Home sweet home
No sarcasm with the title. It really is sweet. To 'hug up' and watch TV at the end end of everyday is absolute bliss. Happy happy joy joy!

My routine has changed, I spend money with purpose and we are sick with smiles. My flat, sorry our flat, is clean and no longer smells like a single man lives here alone. Sleeping routine has now changed and monitoring fatigue will need closer attention but I think the change is working.

I have a new ailment on the ms side. Headaches. It feels like a cold metal spike is being rammed through my head, left hand side pushed down from the top of my head towards the ground. Owww.... but easily dealt with pain killers. I don't know about you but I am the type of person who reacts when its really bad and I don't pre-empt pain. I won't take pain killers every four hours in the hope that it stops pain. I hope that makes sence to some. It's better for your liver that way anyway. When your a drinker like myself you have to look after your liver.

Talking of ms things...The greatest research of the past ten years has been published. All in the wake of my life development I have still been looking. IZ7-R is a protein whose role is to guide the actions of one type of immune cells (T-cells). The MS-related version of the protein may contribute to MS by guiding those immune cells to attack the nervous system. I am not going massivly into it but ms is not something we pass on to our kids but it is something that my genes have been effected by. I will let you do your own research on this. Go on....you can surf the net. If your interested take a look, its very interesting.

I just have to leave you with one thought:
If you spend all of your life working out why we have life, then arn't you missing out on life itself?

I am going back to enjoying life. Stay well,
Dave

    Great advice. I believe I often spend too much time and energy focusing on the MS this or that.

    LOL! But, wasn't that the fun part of having a bachelor pad?
