Never Giving Up!

When Life Gets BusyTo simply say that my life has been busy lately and it has very hard to make the necessary time to do what I enjoy is a poor excuse and a HUGE  understatement! Moving to a new city and starting a new job has been exciting, but also VERY overwhelming. I honestly haven’t worked a full-time job in a while because of the constant pain and other issues I struggle with daily, but I have been doing just that for one month now! Yes, the pain has been difficult to deal with, but at the same time I am actually enjoying the job so I just accept the pain for what it is and I don’t dwell over it. I feel that my job helps those that are struggle with making ends means, but they want to improve their lives. In my personal opinion, people who struggle with life but do what is necessary to provide for themselves and their families are pretty amazing and admirable. There are so many that just give up because they feel helpless and feel as there isn’t anything they can do to improve their lives, which this just isn’t true! It may not dc-may18-600seem like it, but I do believe that we can all accomplish ANYTHING we set our minds to!

Like I have said already, I am pushing myself to work a full-time job and lately with the weather change hasn’t been easy at all! Even though my body is on overdrive and going a little haywire, I know things will improve in time it just takes patients, which I tend to lack. It doesn’t matter if the temperature changes from hot to cold or cold to hot, I still react the same way, NOT WELL! It still seems a little crazy to me that I feel horrible when anything goes on with the weather, even just rain. For the first few weeks of every season, I just feel like I was hit by a truck and the mean driver backed over me just for some added fun! You would think that after living with Multiple Sclerosis for almost 19 years I would be immune to these issues or at least be able to tolerate them better, but honestly it is always produces the same troubles!

878da42dde1a95a17c88e6759c5fbcf1I hate that I have been a little MIA for weeks now, but the life changes has been a struggle for me. I still need to find a MS Specialist near me, so when I do have issues, which hopefully I won’t, I will have a doctor to contact. It would be terrible to drive 2 hours back to the doctor I couldn’t care less for, but that might be my only choice for short-term, we will see. We did find a vet for our cats to go to that is really close to our house. Only one of our cats really needs a vet due to his asthma. A lady I work with said she has a great dentist, so I might need to check them out. It isn’t any fun starting all over again with doctors, but maybe it is actually a good thing and I will find better doctors that I mesh well with. I don’t think I am a difficult patient, but I need to feel like the doctor I see, no matter what type they are have required knowledge and the MS Specialist needs to be compassionate. Do you think I am asking too much and I am a little difficult? Of course I want the MS doctor to be honest, but not too harsh like my current one. All doctors should have good side manner, which seems to be hard to find!

It is really shocking how difficult it is to work full-time. It seems like there are too many hours away from home relaxing and enjoying life by working, but I guess we all make sacrifices and at least I like what I am doing! I am still continuing to learn and have more responsibilities, which I ❤ LOVE! If I am forced to work, I much prefer to stay busy and be challenged!

I hope y’all are having a great weekend! It is sunny, windy and a little chilly where I am, but it isn’t as bad as yesterday. It really seems that the seasons changed over night. We went from the high 80’s to low 50’s in just a few hours, that might be exaggerating a little, but that is how it seemed! I hope y’all are able to do anything and everything that brings you joy this weekend! Thank you so much for visiting my site today. I will respond to any comments as quickly as I can!! I promise I am working on getting back into blogging again, it is just taking longer than I would have expected. Please remember that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤ and comfort!

My signature heart

❤Always, Alyssa❤

    • Thank you so much Meg! I do think finding good doctors is like finding a needle in a hay stack, but I am hopeful it will happen. I am glad you have a good psych doctor and dentist. The new job is great and I never dread going to work. It has been difficult writing and working full-time, but I have to figure it out. I think writing helps my stress levels!

  3. So glad to hear you’re getting adjusted, it will take more time. Find new doctors has been my mission for the past year and I’m still short a Dentist and Chiropractor. All in time. Thrilled to hear your job is fulfilling. How is the job search going for your husband, the timing is great since unemployment is so low. Wages get higher! Hugs

  4. I just read this post as I’ve been feeling very weak lately. When I saw the ‘Never give Up’ heading though it intrigued me and drew me in to read it as I need a bit of motivation. I am glad you like your new job, you are so lucky that you like it enough to want to be there full time. I don’t know what you mean though by this is the first post since you moved where you were actually able to blog from your heart because I have found your last 4 posts to be back to normal again like what they were before you moved. Only the first two or three when you were in the moving process didn’t seem like you.
    Take care and please don’t push yourself too hard. All the best with finding new specialists.

  5. I’m sorry you have such responses to changes in the weather, but it’s not odd, that can and obviously does happen, just to differing degrees when you have chronic illness. And then you add on exhaustion and stress and not having enough hours in the day… And yet here you are, still posting, still giving other inspiration and encouragement, and still picking yourself up to push forward. You rock! And you can totally do this, bit by bit. Starting over with finding new services, like vets (glad you found one close to home though, that’s good to have that ticked off the list) and dentists is frustrating, but finding doctors and specialists are the worst. It’s ridiculous how hard it can be sometimes just to find someone that’s got an open mind, who actually listens, who’s efficient and compassionate. They should be all of these things, so you’re certainly not being difficult or asking to much. I hope you can find some time get back to the things you want to do, as well as those you need to, over the next week in between work. Sending hugs xxxx

    • Thank you so much!!!! Weather changes and exhaustion is no fun but things always improve. My weekend was full of not much at all, which was great!!!!
      I really enjoy being able to write and have what I share help someone else. It is trial and error getting back to where I want to be with writing, but it will happen!
      Finding specialists is horrible!! Even once you find a few, it is almost impossible to find one that has any kind of compassion.
      I hope you have a great day and your week is wonderful as well!! Lots of hugs!xxx

  6. You are not being difficult in any way. It’s very important to have faith and trust your doctor’s. In turn they need to be caring and compassionate and yes, have a good bedside manner. Also they need to take the time needed to answer all your questions without making you feel rushed. You by far are right on target. Don’t stress, you’ll get back on track with your blog once your life calms down. I look forward to reading your blogs. They are so encouaging and uplifting. Thank you for all you do. All my Love & Support, Mom💜💜

    • Thank you, I definitely do not think I am being unreasonable or difficult wanting a specialist to be knowledgeable and compassionate. I always feel rushed by doctors, which is why I go into ALL appointments now with note. I refuse to leave until ALL my concerns are met and questions answered. I think in the world today, doctors can more about money than patients. I hope all my future posts will continue to be enjoyable, encouraging and uplifting!!
