Voluntary Best Friends

Voluntary Best Friends

I am still dealing with all the little things, but I’m not as down as I was writing Monday’s blog. I can report that there is still areas I’m making improvements. Tuesday I was actually able to get up from sitting on the toilet seat. It was a “dry run” exercise with my occupational therapist. I was actually able to get up twice. I didn’t even use that seat that goes over the bowl to raise you up. I was…

Key to Happiness

Key to Happiness

I remember when I was a kid I used to dream of living in this huge house. I wanted my house to have a lot of land. I didn’t have a clue as a kid about cleaning a house or maintaining a large piece of property. I didn’t have any idea what a mortgage was or how much property taxes could be on large land lots. I wanted a family. I always wanted to have animals. I even fantasized of…

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…

Rocket Ship Yoga

My family means the world to me. They have been my support system for my multiple sclerosis since day 1. However, their support over the ordeal with the Covid and the pneumonia was beyond anything I have ever felt. It actually brought some of my relationships closer. Especially with my sister. She became the first person I text every morning in the hospital. We continued to do this even when I got home. In all the time I was sick…

A special birthday wish

A special birthday wish

Happy Birthday to my step dad today. A very special birthday, he turns 70. I’m happy to say I am seeing him for dinner. I have bought a few surprises to make the evening have a party like vibe. We are having dinner at my house so I like it to be a little special. He deserves it to be special. My stepdad has been in my life since I was like 4. I can’t say I have always given…

Family weekend and a quiet week

Family weekend and a quiet week

Good morning. Happy Monday. I had a nice weekend myself, lots of family. I started with my stepmom coming in from Florida. She came Friday afternoon with my younger sister. It was a really nice visit. I missed her hugs. I haven’t seen her in probably 2 years because of Covid. My little sister I see every few weeks, which makes me happy. It is hard to believe a year ago she was living in San Francisco. She hasn’t been…

Today, yesterday and the week

Today, yesterday and the week

I woke up this morning with a headache. Not the way I wanted to start my day. It is going to rain. Thankfully it isn’t a migraine. I actually haven’t had one of those in a while. Hopefully I don’t jinx myself. I have a happy day today. Lots of people coming over. My sister and her kids but more importantly my aunt and uncle. I haven’t seen them since before the pandemic started. I lived a few blocks from…

Spreading holiday joy

Spreading holiday joy

I went around my building yesterday spreading Holiday Joy. Every year I buy Mrs Prindable apples to give as gifts for the holiday season. This year I decided to give them to my friends in my building and some other people that are around me. I had my gifts for the people that work in the condo, my apples, my mask and out I went to spread joy. I didn’t call ahead to say I’d be coming so I was…

Reason to love the cold rainy day

Reason to love the cold rainy day

It is a rainy, cold and miserable day here in New York. The kind of day you want to sit on the couch wrapped up in a blanket and watch Netflix from morning to night.  The kind of day you pray you have nothing to do, nowhere to be, and no other obligations. The kind of day I am remotely grateful that I have multiple sclerosis and have nothing to do, nowhere to be and no other obligations. I…

My family my support

My family my support

Good Morning to everyone. I think I’m officially through all my infusion side effects now. I’m happy to say I’m doing ok. Now I’m waiting for the New York weather to start resembling normal weather for the end of September. I’m ready to turn of the AC and bring out my comfy sweatshirts I love so much. I find the fact that it is humid very annoying. I love sweating during my workouts but hate sweating when I’m not doing…
