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…

Why me?

Why me?

Living with a chronic illness, there has to be at least one time you’ve  said, “why me”. Let me ask you a question, if you can take your disease and give it to somebody else, knowing how you suffer, would you?  I remember being in one of my doctor, with my step dad, and him making a comment about why I had to have MS. The life this disease has stolen from his daughter.  My reply was, maybe there is a reason…

Almond butter freezer fudge(vegan and non-vegan way)

Almond butter freezer fudge(vegan and non-vegan way)

This recipe came to me from my sister. I’m not sure what cookbook it is from. The original recipe calls for honey. HONEY IS NOT VEGAN. The reason why is because it is manufactured by farmed bees, bees are technically an animal. Bees make honey to feed the bee larvae. In a sense, similar to dairy. Not to mention on the social side, bees are often killed during the harvesting process. To make this recipe vegan substitute the honey for:…

My current list of medications for my MS

My current list of medications for my MS

With any chronic Illness, I think our medicine cabinet becomes a small pharmacy. I thought I’d give a list of what I am taking for my multiple sclerosis, the dosage and the reason. I’ve included links to my other posts if I have information that I thought was useful on a particular drug or vitamin. This post is an added plus for me. I can print and give to doctors instead of rewriting each drug I take on their medical…

My MRI epiphanies and me

My MRI epiphanies and me

I’m scheduled for an MRI today I am looking forward to it. I think I touched upon this topic one other time but since I haven’t had an MRI since I started blogging, I’m talking about it again. 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…

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…
