An imperfect post

I haven't posted anything on this blog in months. That doesn't mean I haven't written anything. I've written hundreds of posts in my head and dozens of partial posts in draft mode (some of which were interrupted by children as this one is about to be). I've even written entire essays with plans to return to make edits, create links, load pictures, and generally make them better before publishing for the world (or my little piece of it) to read.

What's new with my MS?  I "celebrated" 5 years with MS on September 1. I'm still disease modifying drug free with no new lesions or active symptoms other than my continuing wonky vision. I have an appointment with a neuroopthalmologist who was recommended by my neurologist and who will, hopefully, refrain from making inappropriate comments about needing to shower with me in order to see how heat affects my vision.

I participated in the MS Challenge Walk as a crew member and felt like I was on the wrong side of the wall. Next year, I will be a walker. Stay tuned for appeals to join my team and or sponsor me.

I am strutting the runway again for the MS Society's Fashion Plates luncheon and fashion show on November 2. I'm looking forward to wearing beautiful clothes and having professionals do my hair and makeup.

What's new with family? My daughter is incredibly 13 and, in many ways, I am STILL 13. Nuff said.

What's new with love?  I am still single, or rather, totally single again and surprisingly ok with that.

And now my 9-year old is cuddling against me looking for bedtime reading so I am going to resist the urge to save this for later and simply hit publish. Be well. I'm going to try to make this a regular thing. Writers write.


  1. It is great to read you again. Keep writing. You're very good at it.

  2. I know whatcha mean about "hundreds of incomplete posts in my head" - probably just as well for all concerned that my wit n' wisdom never makes it even into cyberspace ;-)

    (also good to see new posts from you) - Best wishes, Val
