  If you didn’t know, I’m a fairly avid reader. Books, newspapers, magazines, catalogs, pamphlets, cereal boxes, even phone books. Honestly if it has something of interest, I’ll read it. Reading is knowledge, right?   So just last week I found myself immersed in the Winter edition of MS Focus Magazine. MS Focus is the …

Go With It

Go With It

    You can’t make a pie if you don’t have the filling. Okay, how does that relate to multiple sclerosis, you ask? It’s a fatigue issue really.  If you don’t have the energy inside, not much is getting done out. Fatigue hits me hardest on warmer days.  Feels like I have concrete in my …

MS Pie Charts

MS Pie Charts

    I love pie charts.  And I love pie.  Though not necessarily in that order. Pie charts are a fantastic way to present useful information. Or in this case, nonsensical info relating to our beloved multiple sclerosis. Take a peek at these pie charts and maybe you will come away with a smile. Enjoy… …

The F-Word

The F-Word

  The f-word. It’s offensive. Obscene. Vulgar. Who knew when you were knighted with the dubious distinction of having multiple sclerosis, the f-word would become a prominent part of your vocabulary. Everything seemingly revolves around the f-word. Er, wait.  Before I go any further, let’s be sure we are on the same page.   The …

What Gives?

What Gives?

    What Gives? That’s what I wanna know. One would think with over 20 years of experience, a person might know something. After twenty years of marriage, you are pretty familiar with your partner. Twenty years on the job?  It’s safe to say you know your way around the shop.   But after twenty …

Do You Prep?

Do You Prep?

      There is a big day looming on my MS horizon. Appointments. Not one.  Not two.  But three appointments in a single day.   A trifecta of care at the Mellen Center of the Cleveland Clinic.         I’ll begin with a morning session of Botox injections in my legs to …

Sock It To Me

Sock It To Me

    Tend to think I can handle myself around a gym.   Heck, I’ve been working out since I was 16. And although MS has slowed me down a bit, I still manage to exercise five or six times a week in the privacy of my basement.   So when I’m out of town …

MS Bingo

Or Maybe

Or Maybe

Please enjoy this re-do of an older My Odd Sock while I take a breather.  Best wishes.     Quite possibly, the most over-used phrase of this MSer is “Or maybe.”   (“Quite possibly” ranks a close second!)   “Or maybe” comes in handy as I try to assess how I am feeling (good or …
