A quick look at how I am doing 8 months after receiving my stem cell transplant for multiple sclerosis in Mexico. On a more personal note I found the Mexican people to be much more inviting and kind than most Americans I have met. But Build That Wall number 45! Mexico only gets most of their corn from America you just put a lot of farmers out of business. Go number 45!

I am always sick as my immune system grows new antibodies. However ,it is getting less and today I don’t feel like I have a cold. It has been an up-and-down roller-coaster of my multiple sclerosis being better, than my multiple sclerosis being worse, and back and forth over and over again. But that’s exactly what’s supposed to happen. My bladder and bowels finally do work. That alone is a miracle. You guys have always worn underwear but trust me wearing depends sucks all the time. But now I get to wear that wonderful breathable cotton underwear. In December it will be my 1 year and I’m sure I will see even better results after one year. That is one I can get my MMR and chicken pox vaccines. For now I just have to be patient and wait for my white blood cells to divide and grow stronger. I am having a new life party in October in Binghamton and I looking forward to that. I am at the start of a new life. It’s kind of weird I always knew I died of complications due to multiple sclerosis. Now I have no idea how I’m going to die. And I think that’s the way it’s supposed to be. Because it sure makes me feel better. I am on a lot of steroids and still getting some chemotherapy but a very low dose and the steroids do make me a little bit crazy so I’m trying to only stay on my blog site. If you’re ever in the Binghamton area stop by my party Beautiful Dreamer. However I know some of you live in India and turkey and I certainly don’t expect you can make it. 🙂 I can’t wait for the day that I can tell you I’m walking with a cane. I will get there soon. Thanks to all who raised money to get me stem cells. Now I just have to wait. Patience is a virtue.one I dislike very much.

As you all know, I am a terrible blogger. My site is used for poetry and for literature I write. But once in a while ,there are times when all I can do is just speak so I should just write a blog. I just wanted to give you all a little check up on my stem cells. I have not seen too much success yet. I do have more strength. I can stand up now straight. But I cannot walk with a cane yet, because my balance is so bad. Your balance is inside your inner ear and unfortunately ,stem cells cannot correct that. I just have to wait for new neural Pathways to be created by my body. Which will happen, I just do not know when. As far as temperature goes, I have adapted to extreme heat and extreme cold ,do not affect me anymore! Also my bowls, and my bladder almost always work on their own. I am hosting a new life party for myself. Once in awhile it’s okay to be narcissistic. And it’s okay to celebrate life even when it’s not quite as good as you want it to be. So if any of you will be in the Binghamton area please look up the event Beautiful Dreamer and Facebook it is a public event and I’d love to see any of my followers or fellow poets there. Unfortunately most of you live in other countries so I don’t think it’ll happen but I am offering the invitation. I’m also still always sick as I grow more antibodies for my new immune system. Once I have enough antibodies my multiple sclerosis symptoms will go away much quicker. So the good news is stem cells are working. The bad news is I have to be patient. I dislike that virtue very much. I want what I want and I want it now! But I just sat around for 6 years and done nothing so I think I can wait a few more for stencils to have its full effect. The good news is it is working. It’s taking its sweet time but it is working. That is all that really matters. No matter who you are or where you are if you are reading this remember to celebrate your life. No matter what path life has taken you down celebrate it anyways. Because you could be a rock. You could be a tadpole. But you belong to the human race. And it is a race I am not going to lose it.

Peace and love Laurelin
