It’s Not the Disability, It’s the Unrelentless Progression

Another good article: "It’s this damn worsening disability, this insidious wasting away that threatens to shake my resolve. Whatever I do, it’s never enough. MS cannot be placated. It demands so much of me, and then it demands more." Enjoying the Ride article.

Three years and 9 months of relief

Saw the urologist today. My plumbing is so much better than the first time I saw him (just before my Polish liberation treatment in 2010) that he says there is no need for my annual checkup any more. A few months after my CCSVI treatment I stopped taking the meds he had me on. Over the years since I first saw him, my urological symptoms have improved. That, my reduced fatigue and better balance all improved after my treatment. A coincidence? I don't think so. Even as other symptoms (especially strength and control of my left arm and leg) continue to worsen, I am still reaping the benefits of my trip to Katowice.
With daughter Anna, while on our multi-vineyard tour of South Australia at Christmas and New Years. Good thing my plumbing works better!
