We got my blood-work in from Dr. Brouse. We've only gone through a few of the 70+ tests that were ran, and I think I'm going to have my primary care Dr. go over them with me just so my head doesn't explode. That said, we know that my blood is really high in Iron, and that needs to be looked at further. There were some other things that need further investigation, but I do not remember what they are right now.

As far as how I 'feel', which I get asked a lot (and thank you for caring enough to ask), it varies from day-to-day. There are harder days and easier ones, but not too much variance between the two. I still work out fairly often and Marsha (the trainer who helps, and has helped, me for the last year or more) still pushes me (one day a week), but can oddly tell when enough is enough. Thanks to all of you who ask.

For those who may think I tire of answering all kinds of questions, I can only say this: MS affects about 1:1000 people in the U.S. To me that is a staggering number for something we know very little about. If my having MS makes it where people want to start talking about this, great. We need people who are concerned about this and who may be willing to throw five bucks to the next MS walk or bike ride so more research can be done. :)
