Update: Life & School

All right life has taken some weird turns for me lately, but I am not complaining. If I look back to how I was doing a year ago, I am much better now. A year ago, I was facing a wheelchair on a permanent basis. That scared the hell out of me more than anything has ever scared me in my life; it’s not even close. I am talking I was thinking about suicide and all sorts of crazy things. I’m more than happy to put that part of my life behind me. I started on some new medicine to deal with the multiple sclerosis that torments my body. I take two pills daily and I go in for two rounds of low-dose chemotherapy once every six months. Today, I’m back to reading on a limited basis (my eyes have settled down a little bit). I use the computer and all sorts of electronics to their full potential meaning almost everything is voice activated, I am paying off back bills from when I was first diagnosed, all of this leads me to believe that I can do more than sit at home every day and simply be disabled. I’m looking at returning to school. I think my original idea for school was a little bit too ambitious and that is why I’m setting my sights on a bachelor of arts degree for now. A BA in Communications should qualify me for many different careers, a lot of them are of the “up and coming” career types. Maybe someday I will go back to school and even teach; I’m not going to rule anything out at this point. I can work in journalism mostly from home, although I’m sure I will occasionally have to report to the office. I believe in myself, and that is all that really matters in the end.
