The Routine

The Routine

I’m sure I’ve blogged about this at some point because I don’t do well with disruptions. The days of spontaneous activities have long been gone. I could never just meet someone for dinner at short notice. My life, or I should say my activities, are planned both mentally and physically. Everything I do requires a tremendous amount of effort. Everyday is different as to which activity will put me over the edge. The activity might be the same and the…

My magic button is broken

My magic button is broken

I’ve been chilling in my room as work has begun in my kitchen/living room area. Making things more handicap accessible. Hopefully I will hit less walls with the additional space but I make no promises. Let’s be honest here, my wheelchair driving hasn’t improved. I’m actually waiting once again on a wheelchair repair. This is on the button that was placed on the side that immediately lifted the chair up. My magic button that has been a true lifesaver. I’ve…

Bladder Hesitancy

Bladder Hesitancy

I’ve written so many blogs about my numerous “accidents” but I never discuss the other way. I actually experience both of them which is why Botox wasn’t an option for me. I dealt with hesitancy long before I dealt with the urgency and the accidents. What is urinary hesitancy mean? If you have trouble starting to urinate or maintaining urine flow, you may have urinary hesitancy. If you ever experienced hesitancy you know how it feels. Your bladder is full,…

Bluetooth sleep mask

I posted my first video blog yesterday. A beautiful day in the neighborhood. I think that may become my new way to blog. Hopefully I’ll become less nervous and stupid in front of the camera. I’m not one who likes photos or videos of myself so it was a little bit of an awkward position for me. But I did step out of my comfort zone and I did a blog that was much easier on my hands and a…

Multiple Experiences is on vacation

Multiple Experiences is on vacation

I have to be honest, I’m not sure I still want to blog anymore. I have had this feeling once before over a year ago. https://multipleexperiences.org/2020/01/18/do-i-continue-to-blog/. At that time I realized I still loved writing about my life daily. I have poured my heart out in so many of these posts. I’ve shared every bad day and every embarrassing MS moment I deal with daily on the pages of multiple experiences. My stories are getting repetitive. I’m running out of…

I’m feeling ok, another infusion in the past

I’m feeling ok, another infusion in the past

It is beautiful out although slightly chilly. That doesn’t stop me from opening windows to let some fresh air through. I don’t mind the chill, it feels nice because the sun is hitting this side of the building. Once the sun starts to move I will start to freeze. The temperature is only 46 degrees out, not really windows open weather. It’s that sun hitting so directly that adds so much heat. It feels really nice. I’ve been feeling pretty…

Contagious Laughing

One day I have windows open in the house next day I’m turning on the heat. Crazy weather in NY. It was Passover this weekend. My mom and stepdad came over and we had a very revised Seder. However they had these new Passover books if I didn’t know the story of Passover I wasn’t learning it from this book. 40 some years I’ve been doing these Seders and I’ve never read from a book that made no sense. I…

Multiple sclerosis isn’t just my diagnosis

Multiple sclerosis isn’t just my diagnosis

I’m thankfully doing better today because I slept. Never under estimate the power of a good nights sleep. I was able to exercise a little this morning. I purposely decided to keep it simple and just do my MS gym exercises. There was an entire revamping of the MS gym and I actually started the from the very beginning again. That means the exercises aren’t as intense. I was pairing them with chair cardio everyday but knew that wouldn’t be…

Infusion or no sleep is kicking my ass

Infusion or no sleep is kicking my ass

I haven’t slept well for two nights now. I spent the first night with those belly issues and last night with bladder issues. I was using the bathroom every hour. I honestly think this was somehow related to the infusion. I have had nights where I’ve used the bathroom frequently but every hour is something that is a rarity. Yet that was my night. This is the second day in a row that I’ve hit my 12 hours of stand,…
