Almost Winter / by Neil Blake

Given that it's Halloween tomorrow, I thought I'd do an update as it's been a while to let you all know how I'm doing. 

After my relapse this summer, I definitely went through a rough patch. I think it had to do with the steroids to help with the inflammation. The med I was on that contrubuted to my emotional train wreck was Prednisone, but I've been off that now for about 2 months, and I've been spending time painting and spending time with friends. The painting has been quite productive, with 4 new paintings done, and one new one in progress. 

I must say that I find painting to be one of my most relaxing and therapautic pass times. I've also connected with another MS sufferer (NT) and her husband to paint and help inspired each other.  It has been a great experience and our conversations are long, deep and we understand each other very well.
