Motivational Monday: Hope for the Cure

This is interesting… 3 years minimum to start trials.  This one, I might be willing to volunteer for.

Thinking about this… If the Aubagio continues to work and hold off new lesions, which HOPEFULLY holds off any symptom progression AND this can cure MS, then I would be completely happy to participate in trials. If I can just learn to manage what I feel like on a daily basis, then maybe I could be OK with this level for the rest of my life. IF of course, this can REVERSE the symptoms of MS, then oh HELL YES I’m in.

I know this is a lot of IFs, but I never give up hope. Some days I don’t quite feel like having hope (like this morning), but after reading this article I am excited about the prospect. I wonder what life would be like if I could simply get used to my feet aches or find something that will actually help me not ache anymore.

If I could take just a little Gabapentin three times a day for the rest of my life and not have pain, tingling, or numbness, then I think I could live with that. Heck, if this is just a side effect of the Aubagio and I when I stopped it, my feeling went back to normal, I would be more than excited. If I do have to live with this level forever, then I could figure it out.

If I could figure out a way to handle the overheating issue better, then maybe I wouldn’t mind living through a desert summer. The ice vest works great when I am baking in the sun at the race track. If there was a way to work out without overheating, that would be amazing. I’m not sure this symptom of MS will ever go away.

If I could get off the Aubagio, I could possibly get rid of several side effects which I strongly dislike. That would mean I could stop taking a couple of pills a day to counteract the medicine that is helping my MS not to progress.

I keep meaning to be more active, but never getting around to it. Maybe this is the motivation I needed to get me on track. If I can keep my body healthy, moving, and functioning well, then that is all the better for me when we find the cure. I know I am strong willed, now I think it’s time to prove it to myself in the gym. Finding the energy to make that happen if the key. Let’s get to it!

Let’s keep hoping for a cure and keep working towards remaining healthy and happy.
