Hi there and welcome, i crochet too, sort of, hehe i try to get a patter for something easy, and attempt to do it, get myself confused and just start switching it up. I made 3 scarfs for my sisters in law and mother in law. They turned out ok, I hope.
Today made some peanut brittle, which was a first for me, made one batch and decided to make another one. Some of our family will be getting that and home made caramels (not made yet), for christmas.
So are you on any meds for the MS? Im on copaxone, Just dx'd the end of sept, but mom was dx'd about 10 yrs ago, only have 5 more days of my second month. So far so good. Sat I couldnt do the shot on my thigh, the needle bounced. I said honey, do this i can do it today. Next day for my stomach shot, lickety split, and i was done.
Welcome again, its a great site, helped me tremendously.
Mother has MS, diagnosed 10 yrs ago.
Diagnosed with spastic colon in 2000.
Diagnosed with RRMS Sept 06
Provigil 100mg, Copaxone

hi cyndi, i grew up crocheting and now it either doesn't catch my attetion or my hands are no so agile. i took up watercolor painting this summer and is the most rewarding therapy i've ever had. i'm hooked on it tho have not been able to attend any classes just meet w/a group or have the 'paint-out here when i'm not mobile. total investment to start w/beginners kit is under $20.00 and worth every penny. i'm in a wheelchair and cannot bake/cook any longer so am very happy to give out my paintings for xmas as it's been years since i could contiibute.
no, i do not take any meds at all. 2x i was hospitalised for delium comas due to neurologist prescribed rx. i do take 1000mg vit e for menapause but thats all. i have 8 years of true amnesia from rx so i'd rather tough it out.
yes, just joined this forum?-and found it is a lifesaver, well sanity saver! haha. ty for replying-i feel like i am finding a whole new family. frannie
