Hi guys I know that I have been absent this past week. I am truly sorry and I do apologize. It just seemed like MS took over for a few days and wouldn’t give me my life back.
For those who are struggling with MS or loved ones that have this disease, sometimes it dictates our lives no matter how much we try to control it.
For me I live in Georgia and it’s summer so it is taking its toll. Heat truly affects how you feel. A fellow blogger just wrote a wonderful article on that so I will leave a link here http://wp.me/p8YWkn-Y. But I had an appointment with the doctor and her first words were, please limit your activity outside, stay hydrated and when you feel overheated please cool down as quickly and safely as possible. So I have been trying to heed that advice.
So the one question I get is how has that affected my nail therapy? Honestly I have been painting my nails but my fingers are swollen and as I affectionately call them the “fat little sausages” look funny in pictures. But then I thought about it. This blog is not meant to be just the pretty side of my journey. There are the ugly times so I am warning you that you may see “fat little sausages” because it is what it is.
So MS made me do what? It made me realize that it is a major part of my life so I have to deal with it and not allow it to paralyze me with fear. The past few weeks I have been consumed and tired of Dr. appointments, feeling tired from just breathing or having to force myself to take a shower and then nap following. Planning for my next episode.
I’m not saying that I have this all figured out and that I will definitely not still have days where depression or anxiety or tiredness rule but I will try to not allow those days to become weeks or months or even years. Thanks for your support and patience. These “fat little sausages” are signing off now.
Please let me know how you cope with those bouts of inactivity?
