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…

U2 Every Breaking Wave-Acoustic

U2 Every Breaking Wave-Acoustic

Today my arm was hurting so much I couldn’t work out. Couldn’t even do Zumba in a chair because my arm couldn’t do the moves. I am extremely frustrated and just deflated. 8 years I’ve woke up and workout. I’m now on 4 days I haven’t with Sunday being my normal day off. Doesn’t even make a difference. My MS was still awful without working out anyway. My arm, this stupid tendonitis or tendinitis (not sure on spelling) affects everything. I can’t…

Rocking Motherhood in 10 different ways despite MS

Rocking Motherhood in 10 different ways despite MS

I follow all the blogs I come across with people that have a MS. I like to see how they deal with it what’s going on with them, what medicine they take, etc. I like to read how they deal with the obstacles of having MS and balancing life. One of my personal favorites is Jen from http://Www.trippingthroughtreacle.wordpress.com. Jen’s blog is uplifting and inspiring despite her illness.  Jen has had MS for over 20 years. For me especially at 19 years…

Jamie raw and uncut the sequel

It’s still me. Hope everyone is having a beautiful day. I must say the first  day of my intention to lose weight had a caramel popcorn hiccup but we got through it, or finished that bag, but moving on. I got food shopping done so I’m ready to cook which you must do if you’re vegan. I stated to the universe my intention and now I ask the universe to have my back, guiding me to my goal. I said…

I have issues

I have issues

My daughter stepped on the scale and was 5-6 pounds lighter. My daughter, who is normal and not obsessed with the scale as her mom, doesn’t weigh herself often. She has no reason to, she’s very thin, looks wonderful in everything, she’s 17. Her mother, on the other hand, has finally learned to limit herself to once a week. However when her daughter weight was so low, I needed to check the scale myself. It was the same as four days…

Am I depressed?

Am I depressed?

I have to be honest, I’ve been asked this more than once by family members, doctors and friends. For probably 15  of the 19 years I have MS, I was on Prozac.  I think in my 20s I was miserable for many reasons, especially when I got my diagnosis. However, the main reason for Prozac was because Betaseron, my MS therapy drug, had the side effect of depression.  It’s like you take a drug, but then you need something to…

It’s just the worst thing that could happen t me. It’s this…
