    I Had a Stroke (Pt. 3)

    I Had a Stroke (Pt. 3)

    As the ambulance pulled off, I had an unobstructed view of the highway. By now, I couldn't speak. I knew what I wanted to say, but my mouth wouldn't/couldn't respond to my desires. However, I could smile, and everything was funny. I felt like giggling the whole time I was in the ambulance. But I was concerned the paramedic riding with me would think something was wrong. This is just a little bit of what I was thinking.

    D Day

    D Day

    Finally today I began my treatment (a form of chemotherapy). It has been a long time in the waiting, many hurdles none of my own making however the day has been and gone the first two pills taken. I have not been one for medicines as previously mentioned but I just have to believe this will make a difference. I had been coping with my illness rather well and had been accepting and adapting along with it, even in times of needing to use a wheelchair. Lately however it has been a different story. I learned I had a small window before progressing into a Secondary Progressive diagnosis. It seems my immune system has been attacking me a little harder than initially anticipated. Adaptations have had to be made and considered so this treatment has been very important in the coming. It is the best treatment to date which should (all going well) halt any progression for at least four years and by that time there will be other more advanced stem cell therapy treatments available. It's also quite a commitment to make. Not only is the medication very targeted in shutting down my auto-immune T & B cells—it is also altering my DNA repair structure and I'm committing 18 months of my life to alteration and healing. It's no big deal really, it's just 18 months and soon enough I should be able to travel which I very much look forward to. It just holds off other potentials. This evening I just took a moment and swallowed both pills with the intention of them being a positive influence towards any future possibilities.
