Exercising is not optional

Exercising is not optional

I truly want to write happy, uplifting blogs but I haven’t been able to do that lately. For every good day I’ve been having a few rough days following. It seems like I’ve been having more rough days than good days. Each time I think I’m through the worst of it, like my infusion, something seems to happen. If it is a tough night sleeping or a great night sleeping, I’m waking up tired. Doesn’t seem to matter. Today I…

Infusion aftermath

Infusion aftermath

Yesterday was a very rough day. I’ve been sleeping good so that’s a plus. I was able to exercise because that is never an option. I would say around 12 o’clock it hit me like a ton of bricks. Maybe not even bricks, more like a Mack truck. I just was fatigued in every single muscle and joint. Even moving to go to the bathroom was so difficult. Anyone with MS knows that feeling. However this one was like times…

Fatigue, workouts, the MS gym and stuff

Fatigue, workouts, the MS gym and stuff

Good morning to all. I just sat down from my morning exercise. My body certainly feels it but my heart rate didn’t reflex the same results. I have not taken one day off since I started the MS gym program. I just changed my workouts and incorporated the gym too. The last time I didn’t close my exercise circle (the green circle) was back on June 25th. When I complete this week, I will have completed the program I signed…

Heat and humidity causing such fatigue

Heat and humidity causing such fatigue

It was hot, humid and hazy yesterday in NY. I stayed in the AC the entire day. It didn’t matter, the heat and humidity still found its way into my bones. I had a very tough day. I normally do a 45 minute workout on Sundays but only finished 30. I had to use the bathroom. That was an unsuccessful event. Bad footing caused me to slide down to the floor. Once I was there, I knew I was in…

Sunday down day

Sunday down day

Well I was very wrong about the fireworks. I thought everything was canceled but obviously that wasn’t the case. Where the fireworks in my town were canceled, other towns weren’t. I saw all the fireworks going off all across the horizon. It was extremely cool. Of course there were still fireworks set off close to my house as well. So much for them being illegal in New York. I had a great show to watch for over an hour. My…

A stomach bug and multiple sclerosis

A stomach bug and multiple sclerosis

I had a rough day yesterday. I had some kind of stomach bug. Let’s just say if I had to do a colonoscopy this morning I would be well prepared. I felt awful. I couldn’t really eat a thing. Anything I ate wouldn’t stay for long. I was dehydrated so the only thing I really could do was drink. My body was so achy. This is where having MS is always an issue. It wasn’t just the fear of an…

No fatigue lately

No fatigue lately

I haven’t been sleeping great. I’m up all night either using the bathroom or unable to get the right temperature. However I still wake up in the morning pretty bright eyed abs chipper. Starting each morning with some puppy love helps that situation. I’ve put in some great workouts in the AM. Yesterday I did 52 minutes. That pretty intense especially since I didn’t go to bed until after 10:00. That’s when I realized that I’ve been doing really good…

A week after Rituxan

A week after Rituxan

I went through my blog posts because I couldn’t remember how many times I’ve done Rituxan. I made the switch from Ocrevus back to Rituxan for the March 2019 infusion. This is my 3rd time. I was on Rituxan at an earlier time but was forced to change when Ocrevus came out. My insurance company, at the time, would not authorize Rituxan because it was not approved for multiple sclerosis. I than changed insurance companies once again and asked to…

Rituxan infusion coming up

Rituxan infusion coming up

Good morning and happy hump day to all. Got through the day of exhaustion from therapy yesterday. At least I had a justifiable reason for being fatigued. I even made it to my hair appointment and no more grey hairs, at least for the next 5-6 weeks. My wonderful hair dresser, who is also a good friend, even blew out my hair for me saving me a step so I didn’t have to deal with it myself. I’m almost due…

Not liking physical therapy

Not liking physical therapy

So after a second day of consuming a regiment of oregano oil and using Doterra Breathe, I got into bed sneezed once and never sneezed again. Achoo-ing through the night. Woke up fine. So strange!!!! I’m doing much better with the Provigil. I’m so happy to report. I am no longer waking up exhausted as if I never slept. That has been such a huge difference that I’ve been able to get back to my life. I have still been…
