My Birthday

I had a great birthday yesterday. I might even go so far to say it was close to perfect.

The weather is brutally cold and my multiple sclerosis is struggling. Like most people
cold weather hurts your bones but with multiple sclerosis it can really stop you from

This morning the wind chill was 35 below zero. No that is not a typo it really was that cold.
Needless to say, my MS body is staying home today. The only time I am going outside is to take the dogs out.

Thanks everybody for making my birthday special. The chinese food was great and we have lots of leftovers. The dogs did not get anything to eat but their own doggie food. The champagne was great and the company was awesome. We didn't sit on the floor and eat because I was afraid I wouldn't be able to get back up. We toasted to a cure for multiple sclerosis.
Have a good day everybody, stay warm! Brrr !!!

Thanks for the birthday wishes. I had a great day.
Changing meds is never an easy decision. I was on Betaseron then Copaxone and I just kept getting worse. Tysabri has changed my life.
