We’ve been watching The Keepers on Netflix this weekend

We’ve been watching The Keepers on Netflix this weekend. It’s an excellent true crime docuseries. Compelling, disturbing, haunting.
The first episode had me wondering if it was going to be good – but after the second episode I couldn’t look away.
We are 4 episodes in and I look forward to watching the final 3 episodes.
It’s not an easy watch but I highly recommend it. It is a story that needs to be heard.

MS attacks the nerves

MS attacks the nerves, so anyone with MS is apt to experience various types of altered feeling or touch.
Some of the most distressing and even frightening symptoms of multiple sclerosis (MS) are sensory disturbances — sensations that can range from numbness to tingling to burning pain. They’re also common.
Because these sensory symptoms are caused by the nerve damage that is a part of MS, anyone with MS is at risk of developing them.
But a range of strategies can help with managing MS sensory issues.
Loss of sensation is experienced as numbness in the affected area or body part.
Abnormal sensations may include:
-Pins and needles
-Crawling sensations
Painful sensations include:
-Hypersensitivity to touch
-Burning sensations
-The “MS hug,” a band-like tightness or girdling feeling in the chest or abdomen that can result from nerve damage or from spasms in the small muscles between the ribs
Lhermitte’s sign, an acute, electric-shock-like sensation running down the spine and into the limbs that occurs when the head is bent forward
Numbness, abnormal sensations, and pain can affect virtually any part of the body: the face, torso, arms, hands, legs, and feet. The symptoms may come and go, or they may come and stay.
“If they’re symptoms caused by old nerve damage, they may flare up during periods of fatigue or illness, and then go away with rest and recovery,” Dr. Lublin says.
Rarely Permanent, but Potentially Dangerous
Corinne Sheh of Maynard, Massachusetts, frequently struggles with such sensory symptoms.
“My first MS symptoms were pins and needles in my legs,” says Sheh, who was diagnosed with MS in 2007 at age 25. “Now I get numbness and tingling in my right hand and a feeling of tightness around my chest — my MS hug.”
Sheh also experiences Lhermitte’s sign.”It feels like a zipper being opened from my neck down my spine,” she says.

These symptoms rarely become permanent, but they can be dangerous. Sensory symptoms in your legs, for example, can cause a fall. Numbness in your hands can cause you to drop things and may put you at risk for being burned by scalding water. Numbness in your face may be dangerous when chewing.
For Sheh, who’s now the mother of a 2-year-old and a 3-year-old, sensory symptoms have presented new problems. “What I worry about most is falling on the stairs or dropping one of the babies,” she says.
Managing MS Sensory Issues
So what can you do? For some symptoms, medication can help. Neuropathic (nerve) pain may respond to anticonvulsant drugs such as Neurontin (gabapentin) or Lyrica (pregabalin), Lublin says. Antidepressants are also sometimes used to treat nerve pain. If sensory symptoms are due to a relapse or to new MS attacks, steroids may help to control them.
Topical capsaicin creams and ointments, which are sold over the counter, can sometimes block painful sensations in the legs, feet, hands, and arms.
Like the symptoms themselves, though, responses to the various drugs vary from person to person.
“I have never found any medications that help with my sensory symptoms,” Sheh says. “I have learned to avoid triggers like stress, fatigue, and hot, humid weather. The best treatment for me is rest and an ice pack. A swim in the ocean or a cool pool also helps.”
Heat may help, too, according to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society: A warm compress may turn painful sensations into warm sensations. Massage is also worth trying.
Some other ways to avoid or manage sensory symptoms include:
Avoid becoming overheated.
Get plenty of rest.
Do your best to stay healthy. Illnesses, such as colds or the flu, are common triggers for MS symptoms.
Wear pressure stockings or a tight glove, which may convert painful sensations to pressure sensations.
Wear a soft cervical collar to prevent Lhermitte’s sign.
Try cognitive behavioral therapy or hypnosis.
Meditate to lower stress and, consequently, distress.
Learning your unique triggers for sensory symptoms may be the best way to manage them. But if you’re struggling with these symptoms, they’re new, or they’re not going away, talk with your MS doctor about possible solutions.

