I very much appreciate all y'all who have taken YOUR time to leave comments here, IM me, or send personal emails and/or suggestions on various topics I have managed to pull from thin air (or graphically out of my arse!) to enlighten and entertain you. Having an extremely loosely associated mind is a wonderful tool to pull upon psychotic ramblings.
THE P.O.D. No UTI, she's just brilliant...or highly deviant, which I suspect is more likely the source of her urination in the tub drain that I observed last week. Consultation with various "catologists", psychics, and veterinarian personnel reveal a kitty with a feline personality disorder. She is currently attempting to steal my identity, have me offed, and assume my life...because she BELIEVES she is human. Frankly, I am starting to believe this notion myself! LOL And I, alas, am becoming more cat-like...choosing to lie around in the sun napping and shirking all responsibilities for hours at a time.
THE S.L.U.T: Didn't get "all aboard"...illness knocked and the SLUT passed me by. Oh, I WILL ride 'er...soon. And yes, she IS still acronym-ed as previously stated: South Lake Union Trolley!
GRACE & SNOW: Odd late night ramblings of which I have no deep explanation appear to have stirred many of you into a state of introspect. Ah...this is good, Little Grassha-paws! Now if I could only figure out what the hell I was talking about we'd ALL be on the same page! LOL
THE JOB: As is typical, I can disclose little, but feel a great deal. Scary times and trying times...changes, scrutiny, challenges, and defeats magnified by the shadow of MS. I AM still being paid, which is a good thing. I will know more after a private consultation with a Vocational Rehab Specialist at the University of Washington. But even THIS has been placed on hold as, per the words of Dr. She Who Will Not Be Named, "You are too sick to have that done right now. Let's hold off until you are more stable again." Not the most encouraging of words.
MY MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS: Simply put...still a bitch. I am in mid relapse and two weeks away from my fourth Novantrone dose. IV steroids commence again today for the next FIVE days, followed by the dreaded Prednisone taper. Discouraging, but not hopeless...curbing my obsessive worry-wart tendencies the best I can.
NARCOMS: Got the email from 'em...it's time to complete that fall survey! If you're a registered user, don't forget North American Research Committee on MS.
FALL: Definitely blowing into the Pacific Northwest...let the rains begin again until sometime in June 2008...when we can all dry out again for our 3 month summer reprieve. LOL
MY FELLOW BLOGGERS: (and no, there are no direct links under the blue names cuz I'm too lazy to link 'em!) Lot's of good stuff being written around the globe. MDMHVONPA continues to entertain with statements pertaining to "putting lipstick on a pig". MERELYME delights us with her explorations about life. BUBBIE feeds my soul with Salsa recipes made in the nude. SARA keeps me posted on the "haps" in the UK. ZEE would most likely appreciate continued shoulders re: men dilemma's...and maybe some bread-baking recipes! SHERRY reminds me the Internet is NOT necessarily "user friendly" to someone who is deaf...**slapping head with a stupid "doh" here for posting a video link without captions** STEVE continues to "grapple" with BJJ, while the other STEVE (One Life) grapples with MS. Joan is back to school...congrats! Pb continues to delight me with life stories from across the "big pond" (And BTW...I have a personal note to share with you from Dr. SWWNBN regarding your comment weeks ago suggesting she fry her own damn chicken! Oddly, she read this!) MISS CHRIS is doing battles with spiders, heat, skating rinks, and dust storms...and probably returning to practice of her Arabic as well. SUZY is back or at least posted a blog...finally. She's needing our support and well-wishes right now. FUNKY MANGO tells us every week ten new things I did NOT know before reading her posts...and a few things I have remained peacefully in the dark about as well! LOL SHARON appears to have recovered from her undiagnosed head pains and has returned to the blogging fold. HARKOO although not a blogger (yet), continues to offer me sideline support via wonderful emails and insights as well as who I believe may have the longest running time of reading CHEESE amongst the masses...yes, MS IS affecting her judgment! LOL PEEJ could use some "HOO YA" support during a difficult family illness time. And the REST OF Y'ALL...well, I'm just tiring myself and running out of oxygen to sustain life at my computer to reference more. Until next time...
