I like to share the good stuff and keep the bad stuff to myself. Last week I had battery of tests regarding the thing growing inside my brain and on my spinal cord. Looks like it may have shrunk a tiny bit. The experimental medications I'm taking have given me hope, for the first time in 10 years. I've even got most of my strength back. Amazing stuff, for sure. And for those who always put down Doctors and the VA, I say get a grip. If you have a serious condition, move closer to a VA associated with a top notch medical school(s). I've got St. Louis Medical School and Washington University. I was lucky they were conducting just the right study at just the right time. And another thing, the Docs who do full time research don't get paid squat. We need to pay them more.
