Bike for MS

Bike for MS

Once again my brother is training for his 50 mile bike ride for multiple sclerosis. Each year he does this fundraiser in my name. Raising money riding a bike, something I’ve been unable to do for at least 8 years. Please help us find a cure for all of those who suffer daily but are still warriors. https://www.facebook.com/donate/157731676220745/?fundraiser_source=external_url Why We Want to Create a World Free of MS It’s now 13 years ago when I said I wanted to ride…

Multiple sclerosis is physical and mental

Multiple sclerosis is physical and mental

I had physical therapy again yesterday which once again ended up disappointing. I walked less than I ever walked in these sessions of PT. I woke up feeling good. I did my normal morning routine. I felt good and then I started getting tired. Therapy was at 12 and by that time I was already feeling fatigued. I was determined to walk but my body wasn’t matching my will. It was pathetic and frustrating from the first step. Why??? This…

Rediscovering Dark Side of the Moon

Rediscovering Dark Side of the Moon

I forgot to take my nighttime pills before bed the other night. I should have realized when I was still awake after 11 o’clock. I was tired but unable to sleep. My leg was twitching, my neck was having little spasms and I don’t want to discuss what my stomach was doing. I can say it was the attention on my stomach that made me fall to realize why I was twitching. I’ve had a bunch of nights I forgot…

MS won this time

MS won this time

I had a very disappointing physical therapy session yesterday. I walked about a hallway and a half. The second full hallway still being my goal but once again escaping my grasp. I got tired and tried to sit for a second or two before I started my trek home. That was probably the beginning of the bad decisions. The upright walker isn’t easy to turn around with but even harder when you are trying to turn around to sit. There…

Positive quotes for multiple sclerosis

Positive quotes for multiple sclerosis

I had a lousy physical therapy session yesterday. Actually pathetic was more like it. Lousy multiple sclerosis day and I have no idea why. My physical therapist says he wished he had a manic pill to cure MS. I would settle for a pill that gave me the day off or even an hour off. I miss being able to dance. I’m watching this tv show about dancing and I could never move the way they do. However what I…

Kesimpta was approved

Kesimpta was approved

I broke my glass coffee pot this weekend. This seems to happen every two years if not yearly. I do have to say the last time I wasn’t the one who broke it but I shouldn’t brag because I’m pretty sure every other time it was me. I don’t buy expensive coffee pots for this precise reason but I really hated my last purchase. I always put cinnamon in my coffee grinds and this basket constantly caused the caused the…

Kesimpta was denied

Kesimpta was denied

My neurologist and I decided we were going to switch to Kesimpta by my next infusion date. https://multipleexperiences.org/2021/04/26/possibly-switching-to-kesimpta/. My doctor wanted to start the process in July although my next infusion date isn’t until September. We entered the prescription into the pharmacy to start the process. It was less than 24 hours later that I received the denial from my insurance. The denial reason was that this medication wasn’t necessary and there may be other medication that can met my…

Determined to walk

Determined to walk

These weeks are going by super fast. It’s Friday again already. Obviously, guess I didn’t really need to point that out. I just feel like things have been on hyper drive lately. It’s bizarre. I mean we are already through half of the year 2021. Didn’t we just celebrate the New Year? Does time speed up as you get older? I turn 50 this year, in November. I remember throwing a surprise party for my mom when she turned 50….

Distended stomach, possibly the MS Hug

Distended stomach, possibly the MS Hug

My Firestick is set up with a photo album called puppies. It is the random pictures that are used on the screen like a screensaver. I have over 300 photos in that album and yet the same pictures would appear every single time. It has been this way for 6+ months. All of a sudden this past week it is showing some of the older photos in that album. I’m seeing pictures of my Boomer and Marshmallow I haven’t seen…

Purging out the dresser

Purging out the dresser

I slept in today, didn’t get out of bed until 9am. It’s 11:15 and I just finished an hour of exercise. I’m drinking my first sip of coffee. I had a good weekend. I watched the entire season 4 of the Handmaids Tale. I am still processing my thoughts on that one. I also took my daughter to the train really early Sunday morning. She went to visit her boyfriend who is moving to Maine. NY to Portland, Maine is…
