Next?

So, what do you think people who “look like they have cancer” actually look like?  I’ve known a lot of people with cancer … early stages, treatment stages, later stages… In my mind’s eye, I think I can recognize a person with cancer. Most of the people I know who have had cancer were either …

New Treatment, Old News

I did hear from the dermatologist’s office today regarding the visit I made to his office this past week. He had looked at my black toenails and immediately commented: “What did you do to them? Traumatized them?” Of course, he was right, and I told him of the five mile walk the week before the …

Findings

They say as we age, our old memories are more easily retrieved than those of a few moments ago. I have found that to be true, but rather than blaming old age, I attribute it to MS (which seems unfair, as I continue to deny this diagnosis, but I’m human, and flawed.) More than a …

It’s cooler, and drier this week. Temperatures have been staying in the high seventies to low eighties, and the dew point is low. That is a relief to those of us with heat intolerance. Heat intolerance is more than it sounds. It isn’t just that we don’t like the heat, and are just intolerant of …
