A myelin thief is on the loose

No one knows exactly when it began, but there is a serial kleptomaniac on the loose that seems to only have an interest in myelin: AKA the Myelin Muncher. With all the myelin that has been stolen over the years, you’d think there would be more evidence left behind, but this thief is pretty good at covering all its tracks. It seems to be a professional inside hit job.

Why this interest in myelin? I don’t know. It’s not like you could sell it for a profit. I don’t even think you could get rid of it on the Black Market. It’s an unsolved case shrouded in mystery…the kind where evidence pops up from time to time, yet not enough to lead to an arrest.

It has been speculated that Professor Plum did it in the library with a knife, but then I also heard it was Miss Scarlett in the kitchen with a rope. Rumors have also spread about Colonel Mustard, but at this point they are all just speculation.

The victims: you and I. It seems these myelin thieves are so sneaky that they can break into the Central Nervous System without setting off any alarms. Now that takes skill. It puts us in high alert, code red status at all times, which has a tendency to drain us emotionally and physically.

If you are in the middle of a robbery, hang on. You will get through this. It’s a sad and heart wrenching time, but you will make it. Those who have been robbed in the past can attest to that, but even past victims aren’t safe from future attacks.

It seems that once these thieves have found a way in, they return to the scene of the crime to try again…and again…and again. No one is safe, but don’t let that stop you from living. Stay strong and prove to the Myelin Munchers that you can’t be stopped. Multiple Sclerosis does not win!

    Great thought Penelope it would be good to get it back and refitted to the right nerves. But we know that’s not going to happen. .
    I have had an interesting time with a radiologist and the top urologist about my bladder problems. It’s apparently MS not prostrate, not bladder, not urethra problems, just MS playing with nerves and their messagings. This means in January 2018 I will have a small operation to have an inbuilt cathra fitted. I’ll see what happens.
