Glimpse of Sunshine.

Ghanaian Art.

Last night was pleasant and going to sleep so quickly was brilliant, slept deeply until midday today.

The sun was shining when Richie opened the curtains but there were still no blue skies to be seen, the cloud cover was thinner and you could see hints of blue.

Guess blue skies and sunshine will happen tomorrow for the start of the working week, never my favourite when I worked.

Woken up by arm cramps, where my arms fold inwards over my c hest and clamped there or so it feels.

At the same time my legs spasms, best thing to do then is my arm exercises, sometimes I try to put it off and try relaxing but it is difficult to override those jumbled up MS nerve signals.

Have been doing a lot of thinking about MS and how worrying it is to have a disease where no one knows how or why it happens.

Must be hard for doctors to give pain relief for something that is the result of strange nerve signals about stuff that is not really happening or is it.

The recent CCSVI treatments are very interesting, wonder how so many people develop blocked veins, does this happen because of diet or effects of how we grow our food.

Or could it be linked to pollution, could MS be linked with our use of fossil fuels, horrible idea that MS could be the result.

Apparently MS is also more likely to occur in colder climates, seems that all these things could be true wish I could draw some conclusions from these facts but I can’t.

Wish someone would put together all the variables and research this and perhaps researchers into the causes of MS might be nearer to finding the cause or causes of this devasting disease.

Oh well come as far with that train of thought as I can for now, must take a look no the internet to see if there are new discussions or theories.

I am going to relax now and enjoy the day, feel pleased with myself that I have tidied up my inbox and sent items and also got rid of lots of old favourites in Firefox.

Had saved far too much links and as a result had a very long list indeed which has now been edited down considerably.

Think I will have another edit later and then leave it at that, brilliant bit of work even if I say so myself.

Hi Herrad,

Sending lots of hugs. I also am intrigued when I read about certain illness/disease being in "pockets" of certain areas. Clusters of MS or breast cancer often occur, and it does make you wonder why. The toxins in the water or air, molds in the colder climates....I hope one day someone figures out MS, it's so dreadful, like you describe, having no answers as to why it is, makes it frustrating to say the least.

Hugs to Spike, who I hope is healing quickly!

Hi Kelli,
Thanks for your visit and kind comment.
I have been thinking alot about the possible causes of ms recently.

Hi Robert,
Thanks for thinking of me and for your visit and comment, nice to see it.

Hi S.S-O,

Thanks for the virtual sunshine, it has been nice here for the last two days.
Hi Stephany,
Thanks for coming by and leaving your comment.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if someone found out why ms and other progressive diseases occur.
I think pollution, methods of cultivation, excessive use of fossil fuels all play a part.
Spike is doing very well thanks.

Thanks everyone for coming by and leaving your kind comments.
Lovely to see your comments.
Have a good day tomorrow.
