Tests. Doctors, tests, doctors and more appointments

I already received a call from my doctor this morning, MRI showed no new activity and my normal MS abnormalities. Exactly as expected. Like I said yesterday in my blog I haven’t shown anything on my MRI in years. I continue to get worse because I’m secondary progressive MS. Read the post on Dr. Krieger’s pool theory for further explanation. https://multipleexperiences.org/wp-admin/post.php?post=5174&action=edit. Well at least that’s done for the year. I also made an appointment to have a sonogram done on…

Great sleep feeling good

Great sleep feeling good

The most amazing thing happened yesterday, I slept through the night. I’m not talking about until 5 AM, I’m talking about not getting up until 8:30 AM to first use the bathroom. I don’t think that has happened to me once in the last 15 years. I couldn’t believe it. I wasn’t even about to have an accident as I emerged from my bed. I was in total bladder control. It was like a miracle, a gift from the universe….

Urologist visit

Urologist visit

I went to the urologist on Friday to discuss Botox in the bladder.The last of the week trip to urologist Botox for the bladder. What a genuinely honest and patient doctor this was. He came in and knew that I needed questions answered and was prepared to sit and talk. Not only was that nice of a doctor in general but it was nice of a doctor during these times with Covid. He was very honest when he answered and…

Bladder issues

Bladder issues

I’m not sure what exactly is going on with my bladder these days. I know I have issues, had them for years, but they’ve seemed somewhat worse over the last few weeks. I am not sure if I don’t have some kind of bladder infection. The problem is that is varies day to day, something bladder infection tend not to do. However between my water pills and Toviaz, who knows. Urinary tract infections don’t always cause signs and symptoms, but…

Making my disability work in new environments

Making my disability work in new environments

Not a bad place to be to write a blog post. It is a rare morning because it is actually only my sister and myself awake at this moment. She is in one chair reading her book with a cup of tea, I’m in the other with writing with a cup of coffee. It is so beautiful up here. She lives about 2 1/2 hours away from me in upstate New York. If we continued another 45 minutes we’d be…

Bowel and bladder problems and MS

Bowel and bladder problems and MS

I’m always preaching about adapting and I had to make another adaptation for myself. I bought a commode to leave by me to avoid the “accidents”. Too many times I’m just steps sea and it happens. I’ve had the order for the commode since I was in the hospital last year with cellulitis. I kept saying I didn’t need it, my bathrooms were close enough. My caseworker asks me every month because it was recommended by the nurse at my…

Stomach bugs with MS bladder/bowel issues

Stomach bugs with MS bladder/bowel issues

Ok warning I’m going graphic here because I need to be honest and there is no other way. I have bladder and bowel control issues. For my bladder I take Toviaz which helps me not have accidents but when I have to go I have a very short window of time to make it to a bathroom. Without this medicine I have NO window of time. My bowels are completely different. I can’t take anything and have no control over…

What I learned on my trip

What I learned on my trip

There was no bad weather in NY that my vacation was cut short. However, today it is 5 degrees with a real feel temperature of negative 15. Yet I’m comfortable and was freezing in Mexico, what was that about? My trip was great but there was things that would have made things easier for me I guess I know now if there is ever a next time. One of my biggest obstacles was the bed. They gave me a step…

I’m on vacation my MS is not

I’m on vacation my MS is not

It’s been less than 48 hours that I’ve been on vacation and my multiple sclerosis has not been easy. Half of my clothing I’ve worn so far has been washed due to bladder issues. Not a fun way to start. Really MS, you couldn’t keep that shit together for a few days? I’ve had countless people helping life me feet up small steps or onto golf carts from my family to hotel staff because my legs are far from cooperating….
