Winter in the South!

closedHappy Wednesday Y’all! It has actually snowed in the south, which closes everything down! I am definitely not complaining since my office was closed today, but will it close again tomorrow due to the icy roads we will have? I do believe it would be the logical and safe thing to do, I just wonder if they will see things the way I do!

I am not a huge fan of the cold weather as it does cause me so much additional pain, but it was really pretty to wake up to see snow falling! The snow has blanketed the cars and ground which is a beautiful sight, as long as I do not have to go out in it or try driving in snowdayit! I am not saying I can not drive in the snow, but my car does not see things the same way I do. However, I do not believe anyone can drive in the ice, which is what things are going to result in tomorrow!

I do believe we have one good snow fall every year! Considering I did grow up in the north a couple of inches would really not mean too much but it does in the south! The south does not see much snow, so I do not believe we have the necessary equipment to handle much if any!

Yesterday I kept saying we were going to have snow today and I do not think anyone believed me! I even sang my made up snow song in hopes for the snow and it worked! Maybe I need to make up another song for my office to be closed tomorrow, so I do not have to try to drive with icy conditions!

Just to give y’all an update on how I have been feeling physically. I have noticed that I do seen better daysstart feeling much worse as the day progresses. My pain and headache issues will be fine in the morning until about 2:00 in the afternoon, but then everything starts to come back. I will slowly start to get a headache and my back and leg pain will hit me hard. This would be the reason why I am not back to my normal full-time hours at work yet, my body just can not handle it. I really am hoping that someday soon I will be back to as normal as I can be and work a full day. Prior to my most recent flare up I could easily work 8 or more hours a day and be fine, but now after 6 hours I am in bad shape. I have been trying to push myself a little further each week and now I am working 7 hours, which has been working fine. If I am able to come home and rest comfortably my pain will subside some! 

I hope y’all are having a good week so far! Thank you for stopping by today to read my thoughts for this fantastic Wednesday! As always your comments are very much appreciated and I will respond to you as quickly as I can! Remember to always do your best to stay positive because y’all know I believe it make dramatic difference in life! I hope y’all are feeling well today and stay feeling well! Sending much love and comfort to all of you!

KeepItMindful

Hi everybody, this is more of an update really. I wanted to create a community. I want a place for those dealing with difficulties to be able to come to and share and express feelings day to day with the comfort of knowing we will help, we will listen, we will be there. I am dealing with MS and a lot of people with chronic illness showed interest, I want us to have a safe haven and this will be the place for it. We can get to know each other and be there to help people’s down days, problems but also we are all normal people.

Positivity can be motivating!

challenges-make-life-interesting.pngThroughout our lives we are faced with many challenges. At times we may feel defeated by these challenges when in fact they are making us stronger. It is often very difficult to see the bright side of a bad situation because everything seems so dark and hopeless. But I do believe in some way these trials that leave us questioning life are building our strength for the next step in life.

In my opinion it takes a lot more energy to stay negative than it does to be positive. I am also a firm believer that positive thoughts can change our lives for the best! Whatever our struggles are in life we were dealt this hand for a reason. One reason without a doubt is we are strong enough to handle it! Maybe we were meant to help others that might be having a difficult time accepting the same ordeal. We might be offer sound advice or offer a lending handle to someone in need.

Many people each day are being given life altering news that they are trying to learn to cope with. More than likely the news is causing some fear and anxiety in their lives. Most of us have experienced this before and we probably have people in our lives currently dealing with something similar. It is astonishing how much a phone call or doctor’s visit can change your life completely. It is in times of bad news where having a positive attitude can be very beneficial.garden

Life will never change if you spend all of your time focusing on the negative aspects life can have. Negativity can be emotionally and physically draining. Please tell me if you feel different, but I find that when I am down and negative I feel so much worse. I can remember back when my flare up started in October, I was so down about it and felt so cynical about everything I hardly wanted to get off the couch. During my pessimistic time, my condition did not improve at all but persistently got worse causing me so much additional pain. Now that I am thinking with a more optimistic mind, I am starting to feel better each day. I still face a terrible amount of pain daily but it could be much worse than it is now.   

