Tendonitis go away

Tendonitis go away

I worked out yesterday for the first time in a month. I was trying to really give my shoulder the time to heal, as recommended by my orthopedic doctor and my physical therapist. I’ve been suffering for almost a year now with tendonitis. My last appointment with the doctor was in early June and I received another cortisone shot. The shots definitely help but can only be given once every 3-4 months and even then is not a great solution….

Inducing Vomiting in Your Dog

Inducing Vomiting in Your Dog

A little over a year ago, I took a pet safety class that actually certified me for two years in basic pet safety. In the class we learned how to muzzle a dog when they were hurt, basic first aid procedures, how to help a choking dog and even dog CPR. However, the most valuable lesson I learned in that class was what is absolutely poisonous to dogs and how to induce them to throw up if they ingest something…

Read a page, turn a page

Read a page, turn a page

I finally picked up a book to read. Actually I picked up my kindle but the act is the same. I use to fly through books. I read all the time. Not as a child., more as an adult. It started when my daughter was small watching the same dumb shows or movies on TV, over and over and over and over again. I’d sit with her and read.  When I took over my last position at my job, I…

Drink yes, drunk NO

Drink yes, drunk NO

Well found another thing that can no longer be on my list of things I can do, get drunk. Since the last time I actually consumed a lot of alcohol, other than wine, was over 2 years ago, I had no idea. I went out for dinner with my friend last night and had a very, very dirty martini, my new drink choice. No big deal if I had one, might not have been an issue if I stopped at…

What I would have done differently with my MS diagnosis

What I would have done differently with my MS diagnosis

Years ago I participated in a multiple sclerosis activity sponsored at the same physical therapy office I go to now. My main physical therapist started the program 17 years back and became the multiple sclerosis therapist of the office. I attended this program he started once and only once. Why? Every person in attendance was in a wheelchair. I was only 2-3 years into my disease and couldn’t face that, wouldn’t face that, so I never went back. Instead I…

A list of some of my favorite binge worthy TV

A list of some of my favorite binge worthy TV

In my four walls of multiple sclerosis, I’m home a lot and I watch a lot of TV. If I read it’s usually self help books but I use to read a lot. I loved serial books which is why I love TV, it’s serial. Forgetting books and reading for now, I wanted to list some of my favorite shows I watched old and new but available on Hulu, Netflixs, Amazon, HBO, SHO, Cinemax etc. these are not in preference…

Body perception and weight

Body perception and weight

In meditation and my prayers I’ve been trying to change the way I see myself, change my body image perception and my ideal goal numbers. I compare myself to everyone and never in a positive way. I am the most critical of myself and I am the most critical of myself in body image and weight.  I always have an answer, excuse a criticism when I look in the mirror, so I basically stopped looking from my neck down. I…

My appreciation of my spiritual journey

My appreciation of my spiritual journey

Chapter I I walk down the street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I fall in. I am lost… I am hopeless. It isn’t my fault. It takes forever to find a way out. Chapter II I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I pretend I don’t see it. I fall in again. I can’t believe I am in this same place. But it isn’t my fault. It still takes a…

Was MS present long before my diagnosis?

Was MS present long before my diagnosis?

I’m pretty sure I had a MS long before I was diagnosed . I had many strange things happen even as a child. When I was in the fifth grade, I got it rash.  The rash was only on my hands and my feet, like gloves and socks. The day my mom took me to the dermatologist, I  threw up in the bathroom. The dermatologist said I was having an allergic reaction to the virus. My body was literally allergic…
