Gradual disease progression

Gradual disease progression

How are you feeling? Seems that this is always the question asked by everyone that knows me. Today, I asked myself. I have written many blogs about lack of sleep Sleep deprived, many about accidents A horrible and humbling outing, and even some on actual feeling How are you feeling? 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…

Bladder issues

Bladder issues

I’m not sure what exactly is going on with my bladder these days. I know I have issues, had them for years, but they’ve seemed somewhat worse over the last few weeks. I am not sure if I don’t have some kind of bladder infection. The problem is that is varies day to day, something bladder infection tend not to do. However between my water pills and Toviaz, who knows. Urinary tract infections don’t always cause signs and symptoms, but…

Not liking physical therapy

Not liking physical therapy

So after a second day of consuming a regiment of oregano oil and using Doterra Breathe, I got into bed sneezed once and never sneezed again. Achoo-ing through the night. Woke up fine. So strange!!!! I’m doing much better with the Provigil. I’m so happy to report. I am no longer waking up exhausted as if I never slept. That has been such a huge difference that I’ve been able to get back to my life. I have still been…

Another nursing evaluation

Another nursing evaluation

I had a nurse evaluation yesterday for the agency. Nothing shocking, mostly paperwork stuff. My medications were listed for the dosage and times I take them. I’m taking 9 different medications at 48 years old. That’s a lot of pills. If you include the vitamins it’s 17. A crazy number yet they all serve a purpose and that’s what the evaluator and I were discussing. Most I take at night because they cause drowsiness so I got the warning about…

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…

Happy 22nd anniversary multiple sclerosis

Happy 22nd anniversary multiple sclerosis

22 years ago started my second multiple sclerosis relapse that lead to my diagnosis five days later. My first was optic neuritis but by itself had no name. It was 6 months later on Valentine’s Day weekend when I moved into my new house and my left side started to go numb. What started in my foot quickly traveled through my entire left side up to my face. I had difficulty walking, muscle atrophy and numbness that would never fully…

Smiling through exhaustion

Smiling through exhaustion

Back to feeling rundown again. Spent yesterday morning in bed with a migraine. Migraine is gone but I’m still exhausted. I went into bed before 9pm yesterday and slept straight through until 4:30am. That is a record. I went back to sleep and woke up at 8:44. I had to take my car in first thing this morning otherwise I might have spent another morning in bed. This is a rough feeling as anyone with multiple sclerosis can tell you….

I am a Multiple Sclerosis Warrior

I have to say things in my family have been sad. Bad news received about a loved ones health has hit everyone hard. It puts having multiple sclerosis in its respected place. A place that has always helped me deal with my disease on a more positive level. I’m here!!! I didn’t receive a death sentence when I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. My disease could be difficult but I could still live a very rewarding life. I’m coming up…
