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 :)

Good morning,
Have you been officially diagnosed?  I'm waiting - and not doing such a good job of being patient, even though this journey has just started.  Travel is one of my favorite activities and I am fortunte my husband feels the same.  In fact, we have neglected lots of other things we should do - like homeremodeling, and retirement savings - in favor of trips.  We just did state 49 and 50 for my husband last fall.  We love to cruise, but haven't been for a couple years.  And we were just in Belgium in late June, thanks to him winning a trip there courtesy of Delta and Biscoff Cookies.    Of course I did enter his info along with my own.  It was quite the trip.

Be well and write if you get the time,
Laura

I have a clinical diagnosis, just from the symptoms that I have presented with. I think that it is great that you travel. There is nothing like seeing all of the world. My next trip will be to Germany for a visit to family. I am going in December so it will be decorated for Christmas and that will be nice. I want to see all of the United States especially out west. Have you heard of the train trip that you can take that goes to all of the national parks. That would be nice as long as they do not make me wake up at 6am. You read my journal and that was sweet. Thank you. I really feel bad some of the time and there is no one for me to talk to. Some of the feelings are emotional and some are simply physical. I do have the sensivity to heat and the color blindness. I have some trouble walking due to the hip issue but other than that I cannot complain. Please do write again! What did you think of South Carolina? Be honest! HA HA! That is where I call home. I live near the mountains so I think it is relly pretty here. See you later ;)