When someone tries to blackmail me later saying

When someone tries to blackmail me later saying – I know what you did last summer , I can certainly see the person in the eye and say with confidence that whatever I did , it didn’t include watching IPL 10 matches , the movie Bahubali or the Republic channel.That is really surprising , for a person like me and even to me.
Maybe I am attaining a different plane of existence and evolving into an enlightened soul, after all. Salvation is just round the corner !

create your own ever changing self

create your own ever changing self
been shot at and missed
been shit at and hit
been called every name in the book
and respond to some of them
been an underdog all my life
wasn’t born with a silver or gold spoon in my mouth
i come from a long line
of coal miners farmers strong men and strong women
nobody owes me or anybody else anything
there are no guarantees
i have no complaints only thanks
and no matter what the odds
i’ll never bow down
i’ll never give up
i’ll forever endeavor
to create my own ever changing self

A little Midrashic wisdom of the sages:

A little Midrashic wisdom of the sages:
“the Midrash describes an ignoramus who entered the synagogue, seeing people studying Torah, he wondered aloud and asked: How can I learn all of this? Those who heard his remark responded, begin with the Aleph-Beis proceed to scripture, then go on to Mishnah and Gemara, upon hearing this he thought to himself, ‘how can I learn so much?’ and left. The midrash offers a parable of a jewel suspended far above the ground. a fool despaired of geting to it, but a clever person brought a ladder , climded up rung by rung, and finally reached the jewel, likewise a fool wonders how can he ever learn the Torah? but what does a clever person do? he takes one step at a time, learning one chapter every day until he masters all of the Torah.” (Devarim Rabbah 30:11). This is a lesson we should learn in learning the Torah. it takes time, and taking it step at a time. chapter after chapter. Just something to consider over the Shabbat my friends, I know it is early or late, but it is one of those sleepless nights, sleep well friends have a peaceful sleep.and have a pleasant preparation day.

Do you know how many people playfully touched jesus.. Some touched him just to Challenge themselves, some touched him to show their friends that they touched jesus… Ladies stared at jesus… Men women..

“It has always been the belief of this storied publication that elected officials and the press have important roles to play in our democracy: namely, that the former sets the policies that guide our nation, and the latter subserviently provides a mouthpiece to trumpet the will and intentions of the ruling class without question and without complaint. We here at The Onion are fully aware that our own reporters, like all members of the power-mad, out-of-control media, frequently overstep these sacred boundaries by scrutinizing the decisions and actions that those in mighty seats of authority, such as Mr. Gianforte, do not wish to discuss. And in such instances, it is important—imperative, even—that those who hold the reins of power put us in our place and punish us, preferably with considerable physical force, so that we never again commit such improper transgressions.”

As the clock struck midnight

As the clock struck midnight… I began my 848th day in recovery-remission from my Substance Use Disorder. But first and foremost… I am thankful #JustForToday!!!
Often times, I feel the urge to look at scripture when I feel the number of days clean and sober may have significance (I know… every day does! Duh!) Today, I found something in 1 Kings that I believe is worth sharing and will bless someone…
“But in that land of exile, they might turn to you in repentance and pray, ‘We have sinned, done evil, and acted wickedly.’ If they turn to you with their whole heart and soul in the land of their enemies and pray toward the land you gave to their ancestors—toward this city you have chosen, and toward this Temple I have built to honor your name— then hear their prayers and their petition from heaven where you live, and uphold their cause. Forgive your people who have sinned against you. Forgive all the offenses they have committed against you. Make their captors merciful to them, for they are your people—your special possession—whom you brought out of the iron-smelting furnace of Egypt.”
