an appointment date for next year. Oh, I do get to have my first MRI in several years, just so we can see if anything has changed and, if so, it will warrant a return to a medicine regime. Why do "they" insist that we be the guinea pig to suffer through another false sense of security disguised in another injectin or pill?

I say Yoga is the cure!

Not really, but it certainly feels better than another round of my mind numbing medication.

Glad to be back, though.

God bless!

Riding the MS broom

Do you ever feel like the ultimate witchy woman? That is actually a rhetorical question because I know you do. We all do whether we mean it or not. And guess what? We have a right to feel that way. Our brand of broom is a touch one to ride. That is why I truly believe that our supreme master, who ever/whatever that may be, doesn't throw us more than we can catch.

MSers (I read recently that this is an inappropriate way in which to refer to individuals with multiple sclerosis. The source of this judgement obliviously does not live with the disease. MS Warriors are far less offended by such a label than that.) are strong individuals who thrive on finding a purpose, a solution, a balance.

We are dependent on our co-pilot Common Sense. Care Givers are a beautiful addition to our lives, but many MSers (I did it again!) are not fortunate to have someone to clean our broom and dust off the daily spider webs that clutter the  cognitive mess of our brains. I learned that long before MS becam…

Yoga Burn gives new incentive to my morning routine.

I am not one much for online shopping indulgences, but a couple of weeks ago I allowed myself the rare treat of purchasing the Yoga Burn program advertised on Face Book. This morning I completed week one of the monthly scheduled routine and I even took time to meditate under the guidance of Yoga instructor Zoe Bray Cotton.

Laugh if you must, but I really, really, enjoyed the meditation exercise. I realize this is a solitary activity and I will never practice this in front of husband and/or son. 

I felt wonderful afterword, though. So at peace and relaxed. I always knew I was a Zen Goddess at heart.

What I really love about this program is that it "is a comprehensive online yoga course directed toward women only."  The older I get, the more I appreciate anything to do with "for women only". Weird, huh?

Zoe' voice is so very soft and inviting. As she leads me through my morning poses, I really feel as though she is my new morning bestie. Of course, I have only comple…

This Writer's Euphoric Journey

It is November and that means National Novel Writing Month. I participate every year. As always, I am behind on my writing goal for the month: WRITE 50,000 WORDS  IN 30 DAYS. 

With only two days to go, I still need 10,000 to finish. 

So...I will see you here again on Wednesday or at the end of my journey of 50,000 words. Until then, breathe.
