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?"

Happy Valentine's Day

I once met a man who couldn't believe I would lower myself (in his misinformed opinion) to writing romance. I don't recall now how I responded; but why not write romance? What other very personal and at times private human expresion of feeling is given such world wide recognition as love? Love and romance are given not one, but at least three days eachyear to celebrate. Valentine's Day - we all recognize it as a day to show that special someone how we feel about them. Then there are Mother's Day and Father's Day. Think about it for a moment, most enjoying these special days do so from a stem from romance somewhere...boy meets girl, they fall in love and well, you know the rest even if it happened behind closed doors.

So, Cheers to Valentine's Day! and enjoy a pound of cyber chocolate on me (calories not included.)
