I went to my friends house yesterday for an impromptu get together for the Fourth of July. It was extremely hot which I know is difficult for me with MS. However, I really wanted to go at least for a little while. I would’ve been fine in the heat if it wasn’t for my bladder. For some reason yesterday, I had to pee every hour. Not that that’s the worst thing in the world, except she has steps. I had to go up the steps to get to the bathroom. The heat is already making my legs weak and now I have to deal with steps.I wouldn’t even drink because I knew that would make it even worse. I wish I knew what was wrong that I was using the bathroom so often, but it was what it was.
Let me tell you about these girls. Talk about a group of girls that come to your aid. One carried my walker up the steps, One helped my right leg get up and one helped my left leg get up. Once I was up the stairs I was fine it was flat. I would’ve stayed even longer than I did if it wasn’t for that fact. As it was I was there for three hours and I went to the bathroom three times. The second I got home I had to go to the bathroom again. Of course after that, I didn’t have to go to the bathroom again for three hours, figure that out!!!
Such a great group of girls. They are so funny and are always such a blast to be around. It makes me feel so lucky to have such awesome friends that rush to help me as opposed to me feeling awkward. I had a great time and the heat wasn’t really the issue. To end my evening I saw tons of fireworks from my balcony which was amazing including the big firework show they do at the beach 10 minutes from my home across the water. It was so awesome.
