500th Blog Post

Yep, this is the big five–oh–oh. I’ve been doing this for eight years now, since I stopped working in the summer of 2009.
That first year, I spit out 86 posts, 39 of which were autobiographical and entitled “My MS Story Chapter (one through 39).” That was also the year I started writing about CCSVI, the controversial vein-opening procedure for MS. With the CCSVI posts, I began to gather a significant number of readers, and my growth has only accelerated since then. I can’t count the number of deep friendships and important contacts that have resulted from this blog.
So, a big thank you to all who have stopped by over the years to read my little musings. Any positivity and good feelings I may have inspired with my writing, you folks have returned to me tenfold.
Here’s to the next 500 posts!


  1. Cheers and congratulations! Mitch, I have enjoyed your sharing of your journey with MS with us, though I think you have been leaving out some of the more prickly issues... or maybe the b&b problems don't affect you the same way they do me.

    1. If this were purely an MS blog, instead of a blog where I try to appeal to the broader population, I might delve into those prickly issues. Thanks for your support nonetheless!

  2. Wow congrats! We started about the same time. I was looking for a job, sorta. Something to do with fighting boredom?? It has brought friendships....I need to talk about MS more but ??
