Live from the living room floor

Live from the living room floor

This blog is coming to you live from my living room floor. I did not make my transfer well after my exercises and slid off of my comfy chair. I was in perfect position to get myself up but knew I had one shot at it. My legs failed and back down I went. After flopping around on the floor trying to change positions, I finally gave up. My aide will be here soon I don’t think my puppies mind…

Rituxan Infusion Tomorrow

Rituxan Infusion Tomorrow

I called the pharmacy first thing this morning and they reassured me that my Rituxan will be delivered first thing tomorrow morning. I am not going to call my infusion nurse and I’m going to hope for the best. Normally my infusions don’t go smoothly. There always seems to be a problem somewhere through the process. When the pharmacy changed I thought, great another infusion to give me agitation. Then it was all arranged weeks in advance. I was shocked….

Ocrevus Commercial

Ocrevus Commercial

I never watch TV through my TV carrier. I always watch through my Firecube. No matter what it is, unless it’s something that I record, I’m never on my TV. That being said, it’s also very rare I see commercials. However I was catching up on old Bravo shows that I neither recorded or watched while they aired. On the Bravo app, there’s commercials. When you’re watching an entire season of some thing you end up watching a lot of…

My new aide

My new aide

I’m very happy to report that my new aide is extremely nice, has been helpful but most importantly likes my dogs. If the person couldn’t get along with my dogs then they couldn’t get along with me. It’s only been three days now compared to my last aide of 3 years so of course there is an adjustment. Thankfully, it is not at all as difficult as I thought it could be. She lives with her sister and brother very…

Occupational therapy in my home

Occupational therapy in my home

There’s been a lot going on this week and I’m not sure where to begin. After being traumatized this weekend, it was hard for me to even focus on everything that was happening, and a lot was happening. My new aide started on Monday, I got an OT evaluation to start that twice a week in the house, and Mikayla left. I’m also going for a urologist appointment on Friday to discuss the Botox in the bladder. I haven’t decided…

The horrible weekend tale. Multiple Sclerosis at it’s worst

The horrible weekend tale. Multiple Sclerosis at it’s worst

What I don’t understand is how are you supposed to prevent things from happening? If there was something I could’ve done, I would’ve done it. What is a person with a disability supposed to do when they are alone? I just can’t understand how this situation not only could’ve been prevented but could’ve been done with any dignity whatsoever. This is the part of multiple sclerosis that I find so unfair. The embarrassment and the shame that I felt is…

I could write about my horrific Saturday night and Sunday morning I will write about it, eventually. I honestly am completely traumatized by the events that took placed. Yet I will tell the tale because i promised when I started this blog complete honesty. However I am just not ready to retake the tale yet. That’s how bad it was. So instead I’m going to leave you with a video that my dad sent me Perfect video for a great…

A wheelchair function helped me off the floor

A wheelchair function helped me off the floor

My daughter is packing because she’s leaving today not tomorrow. My aide of three years had her last day with me yesterday. My new aide starts Monday and is working 11-7. Not exactly the hours I wanted to change them too but it is still is better than my original hours. I can now do my normal morning routine. I prefer working out when no one is around. I always did. Now I’ll have the morning to myself. What could…

Botox for Bladder Incontinence

Botox for Bladder Incontinence

I had a comment yesterday by Mary suggesting Botox for my many trips and accidents with the bathroom the other night. Waking up to use the bathroom all night long. I’ve heard of this treatment option but I’ve never looked into it for the one thing she mentioned, you have to self catheterize. Patty concurred with that comment this morning too. However, Mary started me thinking. I would love not having accidents anymore. I would love to stop worrying every…
