Sorry. It's been a minute. I could fumble through excuses, life being busy, work stress, yada, yada, but let's just start fresh. Hi, I'm Nora. Let's catch up. There is much to share with you all, but let's just start here: We met up with our MS Running Team, Run a Myelin My Shoes, and… Continue reading Well, hello again.
My sister, Randi, is five years older than me. We fought harder than any two sisters and we loved harder than any two sisters. We have been each other's champions and loved to annoy each other. We laughed and put on shows in our living rooms and made some epic Barbie movies together. It may… Continue reading My Sister
This tree in the parking lot of Kroger took my breath away today. I looked like a weirdo taking 1000 pics. I've struggled with how to put this story into words. If you grew up in a house like mine, you learned never to talk about good news because bad news was usually just around… Continue reading Miracle.

This one is not suitable for anyone about to get their first MRI. I don’t want to unnecessarily fill you with… Continue reading MRI Panic Attack

Don't misunderstand, there will always be people who want to tell you what to do and they won't always be people you trust... Make sure you… Continue reading Control Freak

Home stretch, people. Day 12. Today, I have felt overall pretty good. Had a couple moments of headache/nausea, but they were short lived. Consistently for me, the worst symptom I have experienced is the headache. It was unlike any headache I’ve ever experienced. And at its worst, no medicine I tried helped at all. The… Continue reading COVID Chronicles – Day 12