It is so important to always remember the good things in your life. Try taking a few End day positiveminutes everyday to appreciate your life and what you love! Sometimes all it takes is enjoying the simple pleasures our lives offer to bring us happiness!

Thank you for stopping by to read and comment on my thoughts for today! I hope y’all had a great day and are staying warm. Continue holding onto your positive thoughts and fantastic outlooks on life. It really is amazing just how much these happy and positive views can impact your life for the better! Much love y’all!

Hopeful for 2018

Love heartYou might be battling with pain. You might be struggling during difficult times life has thrown your way. You might be dealing with heartaches. You may be enduring life altering changes. You might be trying to figure out where life is taking you. This might be a really tragic time in life and you do not know where to turn to. But, no matter what your struggles are you do have the strength needed to get to a brighter tomorrow. It might be hard to find positivity in life right now but the more you look, you will find something that is positive and that will push away all the negative thoughts. It may not be immediate but one positive memory can brighten your path. It could be that kind hand that reached out to show friendship or love. There is always going to be dark times throughout our lives but we need to focus on what we have found happiness in.

We are so close to the end of a year that may have had traces of struggles for some. Some have been diagnosed with chronic illnesses with no cure. Some have lost or given up a job either due to company cutbacks or downsizing, progression of an illness, family reasons, wanting a change in a career or leaving the work force. You may have had significant losses during 2017 which caused much sadness. Some may have experienced many traumatic events causing depression that is so hard to get past. If you already had a chronic illness you may have encountered a relapse that caused some difficulties. You may have decided to try a new medication with the hopes it would work for your illness, which may not have been the success you had hoped for leaving you back to making quotes-about-life-and-struggle-image-39decisions again.

This past year may have brought on some delightful changes to your life! Maybe you married the person of your dreams! You may have had the exciting opportunity to move to a new city or state to build new memories! Some may have welcomed a child to this world. Maybe you graduated from college and are starting your new career. There are so many glorious events that could have been possible making your year absolutely amazing and unforgettable.

Perhaps during this past year you beat an addiction of some sort. So many people battle addiction to drugs, alcohol and nicotine. It is always common to set a resolution at the beginning of the year to quit whatever you may be addicted to, some succeed but many have minor setbacks. Even if you did have a setback to your goal, never give up on yourself because you do have the strength to win this fight! Whether you did have a never give upslight hindrance in meeting your goal but then successfully won your battle, congratulations to you and be very proud of yourself! Many do have to try again to win the battle and that is okay, just never give up on yourself because you really can do this!

While you look back over 2017, what were the great things that occurred in your life? Did you have numerous misfortunes that required new outlooks on life or forced you to reevaluate your life? Are there any events you wished you could erase? What were the most wonderful things that occurred during the year? Did you have any massive changes during the course of the year that were either encouraging or discouraging? Are there any changes you want to make going into a new year?

Personally, I am looking forward to the New Year! With only 3 days left of 2017, these are my thoughts for the start of ending 2017. The last few months of 2017 have come with a lot of struggles but successes as well. I had a massive flare up that started in October and is gradually healing. I had made the decision to switch my MS medication to Tecfidera after being on Gilenya successfully for 6 years, because I thought the headaches I continued to have were due to the Gilenya. There is no telling if my flare up was due to the change in medicine or due to stress, but through positivity and rest I am on the mends to recovery. Of course I found out that the Tecfidera was not strong enough for my MS and ended up going back to Gilenya, but I am glad for that decision because I would have always wondered if another medication was better for me. I know that the damage my body experienced from the flare up will get better over time and with a lot of patience on my part.Why-Im-Already-Looking-Forward-to-a-Happy-New-Year-1024x512.png

I am hopeful that 2018 holds many positive changes. I am logical enough to realize there will not be some magical cure for all illnesses over night, but there is a chance we are getting just a little closer each day. I hope that the ways of society will start to improve and all that has been lost will be found. Love and respect will be once again practiced.

I started my blog almost 6 months ago and this has truly been one of the best experiences I have had during 2017. I am looking forward to continuing my blog and getting to know more of you! Everyone I have had communications with has been wonderful. It is great getting to know people all over the world and learning about their lives. I appreciate you taking the time to read and comment on my thoughts today. I would love to hear your thoughts on this past year and your hopes for the upcoming year! I hope you had a great day and I hope your evening is relaxing! It might sound like it but this is not my last post of the year! I wish you much love, comfort and peace!

