''Actually, Christina, while I don't mean to burst your bubble, it's pretty much just you who thinks you're awake right now. You see, we're all still sitting on that little patch of grass, in utter paradise, under the ancient oak in your favorite meadow by the sea. And at the moment you're practicing your new in-body-experience technique, as you doze in and out of trance on your silky, swaying, hummingbird-powered hammock.

You're so cute.''

''When my Mom died I felt such a void that it made the Grand Canyon look like a pin-dot.'' Day After- Session Five Hbot

Yesterday, I was wondering how I was going to continue with Hbot:  Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy,
I have spent all the monetary donations for the five Hbot treatments and was figuring out how I would financially manage at least one Hbot visit a week.  It is a financial obstacle. And when your not at your best, that is an added obstacle.  I got a phone call message that my yard needs manicuring, my yard? You ought to see my nails!  Right now, everything is two months behind.

Everyone assumes I reap a lot of money in Isagenix and every new entrepreneur is told to, "Fake it till you make it."  However, I haven't accrued the thousands and thousands of dollars that is part of the work at home industry.  My trained reply is:  "You wouldn't believe me if I told you."  Truthfully, it is enough to pay for my products that I personally use to fight Multiple Sclerosis. It has always been about the nutrition and how it helps me live MS free, until this past summer it has been all I have used.

For example:  Yesterday afternoon a man rang my door bell while I was recharging and my Akita barked, loudly. Then he rang it again! I thought, "Grandchild" and after three hours from a coma nap aka recharge. I roll out of my docking station, the bed, to be happy!  Happy to see my grandchild!  Only to be greeted by a solicitor selling security systems! I looked at him all EMESSEEEE and slurred something, and he continued to pitch me. Had I had my wits about me, I would have given him one of my Isagenix business cards and asked him to sign up and buy products on line!  I'm such a picture of health  ''ugggg....'' but  instead, I just bobbled up against my door jam and kept thinking '' I have a security system, my Akita.''  And had I had my wits, I would have peeked through the little tiny round peek hole that my front door has before I even opened the front door. I was feeling very Emesseeeee .. for a visual, Emesseee means I look "three sheets to the wind.''

To be honest,  if I had a lot of cash in the bank, I would be a philanthropist!  Do you ever watch the TV show Shark Tank?    I recommend at least once.

So the way Gofundme is set up;  a $100.00 dollars must be in the GFM bank before the site goes live. That first $100.00 was from me and then the first $5 was from me too.  I am looking active now and more important, the GoFundMe site is activated! What active means is the site can be found in the searches and other people will see your plea and your reasons.  It is still up to you to update and share.
Your responsible for the contents and Gofundme is responsible for approving the contents. They have denied me twice on contents and I have edited the site so many times fine tuning the grammatical. I know I keep them very busy. They're watching me!

So to date, I have spent $900.00 total for the Hbot sessions and my GFM  has not been consistent with donors.  I am in a tug-o-war on how to proceed.  I scheduled for next Wednesday a 90- minute Hbot session and I was thinking "how am I going to afford this?"  Even the extra fuel for transportation has added to the expense!  My friend and old mentor Dale Calvert told me a few years ago, "If the problem can be solved by money, it is not a problem.''

So I updated the GFM  and I borrowed a message picture that said, "Remember that woman that gave up? Neither does anyone else." and I THANKED EVERYONE for making the Five Sessions Possible.   There is a lesson here.  I chose GRATITUDE and I am THANKFUL for what I have received.  Oh and you cannot fake that, it doesn't work. It has to be pure for it to work and expectation cannot be on the mind or heart.  It is the moment of pure thankfulness that our Heavenly Father reveals extraordinary. God used Brenda Harper at this precise moment too.

Since I was inside the edit mode, I did more fine tuning and when I went to view it, I was blown away!  Brenda Harper generously donated. By generously donating I mean she paid for a weeks worth of sessions!  At first I wanted to give it back and say "Thank you, No Thank you, it is to much"  But I didn't do this.  I thanked the Lord and I cried.  Not since my Mother died have I received such a gift. Oh dear, I am going to cry again.  My Mom would have helped me with all of this and I would not be here on Gofundme.  She is the only family member that did not judge me and the only human that truly loved me unconditionally.  Okay, it is cry time.  
When my Mom died I felt such a void that it made the Grand Canyon look like a pin-dot.  There is not a day that has past since her death that she has not been in my thoughts.  I believe she is my Guardian Angel and also a Guardian Angel to all of her grand-children and great grand children.  I just know that I know.  Brenda, you made me cry and thank you very much for helping me heal.
 It is over whelming in a good way the love that I am receiving, and it has played such an amazing energy of healing too.  

