Pimp my ride.

I got this totally retro stationary bike that my friend Sam found abandoned as garbage at his building.

It works good, it just needs some lovin'.

I'm going to repaint it and then add a new seat and some handlebar streamers. I'd add shinies to the spokes, but no one seems to carry them anymore. That's sad.

I have been outside for a while during each of the past two days, and the weather's been around 30C (86F) both days. I haven't lost my legs but I did walk too much yesterday and over-extended my knee, so I went easy today.

In looking back over my symptom tracking, I realize that this new tolerance for heat is related to one or two things. 1. The mitoxantrone has worked its magic and I'm not as demyelinated as I was and/or 2. The large doses of Vitamin D I've been taking for the past month are working to ease my symptoms. On the recommendation of my neuro and based on some clinical research coming out of Ontario, it seems that high doses of vitamin D seem to help with symptoms. I've been taking 2400 IU of vitamin D daily for a month and this is where I am.

I'm frustrated at the progress of my employment prospects and the help I've been offered. I want something to do so badly, I've got myself hooked up in the political apparatus of party politics.

Jumpin' Jeebus on a pogo stick... I need help.

  1. Well now I can't remember exactly what my comment was! First, i looked on ebay for your shinies and neither ebay nor google would even tell me what the heck they are!

    anyway WOOHOO for you! I am so very very glad the vitamin d is having such a positive effect, that is wonderful!!!!!!
