5. Gift of my government. Multiple lesions, both hemispheres.

I got down to where I could not walk, talk or see. Vision came back, my gait is not quite right but I can do four miles and skated in a 5K, speech is a problem (temporary registers got hosed), as long as I don't get too hot or flustered I do well. I choreograph everything and pre-plan talking points. I don't do well with off the cuff conservations. Other than fatigue and the afore mentioned intoxication, everybody's symptoms seem to be different. Some of them can be quite interesting. For a while hot and cold got switched. With the optic neuritis my vision broke up like a satellite digital signal in a thunderstorm. I could not see the Walmart sign painted on the side of the building. When the speech came back I could rattle off the words to songs and all the stuff I memorized in grade school but I could not string three words together in a conversation. It has been an interesting trip.
I asked my Neurologist about a You are the long term study on Ribif. He said, "You are the long term study."
