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….

My aide is back and helpful tips from my Aunt

My aide is back and helpful tips from my Aunt

Hello again, it is once again Monday. I’m very happy to say my aide will be here today. Unfortunately, it will take me some time to recover from the last week doing it mostly alone. Even having food prepared and only doing what I absolutely had to do, it was a rough week. There is a reason I have an aide. I sometimes feel like it is really just to babysit me but truth is the amount of energy it…

My review of the massage gun

My review of the massage gun

I have to talk about my purchase of the massage gun. A massage gun for spasticity. I wanted one for some time but kept putting it off. They weren’t cheap. I kept thinking is they’d be like those massagers you got at drugstore that you used for a week and never used it again. These are NOT the ones sold at the drugstore. I learned that really fast. First thing these are super powerful. I have not had the power…

Multiple sclerosis issues at non opportune times

Multiple sclerosis issues at non opportune times

 today is going much better than yesterday. I even stayed in bed a little longer today which was nice. Then I got a whole Lotta Lovin from my puppies. I got up, fed everybody, brushed my teeth and worked out. I did my flexibility stuff and then finished yesterday’s workout. That always makes me happy . Not that I really doubted myself, but I’m glad I finished it. I don’t like things done halfway. Now I’m back on my…

A massage gun for spasticity

A massage gun for spasticity

Yesterday I purchased one of those massage guns. I’ve been looking at them for a while because sometimes I’m in such pain from spasticity. Last night was one of those nights where out of nowhere my whole back a neck tightened. I always describe this like someone took a fork and twisted it like they were trying to get spaghetti twirled around. Except it’s not spaghetti it’s my tendons. The area just becomes so tight so fast. It starts at…

Ugh frustrated

Ugh frustrated

I’m in a crabby mood today. I’m frustrated. They finally called me about my wheelchair at 5:30 last night. I didn’t recognize the number so I didn’t pick it up and they told me to call back. Of course they close at five so calling back did nothing. I’ve been dealing with this chair that looks like this It has been incredibly difficult let alone not safe. I’m frustrated trying to maneuver and not hit things because I’m steering almost…

Goal accomplished

Goal accomplished

I accomplished the really hard workout that took me down last week. Persistent isn’t always a good thing. Not only did I accomplish it, I doubled up exercises that weren’t squats. I kicked butt. This doesn’t even include the warmup that I forgot to start my Apple Watch. I would have had an additional 15 minutes but my heart rate average would have been lower. Not a bad workout with resistance bands. For my age and disability that is a…

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…
