Cutting directly to the chase...I'm BACK on a course of IV steroids today for the next 5 days. Yep...I'm "inflamed". I've always been "inflammatory", but it seems the MS bug has bitten my butt again and will not be ignored.
Dr. She Who Will Not Be Named graciously squeezed me in on her schedule today at the last moment and I agreed to see her...I think she KNEW at that moment when I said "yes" to coming in, something was definitely wrong. I usually just prefer she play a doctor on the "Innernet" and I pretend to be a patient via virtual reality. LOL
The office visit was most alarming and disarming...I didn't even have the strength to spar or fight and the fine doctor was waaaaaaay too nice and concerned. She was quite calm (not the usual flightful gnat buzzing around), sincere, and well...just too dayumed nice for my comfort! When she told me (in all sincerity), "You're really sick", I almost burst into tears. The nerves don't lie and all her pounding, "follow my finger", gait demonstrations, push/pull exams confirmed what I have been feeling for some time now...sick...relapse...inflamed.
I am completely exhausted...fried...worn out from all the singing and dancing I have been doing trying to keep up with my one woman musical/comedy act/show.
It's intermission time...go get a beverage and some popcorn. I'm going to go do a costume change and get ready for the second act...LOL...
