Multiple Sclerosis, Getting Hit By a Bus, Swollen Side, and Vertical Meat Smoker
Posted May 27 2009 11:43pm
I was feeling great the other day, but then I tried to jump into life, oh yeah, I forgot! I am so jittery, and weak today, too much standing I suppose. It frustrates me, megally, that I know going into it that I will pay this price for doing things as simple as spending time with friends. Slept until 10:30, plus took a 2 hour nap, and I still have that disjointed, like I'm not here feeling. I suppose I shouldn't complain, I did get to go.
I need to do a little bit of research about this huge swelling on my side. I've had all the tests, cat scans, MRI, ultrasound, and x-rays, there is nothing wrong, well nothing but this swelling. The nearest to an answer I've gotten is, well it's probably the MS. Is this something that happens with MS? I've had it for years, but I've had MS for years too. Is a total lack of muscle tone that does it, is my stomach shifted to one side? Has anyone else experienced anything similar, or am I unique?
I want to get a vertical, gas fired, wood smoker. I know purests, like my pal at Who are those guys smoke team will shudder at the gas part, but what are you going to do? I was going to modify and old charcoal grill I have to use a gas burner, and a cast iron pot to hold wood chunks, but I'm trying to be smarter about the projects I take on. I want to start smoking some food just because I like it. I want to find goat meat too, but that's another story.
