This is MY journey with MS! I give you my thoughts, feelings, hopes, and prayers. My wish that one day this disease will come to an end. That one day there will be a cure. For now, I hold on to possibility. I HOPE this will help and inspire not only myself but others.

A Good Day....MS News & more

Today was a pretty good day. I did not have a lot planned at the beginning of the day. No appointments scheduled, only a few things needed to be done around the house, and for the most part just planned to spent the afternoon with my son.

I got a call from the hospital and they had a cancellation, so I got in for my DEXA scan early! One more test out of the way, check. I made the decision that since I am starting to swim and go to the gym on a regular basis so that I can regain some of my energy (that is the hope at least), I am also going to do what I can to try and make any changes necessary to my diet. I eat pretty good now, but I am sure I can always do better. I made an appointment to see a nutrition specialist on Tuesday to go over my current diet to see what else I can do to ensure I am keeping up my health the best I can.

I was able to spend some quality time with my son, which is always great! My sister is over to stay the night. It is her birthday tomorrow and so we have rented a few movies. We will do lunch at my parents tomorrow before she has to go back home. It is nice to have some time to visit with her. Over all it has been a nice and productive (but not over doing it) day.

I hope you are all well and have had a good Friday. I wish you well. Please take care and have a great weekend.

Here are a couple of articles that were published today in Medical News Today.

  • MS Drug Advances
  • Marijuana For Medical Use Turned Down By The FDA

  • I would be interested in hearing what others think about the use of marijuana for pain management with MS. I know that it has been considered controversial and so I would be interested in hearing the arguments. Please tell me your thoughts! I know in some other countries this is already approved, and even in my own state (Washington) a small amount was legal for medical purposes (I am not sure what this does to that). I believe in following the law, and personally do not smoke, however, I have heard of many people who claim this has helped them drastically. If this is the case, then I don't see why it would not be acceptable (with the exception that the article shows it is not good for our health, and there are possible moral problems depending on your beliefs). If it is shown to help in small doses, that is another thing, isn't it? Please leave me your comments.

    Great Jazz for when YOU need a bit of Relaxation......
