herbie goes to monte carlo

My globetrotting and uber-fit brother-in-law is running a half-marathon in Monte Carlo in a couple of weeks, in aid of the MS Society - as he mentions on his JustGiving page, he'll be doing a full marathon in Berlin later this year.

So don't go crazy with donations, as we'll be hitting you up for some more later on!

But if you can give a little bit of something he'd really appreciate it a lot.

He really puts so much effort into this kind of thing, training all year round - and a half-marathon will cause him no problems at all.

blogging is bad for your health

Especially the irregular kind, right?

Fortunately not a whole lot has happened recently - when my injections had the final speed-bump up to 44mcg, I felt pretty crappy the day after but that's it really.

HOWEVER I am getting a bit worried that I tend to turn into a complete arsehole the day after my jabs - very short-tempered and depressed. Also, on those days I have no attention-span or ability to concentrate at work - does anyone else feel like that?

I know, I'm only into the third month of treatment so my body could just be getting used to the freaky drugs that are coursing through my veins. Still, I'm waiting for a call-back from the MS nurses as I type.

I've recently been having some conflicting thoughts about the whole MS-blogging-thing. I dunno, but lately I've been thinking "is it good for my health?" Does it do me any good to be thinking about it all the time (difficult to avoid), then coming on here and bitching about "my miserable life" (which is actually pretty wonderful, thanks for asking)?

And, more importantly, does it do any good for anyone who might recently have been diagnosed to trawl the internet (my neuro told me not to go anywhere near a computer until I'd spoken to an MS Nurse), discover my blog, and read me moaning when I'm having an off-day?

Don't worry, the blog title will NOT change, and it's not going to turn into a happy-clappy-Ain't-Life-Grand kind of show.

Just saying, it made me think.

Normal service will resume soon.
