Don’t panic

January 31st, 2007 · 5 Comments

I still suffer the effects of Optic Neuritis so when it gets hot, my eyes blur like they have been dilated. The doctor says it’s called Uhtoff’s Syndrome. The thing about conditions like this is, you have to keep telling yourself not to panic. Whenever my eyes become less focused, I start wondering whether they […]

Cockiness!

January 30th, 2007 · No Comments

Miracles

January 23rd, 2007 · 2 Comments

Woke up feeling a little low because I read someone’s comment on the forum on Gayle’s website (www.devic.org.uk), “don’t expect a miracle”. But then I thought about it again. Life itself is a miracle and I thank God for it.

Introductions

January 18th, 2007 · 3 Comments

Almost fifteen years ago I began an adventure. It wasn’t voluntary and it wasn’t pleasant, but I choose to call it that, because I’m learning to remove negative thoughts and words from my make up. My body started to give up on me. It began with vomiting and then numbness in the limbs on one […]
