Would you like some cheese with your whine?

No this is not about my kids but their Mama. In the drive through line this morning for my coffee I had a little small talk with one of my oldest friends about how my life has been going. We joked about how I'd be coming in with my walker for coffee soon. She joked back about how she'd help me with my crutches.

The truth is I have been presented with a reality I'm not ready to deal with. I posted about my back issues a few months back. Now I'll let you know it's progressed in to numbness in the entire right side of my body. I am up for a second MRI to scan my brain, neck and upper back. The scary part is not the MRI but that they will be looking for neurological disorders like MS.

I am now not only on nine pills to trick my nerves in to not producing the pain I have been feeling but now I have an anti seizure med to help even more. I can sleep but I also feel as if I have been injected with novocaine all over my body. This sucks. My doctors are good, my parents are worried and everyone else seems to ignore the fact I can not act as I did about seven months ago.

I'm scared and sick of feeling this way. I can not wait for it all to be over.
