Fighting MS starts in your attitude

Fighting MS starts in your attitude

Yesterday during physical therapy the first thing we did was put me on the floor to get up. I just knew I had the strength to do it at this time and the first time I got myself up fairly quickly. So we did it for a second time. This time was harder, but I still managed to get myself up. My physical therapist said I can give you pointers but nobody knows their body better than you. One thing…

MS gym program exercise in a chair

MS gym program exercise in a chair

Can someone please explain this weather to me? One day I’m bundled in my sweatshirt putting on the heat. The next day I’m opening windows overheating at night under my blankets. No joke!!! I overheated last night in my bedroom. It made for a very long night. I had a super difficult time getting back into my bed after one of my bathroom trips that I really contemplated sleeping in my chair. I slept with my fan on once again….

Celebrating with love

Celebrating with love

Yesterday started the November/December celebrations Although now that my sister is in the process of adopting twin girls, we may need to push this start date to October 27th for their birthday. I always felt slightly bad for my older sister in these two months because she really gets slammed. I at least have some reprieve in the middle. I say this because this is what happens starting November 5th. Beginning of November is my stepdad’s birthday Middle of November…

Awake way to early

Awake way to early

It’s 9am and I’ve already showered, worked out for 54 minutes, took care of my dogs and spoke with my mom. I’ve been up since roughly 6 when my right foot started twitching. Even though this video was taken when I was awake and in my chair, it is exactly what happens anytime and anyplace my leg twitches. Now you tell me, could you sleep through that? After the first 5-10 times it actually starts to hurt almost. My foot…

I voted

I voted

Can we talk about anything but the election? No matter who you voted for, this is a very close race. I don’t like politics, I never did. I actually remained ignorant on the topic for a very long time. I voted only for a presidential candidate based on one issue that I still 100% stand behind. I am not going disclose my issue, or my stand on the issue, because my blog is not about my views on hot topics…

Physical therapy 1st appointment

Physical therapy 1st appointment

I can’t say enough good things about this guy. He is just a person size package of warmth and healing. It is nice to be the only one the therapist is focused on during an hour session as well. Even though my occupational therapist was from the same company, he was no where near the caliber of my physical therapist. My hour session were never an hour more like 30-40 minutes at best. I wasn’t complaining. He was more like…

Turning 49 in November

Turning 49 in November

Happy Monday once again. These weeks come so fast. Can’t believe it’s November already. I turned 49 in a couple of weeks. Oh joy. I’m looking at pictures that are flashing on my fire stick and my mother was my age. My daughter, who is now 21, is only four years off from when I got married. Six years off from when I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Seven years off from when I was pregnant with her. If that…

New purchases to help and aid

New purchases to help and aid

I figured something out once again out of dumb luck. Yesterday morning when I was getting out of bed, I actually had a slide onto the floor. When I wake up sometimes I have major spasms and my legs just don’t bend the right way. Yesterday was one of those days. Sometimes I’m able to get myself up without needing to actually bend my legs, however yesterday I wasn’t so lucky. It was first thing in the morning too and…

New physical therapist

New physical therapist

I had my physical therapy evaluation yesterday at 3 o’clock. I thought the time alone would be a complete disaster. I worked out yesterday from 9 to 10 AM. I had my beautiful sister here from about 11 to 1:30. I I thought I was exhausted but oddly enough I really had a second wind. First I must honestly say I loved this guy. He comes into my house and the first thing he does is greet my dogs. The…

Refocusing my thinking

Refocusing my thinking

I realize some thing yesterday, my post was pretty negative. I mean just filled with complaints about needing appreciation for doing something for somebody else. A complete opposite from my spiritual practice and what that teaches. It is certainly not about a thank you or someone else’s debt they owe you. You offer help because you can help. Help comes in a lot of different forms not always monetarily. When I realize this last night I was somewhat taken aback….
