    dermatomyositis

    So I spent a week in the hospital, and the docs came to the conclusion that I have an autoimmune system condition, that eats my muscle tissue, I will have flair ups on and off the rest of my life, but will be able to control it with medication. I am grounded from the bike for a few weeks, until we can over come this first and major flair up.

    check out my condition, (dermatomyositis)

    thought about starting a blog to outline my process!

    Yes. It's a relatively rare disease. Sorry to hear about the diagnosis. Best of luck.

    Still in some pain, been off work for a week and a half. Can not ride my bike, or doing anything physical. so I am taking the time to upgrade and tune the bike all up.

    I am about to order some new pedals (crankbrothers, not sure which model yet) Lousi Garneau shoes, Looking at some new Avid Hydralics too. Plus I have order a few new tools and visual things from Ebay.

    I hope to be back onmy bike in a month or so!
