Doctors, doctors and more doctors

Doctors, doctors and more doctors

I’ll start this with the doctor for my shoulder tendonitis. I went to see him yesterday. Still flying high from my amazing weekend at my spirit junkie master class, I think I even put the doctor in a good mood.  Being that my case is slightly different from other tendonitis cases, I can’t ever rest the arm because I use it with the walker, he was able to give me a Cortizone shot early. He was actually singing as he injected…

I have multiple sclerosis and I’m ok.

I have had multiple sclerosis for 18 years. It was Valentines Day 1998 when my symptoms started. Three days later I couldn’t really walk. First I saw an orthopedist he took one look at me and sent me to a neurologist. When he told me that it was probably MS. I cried. I cried because I really didn’t know what the hell MS was or what that was going to mean to my life. So here I am 18+ years…
