My father had a couple of mini-strokes recently and to say that I've been stressed is a light way of putting it. He's OK and home from the hospital. He appears to be fine, but they can't find the cause which has me very concerned. It's not for lack of running every damn test known to man, but all the doctors could do was confirm that it happened, not why. It's frightening because not knowing why leaves the door open to it happening again, with maybe more dire consequences.

Anyway, that's been my world recently. I'm still lurking about and responding periodically, I just can't put my head straight just yet. I wanted to you all to know that I haven't bailed out of MS, I'm just taking a back seat for a little while.

Take you time, Trish.

Very sorry that it happened to your dad. I hope he will recover.

Hey girl, do what you need to do. You're in our thoughts and prayers.

Much love,

Just take care of yourself as best you can, Sister. We'll understand and be here for you as best we can.

Hi Trish,

Hope everything goes well for your father. Stay strong sister.


I can finally admit I pretend to say and do nice things so people will think I'm a standout guy.