Love you all!
"I love you no matter what!"
For my Mom.

Session- FOUR Hbot Treatment- I did something different.

I did something very different from the past three treatments.  It is no secret that the first 7 minutes is a pain that has caused me to question, "If I can do this?"  And knowing the pain stops has kept me in the chamber.  However I do not like this pain, it really hurts!

Before I left to go to my appointment I did my normal routine.  I had a Isalean Protein Shake, a A.M. multivitamin pack and an ounce of Ionix supreme.  I also had completed drinking16 ounces of pure water.  All this takes me to my next decision.  I am ready to go and I am afraid because I had such a horrible weekend.  I had fours hours of paralysis's yesterday and I am scared.  Scared and second guessing my choice to not use the DMD 'disease modifying drugs'  that by the way cost up to $15,000 a month and causes secondary health challenges too, like liver damage.  My whole objective is to fight Multiple Sclerosis with Isagenix and Prayer and Happiness and now Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.  Well, I did this day different, I prayed of course!  But before I left my home, I took a Excedrin Migraine and a generic over the counter all day allergy pill.  Remember the pain is in the sinus cavities and the right ear where my ear drum was ruptured.  Jen Ann spoke to me about this and she identified it as a 'eustachian tube dysfunction.''  Jen Ann, is another friend who has missed summer due to health challenges and wakes up after dark because the sun has set.  Lets face it, we walk like Zombies and only come out at night like Vampires.  Because, the sun burns us.  My daughter said maybe Zombies and Vampires were created from some one with Multiple Sclerosis?! I have to laugh at the irony and yes,  Multiple Sclerosis is a Monster.

It was amazing and all I could think of was how amazing it was. ''Thank you Excedrin Migraine and Equa line OTC all day allergy...'' Then it appeared for about two minutes I felt the sharp pain in my ear drum, but I did not feel it radiate out to the jaw, the cheek and brow, the neck, the whole right side of my head and neck. I did not feel this, even though I knew it was happening.  I CAN DO THIS!

Before I entered into the chamber, I was slurring my words and unbalanced, and well pretty much the way I have been since June.  But today after 90 minutes, I stood unassisted and I was able to talk clear.  Not my best voice, but better!  Dr Matt is very happy and amazed.  I told him today about my ear drum being ruptured decades ago and confessed I took drugs before leaving my home..  Hey, he is learning too.  I go back again tomorrow.

Thank you everyone I love you!

Thank you Natalie Kahn Aguilar from www.moonwise.net

Gofundme ....  Help me Annihilate Multiple Sclerosis!

Personal note

Monday afternoon I fell into a deep exhaustive sleep and a bit of melancholy.  Why does it happen?
My legs were paralyzed for 4 hours and I laid in the bed, and like a long plane ride, I chose to close my eyes. I slept hard and when I woke up it was going on 8:00 pm. It was a challenging weekend for me physically and mentally and  Monday afternoon.  I absolutely hate that M.S. not only affects me, but my family too.
It should have been an enthusiastic and fun weekend because my youngest grand daughter turned four years old today, September 15th.  But instead I stayed home. I looked at photos and watched a video from the cell phone from Saturdays birthday party with her peers.  Depressing for me for sure.
I am going in for my 4th and 5th Hbot this new week. Tuesday and Wednesday.  Keeping faith that I am doing the right thing. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is outside of the box medical treatment for Multiple Sclerosis, I have to try. right?

I am a OUTLANDERS fan.  If you are too, let me know.
I made this for the #outlanderswedding that is this Saturday. And it is also my oldest grand daughters birthday too.  Charli will be 16 years old this Saturday.

Christina, Don't get lost in the DIAGNOSIS!
Christina, Don't get lost in the MEDICINE
Christina, Don't get lost in the STATISTICS
Christina, Don't get lost in what somebody else did about it.

 Stop looking for anything other than your MENTAL and EMOTIONAL state of being!

And when you get that, then it doesn't matter what diagnosis has been given to you - it doesn't matter - it's temporary. 

