Not a happy New Year

Not a happy New Year

Hello everyone, Happy New Year. I know it seems like I disappeared but unfortunately I had legitimate reasons. I ended up in the hospital last Thursday with Covid and a UTI. It wasn’t really the Covid that put me in the hospital it was the combination of the two infections. I was so weak I was having difficulty sending a text message. I spent New Year’s Eve sleeping in a hospital bed. So much for 2022 being my year. I…

Remaining hopeful it will help the spasticity

Remaining hopeful it will help the spasticity

Inconclusive. My bladder test was inconclusive. They said that the sample contained bacteria in their that couldn’t have come from the urine alone. I was thrilled I got urine in the cup. That was a challenge in itself for someone with multiple sclerosis and bladder issues. I even was able to use the little handy wipe they give you before you give the sample. I was so proud of myself that day. So much for that gold star. Thank goodness…

My angel number 22 and the New Year

My angel number 22 and the New Year

The countdown to 2022 begins. Will this be my year? It’s my number, 22. What is strange is my number 22 has been popping up everywhere. I usually ask to see it when I need a sign or I ask a question. It’s my spiritual number. However, I’m seeing it everywhere and I really don’t know why. Seeing a repeating number is like your angel pointing to you and making you feel seen and heard. They are trying to get…

A possible reason for this spasticity

A possible reason for this spasticity

I might have put it all together. A few months ago I treated myself for a possible bladder infection/UTI. Maybe not the smartest thing, but I did. I suspected I had a bladder infection and I had some antibiotics. They weren’t the normal antibiotics usually prescribed for any type of infection in that area, but according to google, it would work. I took them for a total of 5 days. The normal prescription, for the antibiotic I had , is…

Who am I without multiple sclerosis?

Who am I without multiple sclerosis?

I was thinking the other day, what if there was a magic pill to cure multiple sclerosis? What if I can take something that not only stops future disability but cures current disability? What if tomorrow I could actually walk again? I have spent half my life with MS. It is part of my identity, even though I pretend it isn’t. Who am I without my disease? I have this recurring dream that I’m working but still collecting disability. In…

Spirits, ghosts and the universe

Spirits, ghosts and the universe

I haven’t been spiritual in a while on my blog. Just because I don’t write about it doesn’t mean I’ve stopped believing. Sometimes my spiritual side steers me to watching programs, on my Firestick, that some may feel is pretty dark. Last week I was watching programs about life after death. I was watching I survived, Life and Beyond as well as a Netflix documentary, Surviving Death. I know, very uplifting stuff. I really don’t have a suicidal thoughts. I…

Taking a new aide

Taking a new aide

I have to admit I am wrong this while I am doing my bionic gym. It is very difficult to do this while you are shaking. Forgive me In advance for grammar and spelling errors more than my usual. I know last week I told you about the wonderful aide I had that covered for my full time aide on vacation. https://multipleexperiences.org/2021/12/10/the-replacement-aid/. It turns out on Monday, my full time aide said that she will be going to 3 days…

I hate vinyl windows

I hate vinyl windows

Sunshine and butterflies this morning. Ok no butterflies but there is sunshine. In my condo we get the morning sun. I have seen some gorgeous sunrises over the years. The morning sun heats up my condo even when the temperature is 40 degrees out. When I am working out in the AM, as I always do, I very often have a window open and my fan blowing. Once it hits 12pm, sun is over the top of the building, the…

Monday morning again…

Monday morning again…

We arrived at Monday once again. I feel like I am on a fast track through these days, weeks, months and years. That is saying something considering most of my days are spent in front of the TV. I am far from highly stimulated most days. Yet the days are going fast. I know I’ve said this many times before. I’m sorry I’m repeating myself. I just find it amazing sometimes. I got to spend a few hours with my…

The replacement aid

The replacement aid

I’m doing better with the spasticity. I was never a person who thought Baclofen really did anything. I’ve taken 10mg a day, as preventative, for as long as I can remember. Well increasing it to 20mg twice a day has definitely did something. The constant dull ache I’ve had in my lower back has almost completely subsided. I am able to bend my legs to get up more often than not now. I’m not cured but doing much better. I…
