Ahhhh! I thought there was no waste pick up today because of Easter weekend. This morning, the garbage trucks woke me up. Looks like I'm stuck with a huge bag of smelly stuff, an overflowing green bin, and tons of recycling. I'm sure the Raccoons are rubbing their little paws together at the thought of it.
Easter Sunday started off nicely. Another day of sunshine and mild temperatures . I managed to make a serious dent in the garden clean up. Still lots to do, but considering it's only the beginning of April I'm way ahead.
Then in the early evening I had the attack of the relatives. Somehow we got started talking about MS and it went downhill from there. Funny, when I was diagnosed they never even knew what MS was (just like me) and now they seem to know all sorts of people with it. Those people are fighting their MS, those people take injections, those people listen to their doctors, those people are just so darn good. Translation? I am not a good MS person because I don't do any of those things.
They don't come right out and say it. They imply it, by always finding these shining paragons of MS. Yet when I challenge them, it is very clear they know very little about these goody goodies .(Yeah, like maybe those injections don't work?)
Listen up!! Yes, I think that the theory of CSSVI as put forward by Dr. Zamboni is correct. No, I'm not going to take injections EVER!! I'm also not going to take all the other prescription slop the doctors offer AND I'm not going to waste my time with any more tests, doctors appointments, and alternate therapies. The chiropractor and the naturopath can't do squat for my MS.
How do I deal with my MS? I get up every day, take my vitamins and get on with my life. If I have a headache I take some Advil. I use THC vapour to help me relax and sleep. I walk and swim for exercise when I can and if I can't, I don't. If I don't feel good I take a sick day. See? Life is so simple.
Do I ask you for anything? Do you ever hear me whine or even bring up the subject of MS, except for the time I told you I had it ? When I fall apart, which I will evetually do, I will figure it out.
So get off my back. I refuse to be the good little MS girl for you.
