I was doing some of my daily reading yesterday morning in Flipboard when I came upon an article with a title of the exact same question i’d Been asking myself, “Are MS Patients Using Too Many Medications?“. In the very first sentence it also introduces a new to me word, “Polypharmacy”, that I’d never heard before but could totally and instantly relate to for the exact reason that Is also mentioned in the title, my MS. I haven’t quite finished reading it yet, as I wanted to write this and get it posted as soon as I could to hopefully start building a bit more of an audience, but am definitely going back to finish reading it.
I went to Micheal’s to pick up a canvas for my next bit of artwork. It’s a 30”x40” Gallery Wrapped Heavy Duty canvas. Undortunately i am only at the beginning of my creative process, which for this canvas is going to start with a pencil to draw it out first.Stay tuned here to see it as I go!
So the reason I brought this canvas was because I couldn’t find any of my other blank canvases.
I’m looking forward to getting back into painting again!
Before I moved to Vancouver, I was living in Ottawa where I had moved to be closer to a woman who would eventually, one day, become my ex-wife.
When Crystal and I first started seeing each other, she was living and working in Ottawa and I was finishing up school at Laurentian University in Sudbury. On weekends, she would come back to Sudbury. Once a month, I would drive to Ottawa and on long weekends, she and I would go to Montreal to hit the amazing clubs!
Now that I am back in Sudbury, I am once again close enough to consider partying in Montréal (680 kms vs 3,890 km).
If you’ve never been to Montreal, it would definitely be a worthwhile trip if you want to experience that old French heritage feeling. I love Montreal! I highly recommend it.
I find it totally amazing how quickly time flies these days! For example, yesterday was the 5 year anniversary of my MS diagnosis. Wow!
I meant to blog about this yesterday, but I was too busy getting ready for my trip home for my 40th birthday! I'm looking forward to seeing all of my friends and family again!
I use Flipboard to read the news these days, as google reader doesn’t exist anymore. Today I found an article that I was surprised to finally see published that talks about a recent study which has linked the EB virus to 7 other diseases, including MS.
I got MONO when I was in OAC (grade 13, uni prep in Ontario, where I grew up) and after i was diagnosed with MS in 2013, I kind of got the idea that the EB virus and MS were somehow linked.
Now, they are talking about how the Epstein-Barr virus is linked to 7 chronic illnesses including MS.