''Don't get lost in the diagnosis, the medicine, or in the statistics about what somebody else did about it. If you don't feel good, it's because you're not thinking in a way that allows the Energy to flow. You could just get really, really mad at someone you love and make every muscle in your body stiff. And you would ask,"Why does my body feel this wa...y?" And we say, because you've had a Vibrational tug-of-war going on...Stop looking for anything other than your mental and emotional state of being as answers to why you feel how you feel in your body. It is all Vibrational - no exception! And when you get that, then it doesn't matter what diagnosis has been given to you - it doesn't matter - it's temporary. ---Abraham''

I am not afraid to die.  I am afraid of leaving my babies behind.  Seriously, who am I?
I have prided myself.  My babies will be fine.  This gives me comfort knowing they will be fine.  Isn't it what we want?  Healthy, Beautiful, Happy, Independent, Successful Children
and Grandchildren.  It is what I want.  I love you.

The so-called ‘psychotically depressed’ person who tries to kill herself doesn’t do so out of quote hopelessness or any abstract conviction that life’s assets and debits do not square. And surely not because death seems suddenly appealing. The person in whom Its invisible agony reaches a certain unendurable level will kill herself the same way a trapped person will eventually jump from the window of a burning high-rise. Make no mistake about people who leap from burning windows. Their terror of falling from a great height is still just as great as it would be for you or me standing speculatively at the same window just checking out the view; i.e., the fear of falling remains a constant. The variable here is the other terror, the fire’s flames: when the flames get close enough, falling to death becomes the slightly less terrible of two terrors. It’s not desiring the fall; it’s terror of the flames. And yet nobody down on the sidewalk, looking up and yelling ‘Don’t!’ and ‘Hang on!’, can understand the jump. Not really. You’d have to have personally been trapped and felt flames to really understand a terror way beyond falling.  -- Novelist David Foster Wallace

Prayer Warriors - SOS -I know in my heart that Multiple Sclerosis can be released.

I have my next Dr appointment on Tuesday and then again on Wednesday next week. Then I don't know how I will continue to do the daily treatments? I have set future appointments for every Wednesday; but I am required to go every day.  I do not have the funds to do this.  No funds.  Selling Isagenix to cover my personal cost in nutrition for eight years has not created enough funds to pay for therapy. I have always said that if Isagenix didn't offer a referral fee, I would still choose, Isagenix.  I know that had I not did their nutritional cleanse eight years ago I would be in a long term care facility and on the liver transplant list!  Isagenix Nutritional Cleansing,  saved my liver.  Liver damage from Multiple Sclerosis DMD. Disease Modifying Drugs.  

I know in my heart that Multiple Sclerosis can be released.

Artist: Tom Peters.
This cartoon is how I walk.  My right arm and hand spasms and fist up. My right leg steps high so I don't trip from my right foot. And sometimes I drag my right leg around like a wet log.  I joke about it.  Calling it the MS Zombie walk.  But it is not really funny at all. It is painful.  It takes a lot of energy too.   I have not ever been so public about my MS challenges, ever.  I usually sit at home quietly and post only happy positive messages to the cyber world.  But I am tired of being sick and tired.  And I have tried building wealth and it created enough to pay for my products.  I also get so depressed if  I compare myself to another .. I cannot do this. It spirals me down as fast.  And I am way past the ''blame game.'' Or the "I wish" conundrum.  I am fighting with honesty and raw vulnerability and using all the resources available ..and I fear I am losing.  The Multiple Sclerosis has not released.  So I ask for Prayers. I ask for WHOLE HEALING and I am NOT GIVING UP.

Fear of Loss is the #1 motivator to Act. I am doing what I can do!
And I am asking for Help.

