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?"

Valentines Day

With Valentines Day just around the corner you can't help but get bombarded with hearts full of chocolates and cute furry snugglies if you step into a store these days. Even the grocer has his share of suggested items to show that special someone that you love them. I caught a glimpse of a lady buying not a dozen but three dozen or more small red hearts full of chocolates and wondered if she bought for every one of her grandchildren (lucky woman) or a classroom of wonderful children (which of course would include at least one less favorite child --the trouble making cutie!) Whatever her list or whomever the receivers she got me thinking. Wondering really, How do I intend to show those I love, my affection for them? How do you?
