Joviality Returns...

Submitted by hdwhit on Thu, 2012-08-09 02:00

I serve as the clerk for the eldership of my church.  It is a position of considerable responsibility but little actual power.  This used to weigh on my mind considerably, but letely as our financial position has deteriorated, I find myself more and more jocular - much the same as I did when I had full-blown M.S. I only did something like 22 flagyl pulses and so I find myself starting to wonder if the disease has returned.  And if so, whether repeating the protocol would be worthwhile as the bugs would now presumably resistant.

On another note, I do go to see my "local" neurologist in three weeks.  I don't intend to rent a tutu (read my blog to get the context) but I do still intend to do a "dance" (or whatever an Engineer, Accountant and Hearings Officer can do that will pass for a dance - the real dancers would probably think I'm having an epileptic seizure) in the doctor's office.

I'll keep you posted on what she says.


hd - I happened to catch both the first and the edited version of one of your very recent posts (the towel reference, for one) and thought how wonderful it was that your particular sense of humor had returned.  I think you're just one of those people who resorts to quirky humor in times of stress.   (Now, if you're touring the country's emergency rooms again, that would be a different issue.) And, no, the bacteria shouldn't be resistant, if you're really serious about that.

hd, if your MS was returning, you would notice more than laughter and that should be inappropriate laughter.  Other things signal a return: more spasticity or clonus for starters.  So here are three entrechats for you to practice: ..........Sarah

A Journey through Light and Shadow

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

You're kidding, right?

When I was in third grade, I drew a picture that had someone with their feet positioned like that and the teacher marked me off saying that it was a physical impossibility. Obviously this guy proves it isn't, but then I figure that it really doesn't matter because odds are that by now Frau Herdy is dead.

Actually, earlier this week, I attended a negotiation session and as my team was leaving, the elevator was taking a long time to reach the floor we were on, so I decided to take the stairs.  It was only a floor-and-a-half, but I still beat them down to the ground floor, so spasticity isn't much of an issue any more.  Typing "becuase" instead of "because" has; however, returned. 



CAP for M.S. 8/2007 - 3/2009.  Twentieth pulse metronidazole + INH completed 3/12/2009.  Intermittent treatment thereafter until 11/20/2009.  

Becuase of you, there's a song in my heart...  Love it,: quirky but not black: yet.  Hw. Have missed you.
