Yesterday I went to the Dr. by myself for the first time in 3 years. My Dr said, Im currently having an exacerbation, it is my fall visit. I usually get one in Spring, another in Autumn. She asked if I wanted to have IVSM or Oral steroids. I opted for oral steroids this time. I know what a difficult time she had in May for me to get treatment at home, and I know how much easier it is to get the pills. It is a MUCH lighter treatment, here’s a comparison – if my dr. were to give me the amount of pills to equal IVSM it would be 125 pills over a 5 day period. I’ll be having 43 over 10 days or so. I pray it will give me some relief. I have so much spasticity, my body feels like hmmm…
I’m not especially enjoying my current 31 day challenge. I find it very difficult to find the motivation to share these things that I love. It doesn’t seem, fair to them. Last year, I really enjoyed the challenge. I met some wonderful new people. I learned about me. It was lovely. This year… it feels commercialized. I’m Determined to finish, I think I’ll just adjust the posts.
Next month is NaNoWriMo. I used to love to go to Second Life and join up with the virtual community of authors there. I went to their seminars, heard authors speak, and read their books. I had a little writing studio for the month. It was as fun as anything virtual can be. My SL days are behind me, but I’m considering NaNo this year. I am an awful fiction writer, but I have thousands of words to organize for a non fiction book. I wonder if that is something I can do next month.
