Wow! I seriously just lost a week of my life. While I had my cell phone and could have blogged about the horrible cold turn flu, having the strength to do anything was a stretch. Thankfully my side of the bed is right next to the bathroom. I actually would remind myself daily not to smell! I mean I seriously felt like a parent of a newborn. Thank goodness for an awesome husband that helped keep track of days/time/ and meals! Just crazy!
I am finally starting to feel sorta better. I can breathe and my chest doesn't feel like a brick on it.
Good to feel alive!

I often wonder what issue is connected to what. I mean I am very aware of my body and know when my legs are weak. I also know when the heat is getting to me. Those are both things that I can point to and say without a doubt, it's MS related.
But my nose... It runs like crazy! Or it will get stuffed up and I am miserable. Either way, rarely a day goes by that sinus "something" isn't a factor in my life. I seriously don't remember a day when I didn't have to blow my nose multiple times. And yes, I take allergy medicine and about a billion other things to avoid the feeling. Trust me it is not a great life!
It is seriously crazy. And I can't help but wonder is my MS part of my sinus hell?

In 2004 my life came crashing down. The words "multiple sclerosis" back then still were such a huge long term unknown in the sense of treatment options and long term care. I saw myself with little to no options available for life...
For about 5 minutes!
It really never dawned on me that MS would ruin my life, just change it. I knew people that had MS and their lives had been... Forever changed. I guess it's easy to say I have always been determined not to be them.
Do I have a secret? Some super medical treatment or medical therapy- Heck no!
I have listened to my Doctors over the years and followed their advice (within reason). I have stuck to taking meds when needed as needed.
And sure, my life isn't roses. I mean its 12:40 am and I am up typing about my MS & reading old blogs to see how things have changed or when things have bothered me the most (to write about them)... But truth is... I am pretty darn lucky!
I'll take it! Leg cramp and sleepy issues and all!

Then it was time to test my shoulder. Only one way to see how well my workouts have helped... I figured some bonding with my daughter over some archery way the best way to do both!
Problem with full days... Fatigue creeps in quickly and head fog can be painfully real.
It becomes debilitating to the point of just wanting to chill. Doesn't do well for a social life. But laying in a comfy bed, watching tv, and catching up on the news (or newsfeeds) is just what the Dr ordered!
Snuggling in shifts with everyone who stops by (kids & hubby) is an added bonus. Of coarse having a dog that doesn't want to leave your side is even sweeter.
Yep, I'm hoping I get a full nights rest. Cause tomorrow I've got a full day. I don't have time for head fog and I certainly don't have time for MS.
I'm Made Strong...
