I am sure y’all could hear the sarcasm in my title. I woke up this morning to it being chilly and rainy, but the it did clear up throughout the day. Unfortunately, my pain stayed consistent. Even my right shoulder through my fingertips started hurting again, which is aggravating when you have to type all day at work. Considering I was in a lot of pain and went to work anyways, I spent a lot of the day quiet! This was in effort to not offend anyone. When you are in a lot of pain and people want to say the most ignorant things to you, it can feel like your head is about ready to burst! Plus, it was a pretty busy day so that only made me feel a little on the stressed side. But, I made it through my 8 1/2 hour-long day at work and was able to come home, to get all nice and comfy! I am pretty sure I get my sarcastic personality from my Grandfather, he was the master of it!
So on a more positive thought, today was the fourth day of my new medicine. Truth is, that is the only positive. I know it is going to take about three weeks for the stomach uneasiness and itchiness to stop, but my goodness I wish it would end sooner. Oh, and I forgot to mention hot flashes. I go from being freezing cold to burning up hot! But at least I am staying with it, and not letting a few side effects make me want to stop it all together. I know the issues will stop and this medicine will slow the progression of the disease, so that is enough for me to stay on it and deal with whatever I need to. The strength we have inside of us is amazing! I want to be able to control the MS, as I do want to delay any possible progression for as long as I possibly can. I am very independent, so I want to be able to take care of myself and my family. Of course the family I try to take care of is, my husband and two cats, but still I want to be able to do as much as I can for them.
Another positive thing about today is, it is my mother’s birthday! I know she probably couldn’t care less about another birthday, but it should still be a special day! Also, the rest of the week is supposed to be sunny, so I don’t have to deal with rain! Maybe the weather trying to maintain will make my pain lesson. See, I can be optimistic and not so sarcastic! I look forward a time where I can get through an entire day with no pain, or at least pain that is more manageable. I have to believe that this day will come to be more than just an “I hope” but a reality, I just don’t know when that will be.
I want to share with you that I have received several comments that I have been an inspiration for them with how positive I have been, even while dealing with a lot of pain. That means so much to me, as it is one of my goals from doing my posts everyday. I really want to be able to help those suffering with chronic illness and or pain. I want to be able to give them a reason to believe there is a way through all this madness. I gain a lot of courage through y’all, and want to be able to give that back to others. It is so important to be able to build a connection with others that really understand what you are going through, and be able to give you a reason to believe, there is a light somewhere in the tunnel of darkness.
Thank y’all again for continuing to read my posts and make comments. I truly love all the connections I have made with so many of you. This blog has made me see, that there are so many incredible people out there, and I appreciate all of you! Each one of you has made a positive impact on my life, that I will forever be thankful for. I hope y’all have a great Wednesday! Continue maintaining your strength and courage, it makes a big difference. Look at me, I started off this post being a little on the negative side and by the end of my post, I am back to be my same optimistic self! Pop question, what do you think my favorite color is?
