You are what you think

You are what you think

This whole hospital episode has put me in a little bit of a depression. I just haven’t been able to shake myself from it but I’m very aware that I’m in it. I don’t know if it is a side effect of the immense amount of antibiotics or if my anti-depressant got messed up last week. I know I ran out and I my prescription was picked up late but I was given them in the hospital. Maybe it just…

Pictures of what makes me happy

Pictures of what makes me happy

I’m happy to say I’m all done with Ocrevus for six months. I just have to deal, of course, with the side effects from the steroids. I have to be honest too, these medicines and these infusions mess with my mood. I feel like I haven’t been my happy self in so long. I’m back to living in my four walls of a MS because I haven’t left my apartment. I’ve gone out for physical therapy and a couple errands…

MS and depression it’s not all in your head

MS and depression it’s not all in your head

I wrote a blog couple weeks ago titled am I depressed? https://multipleexperiences.org/2017/05/16/am-i-depressed/. I agree with  everything I wrote, but when I saw my neurologist the other day, we decided to put Prozac back in my medicine mix.  Where I don’t think I’m depressed, what isn’t fully in control, is my emotions. I cry over everything. I’ve written blogs about this too. I cry over happy things and sad things, it makes no difference. According to webmd: http://www.webmd.com/multiple-sclerosis/guide/ms-depression#1 The Link Between MS and…

Am I depressed?

Am I depressed?

I have to be honest, I’ve been asked this more than once by family members, doctors and friends. For probably 15  of the 19 years I have MS, I was on Prozac.  I think in my 20s I was miserable for many reasons, especially when I got my diagnosis. However, the main reason for Prozac was because Betaseron, my MS therapy drug, had the side effect of depression.  It’s like you take a drug, but then you need something to…

Emotional freedom technique

Emotional freedom technique

This is actually a reblog of mine. I used tapping for weight loss and self esteem issues some time ago. I must admit, I haven’t been doing it at all lately, but I know it’s a great tool. I’ve been having problems sleeping. I’ve been waking up almost every hour. I can’t stress how important sleep is with MS, or any chronic condition for that matter, and I’m not getting enough. In my email today was an article about tapping…

My acceptance is my forgiveness

My acceptance is my forgiveness

Would I rather be right or happy? I can go into the complete injustice of it all. Yell and scream, cry and be sad but in the end I wouldn’t be in a different place just maybe have a few more battle wounds. I sadly have come to the realization that I need to say goodbye to people I care about. I had this whole blog post written but forgot to hit save and ended up losing everything I wrote….
