What’s happening in Multiple Experiences world

What’s happening in Multiple Experiences world

I’m doing a lot better with my new wheelchair now. I don’t love everything about the chair but I am consistently using it now. It turns horribly, I hate that. It is also difficult if you maneuver wrong and hit a wall. You can’t just do a simple correction. You have to move forward or back still hitting the wall to maneuver yourself off the wall, if that makes sense. The wheels that move this chair are in the middle…

I’m going out…my wheelchair evaluation

I’m going out…my wheelchair evaluation

I’m going out into the zombie apocalypse tomorrow. Wish me luck. It will be my first time out in almost two weeks. I’ve been very good at hiding myself away to keep safe but now I must make an appearance. I finally got an appointment for a wheelchair evaluation at my physical therapy office. I’ve waited four months to be seen. I couldn’t decide to not go. They assured me that the staff is in masks and the gym is…

PT like it or not…

PT like it or not…

This might be brief. I just got home from my double therapy sessions. I am wiped out as expected. OT was challenging and PT was hard as expected. I can’t say I dislike my new PT therapist she knows what she is doing but makes me work. She is more focused on my exercises, all of them. Today she had me doing the leg press from the chair. I’ve done this a million times in therapy and found it to…

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…

Physical therapy, physically exhausting

Physical therapy, physically exhausting

I had my first physical therapy appointment of the year yesterday after my occupational therapy. I knew I’d be exhausted after but I completely underestimated how exhausted I’d actually be. It took me hours to be able to move out of my chair when I got home. Hours!!!! I’m working with a new therapist. She is very nice but she is going to be tough. No different then the other girls I’ve worked with but the difference is she is…

Les Millis Bodyjam Workout

Les Millis Bodyjam Workout

I’m setting up my blog the night before because tomorrow I start my double therapy sessions. First day back in physical therapy so I’m a little scared. Scared because I know it will be hard. On another note, I am always looking for fun new workouts that I can revise to work for me in a chair. I love dance workouts like Cize or Rockin Abs both from Shaun T on Beachbody. I have figured out how to bop in…

Dog tired occupational therapy hazard

Dog tired occupational therapy hazard

Occupational therapy kicked my ass today. I knew my first day back would be rough but wow, that was super duper tough. He started with these tiny little beads I had to put onto a shape. He let me do this with my hands. How nice of him. I had a star shape. This consumed the first 30 minutes of therapy. Trying to put those teeny tiny beads on the teeny tiny holes with my left hand. I was only…

Occupational therapy evaluation

Occupational therapy evaluation

So I went yesterday for an occupational therapy evaluation at the same place that I’ve been going to therapy for the past four years. However I only participated in OT last year. I never realized I could do both. When my insurance ran out last year I actually took a break for the first time. Normally when my insurance runs out I go on their maintenance program but this time I just decided to continue doing my own exercising at…

A quick short note today. Had occupational therapy this morning kicked my ass. Such a difference from last week of what I was able to do. I can’t be too upset because I know this routine. Some days are better than others and today wasn’t a great day. It is getting hot outside and the OT room was warm. I was sweating and I was appropriately dressed and doing very little. Another one of my MS symptoms is my body…

Go me…a good MS day!!!!

Go me…a good MS day!!!!

I went in my pool yesterday for the first time in almost 4 months. It’s the first time I even swam since the middle of January when I was away. My elevator was broken for so long and it is my elevator that is attached to the building with the pool. For me in my wheelchair, I have to go outside to get to the pool when my elevator is broken because otherwise there are steps. Other people wouldn’t have…
