I hope your weekend is starting off well! It is a beautiful Saturday, so I hope y’all are able to enjoy the day! Personally, I am just enjoying the fact that I can rest and not worry about doing anything. I am working on getting myself healthy and pain-free. We will see how it goes by resting this weekend. Of course as y’all know I stayed home from work yesterday, so that gives me three days to recuperate from this pain. Hopefully by Monday it will be a lot more tolerable.
Today, I started the full dose of Tecfidera! Things are going well so far. Although, as I said yesterday that I thought I might have some kind of flu, well I do think I have some kind of viral thing. I woke up this morning and even before I took the Tecfidera was sick as a dog. I have felt weak of course from being ill this morning, but on the bright side I am starting to feel better and was able to keep crackers down. My sweet cats have not left my side for two days, I think they are trying to make me feel better. The love of animals can not really be described. But what I can say is, you can really see the love in their expressions. I am truly honored to have the love of my two amazing cats and my loving husband! The three of them give me so much strength to carry on with all the pain I am going through!
I was out of work yesterday and it was the moving day of our desk, so of course I wasn’t able to move my things. I did feel bad that I wasn’t there to move all my things, but thanks to my husband and kind friend, all my things were moved and set up for me, so I do not have to worry about anything when I return to work on Monday morning. I am so thankful for the good and loving people I have in my life. With all the hate there is in this world, it is refreshing to know that there are still some good people out there. I have never understood hate and discriminating against another person. When I talk to people, the only thing I see is another human being. All people have good qualities and bad ones, you just need to be able to know the difference. Hold onto the good ones that bring positive to your life, and let the bad ones that only bring negativity to your life go.
Living with a chronic illness that brings pain is not an easy thing to do, as y’all are aware of. It is hard to be positive when you are hurting. But I believe strongly that we all have the power to win our battles. There may not be cures for illnesses like Multiple Sclerosis, but we find ways to make it! No matter what we are battling, we all have the strength to fight and continue fighting. Maybe someday there will be cures for all of our suffering, but until that day comes, we stay strong and wait patiently. We lean on others when we need to and we help others when we can. Everyone that participates in this blog has struggles they are going through, and everyone has powers to offer guidance and encouragement. It is unbelievable how many people have reached out to me with words of wisdom and needing help. I really want to offer strength and courage to others.
As always, thank you for reading my posts and making amazing comments. I have really enjoyed connecting with everyone all around the world. Everyone has something to offer with the healing process. I hope the rest of your Saturday is wonderful!
