As a Multiple Sclerosis patient, it has become necessary for me to reinvent myself. I have ... and continue to ... refuse to lie down and die, or in this case, follow the normally prescribed drugs and treatments that do nothing to defeat my disease. I am not only surviving by pursuing alternatives, I am thriving. I do the things specialists told me I would never be able to do. I walk and hope to one day even run regularly. I retain my cognitive and creative abilities for the pleasure of my readers. Although you may never see me on my daily walk, you are welcome to read my novel(s) and in doing so, come to ask yourself, "How can the 'out of the box' protocol she has followed, help my loved one with an autoimmune disease like Multiple Sclerosis?"


ABCD's to doctoring a bee sting on the underside of an ultra-sensitive middle toe.

A- Amputate toe (being sure to severe nerve bundle. Mark each nerve different color.)
B- Be sure #%*%# bee is DEAD.
(This part doesn't get its own letter.)- Remove bee stinger while toe is unconscious and unable to squirm away from you. Plaster with Denver Mud or the modern version, baking soda paste. Wrap toe with roll of gauze and anchor with surgical tape.
C- Connect nerve endings to appropriate nerve of corresponding color and stitch toe in place making sure to double check surgical knots.
D- Done.

Sound over zealous or even difficult?
Try doctoring your own toe when you step on the dang bee.

Mid-year's resolution--wear shoes, or at least sandals.

Next day check-up.
The toe did survive. The bee was carried away by ants or maybe a slug. Bedding needs washing after gauze, tape and baking soda were found playing between the sheets.
--Knotty, knotty--
