Overheated

If you’re battling MS, there’s a good chance you already know that summer heat is a bummer. Personally, when I start to get overheated my optic neuritis gets worse, causing me to lose vision — or even get double vision. It’s not that the heat is causing new lesions; it just makes lesions you alreadyContinue reading “Overheated”

The Mike Herrera Hour

I have been a huge fan of Mike Herrera since way back…1996 way back. Mike is the lead singer of MXPX and Tumbledown. He is a talented musician and producer that also runs Monkey Trench Studios. For MS Awareness month I was lucky enough to sit down and talk with Mike on his podcast, The MikeContinue reading “The Mike Herrera Hour”

The Ink Master

October 23, 2013 I was scrolling through my twitter feed when I saw that Oliver Peck was in town hangin’ with his buddy Mike Herrera. I totally sent him a fan girl tweet about being in my hometown. I was stoked when he invited me to join them at one of the rad local bars. My awesomeContinue reading “The Ink Master”

It’s finally here!! In March we flew down to LA to be a part of a really cool project called Knowledge Is Power. It’s a 9 part video series that’s meant to help people who are newly diagnosed with MS find some answers. We had an awesome time shooting these videos and we made aContinue reading “Knowledge Is Power”

Learning to fly

I’m fighting a wicked battle of blogger’s block, so forgive me for slacking off recently. Can I claim procrastination as an MS symptom?! Life has been full to the brim; full of awesome things…and a few not so awesome things. The awesomest of all, Meg left her job at mywedding.com! It’s been a long timeContinue reading “Learning to fly”

GENETIC PREDISPOSITION

“Some researchers theorize that MS develops because a person is born with a genetic predisposition to react to some environmental agent that, upon exposure, triggers an immune-mediated response.” – National MS Society William (Bill) Kalbach Jones was my great grandfather and he had Multiple Sclerosis. He was a civilian working in the Puget Sound Navel ShipyardContinue reading “GENETIC PREDISPOSITION”

FUCK IT, BE FREE (NSFW)

If I cannot physically do what society deems “MANLY” does that make me less of a man? It was Fathers Day and Solstice; Meg and I were getting out of the shower and the sun was pouring in through the skylight. I saw that creative spark in her eyes when she asked if she couldContinue reading “FUCK IT, BE FREE (NSFW)”

Afternoon at Sandy Beach

When the tide is out at Illahee State Park you can head south down the beach and find a hidden gem called Sandy Beach. Sandy Like the name says it’s sandy, very sandy. Stuff like this being 5 minutes from our house is exactly why I love the PNW. This was the spot to jump off theContinue reading “Afternoon at Sandy Beach”
