How I’m FINALLY Getting Rid of Spasticity

One thing I wasn’t clear about is how damn tight and stiff my arm has been. I don’t have any before photos or videos, so you’ll just have to take my word for it. When I went to hand therapy back in 2018, my PT would kindly provide 10 minutes of heat before gently stretching…

30 Years

How ironic that today, on my thirtieth wedding anniversary, I just finished reading, Heather Havrilesky’s New York Times article, Marriage Requires Amnesia: Do I hate my husband? Oh for sure, yes, definitely. I’m happy to say that after three decades, I don’t hate my husband. I fell in love with a handsome, hard-working, good man…

Has He Finally Hit Rock Bottom?

Are we there yet? I personally thought our Asshole in Chief hit bottom the day he announced his candidacy back in 2015. Perhaps his bottom is coming since he’s officially 2 degrees of separation from the Coronavirus.  I sure hope the dude that placed the American flag on the stage isn’t the infected person that…

Pick Your Side

I think all the ladies in this photo look fabulous. But in my mind the selfie ladies on the right are talking about angles, lighting, and product placement.

Learning How To Walk Again With My Dynamic Bracing Solution (DBS)

In January 2017 I received my DBS. Pre-Brace Information: I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in September of 2009. With the exception of weakness on extremely hot days, I had no symptoms or issues until the spring of 2012. For the next two years my left sided weakness was minimal and something I could hide…

Day 34: Success #3

I can stand on my left foot for two seconds! This is huge because it means that the outside edge of my foot is tensing up again which keeps me from falling. Well, for 2 seconds and then I grab onto something so I wont fall.  But still, two whole seconds! For the past two years…

Day 30: Failing to Market Myself

If you ever see me living under a bridge its because I was forced to make a living by marketing myself. Honestly I’d rather shovel shit on a 100 degree day than tell someone why they should buy something I made or use a service I provide. I’m like the Anti-Donald Trump. A person with…

Day 2: Failing at Facebook

I’m  a liar. Not a Donald-Trump-Say-Stupid-Outrageous-Shit type of liar.  More like a Hilary-(Or Bill take your pick)-Clinton-Lie-By-Omission type of liar. If I was The Donald, I’d publish post after post telling everyone how fabulously healthy I am. Instead, I just hide my cane in photos and stay mum on all the details surrounding my MS….
