Hi Everyone. Thanks for the well wishes. I'm feeling much better. Well enough to decorate a tree and I'm making a beaded night shirt for my daughter. My neurologist said my EEG shows "slowing" of my brain waves which he attributes to my many meds. My brain is slow? Well isn't that a big surprise. I will continue my periodic search for drugs I can discontinue. Never happens, but I'll keep searching.
Anyway, Carol how are you feeling? I hope you're getting some strength back Sis. Are your feet warm now? No birds belly up?
Firebabe, I'm sorry you had to experience the catatonic flare. Today I'm wearing my sweatshirt that says, "Some days it's not even worth chewing through the restraints." Love to All, Your Butterflake