Progress comes with hope!

Happy Tuesday 1Good evening Y’all! I hope you have had a great start to your week! I do not know where time has gone, but 2017 will be coming to an end soon. 2017 has been quite an unforgettable year, some of which we might wish we could forget! There seems to have been a lot of chaos all around the world, but I am hoping that 2018 will bring some change that is for the good of all of us!

Speaking of where did time go, I can not believe it is almost Christmas. I am normally very prepared for the holidays, but this year it kind of crept up on me! I am truly delighted that I will be able to spend time with family and enjoy their company but my goodness I am so not prepared! It will all work out though as the most important thing is we are all still here and healthy enough to make it to both my mother’s house and my in-law’s house!

As y’all already know, I had a terrible flare up from MS starting back in early October. It was a very difficult ride and tried it’s best to defeat my resilience, but I never gave up on myself. I have slowly managed to get back to my normal self. I still suffer from the obvious pain but it is not bringing me to tears anymore. Thankfully, my job has beenmotivational-sayings very understanding with my situation. I have been allowed to adjust my hours and week by week increase those hours. Last week I did struggle to make it through a 5 hour day, but I did it! This week I have been and will continue to work 6 hour days! I think not rushing into a full-time schedule has been very beneficial to my health! If I did rush into my normal work days, it is very likely the stress would have caused the flare up to get worse instead of better.  I truly believe that holding onto a positive mind makes all situations easier to overcome! Anything that could go wrong in life seems to all happen at the same time, but the positive thing about that is once you survive the struggles it is a success!

Life can get so demanding and it gets hard to know what is the best next step. It is important and necessary to evaluate what we are going through and try to make a plan. This is where strategy comes in very helpful. If we are able to break our difficult times into smaller pieces, it makes things much easier and not as overwhelming for us too deal with. It has helped me to just handle smaller issues at a time but still be able to overcome the entire situation!

Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my thoughts for the day! I did not do a post yesterday because I was absolutely exhausted from a long day at work but I will adjust to the early mornings and long days soon! I hope y’all have a nice and relaxing evening! I sincerely hope y’all are feeling well today and holding onto the strength I know you have! Always remember, you are not allow with anything you are dealing with in life, there is always someone out there that understands!! Much love and take care of yourself!

Miss the ole days

rainy dayThere has been a threat of rain today but it has yet to rain! It is horrible when you can feel the rain through the cold air. The rain makes most people feel so fatigued and all you really want to do is sleep. There are times that the cold weather is comforting because you can wear sweaters and boots when you go out in it and come home to a nice warm blanket! But, the cold weather does make me tense up which causes additional pain.

I started thinking today that I really miss days before MS was part of my life. I do realize that MS is not my entire life but it is obviously a big part of it. I still stand by my thoughts of this illness does not control me, it is just a pesky uninvited visitor. Even though I did not ask for this I do try to manage the best way I can. Everyone has days when they want to ask “Why me?” or “What did I do to deserve this?” and I do believe that is normal, good old daysbut sadly those questions will go unanswered. Considering there really are no answers to these questions the only thing we can do is embrace it, stay positive and strong! Even if I could go back in time, there is nothing I could do to change the fact that I have this illness to live with. The energy we have whether it is positive or negative, does impact our lives to great extents. I have made the choice to try to only put out positive energy, it may not take my pain away, but it does give comfort to my mind and soul!

I received a message today from my Specialist that was a little upsetting. It really does not make sense that her message upset me because I did already know that an exacerbation can last weeks or months and I did know there could be residual issues even after I heal. I think the part that was most upsetting was she said that I may never be 100% again. That just made me think that this pain and numbness I deal with is going to just be my life. In all honestly since all of this started I am getting better, I may not be 100% but I may end up getting there! With her saying that I may never get back to 100%, it sparked my determination to win this battle. In my mind I know I will at least my bubbleget back to where I was before this flare up, it may not be perfect but it is my 100%! I do miss the days when I did not have to take any medicine every day and did not have to really worry about anything. Life use to be easy and fun without any troubles! I never thought about politics or had to hear about so much hatred. But now, no matter where you go or who you talk to unpleasant topics always come up. It is almost like my happy peaceful bubble where there was nothing but love and happiness burst. However, even though the bubble is missing, I am still a very happy and positive person! 

