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…

How do you feel after an infusion?

How do you feel after an infusion?

It’s funny because all my complaining last week about NOT getting my infusion leads to this: I feel awful. Please, please give me my medicine. Pump me up with all this shit so I can feel lousy.  kind of makes you wonder what the hell I was I fighting for. All anxiety for four days straight. All so I could feel horrible. Rituxan Infusion Finally Done but still wasn’t smooth. It never fails someone always asks me, does it…

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…

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…

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…

The truth about Parethesia, but it’s been a while since I actually said how I was feeling. I’ve had multiple sclerosis for 22 years now. My disease modifying therapy is…

Post Covid MS life

Post Covid MS life

So little Minx is doing great. He has, however, received a new nickname of demon because of his teething on anything flesh. Those little teeth hurt especially when he gets you under the arm. I’ve been doing a yelp, line he does,hoping he gets the idea of ouch. With a million teething toys on the floor, he still prefers the skin of my daughter and myself above them all. Other than that, I’m a little sleep deprived. I can’t even…

The strange MS symptoms back again

The strange MS symptoms back again

I haven’t talked about my MS in so long. It hasn’t been too bad, thankfully. I did end up on the floor after I worked out in the evening. Totally Rocked This I had this great work out but it did make me extremely tired and my recovery wasn’t quite on point. So transferring into my wheelchair didn’t go so well. I didn’t panic, or cry. It took me a little bit but I eventually got myself up and I…
