What do you do when you realize you've forgotten something you can't live without?My checklist was ticked off like a regulator clock yesterday. That I even made a checklist is telling of the many layers of this trip: I’ve got three currencies, two European capitals, and America’s “Second City” ahead of me in the next nine days.

First I'm off to Dublin to spend the night before taking a nine-hour flight across seven time zones. I’ll be speaking at the HealtheVoices conference in Chicago, a gathering of about 100 health bloggers from across a wide spectrum of health conditions. Then it's off to meetings in London.

Laundry finished – tick

Bags packed – tick

Dog sitter sorted – tick

Train ticket booked – tick

Dublin overnight hotel confirmed - tick

The title of my presentation to the bloggers is “Non-Virtual Reality: Taking Your Advocacy Efforts Offline.” I’ll be talking about the concept of taking advocacy from the blog page into the real world. Everyday Health is cosponsoring the event, and I’m excited and honored to have been asked to speak.

Bed early, decent night’s sleep, early alarm - tick

Shower – tick

Car loaded – tick

Say goodbye to the dogs – tick, sniff, sniff

Under way for the train station (early even) – tick

Once on the train, I check e-mails with a cup of tea and a lovely scone, and run through plans for an evening in Dublin before I fly out in the morning: Rest, mainly, and maybe Chinese for dinner, as we don’t get that much of it in our little town.

Hand-to-forehead: MY PASSPORT!

Word problem: If I’m on a train traveling east at 110 kilometers/hour, and my passport is sitting on my desk at home, how long will it take me to reach Dublin, turn around and travel back to collect said document, and then get back to Dublin? *Hint*: The trains don’t run often or late.

So my new vocation of international circuit speaker isn’t getting off to a particularly illustrious start.

Just like anything else related to multiple sclerosis (MS), I’ll figure my way around this little self-inflicted bump. At least it will make for a good story if not a good night’s sleep.

Wishing you and your family the best of health.

Cheers,

Trevis
