yeah, well…

so, ok,  i’m not entirely sugar free, i’m a heck of a lot closer than i’ve ever been. last night turning down chocolate lava cake with strawberries. i used to sit in front of the tv with a bowl of peanuts and chocolate chips – no more. so yeah, i had some sugar over the weekend, but i still feel that 95% sugar free is pretty good. i just don’t want to be a fat guy any more.

now this woman, wendy booker, is doing something really remarkable, even for a person without ms.)

this is interesting.

i am home from work today. we all say (don’t we?) that there are good days and bad days. today was a bad day. i blame it on the LDN. all weekend, i’ve been staggering around like frankenstein, my balance completely gone, both legs not responding where it used to be just the right leg. ever since i started taking that stuff, almost to the day, all of my symptoms have gotten worse. i even went from 3mg to 1.5mg. my pcp said that it would take at least 6-8 weeks to really know if it was going to work. i don’t think it’s been 8 weeks, but this is intolerable. so i’m stopping it. maybe my increase in symptoms is not the LDN, and if so, maybe the damage has been done. but this is awful. i know there are ms-people who have it a lot worse than me, but for me this is intollerable.

so i’m trying the bed rest cure. if i get up tomorrow and find no improvement, i might stay in bed another day. dr. swank recomends bed rest as a “treatment,” and as boring as it is, i’ll give it a try. as my pcp said, all i have is time.

One thought on “yeah, well…”

  1. Congrats on cutting the sugar. Restricting ones diet can be very hard.

    I hope you feel better soon. I was exhausted today so I took in a little bed rest cure too and now I feel pretty good.
