an actual screenshot of drugstore.com’s REALLY HELPFUL (ha) guide to multiple sclerosis. Helpful if you wanted to only know one thing.
Post injection today, my mother and I were perusing some catalogs sent over by the MS foundation… and wow what a downer. All sorts of products for people that seem to make their lives more miserable! Well, okay, probably not really, but geez they look depressing.
So we were thinking we’d order some of these products and make a video of us ridiculing them whilst singing a broadway-esque song en masse with my whole family. Not really, too much time and effort and hurting peoples’ feelings, but we did start doing the song….
I’ve got a biiiiiig lesion
It’s messing wiiiiith my vision
It’s causing meeeee confusion
Am I winning or losing?
More to come I’m sure. And possibly a video if we’re ever really bored.

I try to think positive, I really do! My brother doesn’t believe me, he tells me I’m negative and cynical.
And I said maybe he’d be negative and cynical too if there was something eating his brain, so maybe I’m not really so positive as I hope.
I’ve been thinking a lot about this cat lately
Continuing on, I’ve been thinking a lot about the cat. Last year I spent a very long time (sigh) chasing around that cat in a graveyard in Paris just to get the perfect picture (possibly achieved up there).
Today I spent a beautiful summer day in the ER, which basically concluded in them giving me a very high dose of advil and saying sometimes people with MS just have pain.
Here comes the return of the list:
Facts of today:
1. I don’t want to be a person with MS
2. I don’t want to just have pain
3. I had decided that my choices for the day were to go to the gym or to go to the ER and find out why I was having severe chest pains, and I should have really chosen the gym
4. Today I am not an optimist
And so I wonder if there will be more days chasing an orange cat around a rainy cemetery in Paris, just to get that one perfect picture. Probably, because I’m not in a wheelchair, and my condition isn’t that bad, but some days it just doesn’t seem like it.
Sorry, that was a long rant. See ya, everybody
