2006 December 12 : Sitting around...

I've been sitting around today... again, staying home from work... It is nice to be able to work from home.

My eyes, which aren't blury but are not in focus together, have been better the last few weeks. Though I still have good days and bad. My left hand, oddly enough, I could almost feel yesterday, until I went to bed and it was more numb than ever before... Go figure.

The new love was over this weekend for our 5-month anniversary and it was very nice. My 'Performance' wasn't as good as it has been but hopefully it's nothing to get worried about. I still need to lose @ 25-35 lbs which I'm sure will help signifigantly.

I also need to sell my mountain bike. It's a very expensive (>$2000) full-suspension bike (Giant AC Air) with 6" of travle on both ends. It's a sweet ride but I can not ride it anymore and I need the money for meds. I'll probably sell it for $800 or so with everything I have for it. I've only ridden it @ 10 times... Watch Criegs list in Austin. I'll put it up today.

I also need to sell my TV. 53" Pioneer Elite Projection ($7k new). Probably for $750... As you can tell, I really need the cash... I'm even considering selling my Jeep for @ $12k (show jeep with award winning setup) just to be able to buy something that gets better than 25 mpg cause I can not afford the gas... Freaking sad, I know...

Ugg... Well, other than that, nothing's changed lately... Check back here though, I'll post more soon...

2006 December 03 : Undecided

I'm still undecided on what to do. Rebif is $1k/month and I can't afford it. I added a donation link to my website to hopefully get some assistance.

The numbness in my hands is getting worse it seems. I really don't mind the tempature differences I have had for so long but I need my hands to work. This is really getting rediculious. I have this constant kink in my neck also and sometimes when I pop it I start to feel better for a few seconds. I still think, even if I do have MS, that I have something else in there (pinched nerve, disk, etc...) causing this Ulnar nerve numbness. It ticks me off they stop looking as soon as they think they found MS (which ofcorse there still not sure on until I die and they take a tissue sample...)

Anyhow, my new love is still here, sleeping right now actually. I can't believe I found her. Now if I could just win the lottery... LOL!

The holidays are comming up and I put out my wishlist for anyone interesting in buying me something. If you can't tell, I'm into movies.. bigtime. Ok, so the wishlist is more for my family then the public but I won't refuse a present from anyone.. /wink

Thanks for reading and I'll post more info soon.
