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.
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
