come to think of it

[QUOTE=Dawn Kevies mom]Hi Michael,
Hope your day is going better today! I was wondering, was transverse myelitis ruled out? Just a thought, some of the same symptoms? Have a great day! Dawn Kevies mom :o[/QUOTE]

Thanks for the input there. I don’t believe so. I will research it a little for myself in case I need to educate a doctor. I do a lot of that lately, but then don’t we all.

Also, I want to thank everyone for their support. The last week has been all over the road, but mostly a multi car pile up. Tonight especially, I have really bad pins and needles pain. Disappointing, as this is following a good father’s day when most symptoms were under control. But even now at 2 in the morning, I just wanted to share something with all of you. It is something we all have learned the hard way. When your body is being attacked, it isn’t your body that is being tested. Your mind and soul are. Does the depression get too strong? Do you find yourself just too worn down to fight the daily obstacles? At times, it does for all of us pile up over our head. Losing friends for whatever reasons along the way. Family not understanding your condition or maybe you just get tired of them babying you, whatever. Doctors misdiagnosing you or telling you it isn’t real. Don’t lose the battle by fighting with the wrong weapons. Do what you can to fight it physically, of course, but remember that faith moves mountains and fear can kill your mind if you let it. Don’t lose heart, friends. That is why we have each other to lean on.
