The Routine

The Routine

I’m sure I’ve blogged about this at some point because I don’t do well with disruptions. The days of spontaneous activities have long been gone. I could never just meet someone for dinner at short notice. My life, or I should say my activities, are planned both mentally and physically. Everything I do requires a tremendous amount of effort. Everyday is different as to which activity will put me over the edge. The activity might be the same and the…

Multiple Experiences is on vacation

Multiple Experiences is on vacation

I have to be honest, I’m not sure I still want to blog anymore. I have had this feeling once before over a year ago. https://multipleexperiences.org/2020/01/18/do-i-continue-to-blog/. At that time I realized I still loved writing about my life daily. I have poured my heart out in so many of these posts. I’ve shared every bad day and every embarrassing MS moment I deal with daily on the pages of multiple experiences. My stories are getting repetitive. I’m running out of…

I’m feeling ok, another infusion in the past

I’m feeling ok, another infusion in the past

It is beautiful out although slightly chilly. That doesn’t stop me from opening windows to let some fresh air through. I don’t mind the chill, it feels nice because the sun is hitting this side of the building. Once the sun starts to move I will start to freeze. The temperature is only 46 degrees out, not really windows open weather. It’s that sun hitting so directly that adds so much heat. It feels really nice. I’ve been feeling pretty…

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…

Multiple sclerosis medication and Liver

Multiple sclerosis medication and Liver

Weather is changing in NY. The days are longer and I’m seeing boats going out on the ocean. I once again find myself staring out my balcony window thrilled that there has still been no construction on the hotel that will block my view from my chair. I one day will have to sit on my balcony to get lost in my view but so far, today is not that day. I’m feeling better now. The body aches have left,…

When did it change???

When did it change???

I woke up this morning asking myself this very question. My disability has changed so subtly but so profoundly over the 3 years I’ve been just living in my condo. I specifically remember if I’d fall I’d have to crawl to a piece of furniture to help get myself up. This chair was a major assistance piece. It was the closest furniture from the kitchen or bathroom and I used it so often to aid me back to standing. Never…

Valentine’s Day marks 23 years with multiple sclerosis

Valentine’s Day marks 23 years with multiple sclerosis

At the age of 49 I’ve lived almost half my life with the disease. It was the weekend of Valentine’s Day when I was moving into my new home that my left foot started to go numb. Within 4 days it was all the way up the entire side of my body. Within 6 days I was at a neurologist who was asking my mom and I if anyone in my family had MS. Having actually had optic neuritis about…

Once again on the floor

Once again on the floor

Well unfortunately I had a tough morning. It seems my stomach is still having issues. I had to shower upon waking up this morning. I wish I knew what was causing all of this unsettling in my belly over the last few weeks. I’m scared to take anything because the fear of it binding and I experiencing the alternative is just as bad. However this leads me to make many trips necessary and unnecessary to the bathroom in fear of…

Why I believe in the MS Gym

Why I believe in the MS Gym

Ive had pretty significant changes that have been happening regarding my multiple sclerosis symptoms lately. In the grand scheme of things they might not seem significant but for me they are. My feet are pointing and flexing. They actually do it even better than this little video but I took this right after I worked out. My chin muscles are moving my feet really well. Not bad for someone with foot drop. I started phase 2 of standing strong and…

I’d love a day off from my symptoms

I’d love a day off from my symptoms

Well good morning to everyone. Happy Monday. I am dictating this through my new iPhone. Hopefully the dictation goes better than the old phone, after all the issues I’ve had dealing with the purchase of this new phone, at least something needs to go right.You can’t make this up….  I must say, so far, it’s working really well. I’ve had a tough weekend, I’m still just not feeling great, not sickness wise, more MS issues. i’ve slept in every…
