Doctors, doctors and more doctors

Doctors, doctors and more doctors

I’ll start this with the doctor for my shoulder tendonitis. I went to see him yesterday. Still flying high from my amazing weekend at my spirit junkie master class, I think I even put the doctor in a good mood.  Being that my case is slightly different from other tendonitis cases, I can’t ever rest the arm because I use it with the walker, he was able to give me a Cortizone shot early. He was actually singing as he injected…

Why continue to exercise with multiple sclerosis

Why continue to exercise with multiple sclerosis

“Exercise is essential not just for overall well-being, but also to help manage symptoms of multiple sclerosis (MS). In fact, exercise might even slow progression of the disease, according to a 2012 review published in Therapeutic Advances in Neurological Disorders.” This was according to everyday health. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society says basically the same thing and adds, “An exercise program needs to fit the capabilities and limitations of the individual. It may need to be adjusted as changes occur in…

Multiple sclerosis symptoms in my head?

Multiple sclerosis symptoms in my head?

My doctor called yesterday because she received part of the results of my MRI. Turns out I have a bulging disc in my neck area on the right side.

Unless they consider the right side when they are viewing in front of you in which case their right is my left. Then my doctor said maybe that could explain some…

My MRI epiphanies and me

Why do I like going to an MRI?  I can tell you it’s not for the results. I’ve had multiple sclerosis for 19 years, the MRI’s show what they are going to show. However, I used to get them on average two…

Forks over Knives Vegan Chef Del’s Mushroom Stroganoff

Forks over Knives Vegan Chef Del’s Mushroom Stroganoff

Anyone that knows me knows I don’t cook. I just don’t like it but I know my way around the kitchen. As my multiple sclerosis worsened cooking became even more difficult. I have limited time I can stand on my feet, over a stove or cook top. I also have limited time I can cut and chop before my hands fatigue. Many times I will prepare a dish only to not be able to eat because my hands literally cannot…

Smoking and multiple sclerosis

Smoking and multiple sclerosis

I was driving and my iPod was shuffled playing random songs from my entire music collection. My favorite things when driving were music and smoking. I could drive for hours smoking with the music cranking, loud. I quit smoking years ago for the final time. I didn’t wait for the last cigarette of the pack, I didn’t even throw out what was left of the pack. I woke up one day and said enough. I can’t smoke anymore. It messed…
