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…

I’m in a mood today

I’m in a mood today

I wasn’t feeling well all day yesterday. I actually napped most of the day. Well I had the TV on and my eyes closed. For me that’s pretty much napping. I just didn’t feel well. No fever, no aches but my muscles felt sore. That was the best way for me to describe it. I went to sleep early but unfortunately that didn’t go off quite as I intended. At about 2 o’clock I was woken up with bathroom issues….

New Apple Watch fitness suggestions

New Apple Watch fitness suggestions

I have a bond to pick with my Apple Watch. In the fitness settings there should be a track for disabled. That track should be worth double of that of a person who is well because each move for me is 10 times harder. My heart rate tracker I’ll never understand, I’m huffing and puffing and it’s saying like 109. I think as someone disabled I should be earning double the calories burned as well as earning double the time…

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….

Today is a new day

Today is a new day

Yesterday was not such a great day. I wasn’t even able to get through my workout. I was interrupted by a trip to the bathroom that unfortunately showed my fatigue. I must give myself credit here because we all know I usually push instead of stopping. Persistent isn’t always a good thing. I had physical therapy later in the day and I did some walking. However I hit fatigue fairly quickly with that too. Things went downhill from there. The…

A bad day can be just that, a day

A bad day can be just that, a day

For the many bad days of multiple sclerosis, there are better ones as well. Yesterday was one of those days. I started off with a workout as usual. My energy level was definitely high and I was able to double up on all the arm exercises. I had one of those workouts where I was sweating and my heart was pumping. I was tired but in a good way when I was finished. The way you should feel after a…

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…

Persistent isn’t always a good thing

Rough morning and it was completely my fault. I decided to wear jeans today for the first time in 8 months. I figured now that I’m wearing this nightgown to bed, let’s not dress like a slob. I got my pants on with a little effort. I don’t unbutton or unzip my jeans since it is difficult for my hands to latch buttons. My pants fit but they usually come up with slightly less effort. I’m not sure if it…

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…
