MS Awareness Month day 30

The month is winding down and as we all know it’s been a crazy one. With Covid-19 floating around we all have to be a little extra careful thanks to our wonderful autoimmune disorder. Especially those of you on a DMD, please take extra precautions. My heart, hope, and love is with you all!

And with everything going on, I think we need a little humor from time to time.

Have courage and be kind.

MS Awareness Month day 25 & 26

Oh my gosh I can’t believe I forgot about yesterday, Day 25. I will kill two birds with one stone. You know what, I kind of hate that sentence. I know I know it’s just an analogy but why would anyone wanna kill two birds with one stone. I know it’s just a saying but that’s how my mind works sometimes. 😂

^^^ yep this right here. The struggle is real. 😜

Have courage and be kind. 🖤

Straightening my crown yet again…

So we’re going to try getting me up in my shower chair. I figure since Independence Blue Cross isn’t going to help me in any way, I’m going to have to do it my damn self. Since the husband has to stay at home right now, I guess it’s the best time to start trying. I won’t lie, I am really scared because I know it’s gonna hurt like a motherfucker. So I’m going to “medicate” 🌿and try to psych myself up for this. It just really sucks that I have to psych myself up to take a shower. I know that some of you reading this completely understand, and I’m so sorry.

I hope that all the movement I’ve been doing on my own will help. I just have to remind myself not to get discouraged if it doesn’t work today. If I keep trying maybe at some point it will work. The worst part about that comment is I’ve been trying on my own for quite some time now and it hasn’t worked. But, maybe, one of these times it will. Oh my gosh I am really nervous about this.

Also, real quick, thank you to all that have stuck by me and supported me even when I go a little mad. 😉 Seriously, thank you 🙏🏻🖤

Have courage and be kind.

MS Awareness Month Day 5

I was dx’ed by a PA by my walk… the ‘drunk walk’. Years of searching and no MD could figure me out. He simply asked me to walk about 10 feet. Then he ordered an MRI. And finally I found my diagnosis. 🖤

Walking got very hard very quickly. It feels like your legs become tree trunks. And then of course if you are lucky enough to get drop foot, well you know how fun that is. #MSAwareness #MarchIsMSAwarenessMonth

Have courage and be kind!
