i'll just tell it like it is.

Okay, so i go to bed yesterday thinking it will be another night of rest and rejuvination. Little did i know i would get to experience yet another m/s exacerbation(attack,flair up). well, guess i should fill you in on what m/s is, huh?. last year in July, i was diagnosed with multiple schlerosis. m/s is an autoimmune disease that attacks the central nervous system(nerves in brain & Spinal cord) thats a fancy way of saying there are open sores in my brain and spinal cord that disrupt the flow of information to my brain. Of all the cronic diseases you could get, i do not reccomend this one. It's very sneaky, and is capable of destroying the body mentally & physically. Anyways, back to the most recent attack on my poor brain. i woke up at 3:30 this morning with a very intense and painful tension headach, it was only on the right side of my head also, so i went into my shower and stood under the warm water for almost an hour, the water felt soothing, but eventually i emptied the water heater. and the pain was back in full force. The thing about my tension headach's is they are usually a sign that something bad is going to happen. I wrapped a blanket around my head to provide pressure on my skull, and to keep any light out. I felt my way down to my parents room. I woke my dad and told him he needed to go to the gas station to get me some tylenol Extra Strength, liquid release gells. For some reason, these are the only pills that get rid of a vicious tension headache. i had to stay upright, because when i would lay down, the pain was unbearable. once the pills kicked in, i went back to bed. When i woke up again for church, i noticed i could hardly hear out of my right ear. so there you go, the newest victim; my hearing.

I dedided to start a "blog" site thingy because i think it is a great way to keep people informed on whats going on in my life. i live quite an extraordinary one. really i do. like Tomorrow morning i have to go to a sperm bank to give a specimen(jack off in a cup) so it can be frozen; so i can make babies in the future. right now i am in the process of getting accepted into the NorthWestern Stem Cell Transplant program for autoimmune disease. if everything goes as planned, it will make me better, but also steril. confused yet, don't worry, things will start making sense eventually. i'll keep ya updated.
