Video blogging and podcasts

Video blogging and podcasts

I wanted to share this morning was a link to the MS gym podcast. https://themsgym.podbean.com/ or for Apple https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-ms-gym-podcast/id1368971662. The topic was They have various topics all relating to many obstacles and challenges we face. I highly recommend you check this out. I sometimes wonder if my blog should be a video on YouTube as opposed to the written word. In a video you’d see my real video personality and emotions. I think at some point even writing with Siri…

Ocrevus vs Rituxan

Ocrevus vs Rituxan

My infusion scheduled for March 17. I’ve been on many of the disease modifying MS drugs over my 23 year span with the disease. Betaseron still holds the record of 12 years but that also has to do with the drugs that were available when I first got diagnosed. I have been on either Rituxan or Ocrevus since 2016. I group these two drugs together for very specific reasons, they are fundamentally the same. The biggest difference is Rituxan is…

A good news blog

A good news blog

I just got off the phone with my vet. Minx had two different liver panels of bloodwork yesterday. One of them he was back in normal range. The other one is dropping significantly in the right direction. I don’t remember what she called the test but a normal range high is about 120. When he was rushed in last week he was over 1000. Yesterday he was at 368. He’s still high, which she expected, but it is a significant…

Anxiety doesn’t sneak up on you, it pounces

Anxiety doesn’t sneak up on you, it pounces

Happy Wednesday. It was happy when I wrote those two words which were over an hour ago. My phone has been ringing since. Nothing bad but diverting my attention away from the blog. Then things happened at once. Minx was about to go with my aide to the vet and he got sick. He hasn’t had anything to eat since 6pm yesterday. Why would he be sick again? Zoey has been crying and howling at the door since his departure….

Skin infection, antibiotics and the one who couldn’t deal

Skin infection, antibiotics and the one who couldn’t deal

I was at my primary care physician yesterday because I have a cut on my shin that is infected. I had antibiotics in the house and I started to self medicate and it wasn’t really working so I got an appointment. She prescribed a stronger antibiotic and a cream but thankfully it wasn’t cellulitis or any further issue that needed more care. This was my fault. I knew it was infected for a while. My Zoey never left that spot…

A horrible tail with a very happy ending

A horrible tail with a very happy ending

I can tell you many things about the last few days but I’ll start with this one. If you happen to see my blog on Friday, I had a little blip about Minx not feeling well. I even posted a picture I thought he was sick from eating pizza the night before. A ridiculous thought in retrospect. It clicked a little while after. I woke up to Minx chewing on my Afrin nose spray bottle. I just took the flattened…

The day after the worst of the Covid vaccination

The day after the worst of the Covid vaccination

I’m doing better today. I slept all day yesterday. I even ordered a pizza because I was too sick to microwave or mix up one of my salads. I was so sick that when I was getting a slice one fell on the floor and I couldn’t even bend to pick it up. I let my dogs eat the pizza. I thought Zoey ate it mostly, however this morning Minx has been sick since he woke up. My poor little…

Covid vaccination reaction

Covid vaccination reaction

All I can tell you is that sucked. I had a rough night. My whole body ached. I couldn’t even sleep through it. I found that ibuprofen did not help and when I finally took Tylenol that took the aches away. I was able to finally get a little sleep between the hours of seven and 10. However I was up again at 11 because it was time for aspirin and my body knew it. Now I’m just waiting for…

Covid vaccination dose 2

Covid vaccination dose 2

Here I am in the back of my own van. My stepdad and mom are in the front seat. We are on the way to the Bronx for my 2nd Covid vaccination. My appointment was supposed to be on Thursday but snow is expected for that day. So we are on our way. This time I locked the wheelchair down and put on my wheelchair seatbelt. The backseat of my van is not the easiest place to sit. Between the…
