I began daily injections of Copaxone in June of 2005. Although I seem to have permanent symptoms from my last exacerbation, my last MRI revealed no new lesions and no new scarring.

To soften rocks,

Little known tidbit about Friday: I paid $600 for my very first computer in 1996. It was built to spec for one reason ... so I could play Diablo. I became addicted to the music of Tristram Village. To me, it's musical valium.
I am loved!
A thoughtful token
that changes often
from my sweet friend,
Candy @ Daily Thoughts previous tokens
From precious Smallstar ...
From my dollface, Melly Girl
And I love!

If time and health allow, I'm willing to make custom group hugs. Request on taggie. Specify colors & names. Group hug without names is fine ... whatever. Two to four huggers.

I don't have interent access here except by way of "my" wireless" router still connected at Mr. Man's place. Sometimes the signal quality is excellent and sometimes poor or the ever mysterious "limited". Day before yesterday I tried to edit my blog and then lost connection which totally . . . (More)

My visit with the doctor was interesting. Upon being checked in by the nurse (one I had never met before), she began to ask me the usual questions. Then came a question I wasn't prepared for -- one that totally unnerved me. NURSE: Are you in a living situation that could cause you pain or ha . . . (More)

The rule of thumb for changing the clocks for Daylight Saving Time is "Spring forward, Fall back." Well, I'm a rebel. I decided to fall forward. Yesterday, I was walking to Meecie's car, I was by the front bumper and suddenly I was flying off the curb. When I landed, I was o . . . (More)

I found out yesterday that Mr. Man offered The Pisspup to his daughter. She dropped by yesterday to visit for a while. When I left the room, she told her father that she was going to accept the offer and take the pup. Mr. Man told her she could take him in about a week. Very . . . (More)

Maybe I should have known, but I just didn't realize ... maybe I never even really thought about it. Once upon a time, when Mr. Man was coming home drunk, he was verbally abusive. Sometimes he'd even raise a hand to me but it never progressed to physical violence. [I know -- abus . . . (More)

Saturday, Meecie and I went to the Westwego outdoor fresh seafood market. I bought five pounds of beautiful, fresh, firm shrimp and at the bargain price of $3.50 per pound. One can barely even buy ground meat for that in these parts. Yesterday, Mr. Man decided to be extra-super ni . . . (More)

No news here. Nothing has changed. There's lots of tension but no new trauma or drama. I'm OK. Pisspup is okay and maybe finally learning that outside is where he's supposed to do his business. I've been doing my best to be productive. Not online much. Created a . . . (More)

A short story, by Friday's Child: Like a little boy who just got caught running in the house, a broken vase at his feet, this remorseful man stood before me -- his hands bloodied from the shards of my shattered heart and said, "I didn't do it ... it was already broken." His eyes fix . . . (More)

Until I received several emails from friends expressing worry for my safety, I didn't stop to think about how alarming news of my situation sounds. My intent is not to alarm or worry anyone -- or to garner anything. My intent is only to record what's going on with me. I apologize for not . . . (More)

He came home drunk last night. He's a mean and angry man when he's drunk. Or maybe he's just an angry, mean man and drinking exacerbates those "qualities". Either way, last night was terrifying. I protected the pup which made him focus on me. I came out unscathed but de . . . (More)
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR TAG. I try to acknowledge everyone, but sometimes the challenge that MS presents doesn't afford me the energy. If you find that I've overlooked your tag, please blame my fatigued and addled brain and not my <3.
