Patience! Please!

This post is going to take awhile.

I am mulling over my response to an article in today's (4/14/2015) Pittsburgh Post Gazette about a newer and riskier MS drug therapy.

Read the article here: New-MS-drug-shows-promise-for-those-with-aggressive-disease/

Oh, I'm going to have A LOT to say about this one!

Stay tuned!

I'm at a bit of a crossroads.  Feeling fantastic EXCEPT I am having piriformis issues that are limiting my ability to move.  I am self diagnosing here, but I believe that my gait abnormalities have led to a somewhat ongoing piriformis issue that puts pressure on the nerve and causes PAIN.  Aargh.  As if the underlying nerve issues aren't enough - now add a dose of real pain.

Anyone else deal with these sideshoots of MS.  They aren't the core problem, but they result from the issues of MS.

Rehab ideas, anyone?

I'm back to walking about 1.5 miles (with a little jogging tossed in because I just can't resist).

Would love to hear your ideas!!

Spring has Sprung

The blog is NOT dead!  Just a bit behind...

I have been on a wonderful, revitalizing trip filled with fun, great weather, family, friends, activity, and music!  As a friend noted: recreation = re-creation!

Getting away is good for body, mind and soul.  It provides time for reflection and gets me out of the routines and ruts that can lead to long-term harmful habits.  For me, it's a chance to hit the GiAnT ReSeT button and start afresh.

Time to get back to work:  on everything!
