Let It Go Friday

~We Finally Made It, Happy Friday ~

I am so glad that we finally made it through this week! I do not know about you, but I think this has been a painfully LONG week! Of course, work has been busy, which I like, but I can use a break from the insanity! I am not sure if it is stress-related or the colder weather, but my pain levels have increased drastically. Yes, I am going to be getting the first COVID vaccine tomorrow morning and if I am being completely honest, I am nervous about it. I am not nervous about getting a shot, however, I am nervous if this vaccine will have a negative interaction with the medication I take for the MS. At least I do not work the weekend and my husband will be sure nothing bad happens to me, and if all else fails the hospital is close to where I am going for the vaccine.

Our work week tends to be stressful and even cause some negative emotions to bubble up. Now that the weekend is so close, it is time to let go of all bad energy and feelings and just enjoy the short weekend. As I get older, I am understanding more and more, we have to do what brings us joy and care much less about what others think of us. As long as we are continuing to be kind, caring, understanding, and fair to others we are doing everything right. I am hoping the quote I am sharing with y’all will help remind you to live your life doing what you love and not trying to impress anyone else!

What do y’all have planned for your weekend? Y’all know I never do anything over the weekend, but you also know I am leaving the house tomorrow! Is it crazy that I am excited to leave the house but nervous about why I am leaving the house? Does anyone reading this post have Multiple Sclerosis, take Gilenya, and have received the COVID vaccine? I know that everyone experiences medication and side effects differently, but it might help relieve my anxiety to hear from someone that can give me a little information about the vaccine.

Thank you for visiting my site today! I really appreciate you continuing to visit and love reading your comments. It might sound silly to some, but I consider all my fellow bloggers friends. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

  1. Sorry to hear that you have been in so much pain. It hasn’t been the greatest weather up here in northern Michigan but the fireplace is getting a workout for sure.
    I have been fairly quiet these last few weeks as I wanted to steer clear of all the election hype and the lack of self control that has been witnessed in both parties. I sometimes wish we could issue a do over for all of Congress and politicians in general and somehow find leaders who are not interested in the “perks” and more interested in actual leadership. After nearly 28 years in leadership roles, the last thing I would do is to publicly humiliate anyone as I would get fired in the space of an egg timer with zero questions asked. I am not sure where this country is really heading but I do so want to have decent leaders that can get us there.
    I truly pray that your vaccine experience will be a beneficial one. It is a hard decision to know what to do about this vaccine when the question of a compromised immune system is in play. I understand your thoughts based on the posts you have given. These are certainly challenging times. I wouldn’t know what I would do if not for my wife walking through this mess at my side. I’m glad that you have a good support person to help you navigate this.
    All I can say in closing is that this event has focused my attention toward One who knows my name and NEVER will let me feel alone. I hope you have the same experience in your life. Good luck tomorrow!!
