And she just died. I read a post yesterday where a girl I knew posted on Instagram that she was on her deathbed and a few hours later she was dead. I had not met her for a few years but I had been aware of the work she was doing and she was doingContinue reading “She died.”
#RIP #GoneTooSoon #Heartbroken All useless tributes that mean literally nothing once someone has passed. It’s not like he/ she can read the ‘love’, ‘the tributes’, or feel ‘the sadness.’ It makes us feel better, like we’ve done something – but in truth it means absolutely nothing! Yet another life was taken this week- I sayContinue reading “Hypocrisy and Death!”
And with the tensions of the week building, the Multiple sclerosis enjoyed its play ground of havoc! I had dizzy spells, pain everywhere and the added stress kept pushing me in to a deeper, deeper spiral of pain! And suddenly I just stopped. I asked for a moment for my self and Aditya said he’dContinue reading “Pain spirals and magic”
And in a blink of an eye we end January…and before we know it the year will be gone too. And so suddenly I realised I was exhausted! I mean mid-year madness , post monsoon and pre vacation exhausted. That’s when I realised that there was no point.
This year had so much…taught me so much, challenged me so incredibly and blessed me so wonderfully.

Apparently anti-depressants are great for progressive multiple sclerosis…and minimising the attacks. Of course the minute I understood the drugs I was taking I stopped them immediately. Even though this may help MS; I was really worried about addictionContinue reading “Getting off the meds”
And in keeping with the theme of the year Diwali had me with the flu! The Diwali party I went to had me in tears when a guest innocently asked me about my health. I blamed it on over tiredness and far too much medication with almost no food but it spoke to me ofContinue reading “Burn the Old”
The Doc’s appointment was not the easy, breezy, smooth sailing Friday evening I expected… Instead I was given a scary fact check and reminded that despite the fact that I take my illness (Multiple sclerosis) rather lightly, it is a serious illness and I will need to start taking more care of me. And soContinue reading “#BadDay”
Those who know me know I believe strongly in numerology… numbers- the ones I like and especially the ones I don’t like help me make choices between access cards to offices, square footage of my office and even hotel room numbers. But in life, even if all the numbers align; sometimes you have great luckContinue reading “This too shall pass…”
