that would be great Vali! I would love to read it...! I just write on our blog page and that's occasionally...I just can't seem to keep with stuff.
just returned from our cruise and slowly getting back to sort of normal...what ever that can be...I have been having blood pressure problems for a while, but now it really seems to be a problem problem. I'm supposed to take a special extra pill if my blood pressure stays over 150/90 for more than 2 hrs...well, it was originally going up and down and I never had to do that...but for two days in a row I've had to take that darn pill and not much help either! so it's call the doctor again! My legs feel like rocks too! at least my fingers can still type!
Faith...I think you do a great job and every person brings a bit of themselves to the team and that draws people to it...
When I catch up with the emails and my photo book I'll be able to do more...

I don't remember which thread it was on, but I remember that we were all going to post something about our personal MS journeys. Someone mentioned posting a blog about the subject and I've been working on mine from time to time since then. I think it's finally just about ready so if anyone can tell me where to post a link to the blog once it's up, I'll be happy to do that.

I hope that things are going great for the rest of you. I think I need to go to bed early today so I'll chat with all of you later. Hope the week started out well for all of you. emoticon

There was much rejoicing!

Thanks, Barrister. I've never been sure that I'm very skilled at keeping our group vibrant and active. Starting new posts regularly helps. And, I think Ezz and Vali will be good at helping with that.

Do you (or anyone else) have other suggestions for keeping our group active?

MS is known as the "Snowflake Disease" as no one's stymptoms are alike. The disease does strike in similar areas in a large percentage, but sometimes there is a symptoms that is seen in such a small percent of the MS population that it is missed as a result of the Disease Process...That is what happened to me...I will write a blog on SP because it is way to long for a post.
so everyone..post what happened to you that made the diagnosis. This will really help those people out there with that big question mark over their head....Just because I was an RN and working in Neuroscience didn't make the diagnosis any easier...Doctors look at nurses as little "drama queens" who have the disease that's big on their unit...
Let's get going team!

Yes; we can all create new threads. I'm hoping all of you members out there will do that often. And, as team leaders, Ezz and Vali_T and I will also try to do that on a regular basis.

Thank you for welcoming me. I'm a little nervous about this because I've never been a team leader of any kind before, but I have a good feeling about it. I'm looking forward to getting to know more of the members of the team.

There was much rejoicing!

Ezz and I have also added Vali as a team leader. Thanks, both of you, for agreeing to share the responsibilities with me.

With 3 of us, if one of us is unavailable, due to vacation, illness, whatever keeps us too busy, then there is still one back-up.

Ezz -- thanks so much for the introduction. I knew many of those things, which you've shared over the years, but I'll bet many of our members didn't. Looking forward to your additional contributions!

Thanks Faith! And "Hello" to all our super spark members...sure hope I don't mess this up!!

My computer is being a little grumpy right now so I cannot add emoticons...and I love those little guys too!

Please feel free to go to my page and look about...it will tell you about me...but just in case, I little synopsis...
I'm 68 yrs young...and diagnosed with MS when I was 60. I worked as a Registered Nurse until then. I graduated from Bellevue Hospital School of Nursing in NYC and my last 4 years were on a neuroscience unit...I had many mild symptoms of MS in my early years, but there were no MRI's in those days so it was difficult for them to make a diagnosis and even when it was right on my MRI's when I did have them taken...they still took their time with a proper diagnosis...I'm very interested in the research articles and I will post them as I get them...

I'm still walking and I do Equine therapy...love horses...I've developed Diabetes Type 2 (oh Joy) and hypertension and high cholesterol (more Joy!) and I will try to incorporate information about that....Such as what is "Insulin Resistance"...I've been up and down in my weight for my adult life...so I can relate to everyone of us...

Hope this gives you an idea about me...ask questions and I will try and answer and I sure hope I am creative enough to keep you all on your toes!
Very excited to work with Faith!

Love ya all...Ezz

I was, a number of years ago, asked to be a co-leader of this group after a relatively new leader took over leadership responsibilities. After a few weeks, the new leader disappeared and left me to be the only leader.

I have realized, for some time, that, although I have the time and motivation to lead this group alone, I don't know that I have the creativity. I feel like I often fall down at coming up with new topics to post and finding ways to keep members active.

So, several month ago, I asked Ezz to consider co-leading the group, and, after getting through a somewhat busy time that she had in her life earlier, she has graciously accepted the challenge.

Thanks Ezz!

Please welcome Ezz to the leadershp team at Doing it with Multiple Sclerosis.
