Hello, hello...

Hello to my Dearest Forum Family!  How is everyone?  I've been in a crazed writing frenzy of insanity!  Literally!  I am writing for an online paper, our local print paper, still trying to finish my book on Stills and now I am a freelance editor for a few authors who write paranormal, romance, sci-fi, fantasy fiction and many more.  I get to read books before print, fix mistakes and get paid for it!  Yeah, I am all over that like a fly on a sticky trap... hehehe  But anyway, thats not why I'm here.

A woman I have known all my life was recently dx'd with MS and I only see her like once a year and I told her about all of you here and how wonderful you are and I'm hoping she joins you here.  Her neuro is one I have seen before and what he did for her was good, she is not on any disease modifiers, but she had a flare recently and she had to have solumedrol treatment.  So if you get a woman saying "Spastic" sent me, it is her...  She is a very sweet person...  

Over on Facebook our Still's group is crazy active, (like it is here)  I did start a drug called Arthrotec and it ended up me being in the hospital with a GI bleed, go figure, finally find a combination that seemed to be working good...  Grrr...  I've been off treatment completely for about a month now and I am back in a flare...  I'm going to have to start doing the injections, and I am a big chicken-s**t!!!  But anyway, gotta go for now!!!  I Miss You All!!! (((Hugs)))

Love You All,

Sorry Carol!!!  Hehehe Lulu!!!  Of course you all would open your loving arms to a newbie!!! I  told her how wonderful all of you are and how you guys never let me give up while being in Limboland...  To which I am eternally grateful and love you all...  

It is a whole new world being "active" again!!!  Although it is mainly writing or related to writing, I have found my niche and am able to be active on my own terms.  

I was really hoping this last combination of meds would do it for me, between the methotrexate and the powerful NSAID, it was beginning to work, I didn't mind ingesting the chemo and having the side effects, but boyhowdy the Arthrotec did a number on me... :(

Hugs and Love to you all!!!
