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.

Back to Seattle....

With all my trips to Seattle over the past year I am starting to think I should invest in a second home there, lol. Okay, not really. I am headed back to Seattle in the morning however, and I am hopeful that it will be a very productive visit.

First off I have a doctor's appointment. I have a new specialist to add to my very long list of medical providers. I am seeing an Endocrinologist and I am hopeful that he will be able to help me sort some things out. It will be nice to have someone managing the NASH again and hopefully he will also have some ideas as to how to help jump start the old metabolism. I have been wondering if there is something else I could possibly be doing. I have a wonderful team of doctors, a nutrition specialist, and have even worked with personal trainers....still no luck. Not to mention I am overdue to have my thyroid looked at. My appointment is at 10:40, which means I will be leaving home bright and early....about 6am in order to allow for plenty of time to get there.

Next I have an appointment up at Pikes Place Market...which should not take long. Then I will be heading over to the NMSS offices where I will be picking up stuff for the MS Walk, Dinner for Two program in Sunnyside, and Men's Poker Night in Richland. My main purpose for being there however is to work on the Women's Wellness Retreat. I have really enjoyed being a part of the planning committee for this retreat and think that a lot of women will benefit because of it. If nothing else it should be a nice weekend where we can all come together, hear from some wonderful speakers, and have time to relax.

I hope that each of you have an equally productive Friday and a wonderful start to the weekend. Take care!

What's a Endocrinologist?

I'm not too lazy to look it up, that's my excuse for making conversation.

I've been neglecting my MS site for some time now. Come to think of it, I've been neglecting my MS... :S

Hope everything is well with you. I seem to have forgotten I have a disease. This is going to be trouble.

My name is Jenny and I am part of an online community called CarePlace, for people experiencing similar health related issues and their caregivers, including MS. We have recently added new MS related communities to the site.
As your blog relates to what we are doing at CarePlace, I was wondering if you might be willing to check out our site and let me know if you think it might be helpful to the people who communicate through and with you. People can join multiple communities, share experiences, check out info on medical conditions and treatments and form their own groups within the site.
We have gotten great feedback and as you know the more people in various communities the more outreach and support that happens. Our users have really liked it so far and we are adding new features all the time based on what everyone is telling us.
It’s really important to us to get feedback from people like you about the site as we develop features – the site is You can add me as a friend (jend) and let me know what you think.
Thanks in advance!
