The Myelin Munchers strike again

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!

    Thanks Penelope a ood point. There have been some treatments about myelin replacement but a lot of money can make pigs fly too.

    There are drug trials due to start soon for remyelination. Let’s keep our fingers crossed. I can’t say this to anyone because I don’t want to scare anyone in my same position, but I suffered a break from reality that caused me to be hospitalized for 2 weeks. Let’s keep up the pressure to put at end to this sh** with new medications that really matter. Hooray for remyelination! ☺️

    The Myelin Munchers did some nibbling on me this year. Got the results of my MRI and there were a few new nibbles. I have an MRI every two years, this is the first change since 2007. As horrid as MS can be, I find myself grateful that my body has accepted the drug I have been shooting in me since 1996. Be well, stay strong and take care of you.

    I really enjoy reading these comments because it helps me and my husband understand what our daughter experiences and goes through with MS that hit her about 4-5 years ago. Reading Positive Living has helped us understand what one goes through daily.

    Thank You