The Good Old Days

They used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families used to all pee in a pot & then once a day it was taken & Sold to the tannery.......if you had to do this to survive you were "Piss Poor"
But worse than that were the really poor folk who couldn't even afford to buy a pot......they "didn't have a pot to piss in" & were the lowest of the low
The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperature isn't just how you like it, think about how things used to be. Here are some facts about the 1500s:
Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May, and they still smelled pretty good by June.. However, since they were starting to smell . ...... . Brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odor. Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting Married.
Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man of the house had the privilege of the nice clean water, then all the other sons and men, then the women and finally the children. Last of all the babies. By then the water was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it.. Hence the saying, "Don't throw the baby out with the Bath water!"
Houses had thatched roofs-thick straw-piled high, with no wood underneath. It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all the cats and other small animals (mice, bugs) lived in the roof. When it rained it became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof... Hence the saying "It's raining cats and dogs."
There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house. This posed a real problem in the bedroom where bugs and other droppings could mess up your nice clean bed. Hence, a bed with big posts and a sheet hung over the top afforded some protection. That's how canopy beds came into existence.
The floor was dirt. Only the wealthy had something other than dirt. Hence the saying, "Dirt poor." The wealthy had slate floors that would get slippery in the winter when wet, so they spread thresh (straw) on floor to help keep their footing. As the winter wore on, they added more thresh until, when you opened the door, it would all start slipping outside. A piece of wood was placed in the entrance-way. Hence: a thresh hold.
In those old days, they cooked in the kitchen with a big kettle that always hung over the fire.. Every day they lit the fire and added things to the pot. They ate mostly vegetables and did not get much meat. They would eat the stew for dinner, leaving leftovers in the pot to get cold overnight and then start over the next day. Sometimes stew had food in it that had been there for quite a while. Hence the rhyme: Peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold, peas porridge in the pot nine days old. Sometimes they could obtain pork, which made them feel quite special. When visitors came over, they would hang up their bacon to show off. It was a sign of wealth that a man could, "bring home the bacon." They would cut off a little to share with guests and would all sit around and chew the fat.
Those with money had plates made of pewter. Food with high acid content caused some of the lead to leach onto the food, causing lead poisoning death. This happened most often with tomatoes, so for the next 400 years or so, tomatoes were considered poisonous.
Bread was divided according to status. Workers got the burnt bottom of the loaf, the family got the middle, and guests got the top, or the upper crust.
Lead cups were used to drink ale or whisky. The combination would Sometimes knock the imbibers out for a couple of days. Someone walking along the road would take them for dead and prepare them for burial.. They were laid out on the kitchen table for a couple of days and the family would gather around and eat and drink and wait and see if they would wake up. Hence the custom of holding a wake.
England is old and small and the local folks started running out of places to bury people. So they would dig up coffins and would take the bones to a bone-house, and reuse the grave. When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25 coffins were found to have scratch marks on the inside and they realized they had been burying people alive... So they would tie a string on the wrist of the corpse, lead it through the coffin and up through the ground and tie it to a bell. Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard all night (the graveyard shift.) to listen for the bell; thus, someone could be, saved by the bell or was considered a dead ringer.
And that's the truth....Now, whoever said History was boring?''  Author Unknown

Remembering 9/11 in Honor of our Nation's Heroes

"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and success of liberty" - JFK

To our brothers and sisters in the United States of America: We mourn your tragedy, we share your struggle, and we stand with you in the fight against terrorism. May the memory of the victims be a blessing.

I have been reading my friends Facebook postings and some I want to share.

Steve Dorssom wrote:  On the eve of the 13 year anniversary of 9-11.....its official the president just announced we are going to war...again. Where were you the morning of 9-11 13 years ago? I just returned home from New York on a business trip. I was at the WTC, BOF had a deal going with Capital records, I had a killer job, a 9 month old baby and everything seemed to be going great and then I woke up that Tues morning to numerous phone calls and turned on the TV to watch the second plane hit the WTC. I couldn't believe my eyes. That day everything changed! Lost my job due to downsizing, lost my record deal with Capital records as no labels were signing now and the A&R dept was laid off. I had to build everything again from ground up and it was extremely hard and still is. Now I own my business, my son will be 14 and I got a brand new record coming out on Pure Steel Records. Since that day I vowed to live my life to the fullest everyday, Enjoy my family & friends, live out my dreams and not be scared to do so. No guarantees for tomorrow.

Lisa Thompson wrote: At this moment 13 years ago, millions of Americans went to bed quietly, with no thought that the next morning their world would change forever. That night hundreds packed flight bags they would not open. Thousands slept with loved ones for the last time. One never knows what a new day has in store. Let us live each day to the fullest, and never miss a chance to let those dearest to us know of our love them. So tonight if you have someone in your life that you love, tell them.

James Arnett wrote:  What would you have said, if on 9/11/2001, I would have told you that 13 years later, we would have a president named Barak Hussein Obama as president, a man who grew up as a Muslim in Muslim countries, whose politics were formed by domestic terrorists and Marxists?
A man who supported and funded the extermination of Christians around the world?
What if I told you that this president would stand in front of the TV cameras and voice his denial that the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq (ISIS) was not an Islamic terror group - despite the be headings of journalists and the mass murder of unarmed Christians?
What would you have said if I told you back then that you would support him, even though you nor anyone else really have no idea who he is? Would you think you woke up in the Twilight Zone?"

