If too long goes without reading a posting from members, I too, find myself wondering what is happening with one person or another in the CP family here on HW. I realized that sometimes our family members do not feel “they” have anything of value to add to a posting or that anything of interest or should we say “post” worthy happening in our lives. In order to feel a tad more connected; it would be nice to hear how everyone was managing winter. So if you have not posted for a while or even if you just posted a day ago, let us know what is happening with you. Since we don’t just happen to bump into one another here or there – how about a quick CP weekend roll call. Let’s us know what you are up too.

Progressive neurodegenerative disease called Multiple System Atrophy, muscle spasms, muscle pain, neuropathy, & neuropathic pain, central sleep apnea, osteoarthritis, and 2 pain implants – intrathecal pain medication pump and an SCS (spinal cord stimulator). Extra fun little toys and gadgets; O2 generator and assorted wheelchairs, walkers, canes, and orthotic braces. Med - too many too list or even care about!
Some how I’ve been caught is some type of “injection” Groundhog’s Day movie. You remember the one where the main character relives the same day over and over again. I now know that feeling plus what it would be like to be a human pincushion. I ended up with a regular flu shot, one for H1N1, a pneumonia booster, an every 5-year tetnus booster, and finally a vaccine for Shingles. Then my doctor went and “discovered” my B-12 levels were low and so that is now a monthly injection. On a sadder note, we had to put our dog “down” due to an aggressive cancer she developed at a young age.

In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz
