@movingtomadison integrating is so difficult! I wanted people to see me as I was, not as someone with a chronic illness that affected everything. But, now, I realize that these are my friends and they help me when needed.
I’ve also stopped calling the illness, Clippers. To me, it sounds dumb. My neurologist calls it lymphoproliferative disorder but I say I have some lesions on my brain. Then I don’t need to explain.
I work with a therapist, too. She’s been very good in helping me deal with everything. Guess we need to keep on keeping on!

Have you looked into Boswellia? It's anti-inflammatory effects extend to the brain. It's been used to reduce the pressure caused by brain cancer. Combining it with curcumin has a synergistic effect that makes them both even more effective. Also, they don't negatively impact bones the way other anti-inflammatories can.
