I've been scarce recently for several reasons... things such as "the end of the school year," a dear friend lost her husband last Saturday, the shift to summer hours at work (four 10-hr workdays/week), and mostly because I've been resting and sleeping... a lot.
The tingling in my hand and arm... well, I finally faced the fact that what was going on was that my multiple sclerosis is active. I didn't want to admit it because it's been at least ten years since the last major episode.... with care, I've been able to manage generally.... but not this time.
No worries... it's been 22 years since the initial diagnosis. I can still walk unaided... tho I am a bit unsteady on my feet at times. My hands and arms may be tingling but I can still use them. My head is clear and my memory is no more impaired than what would be expected at my advanced age. In addition, being "older and wiser" means I don't try to power through an episode. I am taking care of myself and I will be alright in time.
I would take it kindly that the next time you hear about a fund raiser for MS, drop a quarter in the box.... donate a dollar... hopefully, some day there will be a cure...
