Every third Thursday, the neurology practice I go to holds a support group meeting for their MS patients. They typically have a speaker—a specialist from within the practice or someone from the university—give a lecture on some aspect of MS.
It’s usually interesting and I learn something. The only thing I don’t like is that the events are sponsored by a pharmaceutical company so they’re always sure to let us know that pizza, fruit tray and trinkets are provided by XYZ pharmaceuticals. (Uggh, why must *everything* be commercialized?)
Anyway, the last meeting was held the day after that conference I went to in Rochester ended. My own neurologist was giving a lecture on cognitive function and memory issues for MS patients. It was a topic I was interested in and I really wanted to hear what he had to say…
But I freakin’ forgot to go!
