My multiple sclerosis affects everyone

My multiple sclerosis affects everyone

I’ve written blogs about this in the past, my daughter at 17 takes on the bulk of the responsibility. It’s not something a 17-year-old signs up for, and she’s been doing it for years.  My mother takes on the brunt of the emotional side of my multiple sclerosis. Another topic of my blogs that you could find throughout. My step dad takes on the emotional backlash of what my mom takes on, breaking his heart. Plus he’s the one taking me to…

The annoying but harmless guy in physical therapy

The annoying but harmless guy in physical therapy

I’ve been going to physical therapy since November 2016. The way my insurance works is I get 20 calendar visits per year.  I started in 2016 so it just worked out that I was able to do many months in a row. My physical therapy actually runs an amazing program that after this  physical therapy set up, I could pay a monthly fee and use everything in the gym, only giving up with the physical therapist actually have to do, which…

I am protesting the Veggie Burger

I am protesting the Veggie Burger

The only thing I miss, being a vegetarian, is a really good hamburger. Maybe we could throw on some cheese and bacon with that. Slap on a little ketchup. Some really burnt french fries.  I mean if you’re going to go there, might as well go there right. I really don’t miss meat. I’ve had no problem giving it up. I’ve been a vegetarian now since December 2, and except for an occasional dairy product (like 1\2 & 1\2 in my coffee), I…

Good morning Monday

Good morning Monday

it’s the beginning of another week. Kind of strange when you don’t work because you’re weeks don’t normally run like a workday week. However every Monday is physical therapy and my daughter is back to school so I still consider it the start of the week.  March is my last month of physical therapy, then it becomes a self-pay. They run a really great program called strive. You pay a monthly fee and you can use the gym and equipment…

Who wants to date someone with multiple sclerosis?

Who wants to date someone with multiple sclerosis?

I’m afraid to date.  I’m afraid to be rejected again. I’m afraid to be hurt again. I’m afraid to fall in love again. I’m afraid of the pain. I’m afraid to have to explain the embarrassing MS symptoms again.  I’m afraid of the embarrassment again. I’m afraid of the anxiety again. I’m even afraid of the excitement of it again. I’m afraid of the hope of it again.  I’m afraid of the beginning, the middle, and the end. I’m just…

Dating with Multiple Sclerosis, when I’m ready

Dating with Multiple Sclerosis, when I’m ready

For the first time at probably two months I answered someone on match.com. I’m still under the same feeling that I don’t want to date, so I don’t really know why I reply, but her did.  The conversation went back-and-forth for a bit and then I asked the question; did you actually read my profile, are you aware that I have a mess and I use a walker? Silence!!! I can’t say that I didn’t purposely say that for a…

What is a multiple sclerosis good day?

What is a multiple sclerosis good day?

What is a multiple sclerosis good day? It’s obviously different for everybody.  Everybody has different symptoms, different challenges, different feelings and different things that they deal with in their daily life. So unfortunately, I can’t speak for everybody, I can only give my opinion. I want to say that I feel that anybody that has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis is a warrior.  If you’re newly diagnosed, and you’ve come through your relapse, you might have come off the battlefield, for now….

Forks over knives Vegan No-Tuna Salad Sandwich

Forks over knives Vegan No-Tuna Salad Sandwich

I have have a new favorite recipe. I’ve wanted to try this for a while and I finally whipped it together last night for dinner. First let me say, except for the Tahini, it was super easy. Yesterday was the first time I ever used Tahini. I ended up using my mini Cuisinart to mix it together, as instructed on the can. That was impossible to do. Is it supposed to be that difficult?The inside was hard and the top…

A multiple sclerosis life coach

A multiple sclerosis life coach

When you go to group meetings on the specific subjects, normally you talk about that subject. When I joined my MS support group,  I guess I thought it would be more of a round circle kind of discussion group. I’ve definitely have walked away with information that is very useful.  I’ve made friends that have been a wonderful additions.  I just thought it would be more of a support group of people talking of issues, frustrations and feelings. I didn’t…
