Posted on TiMS: 3+ months after liberation

I was liberated just over three months ago and in this last month I've had no noticeable improvements, but no regression either. My energy is still way up and continue to have more strength in my left arm. My mobility and balance are still a bit better - I haven't used a cane in two months now. My manual dexterity is still better: I still wear shirts with buttons on a regular basis again, and only have problems with dexterity or mobility if I'm really tired from exercising or from walking around (or having too much wine).

I'm at the cottage now for my vacation. Besides doing lots of repairs around the place, I've gone out sailing my little Laser, something I didn't think I'd ever be able to do again. My weaker left side still causes me to doubt how far I can push it, so I wouldn't go sailing in storms like I used to do. If I feel good enough to start sailing in storms again, you'll be the first to know!


  1. thanks for the update, glad you are better and hope the improvement will continue, even if it is very slow. At the very lease is sounds as if you have stopped progression, that can buy you time, it seems like the next several years will be better for people with MS...better drugs, CCSVI, worms, and more learning.

  2. "Too much wine."

    I am not sure there is such a thing.