Steve Wargo wrote: This is a day where we all need to stand as one.
 But, please remember that after 9-11, Ramsey Yousef said
 "The next time we attack you, it will be from within". 
From within our government. From within our borders.
They have had 13 years to put their plan into action.
Step 1 was a mass migration into Europe and the USA.
Step 2 was to place people in high government positions
Step 3 Disguised as Atheists, they are taking away all references to religion in this country, except theirs, which the govt is hell bent on protecting.
Step 4 will be to determine the new date and let all hell break loose.
Step 5 Those missing jet liners ?? Where can they take out 70,000 Americans in one blow? Of course you know.
If you think this can't happen then you're probably one who was freaked out that they took down the towers. Didn't surprise me at all. In 1993, Mr Yousef took a truck full of explosives into the WTC garage and detonated it. When they flew him over the WTC in a helicopter, the FBI guys said "See. It's still standing." Yousef said "Only because I didn't have enough money".
Well, they've had 13 years to infiltrate us and they have a lot more money.
They have teamed up with the Mexican Cartels and they streamed across our southern border.
They weren't stupid enough to try to take us on but they are eating away at our country like a cancer. Mr. Yousef is serving 240 years in prison. That less than a month for everyone who died on 9-11. A small price to pay for his fame.  Slowly, over many years, we are losing.

Chet Wortham wrote: Remembering 911 is for me remembering that we live in a treacherous world. Enemies on every side, some dressed as friends. Trust only in the LORD & Be aware & ready to defend our hard won freedoms from enemies both foreign & domestic!

Governor Jan Brewer wrote:  On Thursday, we pay tribute to the nearly 3,000 innocent lives taken 13 years ago in the worst act of terrorism committed on American soil.

In accordance with my Executive Order 2010-18 (http://azgovernor.gov/dms/upload/EO_2010-18.pdf), I have ordered that flags be flown at half-staff over the State Capitol and all state public buildings and institutions from sunrise until sunset on September 11, 2014. I encourage individuals, businesses and other organizations to join in this tribute.

On this tragic anniversary, we honor the memories of the victims, reflect on the heroism of our fellow Americans and recognize the unfaltering resilience of our nation. We will never forget the brave passengers of United Flight 93; the men and women who lost their lives on the planes and at the World Trade Center and Pentagon; and the first responders who sacrificed their lives to save strangers.

We also should remember the millions of Americans across this nation who came together in prayer, pride and patriotism – standing strong in the face of such evil. Our nation’s response to that fateful day, as well as that of our freedom loving friends and allies who stood with America, is a solemn but important reminder that liberty will always conquer tyranny, and that we must remain vigilant in protecting our values and our people.

This day is a further reminder that terrorism persists throughout the world, as we also remember the four Americans murdered on September 11, 2012, in the barbaric attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Finally, join me in prayer for the members of our U.S. military – past and present – who have served and sacrificed in our nation’s defense, because we know freedom is not free. We forever honor and support our military in their noble and just mission, and we are eternally grateful for their service and sacrifice.

and we must not ever forget

SESSION THREE #HBOT Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Annihilate Multiple Sclerosis

ANNIHILATE!  That is the first thing Dr. Matt said to me as I entered the facility. Of course he was rewarded with the biggest cheesiest grin!  I also was making this session really count and I did not bring my cell phone into the chamber.  No chamber photo's today.  In fact, I left all things out, except for me and positive thoughts. I meditated on healing thoughts and affirmations and prayers of gratitude for everyone of you. And everyone who has helped me financially for this out of the box medical treatment.  I laugh every time I say that, ''out of the box'' because, I am climbing into a tube.

I experienced the same challenge with the stabbing pain in my right ear and lower jaw and down my neck across my eye and under it.  It really hurts.  But it is temporary and I focus on this, that the pain does stop.  Dr. Matt says that the therapy should help with this sinus issue and I think I have had this for four decades. I mentioned in a earlier post that I actually had a dentist remove one of my molars on the right side to alleviate a chronic toothache, and that was a mistake, since it did not work!  I still get tooth aches where this is no tooth. A few months later, I read in the MS magazine that it is a common complaint and people make the mistake of extracting their teeth.  Oh jeeze.  One of the important things that I am doing is drinking a lot of water all day. I am also drinking two ounces of Ionix Supreme every day, instead of one ounce that is recommended on the label.  Maybe I should dab a cotton ball with Ionix Supreme and put in my right ear?  In 1972 my right ear drum was ruptured and I am guessing this is why I have this challenge in the Hbot chamber with my right side and not my left.