Thank you for reading and commenting on my thoughts for the day. I do not think we are facing rain tomorrow but it is going to be cloudy and cold. Even though it has been a slow process, I really am healing. I am planning to continue working 6 hour days because right now it is really all I can handle. On the positive side at least things are improving instead of getting any worse. I hope y’all had a great day and you have a fantastic evening! Take care and continue to be your strong and positive self!

Slow healing

Peaceful SundayEven though our weekend will be coming to an end soon, I hope y’all were able to enjoy the couple of day as much as possible! Monday morning always seems to approach us with super sonic speed that we are never ready for. I do not know about you, but the alarm clock on Monday morning seems to be a little more irritating than the other days of the week!  The best thing to do in preparation of another Monday is spend Sunday relaxing and at peace!

As y’all know I have been trying to get myself back to normal work hours at work, which has been a very SLOW process. Healing from my flare up and then a terrible head cold has been very difficult, but at least I am still trying! One of the most important things in life is to never give up and focus on positive outcomes. It is easy to allow ourselves to get wrapped up with a negative atmosphere, especially when we are suffering with pain or other illness. I honestly find that negativity is suffocating and prevents proper wellness and comfort from life!

Sometimes I wonder if it is even possible to find an escape from the smothering amount of cynicism that has been created. The best way to try to extinguish the negative negative-peoplecomments is to counter them with positivity. It does seem most people find it easier to stay in a pessimistic frame of mind instead of searching for an optimistic outcome! Even when life gets hard for me, I do try my best to stay positive and remember that the end of the gloomy road will brighten again soon!

It really does amaze me how contagious negative attitudes are. I think it is even more contagious than the flu! Finding a remedy for this type of attitude would be able to cure the world and make it an even better place. It really breaks my heart that so many people live with so much hate and hopelessness in their heart and soul. 

change processTomorrow is a new day for me with work and I can only hope that it will be easier. I do not want to set myself up for failure and think it will not come with struggles, but I am going to fight my way through it! I am still finding it hard to sit at a desk all day and to stay completely focused, but I have been dealing with this long enough and it is time for a change! I know change does not happen just by sitting there waiting for it, you have to strive to find it and hold onto it! I do feel like change is something that is desperately needed in my life. I need to get out of my own mind with thinking about the “new” and “active” lesions on both my brain and spine, and start thinking more about those lesions becoming inactive!! I think getting back into my normal and boring daily routine my life will change for the positive. I know the lesions that are causing me troubles will not go away completely but maybe the more I just ignore them by focusing on something else will be helpful! There is a possibility dance in the rainthat the pain in my back and the tingly numbness feeling legs is permanent but I can find the way to get through that! It is all about accepting what is happening and learning how to live with the outcome! I will never have a defeated attitude about anything this illness throws my way!

I hope that y’all had a great weekend and that you are prepared to begin a new and fantastic week! No matter what has happened the past few weeks in your life, the new week will bring wonderful changes and even more life experiences. I am really hopeful and positive that my body will adjust better and I will be able to be my “normal” happy self again! 

Thank you so much for reading and commenting on my post for today! I really do appreciate and value your thoughts and the extraordinary conversations I am able to have with you! As always I will respond to your comments and emails as fast as I can! I hope the rest of your Sunday is wonderful and very relaxing! Continue to stay strong and positive and great things will happen for you!

Strong enough for the struggles!

strong enoughI do believe that all the struggles we go through in life, even though we may not be able to see it at the time, only to make us stronger! We do not get to choose what difficulties we face throughout life, but we can decide how we cope we them. Every battle we tackle can teach us better ways to handle anything else the future holds for us. 

Life is an uphill journey that we are always learning from. An experience you have endured previously can potentially help yourself not struggle as hard if faced with the same situation again or someone else moving forward. We all confront issues in life differently, so what works well for me may not work as well for someone else and visa versa.

