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?"

Tickle Tease Tuesday

Sophie dangled her leg over the side of the hammock and pressed her head back against the pillow. A copy of Mystery on the Blue Planet lay open beside her and she mused on its captivating and profound words. It was indeed her favorite of all the fictional books written about the blue planet—and she hoped that at least half of it would turn out to be true. Imagine a new world—different from heaven, but still kind of the same, she thought. She glanced at the rich foliage on either side of the hammock then ran her fingers down the edge of its finely-threaded strands of crystal—woven soft as air and clear as the sky above. A blue light flashed on the event indicator strapped to her upper arm, and she glanced down at it as a message appeared.

ATTN all Freedom Fighters:
Your presence is requested in front of the
Blue Planet Planning Meeting, STAT

Sophie threw her other leg over the side of the hammock and stood up. She closed the book and grabbed her purse. She unsnapped it and peered inside. Ah, there it is. She touched the shimmery material of her guard-screen folded neatly inside a pocket. Hopefully, I won’t need this, she thought as she snapped her purse shut. She slung it over her shoulder then transwilled to the front lawn outside the planning meeting.
