Bedbugs…not Hives

Bedbugs…not Hives

I woke up scathing my hives as normal last night. This time I saw a small bug on my humpty’s head. It was about 12:30 am. As I crushed the sucker it made a blood spot. Something didn’t seem right when i saw that bug. I picked up my phone and google bedbugs. Could my hives be bedbugs? Yes, for the first time, in my months of scratching, I wondered maybe I have bedbugs. I started googling which caused me…

Getting a new caseworker

Getting a new caseworker

I haven’t slept in three nights because of the fireworks. My poor Minx gets so worked up from the noise. I even gave him medication. With every explosion outside came a round of barking from the inside. Therefore when the idiots were still setting things off at 1am, my Minxy was barking like crazy. It is difficult to sleep through that. I thought to myself, ok, I’ll wake up, workout and nap this afternoon. I did my workout, which was…

Fireworks tips when you have dogs

Fireworks tips when you have dogs

Happy 4th of July to everyone. It’s a beautiful day and everyone is probably thinking about BBQ and fireworks, I’m thinking about my dog, Boomer, who passed away in December. He hated this holiday and I always wanted to stay near him because of his reaction to the noise.  My 70lb English Bulldog would jump in my lap, cowering, crying and shaking. Some years we even tried to give him treats or meds that would calm him down, nothing worked….

The dumb things that frustrate me

The dumb things that frustrate me

Why is it simple things, never go simply? I finally got rid of cable TV. My plan went up again to almost $200!! I don’t even watch the cable. I watch everything on the firestick. I pay for extra services to avoid commercials like Peacock and Paramount. I have everything Amazon, Netflix, and Hulu. I didn’t need to be spending money anymore on cable. I finally cut the cord and got a plan that was just phone and internet. I…

Nap time

Nap time

I took a nap yesterday. First time I did that in ages. I didn’t sleep well the night before. I knew I needed more sleep. I kept my pajamas on and stayed under my blanket. I spoke to everyone I wanted to talk. I text my daughter and mom to let them know that I was going to sleep. I even put my phone on do not disturb. Thankfully, the house phone didn’t ring through out the afternoon. I appreciate…

Multiple Sclerosis Adapt and Accept

Multiple Sclerosis Adapt and Accept

Friday again. It was a week ago I wrote about weather changes once again affecting MS symptoms. https://multipleexperiences.org/2022/06/17/mentally-strong/. I had changed PT from Monday to Wednesday because I was having a rough day Monday. Well I guess I was having a rough day Wednesday too. I couldn’t walk five steps. So much for my goal of walking the hallway and back to my condo door. It wasn’t even close. I honestly couldn’t walk a few feet out my door. I…

That’s a lot of Empty Space

That’s a lot of Empty Space

I had my first big outing yesterday. I went with my stepdad to take Zoey to the vet. I wasn’t driving but I’ve been a passenger many times while he drives. I even went into the vet with Zoey. I saw people other than my family and close friends. That was a big deal. Thankfully Zoey is doing better. She will be on gabapentin for an extended period of time, possibly her life. I told her I have gabapentin on…

Cleaning up my happy place

Cleaning up my happy place

I’ve been fixing my bedroom this weekend. It was a beautiful weekend to clean. I was able to open my windows and let the fresh air in. I love that. I even had my wheelchair raised as I worked out in the morning so I could view the water. I even tried to hang out in the other side of my bed on Saturday. I was hoping I could view the water while I was in my room, watching TV….

Mentally Strong

Mentally Strong

I am still running on empty this week. It is very strange, I walked the furthest I walked on Monday. Wednesday and Thursday I’ve had difficulty standing up and transferring. When I say difficulty, I mean it’s been harder than it’s had been over the previous weeks. It is requiring more energy to get myself up into the standing position. It is more laborious moving my feet. Good MS days and bad days. I have had some pretty intense workouts…

Happy in my Bedroom

Happy in my Bedroom

I’ve been sleeping so well since the hospital days. That is until the last few nights. I was up every hour one night. The next night I was up for a prolonged period of time for no apparent reason. I am now functioning on day two without sleeping well. I’m freaking tired. I am running out of steam way to early in the day. It is the reason why I do everything first thing in the morning. I did have…
