me+ doctor = science experiment

So I went to see a neurology specialist...which was good and bad. He seems to think I think what I could have thats causing the numbness and pain in my feet, legs and arms could be any number of things....the bad is that none of the things really have a great outcome. I am holding my breath that it is something treatable and curable.

First course of action is a brain and spine scan scheduled for tomorrow. I am rather terrified of this idea, but have been assured that it is the first step in helping me find out whats wrong. He also put me on meds that are to treat MS or spinal cord injuries. So far I don't see a huge difference in pain but I told him I would try it for a little while. The pain has been getting worse all over including my back now over the last two weeks.

In other news...I am addicted to cupcakes...I eat one everyday for breakfast. Some how I don't think it is really helping my diet but o'well.

Lazy Sunday

I decided I would start a new blow for the new year. I am so glad 2009 is over. My year was filled with one struggle after another. 2010 will be much better I am sure of it.

Here are a few of my goals for this year:
1) lose 30 pounds and stay healthy through out the year
2) Switch schools and start working towards becoming a Occupational Therapist for kids with special needs
3) worry less about money
4) Travel more
5) learn how to cook

This is just the small list but it's a start right? I worked out for an hour today so #1 is underway.

I am still having trouble with my feet and legs, so far the leg doctor says surgery will not fix my problem. No one can figure out why at 25 years old, I wake up not being able to move my left foot at all. Doctors have thrown around all sorts of ideas and horrible diseases I may have. Not want I want to hear, let me tell you. All I know is that the pain in my legs and feet is awful and I need a solution. Next doctors appointment is January 14th for a neurologist.

Live, love, laugh