Looking back at life I realize that some situations I thought were impossible, were not nearly as bad as I made them out to be. During high stress situations I think we may Beautiful strugglesometimes allow our emotions to have more control than necessary, instead of focusing on logic. Without a doubt I am very guilty of this because I always become very emotional when I am under a great deal of stress and put zero emphasis on being logical. In my sane and clear mind, I do know the only way to make it through difficult times is to look at the issues and find logical ways to fix the problems. For me personally being too emotional causes me to make irrational decisions that in the end never help myself or anyone else that was involved. 

I believe while we are going through difficult times in our lives, we should be able to be open up with our feelings to at least one person! The difficult part might be the person you can always open up to is actually involved with what you are struggling with. Even though it may be hard and you feel like you are suffocating with stress, you still need to find a way to be open about your feelings. Sometimes I will bottle my feelings up which only causes additional stress but I really do not like confrontation! 

I am still dealing with some issues from my exacerbation but I am doing much better. Honestly I can not say what is worse the pain or fatigue I feel everyday! Even though I have had a terrible head cold I have been able to work 5 hours each day this week and next week I will be doing at least 6 hours a day! It has been really hard for me to get back to my normal self, but I am not giving up my fight! 

Thank you for reading and commenting on my short thoughts for today! I will respond to all comments and emails as soon as I am able. I hope y’all have had a good day! Take care and much love to y’all!

First time with Rebif

journey continuesAs promised, I am carrying on with my fun journey of being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Unfortunately, when I was first diagnosed in 2002, there had not been oral medication approved or probably even thought of yet, so I did not have many choices. Like I had said in one my previous posts,  my doctor strongly urged me to try Rebif because he had seen a lot of success with his other patients, so I did give him the benefit of the doubt.

I can remember the first time I gave myself the Rebif shot! It took me forever to get the needle into my skin only because I was so scared of what was going to happen and how it was going to feel. I remember I asking my mother to be at my apartment with me because I never thought I was not going to have the courage to do it by myself, especially the first time and I needed a little support. Shockingly enough I did manage to get the needle in but then had a hard time actually releasing the medicine because it was already burning like fire. All in all I think my first injection took me about 20 minutes to complete, but I was proud of myself when it was over because I actually did it myself! I can still remember how much the medicine burned as it was released from the syringe and told my mother I would never do it again because I hated every moment of it. ThatRef evening I woke up several times feeling like I had the flu because I was cold but sweating and my body ached all over. Even the next morning I felt like I was still sick so I called the doctor worried. My doctor told me it was very common to have flu-like symptoms with Rebif and before my next dose I should premedicate with Advil or Tylenol,  as they would combat those negative side effects. Of course me being the patient I think every doctor dreads having had a lot of questions! I could not understand why a medicine that was supposed to be helping me would cause me to be even sicker and require more medicine. My goal was to take as little medicine as possible and they were only increasing what I had to take.

The next time I had to do the Rebif, I asked my mother to come over to my apartment and do the injection for me. I just could not handle  pushing a needle into my skin knowing  exactly how bad the medicine would burn and how I would feel the following day. Thankfully my mother was able to help me and do the injection for me. Afterwards, I did manage to do the injections myself for the most part. My husband knew what days I was supposed to do the injections and would remind me and encourage me to do what was needed. 

Technically, I was prescribed Rebif for about two years but slowly stopped doing the injections on the days I was supposed to because I had too many bruises and ran out of injection sites that were the easiest for me to do. My doctor figured out that the medication was not working because I was having more issues arise but he did not know the real reason it was not working, so I finally told my doctor that I was not taking the medicine any longer and told him why. I explained to him that I was not good at doing an injection every other day, so he and I discussed different options. Unfortunately my options were limited to other injection based medications or IV medications and I was not comfortable with any of my options and needed time to think about what I would do next. 

