I was inspired by Marion and I remember, what it was like for me, two years ago. Yes, it was pretty much on the exact day, I first heard about these three fateful letters. Unsuspectingly, I went to the hospital, on St. Nicholas Day two years ago, where I had … >>>>>>>
The You came on a Thursday and after I realized that I would not get even with you I wished for someone to tell me where to go.
Now I’m not a private patient of the alliance insurance (which has someone on the side) but only a patient of the … >>>>>>>
Brocade cushions and other aids
The other day I read another post where the patient/family refused a permanent catheter, but the affected patient was at serious risk of falling.
Why is this so? Why risk a fall where I could break who knows what? I can understand why people are … >>>>>>>
I have the studydrug. Finally. Now, new questions are coming up. Is this the medicine or a placebo? Is everything coming too late? A year ago would have been good. Because, according to the study doctor, at best it slows down the progress or if everything is going super well … >>>>>>>

By chance I’ve been left without a doctor. My family doctor has unfortunately passed away, my neurologist on maternity leave and my home hospital is closing the “Neurology” department. In addition to that my physiotherapist is also gone and I get a new one, recently my very dedicated speech therapist … >>>>>>>
Home again after 5 weeks of rehab. A mountain of post and the SIPPA drinking cups – a cup for all with swallowing issues, newly developed by a Start Up Company – are waiting for me. I find it worth supporting Sippa and also impressive that young people are busy … >>>>>>>
It’s almost a year since I got my diagnosis, I’ll never forget that day. A year ago I had “my last unconcerned moments”.
I’m writing this now, to be a little closer to newly diagnosed patients, to provide some assistance to them and to show, that the earth is still … >>>>>>>
We all don’t like to talk about it, but we all die. All of us. And dying healthy is stupid, dying sick with MSA is stupid. A meteorite on my head in old age (what is old age?) would be great…
To deal with the topic, one’s own way to … >>>>>>>