As I type my whole right side, from head to toe is reacting and I work past the chaos.

 "I am healing, I can feel that I am."

A friend asked me how the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy works on Multiple Sclerosis and there is a whole book written on the topic, which I have not read, but recently heard about it.  And on my gofundme site I have posted a YouTube video from the same Miracle Doctor who opened his office to heal his patients.
"Believe in the promise of each new day and the healing, hope and beauty a single moment can hold."

Today's treatment was paid in full by my friend Gail Levine and her boyfriend, Frank Gleason.  I have only met Frank once!  What I know about Frank is he teaches at the Catholic Faith Community where he lives and has children in college.  And my friend Gail, she is a visiting Special Education Teacher, and I know she does not have many students this semester, and she is paid per student, and she has a daughter in high-school. But she insisted on giving too.  They live 100 miles apart and yet have managed to have an adventurous long term relationship, forever.  I know Frank is a keeper, because Gail would not allow any other kind in her daughters life.  So where am I going with this?

Frank and Gail thank you so much for the beautiful card, your prayers, your amazing love and support.  I cried and laughed heartily at your AMS Challenge Videos and I cried again when I got your card. I hope it is okay that I took photos and that I have posted them on my blog.  If it is not, please tell me and I can easily remove them.

I love you all!

"Believe in the promise of each new day and the healing, hope and beauty a single moment can hold."


Thank you Frank and Gail

Thank you Frank and Gail ...

Day After Session Two--- Hbot--- Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

I woke up less clumsy, I woke up!  I am sniffling and my ear is draining clear liquid, as if I had ear water from swimming.  I still have layers of bags under my eyes, and I made a joke yesterday that if I had more bags I was going to go shopping.  I actually do not like shopping.  But if   When the MS is annihilated, I bet I will love shopping!

My speech is intermittently improving.  Yesterday afternoon, 4:30ish, I was talking to Gail. During this conversation, two things were incredible.  For starters, I was a wake and not in a coma nap!  This is astounding!
While talking to Gail my voice went from slurring and long pauses between my words, to my healthy voice!  I heard my voice, that old familiar sound from June of 2014. It sounded odd to me!  I said, "Gail, my voice, my voice, my voice!"  She was just as excited as I was.  So she calls Natalie for me, and I said 'HELLO' to Natalie in my healthy non emmesseee voice.  She recognized it instantly.  As we all celebrated this success and as the minutes passed.
 I felt it.
As if there was an invisible I.V. dripping into my body  liquid lead and some MEGA inducing chronic fatigue creature sucking the life out of me. I felt my energy bar going from a 5 to a 1 to a disconnect.  And I literally shut off.  Out.  Like someone took the batteries out of me and I could not do. How I breathed? I do not know? I was out. When I was able to, much later at dark time, I did a text message telling them both I was sorry for hanging up. But not why, they will read this, I know they will.
I could not talk. I could not put the words to my mouth, I could hear me in my head but I was fading fast. This actually happened to me on the set of a pilot, after 12 hours on set, n character.  So I am not angry at myself. I am proud that I was on set for 12 hours!  But it was frustrating for the Director. I have to compliment him for his genuine patience, because he had been on set for like 36 hours.
I felt ashamed of course, and then I was angry, because I was originally told that I would only be needed for 2 hours and yet I stayed an extra 10 hours! It is a learning experience for me, because I was paid for the 2 hours and not the 12 hours.
Back to -way phone conversation, Gail, Nat and I, speculated about the phenomenon.  Was it the cooler weather? After all the high was only 91degrees yesterday.  Was it the ''HBOT'' hyperbaric oxygen therapy? I have had two sessions now.  And I have spent $450 dollars total for the two treatments. And I have 38 more sessions to do.  Actually I have been told that it is a daily therapy like someone with diabetes and daily injections. So I will be buying my own portable Hbot Chamber, I hope ... Gofundme,  right!  Was it the collective of healing energy from my friends?  Absolutely!  I believe it is all of the above, cooler weather, Hbot, friends and Ionix Supreme.  I am winning this.. it is not my first time to be knocked out after all.  It is however, the first time for me to be so public and the first time for me to ask for help.  FEAR of LOSS is the NUMBER ONE MOTIVATOR~  I heard this a decade ago from Dale Calvert in Kentucky.  I have not ever feared anything more than the attacks I have had these last two months. Seriously scared me to act.

