Today's Yoga On the Go

Early morning at my house is the most peaceful portion of my day. It is the perfect time to practice stretching and limbering in hopes that today I will walk without hesitation. Today I will not fall for no visible reason. Today I will motivate myself from point one to all points in between with a little memory of that graceful gait I once entertained.

And today I am going to find out if Amprya is really the walking solution to my MS that I hope it is.

I know, I know...I swore to stay away from MS prescription drugs and to go it on my own. I would be seriously remiss, though, if I didn't follow my own rantings and give it a try. From my research I cannot find any extreme dangers with Amprya. The possibility of seizure activity seems to be the number one side effect and it is a long shot. I just want to walk with some semblance of normalcy. I'll give it a try if my neurologist says I qualify.

So, I've had my yoga session with the very handsome Kurt (I think that's his name) on Veria. My coffee is yummy this morning. I have completed the dusting and will perform the Monday vacuuming when this rant is compete. Then I will have a little breakfast and take a nice bath; gussy up a bit for my appointment: and be on the road. (It doesn't hurt that my journeys will also include a visit to Barnes and Noble AND - drum roll, please, - my book illustrator. Keep your fingers crossed for me.)

Kurt's mini sermon this morning encouraged me to FOCUS, so I plan to focus on the positive no matter what that entails.

Forward thinking.
Orderly mindset.
Common sense at all times.
Using my time wisely
Smiling through the pain.

I am focused on the perfect cup of Starbucks. I am focused on a lovely meeting with Ashley Teets (Headline Books). I am focused on a GOOD visit with Dr. Brick. And  I am focused on making MS Awareness Month 2016 the best ever.

Tomorrow officially begins MS Awareness Month 2016 and I hope you will focus your intentions on supporting this cause. Don't forget that I am personally donating one dollar from each book sale to the MS Society. I will pay for postage or personally deliver your book(s) if you live relatively near me. (I'm retired. I don't mind taking a little road trip.) Just e-mail me at LisaAnnetteMcCombs@yahoo.com

MS Awareness Month: The Letter K

K is for keeping up with Jones's. 
Get rid of this philosophy RIGHT NOW. You are special. You are unique. You are a Warrior. You are a Super Star. MS does not define you. 

We have enough on our plates without worrying about without the rest of the coming and goings in our neighborhood, church, community, family. So what if Bubba got a new ski boat or Nibby Neighbor Nancy is planning - loudly - her spring cruise. I celebrate daily getting out of bed. No, I am not downplaying the excitement surrounding these happy moments in the lives of those folks we know. As MS Warriors, we sometimes need to remember that life hold more bonuses than money can buy.

This morning I am reminded that spring is on its way. Sure, I saw the news and I am well aware of the snow storm that promises to pelt our country in a few hours. I am ready. Milk in the fridge. Bread in the pantry. Flashlights battered up. But, behind that storm is spring and my favorite scent of all times: lilac. Don't ya just love t…

The N of MS.

N is for not allowing MS to win. This easy. Refer to A-M and O-Z.

As MS Warriors it is our job, our responsibility, and our mission to provide information, support, insight, and understanding to this ridiculous disease.

#WeAreStrongerThanMS

When I say we need to provide information, I am not just talking about clinical research and statistics. If you are living with MS or are close to someone with the MonSter, you have more information than can be found on the internet. YOU are the expert. YOU are the prime resource for what's what in this crazy land of MS. You experience(s) is invaluable.

Supporting the fight against MS wears many hats. Sure, you can make a monetary donation, but that is not always feasible in this tight-budget minded world. I am definitely preaching to the choir here. As a retired school teacher, I am facing quite a few unplanned expenses. No, money is not the only way, or necessarily the best way to offer assist…

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.
