I started my blog pretty unceremoniously three years ago. I'm up to three followers! If I ever get up-to-date, I'm thinking I should go public. I'm boring enough that anyone who runs across it will probably keep going rather than stay, but it could be interesting. And I would be able to search my blog if it were published. Decisions.
I started my blog as another attempt to keep a journal, a recommendation by Matthew Taylor. I was seeing him because of terrible pain issues that seemed super random. I don’t want to live a mediocre life...It's draining. He helped me cope with the pain and deal with some of my back issues.
Seven years ago, this month, I was numb from the ribcage down to my toes. I saw a neurologist recommended by my friend. I bypassed going to a doctor because I thought that I had done something to my back--the last time I had numbness was after my second back surgery. (The back surgeries were due to a car accident that left me with a fractured spine.) The neurologist immediately suspected MS, and said a few tests would be done to rule out other issues. As we all know, every possibility was ruled out and I have MS. I remember this month every year. My husband's brother got married in Las Vegas at the Venetian. I stood up for his wife. She paid for us to have our hair and makeup done and I looked stunning. No one could tell that something was wrong with me. I was numb. You can't see numbness.
