Storyteller's house Jacob van Lennepstraat, Amsterdam
Had a good nights sleep which was really good until I was woken abruptly with a hell of a spasm and arm cramp at the same time.
Sometimes it all kicks off at the same time and there is nothing you can do except breath in and out and hope it stops pretty quick.
The fact that this disease makes one subject to things happening over which you have no control makes it hard.
It's a real shock that in the midst of all this science and knowledge there is still a knowledge defecit when it comes to degenerative diseases and why they occur.
Was listening to a leading American stem cell expert talking on the radio earlier and he told us that ex president Bush's belief in superstition over science meant research into stem cells was delayed for years.
He hoped that within ten years they would have some answers sadly too late for alot of us.
Real shame I was in the mood for a cure.
So instead moving on in the real world Richie worked his usual magic and massaged the pain down to liveable levels.
That and arm exercises and 3 baclofen tablets and plenty thc and tlc and my chocolate drink did the rest, now I can take on the day.