I'm not obscenely wealthy, I live paycheck to paycheck and sometimes there is no paycheck. I share this because I received a text message a few days ago that hurt me greatly. It hurt me because what they texted was a real fear of mine.  "A hater is gonna hate"  So I ask that hateful texter.
 "Have you ever met me?''  I am not without feelings just because I am numb. And I wish you well.

I appreciate you 'all'

Session TWO HBOT Annihilate Multiple Sclerosis

My 9:00 am appointment was challenged by the massive flooding on all the streets. Appearantly today was the 100 year flood and up to 6 inches of rain showered the Valley. With two roads closed and detouring all around, while still raining hard enough to use my wipers and the defogger for the car windows.  The schools closed too!  And a big truck showered my car from the depth of the flood,big enough to cover the whole car and blind the visibility. I was becoming flustered and I was only going 20 mph, and I was late arriving! But the staff was very happy to see me arrive safely. It is a good thing I left early, thinking I would be early, right...

I spoke to Dr. Matt about the pain in my right ear and how it radiated over and under my right eye from my first session.  He said it may be from sinus blockage and experiencing the cold symptom is a reaction to this.  He also said if it is to painful, I should not continue.

I kept my mouth shut about the ear drum being broke in the flood of 72.  How ironic that were in the same weather, rain and massive flooding.  We experienced so much rain last night, my empty 9 ft diving pool filled up on the deep end from rain..  My pool needs to be fixed and that is a whole other bag of bones I got to deal with,  because I have to fix me first!

I began the treatment at 9:16 am and stayed in the chamber till 11:00 am.  The first 7 minutes the pain flared up in my right ear and again ran across the right side of my face and down the right side of my neck.  It was chronic! I know because I looked at my cell phone for the time to keep a personal record.  After the 7 minutes, I sighed a huge relief, because the sharp throbbing pain stopped.  This is good for me to know, that the pain stops!  I was asked over the weekend by a person from Facebook what the Dr. set the psi on?  Well today I asked, and the psi is 4.

You want to see what I see when the chamber is being double zipped? 
 Okay, video from the cell phone inside the Hbot Chamber.

This is the reservoir that is to collect rain water, it filled up and flooded onto the road. The Governor of Arizona, Jan Brewer has declared a State of Emergency, it is a lot of rain.  While in the chamber my daughter sent a photo of the grandbabies wading in the water on their back patio, I would post but they're in their underwear.  She also shared a photo of the ceiling that fell to the floor from the rain .. Lots of damage!

Annihilate Multiple Sclerosis Challenge!

I shared the first AMS Challenge Video that Gail made with Dr Matt on my cell phone, and everyone laughed and loved it.  Blown away!  Some did say it was to long. Because about 40 seconds left on the video they had to get back to work. So, I will ask the amazing teenager whom directed, recorded and uploaded the video, if she can edit and make the presentation 2 minutes or less. But if not, this is okay and it is perfect. Do you want to see it?  I crack up laughing, and it is because, I know Gail is crazy.   However, once you know this, then you will know that Gail is ALL HEART!   

Gail did this!  And she posted on Facebook and donated money too! I love her so much. She is helping me and she is one of my besties for supporting me and a major player on my M.S. team. Which is Me, the Dr, and all of you, AND GOD!  
So if you do take the AMS challenge and share your video with me, I will blog it too!  Please do.. It is fun..and people will ask what it is? A MS Challenge!  Annihilate Multiple Sclerosis!

MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS : Day After Day One Hbot Treatment. 09/06/2014

Day After Day One Hbot Treatment. 09/06/2014

I am sneezing, coughing, and have symptoms of a serious head cold.  My neck aches, my head aches, and my throat is irritated. I am feeling very weak from the non stop coughing attacks.  Head pounding exhaustion. And again weary looking and aging from no proper rest since July.
I don't know if the Hbot had a viral person inside it before me?  Or if I am experiencing a normal reaction?

