I swam a mile without proof

I swam a mile without proof

I finally did it. I counted and hit my goal of 35 laps which would equal 70 lengths and exactly 1 mile swam in my pool. HUGE difference than Tuesday when I barely made it 30 minutes swimming before my arms gave out. That day I couldn’t even get out of the pool. Go figure. It is just proof of of the good and bad days of multiple sclerosis. I was so excited hitting my goal, this was a big…

Swimming in not quite laps

Swimming in not quite laps

I have to laugh at myself. I went in my pool yesterday but it was murky. They had put chemicals in it to clear it up. I waited 30 minutes outside the pool for all the levels to be alright but it was still murky. I went swimming anyway because I was tired and wanted to swim at least for 30 minutes. I learned a valuable lesson. I can’t swim straight!!! I’d be swimming along and end up at a…

I love my condo

I love my condo

I love where I live. I’m sure I’ve said this 1000 times but I just have to repeat it again. I love everything about my condo. I love waking up with the sun shining into my room and standing up seeing the sun glistening off the water in the channel. I love seeing the boats. I love watching out my living room window out to the balcony seeing the whole open ocean both when it’s calm in the morning or…

Back in the pool

Back in the pool

I went swimming this morning for the first time in months. It isn’t that I don’t love swimming, because I do. It is difficult to shower and change and do my hair etc. It takes a lot of energy to do all those things and I deplete most of my energy in the pool. Today I knew I wasn’t doing anything other than the pool so I knew it would be a good day. I swam 52 minutes and 58…

A day with sisters

A day with sisters

My little sister is in from California today. Yippee. She has both my niece and nephew with her and I’m really excited to see them. It is hard having a sibling that is literally across the country. I don’t get to see her as often as I’d like. This is the one who is the closet thing I could have to a twin. She’s Jamie west and I’m Alyssa east. We just always seem to like the same things or…

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…

It’s pouring

It’s pouring

First day on vacation and it is completely pouring outside. Like monsoon pouring at times. My poor daughter is wearing a sweatshirt and sweatpants trying to stay warm. She’s had a headache all day partly from her cold and partly because of the weather. I’m sneezing now too which isn’t good. I too felt sick and last night I had to sleep in a bathrobe because I was freezing. Not off to the finest first day here but we are…

Jamie West Coast is on the East Coast

Jamie West Coast is on the East Coast

My little sister lives clear across the country. We have so much in common someone once said she’s Jamie West Coast and your Alyssa East Coast. That works for me. Today my sister is on the east coast with my niece and nephew. I don’t have all of my sisters together, since my older one is upstate, but 3 of us are. We all get along really well and I’m so excited. She is here until Wednesday, I think. We…
