MS Renegade

A Highly Opinionated Perspective on Life with Multiple Sclerosis


New Jersey,
September 21
I am a 50-something writer and I spend much of my time pretending I don’t have MS. I have limited success at that. The rest of the time I write, I read, I knit, I obsessively watch documentaries about the British Royal Family. Ok, just kidding about that last one. Sort of. It’s NOT obsessive. I am an inveterate Anglophile. I am grateful for my children, for my grandchildren and for my many, many wonderful friends. I think vodka is underrated as a coping mechanism. I adore my little dog. I wish I could marry Dick Cavett, Conan O’Brien and Bruce Springsteen. But not at the same time. And I realize two of them are out because they are already married. I said ‘wish’. Sheesh. But that still leaves Dick.

Blecch! I have been sick as a dog with an upper respiratory thing that just WILL NOT QUIT. I am a hacking, nose running, aching misery.

Aren't you glad you are not here?!? lol

At any rate, my wonderful friend Marc did win the award for Best Patient Blog, as I knew he would and as he truly deserved.

Other than that, there has been nothing going on. I have been too sick to do anything. I never get colds, so I am a big baby when I do. And this is the worst one I think I have ever had. Buy Kleenex stock, you won't be sorry. :)

I want to thank everyone who is following my blog. I am really grateful for the support and encouragement. Please feel free to contact me if you would be interested in doing a guest post on MS, chronic illness or caretaking. Or any other subject you think would be a good fit. I love hearing other people's stories.