From my own personal experiences I know just how important it is to find the right disease modifying medication that works best for you. Back then, the diagnosis was still new to me and I was still being stubborn not wanting to face the facts that I needed to do something to slow the progression of the disease. I made bad decisions solely based on not wanting the illness to have any effects on my daily life and not wanting to  admit that this illness was not going anywhere. It was a childlike mind thinking if I did not Unknownacknowledge it, there would not be any consequences. I went as far to tell my doctor he was wrong and I did not have MS and I was getting a second opinion. I did exactly what I said and got a second opinion from another specialist. Those were two bad decisions all in a matter of a few months. I stopped taking anything for the MS and went to another doctor that did not seem to have as much knowledge. I ended up having my first bad exacerbation which caused me a lot of weakness and dizziness and I ended up back with my first doctor. As terrified as I was about going back to the doctor I told was wrong, he was very understanding about my feelings. This was also the first time the exacerbation was bad enough to require IV steroids. There were a few other medications I tried before finding the one that was best for me, which I will get to in my next post. These posts are taking a little longer because they are all emotionally draining for me.

I do completely understand how hard it is when finding the right medication for MS, but it is really important to do your own research and give things a try with an open mind. I have tried a number of medications so please do not hesitate to reach out to me if there are any questions I can answer for you. Please keep in mind all my answers are only based on my own experiences as I do not have a medical degree. Considering I have gone without taking anything I do know it is not the best idea and I only want to help!

Thank you for visiting today and sharing any comments you may have. I will respond to all comments and emails as soon as I can! I hope y’all had a good Monday and I hope you are having a great evening! Much love and take care!!

So Much To Be Thankful For!

Reason_To_Be_ThankfulI have always found it a little strange that we need a day that is titled “Thanksgiving” in order to think about what we are truly thankful for in life. No matter what kinds of struggles we may deal with in our lives, there is always something that we should be able to think of that we are thankful for! I do not need a “special” day to appreciate and acknowledge the great parts of my life. I feel blessed to have family that loves me unconditionally and offers me emotional support when I need it! 

Everyone at work today was talking about their plans were for Thanksgiving. Most people complain about either making a huge meal or having to drive long distances, when it is really all about spending time with loved ones. For Thanksgiving my husband and I are planning to have a quiet day at home together with our cats! I did talk about making us the traditional Thanksgiving meal but I decided to make what I am best at, lasagna! I feel like it has been a little while, but we are planning to visit with my in-laws on Friday. With my mother being a nurse, she has to work tomorrow but I hope for her sake it will not be a busy day!

In a very crazy way, I am even thankful for MS. As difficult as it can make my life, it Thankfulreally has made me a stronger person. Plus, I do know that as much pain as I have been experiencing, it could be so much worse than it is. I am so grateful that I still have full function of all my body parts, even if they hurt like hell! I remember when I was first heard I had MS, I was terrified that I was going to be in a wheelchair. Even if someday I do have to use a wheelchair, I am old enough now to know my life will still carry on, I will still be able to do most things I do now but back then I thought it would be absolutely horrible. 

Even though it has taken me a while, I have been able to slowly build my strength up which is enabling to work more hours daily. Shockingly enough I had a fairly good 5 hours at work today and I was able to control my stress and pain slightly better. Next week, hopefully things will continue to improve and I will get closer to my normal work schedule of 40+ hours. I know my plans of working so many hours does not seem very exciting but the paycheck is always nice to see! I guess it is true, you have to work hard in order to play and do what you want to do in life.

friendship_and_butterflies_note_card_set_of_eight_681d5cb5Another thing I am very thankful for is my blog and the amazing friends I have made through this. I have had the opportunity to communicate with people all over the world and learn not only about their experiences but also their country. Being able to learn so much about other countries I feel like I have almost traveled the world! 

I have learned that not all countries celebrate Thanksgiving, but I hope that whatever y’all do tomorrow and the rest of the week is filled with happiness and comfort. I am so excited that I have the next four days off of work to rest up more so that I can feel close to 100% better for next week. I also really want go this weekend to Crisis Ministry so I can give my donations for those that are in need of warm clothes. The temperatures have been steadily dropping, so I know there are people out there that will benefit from some warm sweaters and jeans! 

As always thank for you for taking the time to read and comment on my thoughts for the day, I will respond to all comments as quickly as I can! I hope y’all had a great day and I hope your evening goes very well! Take care and much love to all of you!!
