Multiple Sclerosis is not an Easy Disease

Multiple Sclerosis is not an Easy Disease

Happy Friday. I feel like this week went super fast. I didn’t do much. I fell again this week. This marks the fourth fall in 3 weeks. I am having trouble with transferring from my bed to my wheelchair or wheelchair to my bed. Most other the falls have happened with aides that were new to me. They either didn’t have good enough English to understand what I was saying or they really couldn’t do what I needed. However, the…

Ugh Multiple Sclerosis

Ugh Multiple Sclerosis

I’ve dealt with multiple sclerosis for 24 years yet I can still be surprised by its symptoms. You’d think I wouldn’t be shocked anymore. I had to spend most of my afternoon in my comfy chair. The exterminator was coming back, to treat my room, for the third time. It seems that the guy who boasted about his 12 year experience with bedbug, still missed the bedbugs alive in my room. He reported seeing nothing after I told him specifically…

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…

Multiple Sclerosis symptoms worsen

Multiple Sclerosis symptoms worsen

I’m better. No more fevers. My breathing is back to normal. I’m completely done with antibiotics. I have no more signs of the pneumonia. Great news. Yes it is. Yet the aftermath is as I expected. I was weakened from being in a bed for 1 1/2 months on top of my multiple sclerosis symptoms worsening. I had no time to adjust to my new body because I was so sick. I wasn’t focusing on my MS while I had…

Weekend plans, or not

Weekend plans, or not

When your day starts off with an accident and a fall, you aren’t feeling so optimistic for a good MS day. Yesterday evening was my second Kesimpta shot. I decided to once again do my thigh region. I did my right leg this time. That might not have been the best place. As soon as the needle pierced the skin, my leg immediately went into a super spasm. I twitched and moved during the injection. It hurt. I know that…

Multiple sclerosis isn’t just my diagnosis

Multiple sclerosis isn’t just my diagnosis

I’m thankfully doing better today because I slept. Never under estimate the power of a good nights sleep. I was able to exercise a little this morning. I purposely decided to keep it simple and just do my MS gym exercises. There was an entire revamping of the MS gym and I actually started the from the very beginning again. That means the exercises aren’t as intense. I was pairing them with chair cardio everyday but knew that wouldn’t be…

A bad day can be just that, a day

A bad day can be just that, a day

For the many bad days of multiple sclerosis, there are better ones as well. Yesterday was one of those days. I started off with a workout as usual. My energy level was definitely high and I was able to double up on all the arm exercises. I had one of those workouts where I was sweating and my heart was pumping. I was tired but in a good way when I was finished. The way you should feel after a…

Exercising is not optional

Exercising is not optional

I truly want to write happy, uplifting blogs but I haven’t been able to do that lately. For every good day I’ve been having a few rough days following. It seems like I’ve been having more rough days than good days. Each time I think I’m through the worst of it, like my infusion, something seems to happen. If it is a tough night sleeping or a great night sleeping, I’m waking up tired. Doesn’t seem to matter. Today I…

Happy Birthday to me

Happy Birthday to me

https://youtu.be/emapZzstxzU Another year has gone by and another number added to my years alive. I certainly am not complaining. I am actually grateful. Things were really good this year. My life was completely changed by many people, friends, family and others that barely know me contributing to my fundraiser for my van. This was at the perfect time when walking with my walker was becoming too difficult. This van gave me freedom. I was able to conserve energy that I…

I’ve fallen and I can’t get up

I’ve fallen and I can’t get up

Last night was a very bad night. All my family and friends who haven’t heard the story I’m sorry you’ll be hearing it through my blog. I am fine. If I wasn’t I wouldn’t be writing this today. I played mahjong yesterday for the afternoon and got home around 3. I was completely exhausted more than normal. I started feeling achy as well. I think I was running a low grade fever because of this abscess on my stomach. More…
