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…

I don’t recommend Physical therapy during the summer

I don’t recommend Physical therapy during the summer

Before I start my blog I want to wish my dear friend Hindi a Happy 50th Birthday. I love you. Have the greatest day. I’m melting. I am fully inside with the AC cranking but I feel the heat inside my bones. I was trying to transfer to my comfy chair this morning and it took me 10 minutes. I didn’t fall but my legs were like jelly. I kept having to repositioning myself to get the right stance to…

Family weekend and a quiet week

Family weekend and a quiet week

Good morning. Happy Monday. I had a nice weekend myself, lots of family. I started with my stepmom coming in from Florida. She came Friday afternoon with my younger sister. It was a really nice visit. I missed her hugs. I haven’t seen her in probably 2 years because of Covid. My little sister I see every few weeks, which makes me happy. It is hard to believe a year ago she was living in San Francisco. She hasn’t been…

Today is a new day

Today is a new day

Yesterday was not such a great day. I wasn’t even able to get through my workout. I was interrupted by a trip to the bathroom that unfortunately showed my fatigue. I must give myself credit here because we all know I usually push instead of stopping. Persistent isn’t always a good thing. I had physical therapy later in the day and I did some walking. However I hit fatigue fairly quickly with that too. Things went downhill from there. The…

Physical therapy 1st appointment

Physical therapy 1st appointment

I can’t say enough good things about this guy. He is just a person size package of warmth and healing. It is nice to be the only one the therapist is focused on during an hour session as well. Even though my occupational therapist was from the same company, he was no where near the caliber of my physical therapist. My hour session were never an hour more like 30-40 minutes at best. I wasn’t complaining. He was more like…

New physical therapist

New physical therapist

I had my physical therapy evaluation yesterday at 3 o’clock. I thought the time alone would be a complete disaster. I worked out yesterday from 9 to 10 AM. I had my beautiful sister here from about 11 to 1:30. I I thought I was exhausted but oddly enough I really had a second wind. First I must honestly say I loved this guy. He comes into my house and the first thing he does is greet my dogs. The…

Occupational therapy in my home

Occupational therapy in my home

There’s been a lot going on this week and I’m not sure where to begin. After being traumatized this weekend, it was hard for me to even focus on everything that was happening, and a lot was happening. My new aide started on Monday, I got an OT evaluation to start that twice a week in the house, and Mikayla left. I’m also going for a urologist appointment on Friday to discuss the Botox in the bladder. I haven’t decided…

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…

My words are my actions

My words are my actions

One thing I can say about myself is I’m not a slacker. If I say I’m going to do something, I’m going to do it. I wrote about my weakness in my legs the other day My muscles are getting weaker. In the blog I realized I had to do something. So I first thought on safety. I can’t fatigue myself to the point I can’t transfer. My daughter has been so helpful when my aid isn’t around but she’s…

My muscles are getting weaker

My muscles are getting weaker

I have to be honest, my legs are super tired by the end of the night. I’ve been having some real issues getting myself into bed. Luckily my daughter has been around to assist and readjust my legs. My original thoughts were why? I’m resting most of the day after I exercise. Then it occurred to me, I’m moving even less now than the little I was moving before. This is bad. The more I’m in hibernation, the weaker I’m…
