Sending The Kids

School is back in session – for most kids I’d imagine. Mine included – at least 2/3rds of them.

After the summer break I thought it’d be a welcome…well…break, but it has been anything but since they’ve gone back.

I will say this, although the early mornings are a clear reminder of on of the reasons why i loathed school soooo very much, at least I get a few hours to accomplish some things I’ve been trying to accomplish since summer break started.

Hopefully as I get more accustomed to the schedule it will indeed be a break that will allow me to get more things around the house accomplished. During the mornings at least. And now that I’m looking at more AM free time, I might try to take a bike ride. Coming from a person who can’t find the time to squeeze in some crunches, It may be more difficult than I had anticipated. let’s hope not.

And oh yeah, I’m starting the feel the need for my tysabri fix ever so slightly. I suppose after almost ten years of this stuff, it is more obvious the need for my medication. Or the signs of it wearing off are much more established so I notice the need for a refil. if i’m putting it right. That’s why I consider it my Tysabri fix. I need it much like, I suppose, a drug addict needs their fix. I’m addicted to my Tysabri treatment…could be worse.

Waiting on Doctor

As I sit here in the doctor’s waiting room, I keep perciverating on something that happened yesterday. But first let me say the physical is a yearly doctors OK that I can indeed continue to receive my Tysabri dosing. Because lawyers…

Anyway, back to what happened yestetday…I went to my parents so that along with my kids spending time with their paternal grandparents I could get a bike ride in at PCT.

The trail was sweet. I was going pretty fast. When I hit the path I wanted to continue that trend. And I vertaonly did. Bested a couple weekender jersey wearing roadies (not that its a competition). I was riding so fast I broke my 10MPH average for trail/path cpmbined. It felt good, except for the puking mid path. That really sucked. It was a vomit comet, as I never stopped riding. Only the hardcore!

EBV, D3, Smoking and Sex

I have have at least 3/4 of those…and MS. Damn it. I probably have Epstien-Barr too, but I can not verify that at this time.

If only I had known in my 20’s that I shouldn’t smoke…oh wait, I did. Stupid me for not listening to myself, society, and science. So stupid on my part. I did give it up though.

Perhaps if I didn’t spend so much time in my basement playing video games I’d have gotten enough D3 (sunlight) to ward off the multiple sclerosis.

And being a dude should’ve helped,. but it didn’t. Just like me to buck the trend. Something I’ve been doing my entire life.

 

And there in lies the problem with MS. One of the many actually. You’ll spend so much time thinking how/why did I get this, what did I do to deserve this? Well, in my case at least, it won’t help to contemplate those things. I have MS. There is no going back to a time when I didn’t have MS (or at least know it). It is impossible as time travel, so I do not think pondering how or why it has happend will be of any benefit. Especially since there is no definitive answer at this time.

Of which I can be sure is that I do have a diagnosed case of Multiple Sclerosis. There is only one thing to do now.

Look forward.

That means a few simple things:

1.) Taking care of myeself

2.) Take my MS medication as prescribed.

3.) Exercise and stretch.

4.) Try to maintain a + attitude.

Don’t bother looking back, it only leads you to a what-if scenario that won’t be at all beneficial to the current scenario.
