Heads up. Head cold time!

I should have known.  My sinuses have been stuffed up for a few days, and I couldn't drain them into a tissue.  Sneezing like crazy over nothing.

The most important sign went right over my head.  Even in bed my left foot felt pinched.   Almost as if I wore a stocking that was too small.  At the toes, especially, I had that weird feeling of having stepped on something both sharp and wet.  Or maybe cold.

A fever.  The sure sign of a fever.  The MS symptoms are coming back.

Its quite a testimonial to Copaxone that I no longer catch on as quickly.  Instead, I was puzzled, but too busy to work it out.

Now I not only have a head cold, but I also can feel the MS creeping up my left leg and causing trouble with my left arm.  I can even feel the ring around my left eye.

I have been very careful to cover my head and neck when walking Sarah, my beagle.  Otherwise I would probably have neuralgia to boot.

This time I am trying Zicam, albeit a little late.  I'm scared of the MS relapsing.

One step backwards

Weeeeeellll.  I don't have the stick-to-itiveness to keep submitting my manuscript.  It may be all the rejections or it may simply be the Seasonal Affective Disorder: either way, I've had enough for now.  I have begun handing out my best chapters for feedback.  These are the ones with either dialog or action.

I need some good feedback for a while.
