I’m actually blogging as we get to cruising altitude on my way to visit my family. Interesting thing this modern technology. Means we can run, but we can’t hide.
I’m actually feeling pretty good today. Tired from getting up at 3 a.m., but other than that no extreme fatigue today. Of course the travel isn’t over yet. However, I was lucky that my connecting flights weren’t far apart so walking wasn’t too difficult. Letting the airlines know in advance I’m deaf helps a lot as well.
I have to admit, I’m always apprehensive when I travel alone. As if being deaf wasn’t enough, throw MS in an one never knows what to expect on any give day, let alone a travel day. I never know how my body is going to react to the stress. Even if it’s GOOD stress, it’s still stress.
I made an appointment with my Neurologist when I get back to talk to him about the new oral MS drug. I’m already on Imuran so I’m familiar with the side effects of taking an immunosuppressent, I’m convinced it was going on the Imuran that beat my MS back into submission earlier this year. It’s my understanding that with the new oral med I wouldn’t have to take injections anymore. Wouldn’t that be awesome! A pill a day to keep the MS symptoms away. What a great stride forward for us MSers. Makes me hopeful that we WILL see a cure someday.
