The month of March and half of this one have been a blur. Since my last post, I've had three unexpected ER visits, a trip to the pulmonologist, an EGD, and two CT scans. Sigh...I do love modern medicine, but this is a bit ridiculous. I joked with one of the ER nurses that they need a frequent flyer program, or a room with my name over the door!
Having secondary progressive multiple sclerosis is bad enough. Those who battle MS battle a disease as individual as snowflakes.There is no set cure or treatment. Each is different and geared to that person's needs.
In my case, I also have an un-named secondary autoimmune disorder that exacerbates the MS. So, when I have certain symptoms, I don't know if they are phantom, random, or real...hence the ER trips.
This brings me to the next topic...finding a cause and cure for MS. Researchers are so close to unraveling this disease, but it takes money. This weekend I am participating in the local WALK MS event. I will do the lesser of the two routes, and I will start out and finish walking...but, more likely than not, will be pushed awhile in the wheel chair.
We need to find a cause and cure. I may not see it in my lifetime, but I will do all I can to help figure this out. Please consider a monetary donation--no amount is too small--to the National MS Society for research. I've made it easy. You can go to my page (click the link at the end of this post), find out about the walk and my journey, and donate. Thanking you in advance for your generosity and helping me meet my goal.
