Okay Algis - which one is your favorite? If my plan is to find the tastiest & most refreshing Scotch, I guess I'll have to get going on my project! My next bottle will be YOUR choice. Of course I was slowed down a little when my reaction to the chocolate/Scotch combo on Tuesday was to instantly become extremely ill for the next 2 hours.
I'm not giving up, however.
I'm going to blame it on a stressful day and probably a surprise stomach virus, so I'll try again later. I have to finish this bottle before I get to try the next one.
And I looked up NHE's delicious looking chocolate suggestion - that site won't send me any unless there's someone at home to sign for it. Will have to look for something locally, I guess.
Anyway, here's my quick neuro trip report: Up at 4:30 am, 2-hour drive to the doc in pouring rain, 2 hours back in mist that forced me to do the wipers manually the entire trip. Doc doesn't know why I'm still bothering to go if I'm not going to do meds (I had sent her a 4-page explanation of why none of the DMDs are right for me, complete with research notes/links, contraindications).
She's not interested in my spinal issues - no point in a spinal MRI if I won't do meds. Agrees that almost all my complaints are NOT neurological and I should just ask my local doc. Agrees there's no way to decide whether MS or HNPP is to blame for any specific MS-y symptom. Neuro is actually VERY nice to me, though.
Stopped to shop a bit and then the grocery. I think I'm finally paying for that long day with giant back spasms this morning - doubtless from sitting in weird positions for hours...and walking long distances with a cane... pushing carts. The back thing is a brand new issue - never felt this type of spasm before! And now I have to drag myself to my final art class of the semester, carrying my giant portfolio across campus (plus a cane), sitting on a hard wooden 'horse' for a couple of hours.
I hurt! Scotch would probably help, but Boss likely to disapprove of that solution.
Bitch, bitch, bitch. Sorry, but sometimes you gotta.
Thanks for stopping in, guys.
