And how was YOUR week?

Well, I did have some kind of impact on people at work for MS Awareness week! On the last day of the work week I wore a shirt in bright orange that has "MS Bites!" on it. Of course, no one really asked me about it, and there were a couple of odd glances my way. However, I do "Look so good!" so it doesn't surprise me that no one asked.

And really, how do you ask that? everyone, but EVERYONE knows I was gone in Dec of 08 looking like death, but only a few people actually know I have MS at work. I don't really worry about losing my job, since my bosses know, but sometimes I do wanna yell "I HAVE MS AND MY BRAIN IS MELTING!!" to shut whiners up. I mean, honestly!

So I felt like I did some good, and has some posters and brochures from MSFocus up, wore my orange, and basically was open for discussion. However, it was also the first week I was back at classes,, so I'm sure I could have done more. sigh!

OK, now to get to writing the disability issue paper I'm supposed to be giving in 2 weeks! At least it should be fun-- House and John Callahan as manipulators of the "Able" view of the
Disabled for fun and, of course, profit!

MS Awareness Week!

I keep hearing the song from Madagascar in my head: "He like to move it, move it..."

Well, we'll see if we end up with the kind of awareness that Susan Komen must have dreamed of accomplishing (and DID!) for breast cancer. I'd love orange to be the new pink! Or, at least share some time with pink...

"I like to move it, move it..."
