  • Kayaking


    It's been a longtime since I last posted. I stopped posting here because my dx was in question as I had high anti-gad antibodies in my serum which usually is a marker for Stiff Person's Syndrome, but there is no standard treatment for this and have been doing well on Glatiramer Acetate. I have a lot of issues typical of MS such as bowel and bladder dysfunction (I have to self cathetrize) as well as leg weakness. So my DX is still MS as I'm stable on GA.

    Anyway, during early Covid I started taking up kayaking which seems is a good fit as it mostly uses my upper body. I've been paddling with a group who kayaks weekly on the Detroit River. The past summer we kayaked the entire length of the river and one of my partners wrote a story about it which was published in the Detroit News as shown in the link below:

    It was a fun time and kayaking has since become a big part of my life. I've also documented some of my trips on my Youtube channel with another kayaking club I've joined which can be found in the link below:

    I thought I'd share what I was up to. I hope you enjoy.

    Hey Mark!

    Great story about paddling that river! How nice to have a group of similarly adventure minded friends.

    I took up kayaking a few years ago and it’s one of my favorite summer activities. There’s nothing like that peaceful easy feeling of floating down the river … and of course the cooler waiting at the end.

    Thanks for sharing and I hope we get to hear more about your adventures!
