Time change confusion!

Fall backI hope y’all had a great weekend! I remembered to change our clocks last night before we went to bed, but for some reason this morning I was so confused as to what time it was. No clue by, but I was trying to set it back again. 

This is by far my favorite time of year. I know it gets dark earlier, but this  of year it is not too hot and not too cold, it is just right! Summers in the south are way too hot! I mean you step out side and you can not breath. Winters can be cold in the south, but they are very tolerable. Even though winters are not extremely cold, I do still enjoy the Autumn crispness and beautiful colors as the leaves fall. There is a calmness, when you look outside and see all the leaves changing colors! 

Today, there has been a darkness outside and definitely a little chill in the air. The crazy thing is, the weather will go from being cloudy and in the upper 60’s today, to rainy in the 70’s tomorrow and then mid-week drop again to the upper 60’s. The fluctuation of the temperatures does not allow our bodies to adjust to the changes, which typically causes me a lot more pain issues. 

As y’all know, I have been out of work for about one month now, battling my most recent 6601871244d8d3798da7c92b540e2044--dont-give-up-quotes-dont-give-upexacerbation. It has not been an easy month, but I am doing my best. I have tried this several times before, but I am trying again to go back to work tomorrow. I will be working  shorter days Monday-Wednesday, and then re-evaluating how I am feeling to determine my hours for the rest of the week. I am taking things slow, so that I do not slide backwards in my healing process. I am hoping taking things at a snail pace will be easier! Even though things did not work out for me before when I tried going back, I did not give up and I am trying again!

I am of course tired of living in pain, but I am learning  to try to almost ignore it. Ignoring the pain is not always easy , but I am just trying to focus my mind on other things. Honestly, some days my pain is so high that I am not able to focus on anything at all! It is almost like looking at a blank page when I try to read my book. I am trying to learn to take things on slowly , even reading in very small amounts, negativejust so I can make it through least a chapter.  I am really hopeful that I will do well back at work tomorrow and hopefully not have an increased amount of pain!

I truly hope y’all enjoyed your weekend and you are ready for the new week to start! I think it is important to start a new week with positive thoughts and not hold onto anything that may be negative from the previous weeks! When you go into a new week with a positive mind-set, it will only be able to bring happiness to your life!  We do all go through possibly long periods of time when we feel like nothing is going to change, but if you want there to be change in your life, you have to do something to make it happen. Unfortunately, things do not change if we just sit by waiting on the changes with all talk and no action.

As always please leave a comment and I will respond as quickly as I can! I have had the opportunity to get to know so many amazing people during my 4 months of doing this blog. I really look forward to getting to know many more people and hopefully what I write in my blog will help, inspire and encourage others when they are going through hard times.  Y’all take care and remember that you are not alone with what you are dealing with in life. There is always someone who does understand!

Love 2

 

Always, Alyssa

About Positively Alyssa

I was diagnosed 16 years ago, when I was only 19 years old, with Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis. I had gone to my eye doctor because I had lost vision in my left eye. Prior to my appointment, I had prepared myself to have the doctor confirm that I would be blind in my left eye and that was all. Never in a million years did I expect to hear the doctor tell me that after consulting with his colleagues, that I need to go for an MRI that day because they were thinking that with my symptoms that I had MS. Just a couple hours later I went to get the life altering MRI. I remember that phone call like it was yesterday. My eye doctor called me from his home at 9:30 at night to confirm what they suspected, I in fact had MS. He immediately referred me to a specialist he knew and I was able to get in to see him that same week. Luckily, after a round of steroids, my vision came back in my eye just leaving me with leg pain that would continue to be part of my life. Through the years I have tried numerous different medications that are meant to slow the progression of the disease down. I was never good at the injections and it wasn't because of the needle, it was because the medication burned like fire going in. Still after all these years I still go through my battles of denial, anger, frustration and sadness. However, I have always said that I would NEVER allow MS to control my life but I would control the disease. For the most part, I have been pretty successful with that. I mean we all have our bad days but it doesn't make the situation any better. With this blog I am hoping that with my experiences, endless amounts of research and a powerful fight i me that I can not only help others going through this but that I can learn from others as well. Living with the ups and downs of MS can be challenging but the power of the mind can beat anything that is thrown our way!
