Wrong season to try to date

Wrong season to try to date

Summer is a great season. It’s many people’s favorite. Being outside at the beach, on a boat, or at a pool basking under the sun’s warmth. However when you have multiple sclerosis, or any neurological disease, chances are it is not. As that temperature rises outside all of the MS symptoms act up making it a difficult season. This is called the Uhthoff Phenomenon. Uhthoff’s phenomenon (also known as Uhthoff’s syndrome, Uhthoff’s sign, and Uhthoff’s symptom) is the worsening of neurologic symptoms in multiple sclerosis (MS) and…

I joined plenty of fish

I joined plenty of fish

I signed up again. I honestly have no idea how this will work. Do I bring my aid on a coffee date? I mean really. I am not sure what made me join again. Once again it didn’t let me at first but then I was able to under one of my other email accounts. My first line in the about me section is I am a Multiple Sclerosis Warrior. I say I’ve had the disease for 21 years. My…

My baby girl

My baby girl

My baby girl left today to go back to college. It was so hard. It was harder this time than it was when she left in August. My house feels really quiet. I know she’s not going to be walking back through the door tonight and I’m so sad. I’m so glad that she loves college. There is nothing I wanted more for her than to have an amazing college experience. She loves Albany most of the time. She’s just…

Plenty of fish rejection

Plenty of fish rejection

I took the plunge and rejoined plenty of fish. I had to re-enroll because every time I tried to retrieve my password, that I have forgot, it never sent me the link. So I answered all the questions, set up my profile and uploaded pictures. I got a phone call so I left the app before I had a chance to browse. When I came back it logged me out. I tried to put in the new password that I…

It’s just me, myself and I

It’s just me, myself and I

Oh, it’s just me, myself and I Solo ride until I die ‘Cause I got me for life Oh I don’t need a hand to hold Even when the night is cold I got that fire in my soul I woke up singing this song this morning. It’s easy to feel that way with a chronic illness. Especially if you’re single. It’s not that I don’t have a great family, I do. It’s not that I don’t have great friends,…

Daughter’s decision on college transfer

Daughter’s decision on college transfer

Wasn’t in the mood to get up this morning. My bladder on the other hand had other ideas. I have physical therapy anyway this morning. My daughter got home from her spring break vacation. She was up really early too. A rarity but it was nice to sit and talk to her. She is transferring colleges for next year. She applied to 5 New York State schools. We were hoping she’d get into 3 of the 5 knowing that she’d…

I know there was wine…

This is the first day I am actually Writing my blog from my balcony. My new furniture came in yesterday. It’s very pretty. I open my sliding glass door got some air coming in. The sun is beating down on my face causing me to sweat a little. Truthfully I need to sweat a little, sweat out some of the alcohol from last night. I don’t know what it is about my firestick friend, when he comes over we seem…

You know when you can wake up and know it’s gonna be a bad day? I’ve been on the floor four times already today and it wasn’t from falling.

This is the third time that it’s happened while I was asleep.WTF???? Is this going to be something…

The first kiss was the last kiss

The first kiss was the last kiss

I shared my story of my kiss last week. It was nice. The truth is I shut myself off from all relationships for over a year. That was my first kiss in 14 months. However, I’m pretty sure it was the last kiss with him. I’ve spoken to him a couple of times since then, but I think we’re going to be friends and that’s OK. When I turn this over to the universe I said the best outcome for…

It started out with a kiss

It started out with a kiss

Well add one part wine, brought by him, two parts attraction and a little honesty and what do you get? A kiss. I’m in sweatpants and a sweatshirt, not my most attractive look, but not expecting the nights events either. Maybe i would have shaved and put on some make up. Definitely would have changed into something more appealing but I neither expected this nor though it would happen tonight. Guess what? Interest laid on both sides. I gave my…
