MS isn't our only enemy.

 So, it's over. We can finally put all of our election angst aside and get on with our lives. 

Or can we?

I am NOT a political individual and I refuse to debate with anyone about anything: politics, region, the price of  gas...

MS has made me rather complacent in many ways and extremely strong in others. For example I do not take crap fro anyone any more. My rug days are over. Do not even attempt to walk on me. End of story. No argument. Debate over. That is my opinion and there is not room for discussion as far as I am concerned.

Do not confuse this attitude with resilience. I just do not want to argue my point because I feel that I have nothing to prove. I just want to live peacefully in my own little cocoon that I call life.

I realize this is not a popular philosophy with a lot of people and  I apologize. If you are looking for a good argument, count me out. My brain just doesn't have room for all the clutter that debate requires. I tell my own mother this often. She truly loves a good debate. She will argue until the cows come home or decide to move to Argentina. One of her biggest daily gripes is that my dad refuses to pack his own brain with what he views as useless information, making me realize how much I can identify with him. If you know my dad, this might be cause for concern. Don't worry. He and are both quite content on our Cloud of Oblivion. Just give him a deck o pinochle cards and me a good book and life is good.

So, on this day after, grow  big smile and be thankful for what we have in this life. It certainly has been an entertaining ride and definitely hone for the history books.

Good Day,
Lisa

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.
