buh AA! How did I get so lucky that both my scooters were out of commission at the same time? Just my luck…I won’t bore u with the details but let’s just say that for a few weeks, I was afraid to drive:
* Bumblebee for fear that I turn the handlebar to go right and he went straight.
* Soca Scooter because he might have just stopped working mid-scoot… just writing about it is giving me chills. With no warning one day, he just wouldn’t start moving. Luckily I wasn’t alone and was close enuf to my car to get in and head home 😳.
Bumbleebee I knew was going to be an easy fix, and happy to report that he is back in business. SS is another story. I actually know what’s wrong but it’s not an easy fix so I have an appointment to take him to a local repair shop in 2 weeks. Perfect example of “when it rains, it pours”. There is good news though. My hibernation period started a couple weeks ago, so I have not gone stark staring mad because I couldn’t go out the road on SS. Had this happened in September/Octoberish, we would be having a completely different conversation.
i really hope that the cost of repair is reasonable because I’m not ready to give him up. Spree said, “oh no that can’t be…it’s your “ride or die” scooter”. She was right…we’ve been thru so much together and between the two of them, I definitely feel more comfortable on SS – he’s more stable, he’s faster and then he’s just more appropriate for some things. Anyhoo, stay tuned for news on that.
In other news, my primary care physician is open to adding me to the medicinal marijuana registry for GA. The thing is that I find that he is really dragging his feet. If he doesn’t come thru, my Plan C is to (unfortunately) leave the MSCA behind and look into becoming a patient at Shepherd. There is a doctor there who is a huge advocate of MS patients’ use of it. If I can become his patient, things can move along. I would hate to have to resort to Plan C but a gal has to do what a gal has to do and if the MSCA has decided as an institution not to pursue it as treatment for their patients, I eh vex but if I can become a patient of someone who will, it’s a no brainer to me. One time years ago, I smoked some weed to see if it would help my spasticity at all and it did. I don’t know for sure that the medicinal marijuana (CBD Oil) will help me, but I’m willing to give it a try. With any luck it will and it’ll also lead to a decrease in dosage of (or even completely eliminating) the muscle relaxant pill I currently take. Yet another reason for you to stay tuned.
Ok…that’s it for today; remember you hadda come back for all my updates 😉
