Physical Therapy Begins Again

Physical Therapy Begins Again

Hello my fellow bloggers and readers. Happy Friday. I am chilling with Zoey watching a F1 2008 race. I’ve been watching old season since the F1 season ended in 2022. I watched every race in the two seasons that Fernando Alonso won his championship titles. Fernando Alfonso is my favorite driver. I’ve seen many of his earlier races at various times. However, to watch a season,one race at a time, you really see how the title was won. I have…

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…

Rituxan Infusion in the Books

Rituxan Infusion in the Books

I am half way through my Rituxan infusion. Chilling out watching Ink Master. I was smart this morning. I kept my arms covered despite being slightly warm. I know, all too well, that my cold arms do not help when trying to start an IV. I overheat so easily so there is usually a fan blowing right next to me. I might not feel cold but my arms and hands are always cold to touch. I kept a sweatshirt on…

Shameful Doctor

Shameful Doctor

I’ve been absent again. I have just had a lousy few weeks. I have had a shitty year. If you have read my blog, I have that well documented. I’m tired of dealing with all the issues that keep occurring week in and week out. I just feel like I have not had one month where I wasn’t dealing with some issues. From sickness to bedbugs back to my chronic stomach issues, I honestly feel like I can’t catch a…

Only Wednesday..,

Only Wednesday..,

I got a Covid booster and flu shot on Saturday. I was down for the count for almost 2 days. I’m doing better now. I thankfully made the decision to cancel occupational therapy for the morning. I was feeling better but I think I still needed the day to recoup. I didn’t even exercise, you know that’s saying a lot for me. As I laid in bed somewhat sleeping Monday morning, my new aide once again showed up an hour…

What is multiple sclerosis?

What is multiple sclerosis?

I don’t know how many times I’ve talked to people that had the cure for multiple sclerosis. If it was just about diet and taking vitamins, I promise you, I would be doing that. People mean well. Unfortunately, they read one story and think it works the same way for everyone. If there was a universal cure we’d know. I think that diet and vitamin can make a difference in the early stages of multiple sclerosis. The healthier your body…

Occupational therapy vs Physical Therapy

Occupational therapy vs Physical Therapy

Happy hump day. Another day, another week. This week was a little different for me because my daughter is home for a visit. I love having her home. I love her energy in the house. I love how she climbs into my bed when she wakes up and is always in my bed before I go to sleep. I miss her when she leaves until I get use to her being gone again. Right now I get to enjoy her…

Inside my room of quiet

Inside my room of quiet

I am going to attempt to play mahjong today with the girls. This will be my first time since December. I am looking forward to playing. I also hope I can play. It would be a shame if I am still too weak to play. I have had enough reminders as to where I am today as opposed to where I was. Mahjong is my favorite and I really don’t want to be discouraged by something else. I put off…

Nap time

Nap time

I took a nap yesterday. First time I did that in ages. I didn’t sleep well the night before. I knew I needed more sleep. I kept my pajamas on and stayed under my blanket. I spoke to everyone I wanted to talk. I text my daughter and mom to let them know that I was going to sleep. I even put my phone on do not disturb. Thankfully, the house phone didn’t ring through out the afternoon. I appreciate…

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…
