Working out with MS disability and weakness

Working out with MS disability and weakness

Good morning. I just finished my LesMills workout. I’ve been doing Sh’bam on there which is cardio dancing stuff. It’s fun but I wish I could be doing some of their other workouts like Grit or Pump but my body’s weakness doesn’t allow for that anymore. I have to revise all workouts I do to a chair. Then I have a problem holding weights. I’ve purchased hand weights that I wear like gloves and use them for all my workouts….

Multiple sclerosis symptoms in my head?

Multiple sclerosis symptoms in my head?

My doctor called yesterday because she received part of the results of my MRI. Turns out I have a bulging disc in my neck area on the right side. I at first thought, oh, that maybe could explain the tendonitis I’m having in my shoulder but that’s my left side. Unless they consider the right side when they are viewing in front of you in which case their right is my left. Then my doctor said maybe that could explain some…

Multiple sclerosis symptoms on vacation

Multiple sclerosis symptoms on vacation

I’ve figured out the key to my feeling good everyday, or I should say as good as possible, DO NOTHING. Let everyone do everything for you so you are very rarely getting up and you could have really good days everyday. I would need to hire myself a full time assistant to do everything for me their duties would include working out every morning but transferring the benefit to me making and bringing me my cup coffee making and bringing…

Vegan creamy potato curry soup

Vegan creamy potato curry soup

I had the best physical therapy session ever!!! Just one of those days where my legs were super strong and didn’t fatigue to the point I couldn’t walk, like they normally do.  I even had enough energy to get to the food store. I needed a few ingredients make my favorite soup.  Thought I’d do something different today and share a plant-based vegan soup recipe. I was just so happy how well today went I also had to share my…

The good days verses the bad days

The good days verses the bad days

I was asked today by my physical therapist how are you? I am sure anyone with a chronic disease thinks this is a loaded question. Actually a good friend of mine called me the other day and said, “I’ve learned so much about you and what you deal with on a daily basis from reading your blog. I never knew. Some of it makes me laugh, some makes me feel so bad that I can’t help you, but I never…

This sh$t ain’t easy

This sh$t ain’t easy

let’s be real here, if things were going well, I’d still be working. I’d go to work everyday, be around different people, be challenged, strive to be the best and probably be like 76% of the world, stressed out. However, I’m not well, I’m not stressed out like the 76% but my life isn’t easy.  I love the look I still get from some people when I tell them I don’t work anymore. You can see their mind questioning you…

My MS neurologist checkup

My MS neurologist checkup

I have 2 neurologists. One is a straight neurologist who diagnosed me 18+ years ago and has been with me since.  The other is a multiple sclerosis specialist in New York City who I’ve been seeing for about 2-3 years now.  Both of them work on different aspects of my MS. My neurologist is usually the symptoms manager. He prescribes the daily drugs I take. The specialist deals with which MS drug I’m on. The blood work, MRI scans and…
