MS Anger

MS Anger

    Anger.  The force within.  What is it?  Where does it come from?  Why does it exist? I’ve had multiple sclerosis pert near 23 years now and still my anger can boil over like noodles on a stove. I might not have the energy to lift my dead foot over a two-inch threshold, yet …

What’s In A Name

What’s In A Name

  A product’s name is everything. It can fuel its success or drown its failure. That’s why companies spend oodles of money on research and product development to get a name juuuuust right. They gather focus groups.  They  nudge & nitpick for impressions, thoughts & motivations.  They pour over test market results to learn what …

Just Zip It

Just Zip It

  Just zip the bag closed. Hmm, easier said than done, right? Whether you have MS fumble-fingers or the dexterity of a Vegas blackjack dealer, the recloseable Ziploc bag has frustrated many.

MS Mug Shots

  Personalized coffee mugs are everywhere. Who doesn’t have a coffee mug shoved in the back of the cabinet emblazoned with some photo, witty quote or the logo of a company that closed in 1979. I have a dozen and I don’t even drink coffee! That being said, multiple sclerosis needs a mug or two …

Socknac the Magnificent

Socknac the Magnificent

  Johnny Carson will forever be my comedy idol. Delivery so smooth.  Wit razor sharp.  Often he was at his funniest when the joke was a dud (which was a rarity). As a kid I struggled to stay up (with permission) to watch him non-school nights.  As an adult I struggled to stay up because, …

Grocery Goofs

Grocery Goofs

    It has the title “Grocery Goofs” because this post is nothing more than me rolling through a grocery store poking fun at items on the shelf. And that is WAY shorter than calling it “Me Rolling Through a Grocery Store Poking Fun at Items on The Shelf.” Grab a cart and let’s go …

Good Stuff In–Good Stuff Out

Good Stuff In–Good Stuff Out

  I may get somewhat preachy here–so beware.   Every single one of us looks for the magic pill…the infusion-palooza…the divine answer to slaying the MS monster.  We know a cure doesn’t exist yet we search anyway.  (No harm in looking, right?) Because MS has a mind all its own, best you can do is …

Well-Worn

  I added this shirt to our charity pile today. But for an embarrassing reason. Oh it is in good shape.  No rips.  No holes. It fits well.  Not too big.  Not too small. And it looks good whether dressed up or casual. I like it. So why give the shirt to charity if everything …
