Good evening y’all! I hope your weekend has been well spent and you enjoyed every moment of it! Sadly, today is my last day of freedom before returning to the working world. Of course I have my reservations about this, but I am also a little excited about my new journey. I did feel rather lost not having a job and that is because I have honestly worked since I was 15 years old, plus living with a chronic illness that acts up randomly without insurance has been insanely stressful! I think the fear about insurance has been weighing on my mind and probably the reason I have had terrible stomach issues for over about one month!
The only bad thing I know so far about my new job is, I will still not have insurance for 90 days. Seriously, in a matter of 3 months a lot can happen that insurance would probably be very helpful. Logically, I know thinking about this and allowing for it to cause me stress isn’t going to help matters at all and will more than likely cause me many unwanted issues. Unfortunately, I am not sure how to let these feelings go and just stay calm when MS has a mind of its own and acts a little crazy sometimes.
One really awful thing about not having insurance at the moment is, I am afraid I will run out of my Gilenya before I have insurance again. I do plan on calling the Gilenya Go Program at some point on Monday and just pray they will have an option for me because I can’t just stop this medication. As much as I have fought medications over the years, Gilenya has helped keep my Multiple Sclerosis under control to a point. Currently I do have enough of this medicine to get me through a month and a half. Please wish me luck that I can figure something out with the Gilenya!!
Y’all already know and have sent me many encouraging and supportive words for this new job. I do not have a clue how difficult this job is going to be or if it is going to be stressful, but I am going to still blog when I am able. Please forgive me if it takes me a little longer to respond and or read your amazing posts. Working full-time again is going to take me some time to adjust and figure things out, but I know I can do it! There is a chance I could read posts on a lunch break, but I think I am only going to get 30 minutes, so I am not sure how that would work.
I hope you have a lovely evening and you are feeling well. I always appreciate you visiting my site and love the comments you share! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time not only to stop by, but also for how much you have all given me so much hope in humanity and in myself as well! Please know I am always sending y’all LOTS of love , comfort and many positive vibes!
Always , Alyssa
Good evening my lovely friends! I wanted to wish y’all a very Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you were able to enjoy time with family and be able to give thanks to all those that you hold dear to you!!!
I meant to do a post each day this week with all I was thankful for, but with all the fatigue from work I wasn’t able to. I do plan to share my list with y’all in another post though! Not only do I hope you enjoyed your day, but I hope you are feeling the best you can! Please remember that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love , comfort and sending you many positive vibes!
Happy Sunday y’all! I hope you are having a wonderful and peaceful weekend! I think it is possible that today is my first day in the house that I am not busy or battling with a nasty migraine. We have been living in our new/old house for one month now, but our first two weekends were spent driving 2 hours back to our old home to finish up some loose ends. Let me just say that after working the typical five-day/40 hour work week and having to basically work a 6th day was hell and way too much for my already exhausted and beaten down body.
I always do my best to keep in touch with the positives in my life, which is why I do my best to avoid the news. But let’s be honest avoiding the news is like avoiding the ocean in the middle of an island, it is pretty much impossible. It breaks my heart with all the hate that is breeding not only here in the United States where I live, but it has taken hold world-wide. It seems like hate spreads worse that a wildfire in a rain forest! I do believe the hate here in the states is continuously being ignited by one individual, which is really just SAD! I might be incorrect, but there has been a mass shooting in the United States at least monthly and sometimes more. What good does it really do to start killing people you do not agree with? I do not know what causes a person to break off from reality enough to start killing innocent people and I doubt I ever will know or understand this.
For the most part I keep all my opinions regarding politics to myself because that is something that is a HOT topic with most people. Some just can’t accept the let’s agree to disagree stance, but continue to fight their beliefs to the bitter end! I had to learn there are some people I can be very open with, but then there are those others I need to walk on pins and needles with because the argument isn’t worth it!
For so many years I always made Sunday be my “Relaxation Day!”, but in the recent months I decided to make Saturday be my actual relax/recharge day! I guess I thought after working 5 days, I need one day to just do nothing and it has been working rather well. But the funny thing is, I split my household work up over 3 days this weekend, which made things much easier on me! I think changing up what our “norm” are can be a good thing so we do not get totally burnt out from it all!
I hope your weekend has been great and I hope you are feeling well! Hopefully you used the weekend to take care of yourself and prepare yourself for a new week! It doesn’t matter that I actually like my job, the weekend still went by WAY too fast and I really could use just one more day! Please never forget that no matter how hectic my life might become, I am always sending you LOTS of love and comfort!
The past few weeks have been like a whirlwind with so many changes and I feel like I am constantly on the go. Packing up the home my husband and I lived in for 8 years was extremely overwhelming, but we managed to get it done. It is crazy how much 2 people can accumulate over the years! We already have 4 rather large boxes packed up ready to be donated to either Goodwill or Crisis Ministry. I feel like it is far better to donate to others in need than keep items we do not use and never just throw things away!
I am sorry if I have not responded to your comments or had a chance to read your fabulous posts, it might take me some time, but I am going to be playing catch up for a few days. Please bear with me through this transition and I will be back to normal, well as normal as I can get soon! I do miss y’all and I am looking forward to getting back into the swing of things.
I will give y’all a brief run-down of how things are going for me and my husband. I did start my new job and it is great! I am working full-time again which I have not done in a long time, but I am doing well. The people I work with now are absolutely incredible! We have been living in our new place for one week now and I know how to get to 3 places, work, the grocery store and the pharmacy! Pretty amazing, right?! We are still in the process of getting things organized, but we have plenty of time for all that so there is no use rushing anything! With working full-time again, I am still going to do my best to continue creating blog posts, but they definitely will not be daily. Again, please do not give up on me because I am going to be returning to doing what I really enjoy, which is my blog and communicating with y’all!
I hope y’all have a nice evening and you are feeling well! Always remember that no matter what I might be going through in life, I will always be sending y’all LOTS of love and comfort!
