I can't believe I'm still up. I did take a 4 hour nap this afternoon though so maybe that had something to do with it! I can't even begin to tell you how great THAT felt. I also got feeling back in my ribs, my upper back and the palms of my hands today. I gotta ask the fellow MS'ers...does it make me a complete baby that everytime I get feeling back in my hands I start to sob like that crazy old lady in the back pew no one knows at a wedding? I hope not because it makes me feel good, - no GREAT that I can feel my own hair without it making me cringe in pain. I hope it's a sign I'm over the hump and don't have to face an IV for 5 days to eventually stop this. Everyone knows how I feel about the prednisone in large doses (i.e. cocaine steriods in a bag)... Now onto tomorrow, maybe I'll get the feet to cooperate, too. I hope so...I've got 2 exciting photo shoots tomorrow! Night all!

Today I felt pretty good after a good night's sleep. It can do wonders for the spirit and soul, not to mention the stuff between one's ears. So far so good, the symptoms are staying steady at numb and annoying and the gabapentin is keeping the beast at bay until I can figure out if this is a full-blown attack. I would love nothing more than to not have to live on prednisone for 2 weeks while I fight of symptoms that resemble a crack whore looking for a fix. I'd rather eat straight caffiene than deal with the weaning of that stuff! Well, off to bed to be boring and tonight, well, that's just the way I'd prefer it. :O)

Seems like forever ago I was a girl fighting the silly little nuances of a disease I wanted to forget. Too bad it won't let me. I'm 3 days into total frustration of a flare up and I don't even know how to feel about it. It's been almost 3 years disease free and wouldn't you know it, right about the time I feel like super girl...BAM! That stupid ugly son of b*tching MonSter rears it's ugly head. The nerve, I swear. I'd kick it's a$$ if I could feel my feet. :O)
