The following is a guest post from my brother and fellow-Liberato, Duncan Thornton.
Two weeks after the procedure, I can say I certainly still have MS: I still have trouble pronouncing certain letters; I still have patches of numbness. But I didn’t want to be treated for CCSVI because I thought my MS would disappear; I wanted treatment because it seemed to offer a reasonable chance of keeping my MS from getting worse.
But for more than 20 years, my most troubling symptom has been cognitive and physical fatigue. Here’s what most days since I got back from Poland have been like:
- Wake up, make coffee for Brenda, make breakfast for the kids
- Do the sudoku and finish my coffee
- Go to my office, get some work done
- Make lunch for the kids, clean up.
- Play with the kids
- Get some more work done
- Make supper, set the table, clean up after supper.
- Go for a walk or something with the family
- Put the kids to bed
- Relax, do CCSVI email and web-stuff
- Read a book for an hour
- Go to bed.
Which is nothing special. It’s just a normal day for most people – but now it’s a normal day for me too.
So I did ask my wife if she will still love me if I’m not pathetic.
“It will take some getting used to,” she said.
