yea, i'm on iv steroids every day til Fri, & i'll be doing that once a month now....







...not exactly the best news in the world about how the ms is going now, but, I gotta figure that I've been putting up with this shit since 1994, and now my neurologist is saying it's secondary progressive...with everything that's happened in my life since March 2007, what else could happen??
Yesterday after Kev's mom & dad brought me home from getting steroids, I went in to bed to start reading the book I got "Addict Nation" by Jane Velez Mitchell...so, see? I'm not a narrow-minded jerk that only follows Fox News...I get all the news I can, & sift through it to try to find any kind of truth...not easy, cuz I think you have to prove that you can lie to go to Washington DC...

ANY-way...About 3:45, Tiff & Talan showed up...with ice cream from the Jer-Zee, which just opened yesterday (!), & a big strawberry milkshake for me! I have the best daughter, did I ever tell you that?? Somebody raised her right...with the best grandson. I met his temper for the first time at about 4:30...!
...when the ice cream from his little cup was all gone...mind you, Talan never had ice cream before, but once he did...I im'd Kev last night & told him it's almost like Tif got my grandson hooked on crack, for heaven's sake! When she showed him the empty cup, and told him it was all gone, holee shit!! The boy's lungs exploded, his head did a couple 360's, he puked pea soup, tried to head butt Tif when she hugged him...I told Kev abt that, & he said, well thats something else he got from grandma...I'd never try to take ice cream from you...:-/
But eventually, he got over it, & we watched "Ellen", he LOVES that show!! :-D
I got 'friended' on FB last week by a girl I knew in the 80's in Fostoria...we weren't close friends, but got along...holy crap, who DIDNT I get along with? If we were in the same bar, & drinking, we got along! I'm not an uptight person, probably TOO easygoing, but...anyway, she emld me & asked whats up, I told her about my grandson, & about Tif & her husband, & at the end I told her about how I have ms & can't walk, but that's only a small part of my life. She wrote back & said she was sorry, & I was always a strong person & a fighter. Wow...she has a picture of herself & her 10 yr old daughter, and, OMG, they look like twins!! Quite obviously, she was, well is, a lot younger than me!

Okay...it's gettin' late, & I wanna go to bed with my leftover pizza, & Tif's leftover cup of ice cream she left me in my bedroom freezer! And that book...which talks about how everybody in America is addicted to something now; spending money, eating, sex, video games, drinking, drugs...I kinda have to agree with her
BoUnCeS!! LibbY!

Being addicted to ice cream is not a bad option.

SJ said...

And I have to confess to at times reacting like Talan when it comes to ice cream!

Meg said...

I fully support ice cream addictions! Sorry about the steroids but at least you're surronded by people you love.

Libby said...

...sj, hahahaha...being addicted to ice cream is okay...except that a whole helluva lot of ice cream'ers also tend to be morbidly obese...

meg...i LOVE being on steroids! i think i'm the only ms'r that does...(hey...maybe THAT'S my addiction! but it is a medicine that helps for a while!)

Seventeen years, huh. I guess you can't escape it, although I wish you could.

Ice cream can not lead to addiction any more than vegetables. I consider it the fifth major food group.

Did you guys, back in the day, have an Isley's?

Libby said...

x, sure, we were lucky enough to have an isaly's ice cream parlor right around the corner from where i grew up! LOVED THAT PLACE!
And whats with the 4 inches of snow we're getting now??

X. Dell said...

I don't think we're getting that much in southern Ohio, but it is snowing right now.

Well I hope the treatment keeps everything in check for you Libby.

I am so sick of all the news channels here. they are unwatchable. I go to the BBC but even they piss me off sometimes. I guess I'll go watch Al Jazeera. LOL!! Would you believe that when I worked at my old job that network had some of the nicest people to deal with. Strange world Libby.
