Jumping from a plane

Jumping from a plane

Good morning. Another week starts again. It is grey looking outside. However the weekend was gorgeous. Open windows and fresh air, I love days like that. Having multiple sclerosis, I like when weather warms up but not when it gets hot. Unfortunately summer is right around the corner and that’s when the bad days will outnumber the good. I don’t have to explain this to anyone with MS, most people have this issue. That’s why I cherish those days with…

Possibly switching to Kesimpta

Possibly switching to Kesimpta

Happy Monday to everyone. I’m hoping the weekend was lovely for all. I was hit with some kind of stomach bug that disrupted my Saturday. That was the first time in a long time I felt those crippling stomach pains. Good to know I could still feel things in my belly. I must admit, sometimes I wonder since I never do. I mean I can stub my toe and go into a spasm that locks my legs up for a…

Pain with Multiple Sclerosis

Pain with Multiple Sclerosis

I get these pains, sometimes on my back or my side, out of nowhere. Usually along my bra line. Since I wear sports bras, this is a thicker band area. It always feels like there is something wrong on my skin in a certain area. Like a cut, rash or irritation except nothing is there when you look. The area is fine. No red spot even to show something coming up on the skin. It is completely normal. It just…

How fatigue affects life

How fatigue affects life

I’ve been so tired lately. I never really took in to account how my body would react to work being done in my place. I knew I would be shifted around slightly but didn’t think it was a big deal. I was clearly wrong. By the time the afternoon comes around I’m struggling to get myself to the bathroom. I’m back to dreading every time the need comes. Sometimes I’m so tired that the hesitancy I talked about recently Bladder…

The Routine

The Routine

I’m sure I’ve blogged about this at some point because I don’t do well with disruptions. The days of spontaneous activities have long been gone. I could never just meet someone for dinner at short notice. My life, or I should say my activities, are planned both mentally and physically. Everything I do requires a tremendous amount of effort. Everyday is different as to which activity will put me over the edge. The activity might be the same and the…

Bladder Hesitancy

Bladder Hesitancy

I’ve written so many blogs about my numerous “accidents” but I never discuss the other way. I actually experience both of them which is why Botox wasn’t an option for me. I dealt with hesitancy long before I dealt with the urgency and the accidents. What is urinary hesitancy mean? If you have trouble starting to urinate or maintaining urine flow, you may have urinary hesitancy. If you ever experienced hesitancy you know how it feels. Your bladder is full,…

Multiple Experiences is on vacation

Multiple Experiences is on vacation

I have to be honest, I’m not sure I still want to blog anymore. I have had this feeling once before over a year ago. https://multipleexperiences.org/2020/01/18/do-i-continue-to-blog/. At that time I realized I still loved writing about my life daily. I have poured my heart out in so many of these posts. I’ve shared every bad day and every embarrassing MS moment I deal with daily on the pages of multiple experiences. My stories are getting repetitive. I’m running out of…

I’m feeling ok, another infusion in the past

I’m feeling ok, another infusion in the past

It is beautiful out although slightly chilly. That doesn’t stop me from opening windows to let some fresh air through. I don’t mind the chill, it feels nice because the sun is hitting this side of the building. Once the sun starts to move I will start to freeze. The temperature is only 46 degrees out, not really windows open weather. It’s that sun hitting so directly that adds so much heat. It feels really nice. I’ve been feeling pretty…

Multiple sclerosis isn’t just my diagnosis

Multiple sclerosis isn’t just my diagnosis

I’m thankfully doing better today because I slept. Never under estimate the power of a good nights sleep. I was able to exercise a little this morning. I purposely decided to keep it simple and just do my MS gym exercises. There was an entire revamping of the MS gym and I actually started the from the very beginning again. That means the exercises aren’t as intense. I was pairing them with chair cardio everyday but knew that wouldn’t be…

Infusion or no sleep is kicking my ass

Infusion or no sleep is kicking my ass

I haven’t slept well for two nights now. I spent the first night with those belly issues and last night with bladder issues. I was using the bathroom every hour. I honestly think this was somehow related to the infusion. I have had nights where I’ve used the bathroom frequently but every hour is something that is a rarity. Yet that was my night. This is the second day in a row that I’ve hit my 12 hours of stand,…
