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…

When life gives you lemons

When life gives you lemons

Not one of my better weekends. The humidity picked up significantly here and my body instantly felt the difference. I had a headache all day yesterday coupled with general weakness. Just made for a very tough day. I didn’t sleep well and of course that never helps. They’ve already started setting off fireworks around me. I learned that Minx HATES the noise they make. I can only imagine what he will be like as we get closer to July 4th….

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…

Rough day

Rough day

Rough day yesterday. I didn’t feel well when I woke up in the morning. I didn’t pay attention. I did my normal routine and was working out when Minx started eating something he shouldn’t. I reached down to pick up my grabber, which I myself knocked over, and literally fell out of the wheelchair. I got myself right back up but was unable to turn around and get myself back into the wheelchair and slid down again. My body was…

I have multiple sclerosis

I have multiple sclerosis

I have multiple sclerosis. Sometimes this disease makes it so difficult. I pray for a day that everything wasn’t so hard. Yet one day I’ll look back at days the way I am now wishing I could have these back. That’s the thing, I know in time, it will be worse. That’s a truly sobering thought, knowing for sure my MS will be worse. People ask how I have such a positive attitude, with the real knowledge I live with,…

Hoping for a better tomorrow

Hoping for a better tomorrow

Yesterday was not my greatest morning. Belly issues but I was able to avoid the mess of things by getting in the shower fast enough. I made it in the middle of the night and the morning. I was so proud of myself. Such a stupid thing to be proud of, yet I was. I was until I took a slip in the shower. It’s a small space and at first I held myself up slightly but I couldn’t hold…

Once again on the floor

Once again on the floor

Well unfortunately I had a tough morning. It seems my stomach is still having issues. I had to shower upon waking up this morning. I wish I knew what was causing all of this unsettling in my belly over the last few weeks. I’m scared to take anything because the fear of it binding and I experiencing the alternative is just as bad. However this leads me to make many trips necessary and unnecessary to the bathroom in fear of…

I’m kicking ass

I’m kicking ass

I’m doing a new program in the MS gym called standing strong. Yep has a lot to do with standing. I started phase 1 with my therapist. It had a lot of floor work as well as chair work. So I started integrating it with my previous program. I’m done with therapy but I really wanted to continue with this new program so I was determined to find something that I could make work without needing someone’s assistance to get…

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….
