Thirty Days of MS Awareness Coming Your Way. Ideas welcome.

Awareness – Together We Are Stronger

Last march I committed to posting a blog post every day in March to raise awareness of MS. Although I have yet to see much information in the media about this for 2017, I am taking it upon myself to repeat my commitment.

Starting Wednesday, March 1, I will be posting a blog every day in the on the of March. That's  lot of planning and posting, friends, but it is my mission. Since March is my birth month and the green month of St. Patrick's Day, this ids a gift to my self.

I am looking for ideas for my daily post. Although this blog was originally created to share my journey with the MonSter, I have been known to include a variety of topics...I mean, life isn't ALL about MS, right? 

So far, I plan to discuss books and share some of my reviews. If you follow me at all you know of my passion for the written word. But, I am not the authority on books, so I welcome any suggestions. In fact, if anyone is interested in forming an on-line book club right here on Lisa's Page, I am ALL FOR IT!

I will also be following my MS in relationship to the changing season. Spring always presents issues of allergies, over the counter remedies, and good ol' West Virginia sinus issues as our bodies acclimate to what is supposed to be Earth's rebirth into warmer temps. How does this affect your MS?

Of course, I will be talking about my knitting...or lack there of. Yesterday I was right on track with my latest project. (I am knitting  socks on straight needles...hmmm.) So excited to count the correct about of stitches on my needle. So thrilled to be doing something different. Anxious to share my first sock with bestie Jodi. And happened...I counted again. I am still looking for those two lost stitches. I swear my cat stole them right out from under me. She's like that.

And, then there is the issue of camping. I LOVE to camp in Bemis, WV, and the time is drawing near when my family will be yearning for those mountain breakfasts, camp fires, and fresh stream fishing. Ahh...Are we there yet? So, I want to hear about your little peace of Earthly paradise because Bemis is definitely mine.

I also like to do a bit of research, and am more than willing to put my librarian skills to work for you. Give me your MS questions and I will enthusiastically put my undergrad degree to work.

Wow! That's a lot of writing to do. I had better get busy. So...

There will be no post on Monday. Gearing up for the big reveal on Wednesday.

Have a blessed weekend and I will see you then.

Love and Light,

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.


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…

MS Awareness Month: H is for Hair Appointments...Really?

H is for hair appointments. Okay, I know what you are thinking. "How can Lisa even think this is remotely important? I am struggling to get through the day. Who cares about my hair?" You're right. I really do not care about hair appointments any more. In fact, I have fallen into the category of old woman buns. That is not the point (As I am certain you have already ascertained.) The point is, do not forget your self image. Make that nail appointment, get that massage, read that book, order that dress, plant that flower. Tomorrow is not guaranteed.

So, if  H is not really for hair appointment, what is your MS H?

Let' make a list:

is for...

Healthy choices
Hampering the effects of MS
forming good Habits
Handicap parking (Without my placard I would NEVER go to                                     WalMart!)
Knowing you are NOT Helpless.
MS is not Hereditary.
Realizing you are a Hero of epic proportions. are...a Hero.

Share your thoughts on the letter H…
