November Update – a vaccine in sight?

Thank you Charlotte for posting this link

It sounds interesting but I’m not sure I understand what it means? Can someone out there decipher? Is this technology government owned and up for sale? How amazing it would be to think there might be a vaccine…

November is upon us and I am down with a bug. Funny, I usually avoid these things and just suffer from the parvo stuff, but I am teaching now and know at least one of my students has been out with something similar. I appreciate everyone’s posts. It is so helpful to see that there are things that are helping some of you. We still seem to be dealing with doctors who are behind the times on parvo though and that makes me sad. Please do let us know if you encounter a good doctor who understands the magnitude of what you are going through. They are far too rare.

Do any of you have suggestions on how to survive the coming holidays, along with the social expectations and subsequent feelings of inadequacy and letting others down? That is always a hard one for me. Whenever I think I’ve moved past it, it looms again.

With weather changes usually comes parvo changes too, more joint pain, more fatigue. Please continue to share anything that is helping you get through. I for one, do much better when I can afford a good massage. It usually takes two one hour sessions in a week to make a difference. Unfortunately my insurance does not cover it or I would go more often. Someone needs to lobby for that!

Hope you are enjoying beautiful fall days!
