A tough morning

A tough morning

I’ve added my Beachbody workouts back into my morning. I know that I push my body to its limit when I do these. I also know my body needs a long recovery time. I usually plan accordingly. Today, I didn’t plan on issues with Zoey too. I had to stop my workout to “clean up” after Zoey. Not normally a big deal but my legs were already 20 minutes into the workout. I ended up sliding down on the floor….

When in doubt, blame multiple sclerosis

When in doubt, blame multiple sclerosis

When I first was diagnosed, maybe in the first 10 years, I have to admit any little thing I felt I used to think immediately it was the multiple sclerosis. It took me a while to kind of know how MS showed in my body, really what MS was, and how it was going to affect me. Now that it’s been 20 years, I think what I find amazing is when other doctors don’t have an answer so they blame…

MS fall frustration

MS fall frustration

It’s Sunday and I usually post a song or a recipe. I kind of take the day off with the blog. However today I’m gonna write a quick post about falling. I still fall a lot. I walk with a walker all the time but I still have moments that I can explain I just lose balance. I was on the side of my bed, cleaning up my dog area, my bed and the wall right next to me and…

My 20 year anniversary with multiple sclerosis

My 20 year anniversary with multiple sclerosis

It just dawned on me, that February 14 was my 20 year anniversary with MS. It was the weekend of February 14 that I was moving it to my house with my ex-husband. My left leg started to feel numb. The numbness started traveling up my leg through my muscles. I wasn’t just numb, my muscles were becoming week and atrophied. It was The following Friday I went to a family doctor who sent me immediately to this neurologist. To…

My day in the emergency room

My day in the emergency room

I’m putting on my shoes to go to the doctor about the swelling that’s going on in my lower legs, ankles and feet. I noticed that maybe the right one looked a little less swollen, but I put my shoes on anyway so I can go to the doctor. When I got to the doctor a game plan was almost already in place before she even looked down at my feet. She touch my feet, she looked at the rapid…

Look how far I’ve come

Look how far I’ve come

My ex-boyfriend has always read my blog. I confronted him about it maybe five months ago, I question why he read my blog. I wondered was it his narcissistic mind that made him read it my blog or was it that he actually gave a shit. His reply was what do you think? I always knew it was him because he go on in a specific way after he got blocked from Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn etc. I have a post…

Swollen extremities…now what?

Swollen extremities…now what?

Going to the doctor tomorrow. Let’s see what this is all about. My whole weekend I was away my feet were swelling. My mom said it’s because of the airplane. I don’t know, it might be. I flew down Thursday night could barely get my shoes on every day I was down in Florida and then I flew home Monday. I just think my shoes were tight before this but I’m not sure. It certainly wasn’t as bad. My aide…

Home again

I love my condo. Yesterday when I walked in I dropped everything so I can greet my dogs.… So surprising!!! I miss them. I was so excited to see them. That’s the only thing about vacations. I will love being away seeing my family, but I just miss the dogs. Anyway after many kisses, I got up and assessed my condo. I’ve use the same dog sitter for a very long time. I truly love her she’s like my family…

Me and my MS got along well on vacation

Me and my MS got along well on vacation

You have to be thankful for the small things. I’m grateful that my multiple sclerosis “issues” were handled effectively for my stay in Florida, despite the heat. I know both my dad and stepmom are nervous. They aren’t around me daily and the symptoms of my MS scare them. It’s more the fears of the falls I think. I did fall but neither of them were in their presence. One was me once again sliding off the toilet. What’s with…
