Hey, those masks are neat! They also look like a lot of work! Do you get many orders off of your website? I live in a major Mardi Gras city, we are a bit crazy here I think... ahem (we are going to drop a giant moon pie here on New Years eve... do you get the point?) and we have so many society's and balls. If you really wanted to sell masks I'm sure they'd be a hit if you could get them publicized here! :)

yes, it is... although I took her book and learned it from there, now if you look at my stuff, some things you can really see the one-stroke such as the pic you commented on, and other things it looks more like 'tole painting'? I've been told. I just have fun, paiting things I see.... and enjoy it as much as I can, although when my hands shake it can be a bother... which is why I enjoy the wider brushes, it stops the shakes so much, the tiny brush makes it too visible when I jerk, but the wide brush lets my flow. :) I enjoy it, it helps me relax. :)

leather masks? That sounds cool! Can you show me pictures? I used to enjoy reading, it was something I loved, but I just can't seem to get into it any more after this flare of whatever I've got, I just can't focus my mind on anything for long and I just can't do it to read a book. I do try though, and comic books seem to do the best. :) I think if I'd find some good books at the library that I haven't read I would be ok, it's just that I've read almost everything I like at our local branch. :)

yeah, I know, a distraction would be good. Do you like music? Check out pandora . com It's a free radio station that allows you to create your own radio station without any adds or annoying stuff, and you can pick your own artists. I love it! Ummm.... do you like to create stuff? I love to paint greeting cards... check out my latests pics.
Sorry, not feeling very helpful tonight, I think I'm cachting the flu, hope you find more fun things to do to keep your mind occupied, if you do let me know, I was bored today!

I didn't know the brain could rewire itself.  I know the heart will grow small capillaries to feed itself if the main arteries can't do it on their own.  Amazing thing these bodies, aren't they!  - Laura

You are exactly like me...I tried to read my brain MRI from today.  Of course I see obvious lesions, but others that I think are lesions, may be nothing at all but an artifact.  I really wish I could learn the skill, but I hear it takes years and years to study to be a radiologist.  But it's so fascinating, isn't it?  Please let me know what you report says.  Don't forgot, okay?  I am anxious like you are.  Big Hugs, Heather

Jenn - I agree that some of your spinal slices ARE suspicious but I am just not qualified to know enough to advise anyone.  Even mine that is clearly identified on one of my MRI's, is hard to see, but the radiologist showed me how it looked different from the rest of the cord.  The lesion in the T spine has now been there for 13 years.  I just had a brain MRI today.  Of course, I tried to guess at what I saw, but I better wait for the Rad report.  Last MRI I had 12 lesions in the brain, wonder what it is this time?  Heather

Just a quick note to say hi! hey i go back on the 8th of December as well.  Or is your appt. later.  I tried to get my Dr to give me the info over the phone but he said NO he wouldn't entertain giving me an answer over the phone. (I was speaking to the MS nurse) and got her to ask him for me...

oh well not long for either of us now.  I have no idea what to expect as all my MRI scans have always been clear so I keep thinking this one will be the same and I think I want an answer but maybe i don't.. because then it has progressed.  I feel like I have got worse. I know he won't change his mind he has told me he believes it is TM.  I am still looking for other easy answers.. but starting to accept he is right. Can't wait for results.  Keep me posted how you go.

Hi Jen,
just wondered have you got your results yet from your spinal MRI?  When do you go back to the Dr?  I only have 10 days to wait now. Hooray. Hope you are well.

Jen, that transcript is VERY interesting.  I wish I knew what the date of it was.  The interviewer (William Stuart) is the editor of the resource book that I commonly use, The Handbook of Multiple Sclerosis.  So this discussion is between two very high-powered docs in MS.  Also there seem to be some great videos from that Healthology.com site.  Bingo!  I need to print out what they are because it makes a great reference.  Wonderful topics!  Thanks for the tip.  Quix

Hiya, so I saw the comments on my MRI's... you are fast! :) The cd has 1.300 pics of my brain... so I just grabbed a few to put up. I think they did a "bit" better job don't you? Considering my last MRI only had around 100 pictures. I do wish I could put the other's MRI's up for comparisons, it's amazing to see the difference in resolution. :)
I saw the neatest picture in an MRI office one day, it was off a of all the vessels of the brain highlighted by some test, with the rest of the brain black and non-visible, it was actually pretty like art- I had to smile and wish I could share it with the forum. :)

Yes, the mitochondrial disease is what they were testing for in the first place, but they said I had many other neurological things happening to which is what was confusing them. I love to picture you jogging, even if it only did last for 5 minutes. Dreams are fun, nightmares are awful.... unfortnetly I get more of the latter than dreams. But I can always hope, right?

Just a quick note to say hi!  Hi there,
thanks Jen, I will have a look later.  Not that I will be able to work it out and umm I guess I shouldn't go assuming anything.. just being impatient.  I have never had a bell ring on my MRI before but I don't think it meant anything, certainly didn't stop the machine.  This is my 6th MRI and my second one within 12mths.. the rest were years and years ago on old machines. IF you could email me the links?  Sedah_hades***@****  (i am terrible at  getting links to work) thanks would appreciate it.

hey there, thanks for the link about the LP, the pic does look familiar, although i was on my tummy. Do we have a HP about LP's? Not to scare anyone of course, but we have them enough that it could be helpful and all.
Hope you are having a good day,

Hi, just wanted to let you know that I'm hoping that your neuro psych test goes easily today, and that you will feel like sharing  your experience.  My new MS specialist is board certified in psychiatry as well as neurology, so I'm thinking I may have such a test in my future.  Take care,  Kathy

It's true...you CAN'T let him get away with it!  I would just yelp and say Nope...I am not playing with you if you bite Mommy! and then I would turn away and not play with him or leave the room and close the door.  She caught on pretty quick with me but hubby never reprimanded her and now...it's like she looks at him and laughs when he reprimands her!  It's hilarious!  I warned him but he wanted to be her toy and now to her that is exactly what he is!  Let me know how you are making out ok?

I thought of you when the Metoprolol turned out bad; when I first got it, you posted that you didn't think it was used for tremors, or words to that effect.  It definitely shouldn't have been prescribed, because alot of the possible side effects were every-day events for me, and just made matters worse.  Thanks for reading my journal.
