so i ordered the heely shoes this morning, and saw some information on their web site about joining the team. maybe i can start a whole new disabled sport of competition heelies. i guess i’ll wait to see if i can negotiate the living room first.

i’m also looking for a left-foot accelerator for my car. these days, with my unresponsive right foot, driving is at best difficult and sometimes feels a little dangerous, getting my right foot to skip between brake and accelerator, especially in traffic. i bought one a few years ago, but it didn’t fit, and i never got around to installing it. adapt, and continue.

a visit to the neuro this afternoon (sounds like a mr. roger’s episode), to see what he has to say about the leg cramps and the steroid business. i maintain that this was not an attack but a progression of the disease. if that is the case, i’m not sure what he can do for me. any maintaining or improvement in my condition will have to come from me. (have you ever tried googling your neuro? i just did and got nothing!)
