Musings of a Prodigal Daughter

This has NOTHING to do with MS, and everything to do with everything else in my life… (more…)

50 Shades of Apnea

What exactly does it mean when someone says, “you have a mild apnea”? I mean, seriously, you either have apnea or you don’t. Much in the same way that you’re either horny or you’re not. Yes, yes, I know. It is all relative to the degree to which you have apnea or are horny. (more…)

The Resolution Revolt of ‘16

Celebrating Life’s Challenges

One year ago today I got my MS diagnosis. The news sucks as badly today as it did then, but I’m still here, as attitude-y as ever, celebrating the challenges that life throws my way. No, I haven’t suddenly developed a masochistic streak. It’s just that I have chosen to focus on what I CAN do rather than what I can’t.

For example—and this is an example of what makes me, me—a co-worker asked me if I could drink. I told him that I hadn’t asked. If I ask, there’s a 50-50 chance that I’ll be told that I can’t. I don’t drink that much or often at all anyway. I can share a bottle of wine or drink 4 lemon drops, but that’s about it for me. So why myself up to be told no?

Besides, my doctor said that I have no dietary restrictions. Add to that the fact that I have to take daily shots (today’s hurt like a bitch!). I’m gonna keep on keeping on until I am told that I can’t.

I am not done yet.
