Been awhile

It's been awhile since I blogged, but life has a way of throwing you curve ball's and making other issues in your life the priority. The last 6 months of 2010 my dad was pretty ill. I spent  a considerable amount of time there during the end of the year.

Then of course, I had an MS flare up in the midst of it all, then I'm still fighting my chronic back pain and jumping through way to many hoops to get it fixed.


I hope you all have spent the last six months in better physical health than I have. I underwent a round of IV steroids as well as steroid eye drops for another round of otic neuritis. Just when I though I had the chair beat, back into I was. (I'm back up to using the walker, but it's iffy most days).

I rarely have a day that I don't have the consious thoughts of MS running through my head. I remember when the symptoms of MS, for me, were so mild that after my daily shot, MS was an after thought. I hope I see those days again!
