my cats, my kids

I thought I'd introduce everyone to my little daily companions. Aside from my loving wife (obviously) the cats make my monday through friday just that much more bearable. They're the definition of laidback which is really a stress-reducer to me. I do love dogs but having a dog really isn't on the cards for me and my wife. Having daily walks would be ideal workout but I tend to tire out quickly especially in the humidity and heat. The cats are ideal little comrades for me, we hangout in the air-conditioning and occasionally play fetch with toy mice. The white and orange cat at the bottom is Picasso he's a shy cat. The middle chubby cat with white paws is Emma she's a rather hungru cat (as you can see) And the 3rd cat, the grey cat at the top is Estrella, she's a rambunctious cat. The cats are important to me and my wife and I really value their companionship especially since they're pretty independant (at times). Comparing dogs to cats when it comes to being companions for the disabled I would definitly go with cats. Dogs are very, very vital & important to the service animal industry for many many reasons but in MY case its just not doable.

a little bit more

aside from trying to tend to this blog I also spend my time addicted to netflix. I would describe myself as a grumpy man, a homebody not by choice obviously I have a "drive"  walker and I wear an A.F.O. on my left leg

I occasionally get dyskinesia in my left leg usually when I'm tired or if I'm overdoing it at physical therapy. As I stated before I'm on tysabri so far it's been going great aside from having fat arms and tiny veins. other than that not too much going on righ now.

More about me

The main web address URL for this blog is really self explanatory, the sub name or header name is life on mars, I'm a fan of the US version of the TV show but more importantly I feel like an alien sometimes both physically and emotionally. I'm currently on Tysabri and its been going well.

I got a feeling..

since I don't have too much to do with my time these days I thought I'd share a little bit about myself and what I go through having MS, I was diagnosed early in 2010. I live in south Florida with my wife and cats. I intend to make daily contributions when time permits and pass along information as I come across it.
