Oh My Goodness

Dec 25, 2008 - 0 comments

I have had another episode and it was a doosie! The right side of my face went totally numb. I realize how serious this type of episode is and this has scarred the **** out of me. I feally felt as though my life was slipping out of control at the time of the episode so I am sure that stress had something to do with it. My husband has been through it this year with me. I have been sick alot and I guess that the MS lord was not finished and saw that it would be good for me to have a slap across the face (which then went numb).

A Little About Myself

Aug 16, 2008 - 2 comments

This is a normal night and I am up at 4:00am due to leg pain. I will get up just as evryone else and go through the motions of a normal life in the morning. I will try to seem as though nothing is wrong and let everyone think that all is well. There is really nothing to tell. I have a normal life other than the MS. I dearly love my husband and all of my animals, friends and family. I really love the job that I do which I think helps others.
   I have not had the best results with doctors. The first neuroligist that I had was a drug addict which I found out later due to a life threatening overdose of meds (Solumedrol). This has caused the degeneration of some of my bones and that can be painful. I have already had a shoulder replacement at the age of 34 and I am sure that a hip replacement is not too far in the future. I am not bitter but that I something  that I will have to deal with for the rest of my life, but then again doesn't everyone have something?
   I love to travel and I have been fortunate enough to be able to go to many places in the world. I think that I sometimes travel to see everything that I can before I am unable to any longer. I am hoping that this will be a good resource for me to meet others who go through the same things that I do and to be able to have normal conversation without the sympathy of the other person.
   I hope that someone will read this and want to ask me some questions or invite me on a chat. I have never done this before and I am not sure how all of this chat stuff works, so be patient with me :)
