Dear Multiple Sclerosis,
Thanks for not totally sucking this weekend. Although, the spreading news of your body invasion resulted in several head tilt, arm squeezes of pity on Saturday night, they were almost canceled out with the "But You Look So Good" compliments and the leering looks of men who were unavailable and did not interest me in the least. Hey! I'm shallow; what can I say?
With gratitude,
Lazy Julie


  1. Julie, I have given you a reward for your blogging expertise and ..., oh, just come on over and pick it up. Sorry if I forgot to let you know about it. I have MS memory problems, of the short-term kind- big time. Makes blogging fun - and sometimes repetitive. Smiles.

  2. LOL! I love the "balanced scorecard" approach to assessing how a weekend went. I bet you are glad to see so many grades above a "C"!

  3. Hi Julie,
    You sound much too young to be struck by any disease but this is the time of the full emergence of the autoimmune phenomina. I had RA and cancer so I have some experience with disease. Autoimmune diseases have recently reached epidemic numbers of 1 in 4 people will have an autoimmune disease, this is a health disaster. We need to step aside and have a clear look at where we are being taken, there are other choices. The world of health is not one dimensional as modern medicine would like you the think it is. Autoimmune diseases are both perplexing and mysterious to say the least; there are approximately 80 to 100 with another 40 waiting for a name and if you get one you will get another and so on. Medical science who has not cured a disease in 60 years, cannot explain why we have this autoimmune epidemic or why you have even one of these diseases. You can trigger one of them just by having an auto accident, taking aspirin or medication or by starting a new exercise routine; even too much stress says latest research. Naturopathic medicine says, “Look for the root, it is in the basics beginning with what is on your fork, what toxins are in your body, what exercise do you do, what stress is in your life, what is your spiritual base”. Scientific arrogance has led us down the wrong path we better stop and take a close look at what is happening. This month 150 new chemicals will be added to the 85,000 in the environment which are part of the autoimmune problem. They will be added too industry with no oversight control at all. Autoimmune disease is the worst kind of contradiction; for a sufferer you are attacking your body with your immune system, a world upside down. God bless you in your search.
