Happy Saturday Y’all! I do not know about you, but I am loving the weather right now! Temperatures for the foreseeable days are in the 60’s and 70’s, except for tomorrow when it is going to be in the low 50’s. I am so glad we do not have to deal with insanely hot temperatures until next year!
Y’all know I have been dealing with a lot of leg spasticity and increased back lately. This morning I woke up at 7 am with an intense amount of pain. I have done everything the NP told me to do yesterday with no relief yet. I am sure that if I continue doing what she said and have patience, things will get better. Right now it is really hard to get comfortable, because I hurt all over. The only thing that gives me any relief at all is my fantastic heating pad. It is amazing because most doctors say that heat makes MS worse, but a heating pad or a hot shower, helps me so much!
Thankfully, I do not have anything that I have to do today. My husband and I are going to relax at home today and watch a movie tonight. Not only am I suffering with a lot of pain, but my husband has been battling a terrible migraine and neck pain for days now. We understand each other so much when it comes to pain, which is good so we are not pushing the other to do anything. We are both very supportive of each other and have compassion for what we are going through. It has been a hell of a few weeks for both of us. I am very hopeful that things will get better though, for both of us. Positive thinking will normally lead to positive results! I guess smiling through the hard times is better than crying through them.
I did start a new book yesterday called, The De-Stress Effect: Rebalance Your Body’s System for Vibrant Health and Happiness by Charlotte Watts. I am hoping this book will help me figure out ways to not stress about everything and learn to handle things better. Getting all worked up and stressed has never made any situation any better, in fact it has only made everything worse. I will keep y’all informed about how this book helps and also share any information that I find helpful.
I hope you have a fantastic Saturday! It still amazes me how much I have gotten to know so many of you. I have really enjoyed our conversations so much. Of course, feel free to leave a comment which I will respond to as quickly as I can, but also do not hesitate to email me if you want to chat or vent.
