Watching Olympic Marathon Trials

MissyFoy -

Monday, February 15, 2016 I actually watched the end of the men’s and women’s marathon trials races on TV Saturday.  I wasn’t sure if I could handle watching.  Ever since this neurological disease has knocked me down, it’s very hard to watch people run.  For a while, I couldn’t even stand to see someone running […]

When it feels like I’m drowning in bad news ….

MissyFoy -

Tuesday, December 15, 2015 Well, it was exactly one year ago yesterday that my first sacral fracture happened.  The bone marrow edema had already begun, but I was not aware of it and neither was my doctor … because even though I said I thought I had a sacral stress fracture from the CellCept (the only […]

A Day in the Duke Neuro Sciences Clinic

MissyFoy -

Tuesday, February 3, 2015 I had a follow-up visit yesterday in Neurology at Duke for this whole new Stiff Person Syndrome problem with which I’ve been diagnosed.  It was a long day, but that’s how it goes with this I’m learning.  Clinic visits still feel a bit awkward for me right now.  I don’t want […]

Learning to Live with Stiff Person Syndrome

MissyFoy -

Thursday, January 15, 2015 So, that is what this thing is called:  Stiff Person Syndrome.  Weird name for a weird disease.  I don’t want to have this.  I want it to go away and never come back. It scares me.  I scares my husband.  It scares the rest of my family.  I was running (and […]

A New Year, a New Level of Optimism?

MissyFoy -

Friday, January 2, 2015 The is me and my friend/neighbor, Boston Lisa, waiting for the new year to arrive the other night.  There’s a long story behind her nick-name, but I won’t bore anyone with that. We all got together to ring in the new year and to pay our respects to one of our close friends, […]

The Blog Post I Never Thought I’d Have to Write

MissyFoy -

Tuesday, November 25, 2014 I’ll start out with something on the upside: I got my first ever pair of LuluLemon running capris and although Bob thought the large side pockets were ideal for a phone, I was thrilled that I could fit an entire honey bun in the pocket!  The response from one friend of […]

Getting Ready for 100 Miles

MissyFoy -

Monday, March 24, 2014 In less than two weeks, I’ll try to run my first 100 miler.  The operative word here is “try” because I truly don’t know if I’m going to be able to run that far.  I’ve run some 50 milers, but 100 miles … well, it’s a long way. So, how exactly […]

Getting back to basics

MissyFoy -

Wednesday, July 11, 2012 Last week I was at the Children With Diabetes’ Friends For Life conference in Orlando. Well, first of all, Orlando in July is sooo not fun with the heat and humidity, which is evidence by itself of how important I think that conference is! It’s been a while since I went […]
