treatment



I am head to Pacific Interventionalists to have the CCSVI testing and Liberation Treatment next week! I am tired of getting more drugs for this and that, and hope the treatment will help with symptoms enough to be able to wean off a lot of the crap I am taking.

Am a lot better from the IVIG treatments and can get around and drive and do a short shopping trip, but the fatigue and dizziness and bladder and bowel troubles continue.

I know that the Liberation Treatment isn't a cure for MS but if it can relieve some symptoms and make my quality of life better, what the heck! Go for it. Its not experimental and its not dangerous as far as procedures go. I am using my unused vacation money from the last few years to make the trip and have the treatment.

At worst, it will be a weeks vacation in sunny southern California and a new photo opportunity. I haven't seen the Pacific Ocean since I was a child so I am looking forward to the beach at sunset.

I will be adding to this journal as I get back and will relay my thoughts and results about the treatment and location and any relief I get.

I picked Pacific Interventionalists because they have a great track record and those who have been treated by Dr Arata have been thrilled.

Really cold and windy weekend

windy



Although sunny on Sunday, it rained almost all day Saturday, and the temp dropped like a stone from 65 at 7 AM to 45 at 6 PM and wind picked up from nothing to 30 mph with gusts to 45 and it blew all night long. Just could not bear to walk in the wind. Drives my nerves crazy!

Did pilates and weights Sunday and gave myself Saturday off as everything tingled and buzzed with the pressure drop. Ugh.

organic



Spring has sprung and I spent 45 minutes planting my herb in the garden. Everything got wiped out with the crappy weather last year and this winter so its getting a fresh start.

Had to add new soil and am out of organic fertilizer so its not going to be 100 percent organic this year. However, I use no pesticides so the produce will be clean and tasty!

IVIg



Wow, no total crash this time! Yay, but they did drop my dose a little bit. I managed to do a little gardening, but hurt pretty bad afterward.
