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?"

Finding the miracle that I am so thankful for

Please note: My year is condensed to make it more readable. I will forever be thankful for the dear friend that dared to share this information with us.
I find the cognitive function to thank him (my hubby) for his assistance in the yard, the kitchen and now to bed. I refuse to let him help me in the bathroom, hoping to save a smidgeon of romantic dignity. He tucks me into bed.
"Sweetheart." Hubby dares to have a logical conversation with an illogical MS-er. "You've heard me mention Oliver at work."
Nice one. I don't know Oliver though he's been mentioned often so I can't verbally attack the man. "Yeah."
"He's got an aunt who has gone through this protocol a while back and he says she's doing really well. He says he would be willing to share some reading material if you're interested. Remember how he mentioned a Dr. Huggins or Higgins or something like that?"
I nod noncommittally. I've heard about every outlandish, farfetched cure for MS that has ever been thought of, including bee stings, absurd diets, lightning, and scorpion stings just to name a few. Most things have no science behind them.
Harrison showers this latest cure with cautious accolades. This is something he never does. Two days later he hands me a thin booklet.
"This is where we start. I read most of it over my lunch hour and it makes sense. You should read it."
I cautiously acquiesce and agree with Harrison's conclusion. The next step is to become better informed. I purchase the doctor's book and read it, including all the reference material he uses, at least what I can get my hands on and almost as quickly forget most of the information except the distinct feeling that the protocol to have the metal, especially the mercury amalgams and root canals, removed from my mouth will benefit me personally. The next step is finding a qualified specialist and scrapping our pennies together. It will require over $4,000.00 as the insurance companies consider the protocol experimental or "cosmetic". As if being able to walk and stand without losing one's balance is purely cosmetic.
