Exercise in a pool for MS

Exercise in a pool for MS

I went in the pool. Finally!!! I was the only one in there. I can’t swim anymore. My legs can’t kick. My legs actually can’t even get high enough in the water and I usually end up going under. The truth is I probably could do more but I was trying not to get my hair wet. Let’s be real, with multiple sclerosis there’s only so much energy I have. To go in the pool for the first time in…

Tendonitis go away

Tendonitis go away

I worked out yesterday for the first time in a month. I was trying to really give my shoulder the time to heal, as recommended by my orthopedic doctor and my physical therapist. I’ve been suffering for almost a year now with tendonitis. My last appointment with the doctor was in early June and I received another cortisone shot. The shots definitely help but can only be given once every 3-4 months and even then is not a great solution….

Weekly weigh-in, vegan check-in, infomercial purchase

Weekly weigh-in, vegan check-in, infomercial purchase

I came home from physical therapy, completely spent. I put on the television and there was an infomercial on for the Veggie Bullet. Within 13 seconds I was online checking it out.  I use a Cuisinart food processor that I received as an engagement gift. Let’s just say that if I was still married, yesterday, May 25, would’ve been my 21st Anniversary.  So the Cuisinart was an engagement gift which was easily received a year before that. It mostly works fine…

U2 Every Breaking Wave-Acoustic

Today my arm was hurting so much I couldn’t work out. Couldn’t even do Zumba in a chair because my arm couldn’t do the moves. I am extremely frustrated and just deflated. 8 years I’ve woke up and workout. I’m now on 4 days I haven’t with Sunday being my normal day off. Doesn’t even make a difference. My MS was still awful without working out anyway. My arm, this stupid tendonitis or tendinitis (not sure on spelling) affects everything. I can’t…

Up all night and it wasn’t a party

Up all night and it wasn’t a party

ALL NIGHT!!! I may have slept for twenty minutes at the most. I know at some point my dogs started playing with each other like it was the afternoon. One of them was sick, I was cleaning up my floor at wee hours of the morning. I was crying because when I’m that tired and can’t sleep I get very frustrated and cranky.  I can’t take not sleeping. It’s just the worst thing that could happen t me. It’s this…

Perseverance, persistent or just plain stubborn

Perseverance, persistent or just plain stubborn

I don’t know which one I am take your pick. If you haven’t read my post for the last couple of days, I had an incident. I slid to the floor and I wasn’t able to get up.  One of the culprits could’ve been the fact that I increased one of my medicines, Gabapentin which is the generic form of Neurontin, due to the pain in my shoulder from tendonitis. I increased it on Sunday, and the incident happened on…

Just a quiet Wednesday

Just a quiet Wednesday

It’s strangely quiet in my house, which is weird when everyone is home. Mikayla is sleeping next to me, she woke up with a migraine so is going into school late. Marshy, who just got his vaccinations at the vet yesterday, is under the blanket. Zoey is sleeping next to me and in about an hour is going to the vet for her surgery. Me, I just did my Zumba, sitting on the couch, trying to recover my legs. I…

Not the happiest Friday in the home

Not the happiest Friday in the home

I FINALLY had my shoulder checked out by an orthopedist yesterday. He did some maneuvering, X-rays and a visual exam. He told me “there are actually 2 problems going on.” Of course there are, because nothing is simple. “You have tendinitis in the shoulder for sure but your back also is showing arthritis”.  More of the fabulous news. I had junior arthritis as a kid, arthritis is my knees with cysts and now in the back. Ok great now what?…
