Friday is here again

Friday is here again

I am playing mahjong today for the first time since the coronavirus. I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to play but I am hoping I can sit for 2 hours at least. Unfortunately my wheelchair cripples me more than I’m already crippled. It’s the muscles in my core (a reader of my blog explained this to me). I’m reclined in my comfy chair, not putting strain on my muscles. In the wheelchair, I am sitting up. There is…

Determined to walk

Determined to walk

These weeks are going by super fast. It’s Friday again already. Obviously, guess I didn’t really need to point that out. I just feel like things have been on hyper drive lately. It’s bizarre. I mean we are already through half of the year 2021. Didn’t we just celebrate the New Year? Does time speed up as you get older? I turn 50 this year, in November. I remember throwing a surprise party for my mom when she turned 50….

The energy graph

The energy graph

I was taking it easy this morning with exercise because physical therapy starts today. Yet I’m huffing and puffing as I sit down to write this. I wanted to be in somewhat a stronger state because unfortunately he is coming late today, at least late to my MS body. He won’t be here until 3-3:30. This is the point in the day where my energy level starts to decrease at a rapid pace. I always say from the time I…

My view on exercise

My view on exercise

I was watching a show about the Amish in Pennsylvania. I think what shocked me the most was some of the county’s names. I knew of Intercourse, PA but was amazed there is a place called Blue Ball, PA. It starts to make something innocent like Mount Joy, PA to maybe be not so innocent. I mean who came up with these names??? Sure you go from Blue Ball, PA and suddenly you enter Mount Joy. Happily moving to Intercourse,PA…

Better but exhausted

Better but exhausted

Better today but still so tired. I went into bed at 8 last night and got out of bed after 8 this morning. Today is the first day I’m drinking coffee. Hopefully that helps. However I can feel already my body is exhausted. I did a very simple 30 minute workout because I have a few things going on today and didn’t want to overdo myself. Yet I’m sitting here exhausted. This is not good. So much has gone on…

How fatigue affects life

How fatigue affects life

I’ve been so tired lately. I never really took in to account how my body would react to work being done in my place. I knew I would be shifted around slightly but didn’t think it was a big deal. I was clearly wrong. By the time the afternoon comes around I’m struggling to get myself to the bathroom. I’m back to dreading every time the need comes. Sometimes I’m so tired that the hesitancy I talked about recently Bladder…

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 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…

The hard day is done

The hard day is done

I made it through the day yesterday but barely. I was absolutely shot by the time I got home. I got everything I wanted accomplished. I officially have handicap plates on my van. They almost didn’t let me get them. I had a copy of the original DMV doctor form. I didn’t think and grabbed the copy. According to the rules they don’t accept copies. The supervisor finally came over and did a visual confirmation and accepted the form. I…

Does getting out of bed count?

Does getting out of bed count?

Good morning world. I’m in my chair after my workout drinking a cup of ice coffee. My first cup since Sunday. I spent the day in bed yesterday after being up all night with stomach issues. I emerged from my bed after 4pm to feed the dogs and was back asleep again by 8pm. I slept until almost 9 this morning waking up only one time to use the bathroom. I may have had some stomach issues but I obviously…
