mmm... dinner

Vegan yummyness!

Tofu, broccoli, red hot peppers, jalapeno, red bell pepper, carrot, ginger, garlic, celery, cashews, gai lin & basil with a soduium-free crunchy peanut butter, thai hot pepper sauce, curry & coconut milk sauce with brown rice!

Not missing animal products tonight! LOL

no nap for me...

ok... too stressed to nap! Crazy condo management company left the insurance renewal to the very last second & we're stuck with inferior product due to their lack of proper risk management. OMG the risk manager degree is actually useful! Those CRM letters on my business card are actually useful... Good news though, the management company is being purchased by Gateway & their insurance is offered through BFL in Vancouver which will be good for us next year!

At least the other condo board members have a lot of respect for me in my fight to put together a better insurance package! I truly love insurance! What a nerd :) tee hee


Just watched Asenal/Barca... good game... Zlatani love... Arensal, not so much! LOL

Nap time... beating MS fatigue sucks :( Why doesn't the disability company understand that fatigue & cognitive brain fog are part of MS! The insurer's neurologist better understand that! My MS Clinic neuro certainly does.

Tonight... I hope I have the energy to complete the kitchen cleaning that HAS to be done!


Fist time...

Virgin blogger starts typing... hmm

The blank page is always a wee bit intimidating! I have a lot of random thoughts cursing through my MS riddled brain.

I have MS, it does not have me. They call it remitting/recurring, I call it a frustrating issue that that I need to beat! I want my energy & cognitive functions back!

CCSVI is the new hot topic for those of us with MS. There are places throughout North America where I live & around the world that are offering the testing/procedure now. My neurologist blew it off & my family doctor said she'd be 'FORCED' to treat me legally if I chose to get the procedure done & there were side effects! So much for universal health care in Canada! Unfortunately, they are not offering it in my town & I do not have the means to travel elsewhere. It's weird, but I know that my jugulars are blocked/twisted before I even get tested. I've often felt that there is a tightening or something in my neck that cannot be attributed to anything regular medicine or even alternative medicine can identify until CCSVI!

My personal thoughts are that this may indeed be related to MS but it is a VASCULAR problem and should be dealt with as such! Angioplasty surgery is performed on heart patients every minute of every day with no fuss - why can't we apply this logic to people with MS who have blocked/twisted jugulars?

Connecting the dots between CCSVI & MS can be researched to death - take your time to make sure you are right - but please help the people NOW!

I've recently become vegan too... so my posts will relate to that too in the future. I love cooking & inventing new vegan delicacies is my new hobby!
