|Gaynor, Gloria - I...|
Yeah, OK...I'm feeling a bit cocky (note the little chicken dancing in the esnips box up there!) these days. I've been off all DMD medications since December 5th (my last dose of Tysabri), and I have to admit, I've been feeling pretty darned good.
More and more each day, I'm beginning to believe I WILL survive...with or without disease-modifying therapies...I AM surviving. AND, I'm actually ENJOYING living without the constant schedule of drugs/IV's/shots, etc. I KNOW!!! Scary to admit, but I'm a tad bit JOYFUL these days. LOL
Now, don't get me wrong here. I DO NOT recommend nor do I believe MY personal treatment decision is or would ever be the right one for anyone else. Frankly, there remains a tiny voice lurking in my head saying, "Enjoy it now, smarty pants...I'll get you, my pretty. And your little dog (cat), too!!" If ONLY MS would take my cat...but I digress (again)...sigh.
But, I'm also not going to sit around feeling guilty OR in suspense wondering when the next MS shoe will drop, crushing my brain into mush. For now, I'm just riding the wave...enjoying the view. I will survive. I'm not letting anything bum my voyage at the moment...
