      You inspired and were such an inspiration to a huge group of runners on Daily Mile "before". There are so many people thinking about you and wanting you to get better. May all of that energy have a positive impact!

      KEEP FIGHTING! You can do it! I have a neighbor diagnosed 20+ years ago with Parkinsons (when he was ~20 years old). He lived with that for over 15 years, but then started investigating it and treating himself with some of what he'd learned about Lyme's disease, and once he got hooked up with a great specialist out of KC, he has been healthy for over five years. It can be beat. Take good care of yourself, and do what you can to soothe the frustrated athlete within. She'll come back strong!!

      I have zero input here because I don't use anything, but I am curious why you are asking. I'm *hoping* it's because you want to log miles of some form or another....? Which means I'm hoping this means good things for you???

      OMG Marlene!! I hope they find answers soon!! If you have to ake a step back, I think most everyone will understand. From the posts, I think you have a healthy set of friends/acquaintances here. The primary thing is get well and bug the crap out of the doctors until you get answers. Thoughts and prayers your way :-) (((((positive vibes))))
