A day in the life with multiple sclerosis.
I’m down 20lbs

I’m down 20lbs

I haven’t talked too much about my weight over the last few months. I did write this post https://multipleexperiences.org/2021/10/04/moving-the-scale-downwards/ as I was making progress in weight loss. I started in July to finally make changes that has finally seen results. So, what did I do? Well, some time ago I wrote about a book my cousin recommended. https://multipleexperiences.org/2019/04/20/the-obesity-code/. It was about a book about how controlling glucose affects weight loss. I always knew that there was something to this but…

Another fall to face the truth

Another fall to face the truth

Well another episode started off an otherwise lovely evening. My mom and stepdad were coming over for dinner and to watch Yellowstone. We missed last week’s episode so we were in for a double feature. It was just about 4:00 when I hung up with my mother. I was getting up to feed my puppies. I didn’t transfer to my wheelchair well. I ended up sliding down to the floor. When I got up I would have taken the increase…

My neurologist visit

My neurologist visit

Well yesterday was a visit to my neurologist. I want to thank my pseudo uncle for driving my van. I am not so comfortable driving on the parkways anymore. My first words to my neurologist were “did you miss me?” I have been coming to see him for almost 24 years. I just turned 50, that is almost 1/2 my life. He has been on my multiple sclerosis journey from day 1. He was the neurologist that told me I…

Zoey has a luxating patella

Zoey has a luxating patella

I love my dogs. Just in case you didn’t know that. I really can’t imagine life without my pets. Losing one is heartbreaking and the pain is very really. However, the joy they bring to my world everyday is immeasurable. I try to give them the happiest life in return. That being said my Zoey has been suffering from a luxating patella. Her knee cap moves out of place. Unfortunately., this isn’t uncommon in French Bulldogs. We have been able…

Situations that cause anxiety or overwhelm

Situations that cause anxiety or overwhelm

Good morning. Happy Monday. I’m not sure why I care if it’s a Monday, Tuesday or a Saturday. My day doesn’t vary all that much I need to keep track of the days of the week so I appear at the right activity planned. I mean Monday morning at 9am is occupational therapy. I’d prefer not to answer the door in a nightgown with bad breath. However, I’m sure I will one day sleep late convinced I didn’t need to…

Black Friday….no deal

Black Friday….no deal

What a week. I am stuffed. I can do naked and afraid for the full 21 days and not have to worry about food. I feel like I just ate for a week straight. My birthday Monday,, our celebration bday dinner Wednesday and Thanksgiving Thursday. So much food. I should never complain. I wish everyone could go to sleep with a full stomach. I am so thankful for my overstuffed belly and for the family that surrounded the tables. Today…

How do you feel?

How do you feel?

I had a really good birthday day. I woke in a very cheery. I just stayed that way all day. How could I not? Every second I was either on the phone with someone wishing me the best or answering a text. I felt so loved. I was exhausted by the end of the evening from talking. However, I just felt enveloped in a gigantic heart bubble. It was pretty amazing. Worth turning 50. On Tuesday, my aide was off…

Happy 50th Birthday

Happy 50th Birthday

Well today is my 50th birthday. That is a number you never really think about until you are closer to the realization that you are there. I remember throwing my mother a surprise party for her 50th birthday. The biggest surprise of that day was that my aunt, her sister, actually picked up my grandma at the airport. Something that she NEVER did. I can still see the scene so vividly when everyone yelled surprise and my grandma popped up…

Spasticity update and sleep improvement

Spasticity update and sleep improvement

First I need to give an update on my Bionic Gym and spasticity experiment. In a quick summary I was paying close attention to how my spasticity was after I used my Gym. My blogs during the week discussed it a little further. https://multipleexperiences.org/2021/11/15/bionic-gym-helping-with-spasticity-my-experiment/ and https://multipleexperiences.org/2021/11/17/time-for-a-hair-color-change/. Please remember this is MY experience with Bionic Gym. https://bionicgym.com/?rfsn=6087517.2f5823 The company makes no claims to help with neurological issues. That being said, 100% it made a difference and that’s exactly what I was…

Time for a hair color change

Time for a hair color change

I am only a few days into my Bionic Gym and spasticity experiment, since I messed up Sunday https://multipleexperiences.org/2021/11/15/bionic-gym-helping-with-spasticity-my-experiment/. I have to say I am definitely finding it easier to bend my legs after I used my Gym. I am definitely having less spasticity issues. It doesn’t last forever. Every morning I wake up with the same issues with my legs. It’s like my lower back needs a super stretch to release my legs. Again it’s only been a few…
