I needed that

I needed that

I didn’t wake up in such a cheery mood today. Very unlike me too. Even when the first thing I see when my eyes open would be the faces of my babies, I still wasn’t really happy. I had a long day yesterday and I canceled my kidney sonogram. I just couldn’t deal with drinking 64 ounces of water before a test that I know I could never hold in. I mean I went to the doctor for incontinence. How…

Light at the end of the tunnel

Light at the end of the tunnel

Day two of waking up and not feeling tired. I can’t even put into words how great that is. I am starting to feel more like myself. I still was in bed by 8 yesterday and sleeping before 9. I also had no strength in my legs and had to transfer directly from my wheelchair to my bed. Yet all that is ok because I woke up peppy and smiling. I woke up in good spirits with energy and it…

I am back with a home health agency

I am back with a home health agency

Today is the first day I woke up not feeling tired. It was such a wonderful feeling. I haven’t had that in so long. I can’t say how the rest of my day will go but for all my bitching lately it was nice to start off my blog with some good news. I still canceled playing mahjong today. Unfortunately I knew that I probably wouldn’t have the stamina to last too long. However I still worked out. I even…

I showered, I’m exhausted

I showered, I’m exhausted

What can I say. I’ve been like a lump on a couch. I showered today, go me!! I’m exhausted 😴. I was exhausted when I woke up. My eyes feel swollen after I slept for almost 12 hours. How much more can one person say about fatigue? I’ve done nothing so I have nothing to blog about. I can tell you I’m tired of people saying me too. Anyone with multiple sclerosis or chronic illness knows there is a huge…

One day at a time

One day at a time

Still unfortunately feeling shitty. Once again canceling activities. The good news is I’m sleeping better, that really helps. Of course I’m a few weeks away from my infusion of Rituxan which had issues last time.Whether the issues were actually caused by the infusion or not, we still don’t know, but my concern is there to say the least. https://multipleexperiences.org/2019/09/17/blisters-on-breast/. Not to mention you always feel somewhat fatigued after you do the infusion so the whole thing has bad timing. I…

A choice to exercise

A choice to exercise

Happy Monday. My aid just told me I look tired. I’m always tired. I can sleep for 24 hours and I’d still wake up tired. I just did my little cardio workout but i was tired. It doesn’t ever matter, I’ve just learned to push through the feeling as I have always done. I bought a treadmill way back when I was still married living in my house. It was used for a total of a month tops before it…

I need the alone time physically and mentally

I need the alone time physically and mentally

It’s beautiful out a cool 63 degrees and I still have to have my AC on. The only downside to my condo is it’s angle. If the wind is blowing the wrong way this condo gets no air and can become hot with the morning sun. Today is that kind of day. There is no breeze out there. I hate that. I love having all the windows open and a cool breeze blowing and I’ve been robbed of it this…

I swam a mile without proof

I swam a mile without proof

I finally did it. I counted and hit my goal of 35 laps which would equal 70 lengths and exactly 1 mile swam in my pool. HUGE difference than Tuesday when I barely made it 30 minutes swimming before my arms gave out. That day I couldn’t even get out of the pool. Go figure. It is just proof of of the good and bad days of multiple sclerosis. I was so excited hitting my goal, this was a big…

Tough morning

Tough morning

I got rid of the migraine that I had for three days straight. Nothing worked until I used a little medicinal marijuana for the first time in years. That at least took the edge off because it helped release the spasticity through my back. I woke up this morning ready to take on the day pain free. I wanted to swim this morning first thing. I was excited to once again try to hit my mile goal swimming laps. I…

Couldn’t hold myself up

Couldn’t hold myself up

This wasn’t good. I went to play mahjong for the second time yesterday. It is a game like rummy cube with Asian tiles. Your hands must match to an approved hand on a card. You play with four people around a square table taking turns picking and throwing tiles. Not very strenuous unless you have some type of multiple sclerosis symptom making it difficult. I had that MS symptom. At first I was fine, other than my game itself. However…
