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…

Happiness is two dogs and a comfy chair

Happiness is two dogs and a comfy chair

I’m exhausted. I just can’t start this blog any other way. I’ve been tired all week, shocking, I know. I think a major part of my fatigue has been the broken arms of my wheelchair. It was so difficult to get myself in position with that broken arm. I had my appointment yesterday. They were coming between the hours of 12-4. They showed up at 6:45. I was just so thankful they came I didn’t care what time it was….

Sakara food delivery so much thanks for a great gift

Sakara food delivery so much thanks for a great gift

My birthday present started this week. I enrolled in a weekly plan with Sakara. I originally found this food delivery company through my cousin and I got a scholarship for a full week of their food. https://multipleexperiences.org/2020/10/06/my-sakara-journey-begins/. It was so good, so fresh and perfect for me except the price. I knew I didn’t need a full week of food. It was way to much so that helped slightly because you can customize the weekly delivery. First I knocked out…

Sometimes I wish it wasn’t so damn hard

Sometimes I wish it wasn’t so damn hard

Friday was a tough day. I wrote how it started Persistent isn’t always a good thing but it never got better. I was exhausted most of the afternoon. My older sister came for a quick visit with her family but she too was having a tough week. I opened a bottle of wine for her. She poured some for the both of us. One of my favorite wines a JLohr Cabernet Sauvignon, thanks to dinners with my dad, I always…

Simple things to make life a little easier

Simple things to make life a little easier

First let me say happy Veterans Day. A very grateful thank you for all that have served in our military forces. That is truly a brave and courageous act that should never be unrecognized by any citizen of the United States. I was supposed to have my yearly physical yesterday. It took me two months to get this appointment because of Covid. I was called early in the morning that the doctor had to cancel because she was unwell. I…

Fighting MS starts in your attitude

Fighting MS starts in your attitude

Yesterday during physical therapy the first thing we did was put me on the floor to get up. I just knew I had the strength to do it at this time and the first time I got myself up fairly quickly. So we did it for a second time. This time was harder, but I still managed to get myself up. My physical therapist said I can give you pointers but nobody knows their body better than you. One thing…

MS gym program exercise in a chair

MS gym program exercise in a chair

Can someone please explain this weather to me? One day I’m bundled in my sweatshirt putting on the heat. The next day I’m opening windows overheating at night under my blankets. No joke!!! I overheated last night in my bedroom. It made for a very long night. I had a super difficult time getting back into my bed after one of my bathroom trips that I really contemplated sleeping in my chair. I slept with my fan on once again….

Safety first doesn’t mean I’m safe

Safety first doesn’t mean I’m safe

I try to do the safe things, I really do. Even when I’m trying to be at my safest I still have issues. Let’s take last night as an example. My dad called as I was about to go to the ladies room, so I told him I’d call him back in a minute. On my way back, i safely maneuver my wheelchair directly in front of my comfy chair to make my transfer. Easy and safe. As I was…

My four walls of multiple sclerosis

My four walls of multiple sclerosis

I wrote this blog post on November 7, 2016. Almost 4 years ago to the day. I was originally going to just link it in this post when I realized I would probably be repeating the same general things. Obviously Covid has made my MS daily activities null and void but I’m not complaining. Truthfully my MS is much different 4 years later. I’m mostly in a wheelchair now. I’m in a new place, not my apartment anymore. Things are…

Weather, Infusion or just fatigue

Weather, Infusion or just fatigue

Yesterday was so rough. Like complete physical exhaustion rough. Wishing I didn’t have to use the bathroom rough. Each time I had to get up was so much effort. Is this still from the infusion? Or is this from the weather change? We’ve had some crazy weather changes over the last week in New York. One day it was 70° then all of a sudden it dropped to 50° I actually had the heat on one day. I was bundled…
