But the big one is the title "Looking forward with Multiple Sclerosis".
When I first started this I'm fairly certain that I was saying I was looking forward to things even though I have MS.
I still am - but never really thought of all those things I'm looking forward to.
Here are a few things that I've been thinking of lately - but I've categorized them.
What I'm looking forward to in my life:
- My kids to stop fighting some day. Which they're doing now.
- My kids to fight intelligently - without the sticking out of the tongue.
- My kids to keep learning and doing so well in school.
- Will to start kindergarten this year.
- Kate to be that great big sister she has been and is becoming more of. Much more tolerant then before.
- Both of them to graduate from High School, then College!
- Both of them having families of their own. I really look forward to that. I'll be old - but I'll still be around. I really want to be.
- I really can't wait till I can pay off some bills.
- Looking forward to the economy improving - can't help adding that - it's a current worry.
- I want to get the beagle in agility classes - looking forward to her doing well at that. She's a smart puppy!
- Being able to spend time with my best friend.
- Being with my folks!
- Playing with the kids.
- having our team at work doing really, really well. :) Can't help that one either - it's a current want.
- Right now - I'm really looking forward to Sunny and 70!!
What I'm looking forward to if there is a cure or oral medication for MS:
- A cure!
- Not having to take shots! OMG - I can't even begin to express how much I'm looking forward to that. I mean - if I don't HAVE to take it - then I won't even have to feel the guilt of skipping when I sometimes do. :(
- Even if I still have MS - taking Oral medication instead of the shot.
- Have I mentioned - not having to take the shots?
- Being able to take a shower and when I wash my arms, thighs, hips, and stomach, not having to feel the painful bruises from the shots or the bumps.
- Not having grossly indented skin - worse then cellulite.
- Not being soooooooooooo fatigued all the time.
- Being able to wake up from a nights sleep and not feel like I need to go back to bed forever.
- Being happier.
- No more excruitiating sharp pains that come up my neck into my head.
- No more feeling numb or tingles in my fingers, hands, legs, middle of my back, thighs, heels, and even in my head - so weird - like my hair is standing up.
- No more feeling like someone's using a VooDoo doll with my name on it.
- I could go on and on.
What I'm looking forward to with MS:
- The 7th year my team participates in the MS Walk is this April - I'm looking forward to that and really hope we can make our goal.
- The next Webcast on dealing with symptoms and hearing about the latest research.
- Hearing about people who have had specific treatments for MS and are doing so much better.
- I'm looking forward to hearing that people who have visible disabilities with MS, that they can get a treatment that reverses MS. I heard about that and that would be lovely.
- I'm making these bracelets for my team members - in the MS Walk colors - I'm looking forward to giving those to the girls and I hope they like them.
- Looking forward to reading some of these blogs and hearing that people are feeling better.
That's about it in a nutshell. I could go on forever - but who has that much time? We're all so busy.
If anyone is still reading - I hope you like the new background and look of the site. I wanted something a bit more cheerful and there are these free blog backgrounds, so this one made me smile and I grabbed it.
Take care all!
Thanks for reading!
