A bottle of Scotch and a candy bar...

That was the main reason I stopped at the grocery a little while ago after a long drive to/from my neuro in non-stop rain. I rarely partake of either substance these days, but it just seems like a Dewar's and chocolate evening to me. :smile: Or a Dewar's and chocolate week...

Will report after I've had some. Maybe.

P.S. Does anyone have a better Scotch recommendation for ...

Extent of Bump in Health Ins Premium after Diagnosis?


Up until this point in my life, I have been healthy and have rarely used my medical insurance benefits. I am self-employed in Florida and now newly diagnosed. I'm not part of a group insurance plan, so my insurance is individually medically underwritten. So far, I have not used it to pay for any services or testing related to my diagnosis.

If anyone has been in my shoes, especially in Florida, can you give ...

An observation...

I just received the latest edition of the NMSS's magazine Momentum. I was surprised to see an ad for Avonex take up an entire 7 pages. This got me wondering about the extent of ads in the rest of the magazine. I should state that I'm not making a value judgement here saying that this is good or bad. It just seemed that a 7 page ad for Avonex may have been a little overboard. ...

Doing what works

I posted a new blog entry, Do What Works. It is about chosing to leave my ego behind and still engage the world instead of being captive and homebound when mobility problems make outings so difficult.

Yes, my life really IS this silly.

It's time for yet another episode in Euphoniaa's True Life Adventures. :smile: To set the scene, I work at a university (for about 11 yrs), in an office where we dress in a professional manner, which means I usually wear skirts/dresses, dressy shoes. And we can take college classes free!

This semester I'm in a drawing class at the Center for the Arts, 3rd floor, across campus. ...

Walking Boots For People With Footdrop ??'s

I'm curious if anyone on here with weak ankles along with foot drop wears some type of walking boots to help support your ankles and keep the feet from dropping as similar to how an AFO would work when out and about. I hate my AFO's and also they don't support the ankles from the sides as they only help for foot drop. I currently wear tennis shoes.

Any experience good and/or bad and brand ...
