Stress-Free Birthday!

stressfree birthdayGood morning Y’all! I hope you are having a good morning! As y’all know, today is my birthday! Boy am I starting to get old! You also may know, that I have had a stressful and painful few months. Yesterday, I had a very upsetting and stressful day, which only added to my pain issues. Today, I want to just relax and have absolutely NO stress in my life! All I really want is, one day with no complaints and or stress! I think this will actually help me get to feeling better.Β 

As most of you already know, I have been having these horrible flare up like symptoms for a few months now. I Birthdayhave had a ridiculous amount of pain, that just will not quit. This weekend was supposed to be wonderful, with today being my birthday and tomorrow being my anniversary. It seems like my MS did not get that message and acted up anyway! But, even with the pain I am having, I am going to try to enjoy today and tomorrow with my husband and cats! Hopefully later today, my husband and I will go out to lunch at my all time favorite restaurant! Later tonight, we will rent a movie and relax at home with each other and of course our sweet cats! I am not sure what movie will rent, but hopefully it will be a good one!

I have only been up for a few hours and my pain is unfortunately still pretty damn bad! I do not understand why is will not leave me alone for a few day. I am going to be getting the MRI next weekend and I have rested for several days now, what more can I do? It is so frustrating when nothing seems to relieve the pain, at all! Normally, laying down helps the pain, but lately that has not even helped. I just really need a break from pain, even if it will let up for a few hoursbirthday breakΒ would be wonderful! But I guess maybe that is asking too much! I have learned over the past 16 years, you can not reason with an illness. The MS is going to do what it wants, when it wants to, with no thoughts of what I need! But, I will get through this at some point!

I hope that y’all have a great day today and are able to do something that you find enjoyable! It looks like it is a beautiful day where I live, so I hope it where you are as 6601871244d8d3798da7c92b540e2044--dont-give-up-quotes-dont-give-upwell! We all should be able to enjoy this short life we have to the fullest! Even though I am in a lot of pain, I am very determined to have a good weekend! I am not and never have been one that will surrender to anything, even to the pain and Multiple Sclerosis. I can not allow these things to control my life, at all! Thank you for all your continued support and reading my posts daily! I love all the comments I get from so many of you! Again, have a great day and stay positive and strong! Take care!!!

Love 2


Always, Alyssa

  2. Hi Alyssa, Happy Birthday! I’m curious as to where you experience pain the most? Mine is usually in my lower back and nerves in my upper legs. I was diagnosed 18 years ago and the pain has, fortunately, decreased over time, perhaps yours will as well. But first, have a great day and put the MS behind you for a few hours. Love always to my fellow MS’ers!
