Slow healing!

Monday 6Happy Monday Y’all! I hope you had a nice weekend and I hope your Monday went well!

My plan was to return to work tomorrow, but I am not feeling like it would be a good and healthy choice for me right now. I was on a high amount of steroids for five  very long days, and it has taken a tole on me! I feel like the combination of steroids and a flare up has caused me a lot of stress both mentally, physically and emotionally, so now it is time to take some time to just rest my mind and body. 

I have lived with Multiple Sclerosis for 16 years and I have had a lot of ups and downs. through the years. I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt these past few weeks have felt like an uphill battle with no success. I feel like I am trying to walk a mile in quick sand because my body feels so fatigued. strength 2

I have started watching and practicing meditation. I feel like it may be a good idea for me to get my mind at ease. I am listening to ocean sounds, because I find them to be the most relaxing sounds ever. Now, I am hoping that by meditating daily and just finding a peaceful quite time to just sit and listen to the ocean, I will be able to gain my strength back. I will be spending the rest of this week out of work taking care of my mind and building my strength back. I feel pretty confident that by next Monday, I will be pretty much 100%.

I hope y’all have a great evening! If you have any comments, please do not hesitate to leave them! I do love being able to communicate with all of you. I have been able to take in a lot of advice and hopefully help others in the meantime! 

Love 2

 

Always, Alyssa

  1. Hey warrior. I hate steroids. I hate everything about them…LOL. But it helps with flares, so I guess I can’t complain too much. Meditation is awesome. I downloaded a meditation app called “Calm”. It helps so much. If you have a smart phone or device, I would recommend downloading it. Also, you can find other meditation techniques on YouTube. Keep up the fight MS warrior. We got this!

    • Thank you! I watched some video by Gabby about meditation and it seemed good. But, I am going to download the app you have mentioned. YouTube has everything under the sun it seems. Steroids really are SO horrible but I guess they are helping the flare up. It is just they make me feel terrible all the time. There really is not choice but to continue the fight! Never allowing MS to control is my goal!!! Take care and I look forward to getting to know you!