After the first treatment yesterday, I was a bit loopy and fell asleep for four hours in the afternoon. The adventure out of my house, wore me out and depleted all my energy.  I was hoping that after 90 minutes in a Oxygen Chamber I would be feeling amazing.  This did not happen.

I have been drinking Ionix Supreme to help my throat feel better, it is not a cough syrup, but it is a healing elixir that has a lot of nutritional ingredients that will help me heal.  I have been using Ionix Supreme for eight years to assist me with inflammation and stress.

My right ear and jaw are a concern to me since the pain is still aggressively reminding me that I forgot to tell the Dr. that my ear drum was busted in the summer of 1972 or was it 1973?  I really don't remember.  But I remember the blood. I remember the flood.  I remember some.

I told the Dr I have bouts of PTSD "post traumatic stress disorder'' and not giving him detailed information, but it was from that summer and along with a broken ear drum, I was in my first coma.
I told him 2 weeks but I don't know if it was a month or 8 days?  My friend Royce told me I could get the records.. Were talking 40 plus years ago!   It always comes back to bite me.

In the intake interview Dr. Matt asked about my fillings and if I had any.. and looked into my pie hole. Seeing my left side has gold crowns.. My right side has extractions.  Remember the pain on the right side. Well about 5 years ago I had the dentist remove those molars to ease pain.  It didn't work. So if your having tooth ache pain and you have M.S.?  Keep your teeth. It is M.S.
But I have to have my gold crowns removed and replaced with porcelain on my left side.
Apparently all metal fillings are taboo. And logic dictates that since my M.S. symptoms are more intense on my right side and those gold crowns are on my left side..  I was bummed too, because I could have had porcelain crowns, but I chose gold.  My reasoning is, gold keeps value and when I die my kids can take that gold and cash it in.  Dr Matt was laughing out loud when he understood I was serious.

Questions that were asked in the intake.
When did you get your first filling?
How many mercury fillings do you have?
What accidents have you had?
What chemicals and drugs have you been exposed too.
So this all goes back to showing that if you lived in a house built before 1978 you
drank water from lead pipes.  Well I lived in Arizona and everything was lead.
So before I even got a chance to run I was toxic.
Working at Rogers Corporation with the MEK "Methyl Ethyl Ketone"  this had the Doc shaking his head right and left for at least 30 seconds.
I asked Dr Matt about marijuana and he said it was "SAFE."  Wow!
He does not know my history but I almost went to prison for 15 years because I was
associated with pot smokers.  Such a different world we live in.  There are people in prison
today because they had a rolled joint in their car or burnt little 'roach.'
Ahem, no I do not smoke pot, but I am seriously considering it to help with spasms and migraines.

Normal questions,
How much do you drink?  How much do you smoke?  When and how often.
How much water do you drink every day?  I passed this one with a HAPPY Face.

SESSION ONE HBOT Annihilate Multiple Sclerosis

I will be posting updates as I move forward and towards completing the 40 Hbot sessions. Some of you may be interested?
I am unable to climb into the chamber without assistance and I walk like a Zombie dragging my right leg and I have drop foot.  My whole right side of my body including my tongue is  M.S. paralyzed. So yeah, Zombie.
This morning was my first treatment and the pressure hurt my right ear, jaw, neck etc,. and under and over my right eye. I pondered if I could do this? I chose to endure it until I couldn't. Finally the pain subsided and I found a comfortable position inside the chamber and I took this cell phone selfie and I was thinking ''I wish my Mom was alive and with me." Probably not the best thought since I have a fear of feeling trapped. So I psyched my logic in truth. There is a big zipper. A new hashtag #AMS  Annihilating Multiple Sclerosis! I like this plan!
After the 90 minute session, I did not notice any major improvement and I did fall into my ritual coma nap after 3 pm today which lasted 4 hours. I have a headache, more painful on my right side and my legs are heavy and feeling the burn. I was expecting to feel amazing and this did not happen.
Today's visit cost $300.00 cash because it was my first visit and there were intake questions. Next week I go back for two 90 minutes Hbot sessions on Monday and Wednesday. Another $300.00 and I should be going every day but it is what I am able to do now.#GRATITUDE

The weariness of Multiple Sclerosis ..... I am so tired.

This was recorded before the M.S. attacked me I am so glad
I sent a ''Thank you'' Video on my cell phone.
 I did not know I would be using it to Fight MS.

Seriously painful
