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 Sucks

Multiple Sclerosis Sucks

Hello to all. How are you feeling? Don’t we always hate that question? Multiple Sclerosis is a shitty disease. Have I said that recently? I remember I used to ask my neurologist every time I had an appointment, are you sure I have MS?” He always replied, “it wouldn’t be an appointment with you without you asking that question.” Unfortunately, the answer was always the same. Eventually I did stop asking him that question. I don’t know if it was…

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…

A Monday morning Rant

A Monday morning Rant

I’m sad, my daughter went back home to Maine today. I had a really nice visit with her this past week. She might have needed to come home for mom time but I definitely needed daughter time. I am just such a proud mom watching her start her life. She is in a new state, has made some really good friends and has become so much stronger standing on her own. I can’t even begin to say how amazed I…

New Year Intentions

New Year Intentions

Christmas is in two days. Another year has come and gone. I spent last New Years Eve in the hospital. I never could have imagined that 2022 would be such a difficult year for me. It was 22 my number. I thought great things were going to happen. https://multipleexperiences.org/2021/12/27/my-angel-number-22-and-the-new-year/ I wrote that post 3 days before I got sick. I was so excited that it was 2022. My head was stuck on the fact that 22 was my angel number…

Neurologist visits

Neurologist visits

I have to say this cold has kicked the shit out of me. I know taking Rituxan lowers my immune system but I honestly very rarely get sick. Even my issues in 2022 I was on Kesimpta, not Rituxan. The last cold I had was back in 2019 when I went on my last vacation. I went to Mexico with my family. I had the worst cold. I was miserable for the first 4 days of the week’s vacation. I…

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…

Welcome to my Online Therapy Group

Welcome to my Online Therapy Group

I have a question for my multiple sclerosis readers, how often do you come across other MSers on the same path as you? I have met many people with similar symptoms. I talk to many who were even diagnosed somewhat similarly. I don’t speak to many who have had the same progression path as me. There are always the similarities in the symptoms we face at certain points. The symptoms of MS are somewhat common as the disease progresses, at…

Ugh Multiple Sclerosis

Ugh Multiple Sclerosis

I’ve dealt with multiple sclerosis for 24 years yet I can still be surprised by its symptoms. You’d think I wouldn’t be shocked anymore. I had to spend most of my afternoon in my comfy chair. The exterminator was coming back, to treat my room, for the third time. It seems that the guy who boasted about his 12 year experience with bedbug, still missed the bedbugs alive in my room. He reported seeing nothing after I told him specifically…

Informing Employers of MS Diagnosis

Informing Employers of MS Diagnosis

I was thinking this weekend about when I worked. I’ve read a few MS blogs where people discussed when, if ever, do they disclose their disease to their employer? If you are new to my blog, I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis when I was 26. I’m 50 years old now. I became disabled when I was 44. That left a lot of years when I worked. I held my last position for 13 years with the same company but…
