Life is Good

We are midway through the first week of MS Awareness Month. Let's make a deal. I told my physical therapist yesterday that i really want a Fit Bit so that I can track my walking progress...that is, when I am "fit" enough to have enough steps to track. I'm not there yet. She suggested that I designate my "finish line" as the day I am released from PT. THEN I can acquire my Fit Bit, or whatever brand of fitness tracker I select. (There are SO many!)

I really like having a goal, a purpose, a reason to celebrate; so , that sounds like a plan to me.

My challenge to you: Set a goal for your self this month. 

Suggestions:
* Read a book about multiple sclerosis. (How are you doing with the two books I suggested last month?)
* Loose a pound or two.
* Walk a set number of steps a day.
* Clean out that closet and discard a few unnecessary items. (Have you tried the Kon Method?)
*Stop eating bread for the month,
* Drink eight documented glasses of water a day.
*Keep an MS journal and record your symptoms every day for the rest of the month.
*Adhere to an exercise regime and keep it for the rest of the month. (Are you familiar with Body Groove? It is a fantastic way to get moving!)
*LAUGH every day.

As I said before, I like having a goal. My goal today is to bowl three 100(+) games. So, I had better get ready to hit the alley.

Have a wonderful day.
 Life is good,
Lisa

CBD and MS

We warriors are a resilient breed. After speaking extensively with a CBD enthusiast over the weekend, i finally bit the bullet and bought the "good" stuff...all in the name of research. Things have changed a bit since my first CBD experience, including the flavor. This particular product comes in natural (an earthy flavor), peppermint (self-explanatory), and cinnamon (Yum!).Because particular brand (Hempworx) has ONLY two ingredients : CDB and hemp seed oil.  

I decided to document my experience here, so if any of you are interested we can discuss our personal journeys. As you all know, MS is an expensive condition that requires careful thought to additional treatments and related expenditures, most of which are not recognized by insurance companies and/or medical professionals; so, every experience is a financial gamble.

I started my new "treatment" on Saturday, October 26, 2019. The instructions direct you to take two-three drops under the tongue twice a day for th…

BORED? ARE YOU A COUCH POTATO?

Bored? Are you a couch potato?

If you are already prone to this malady, the following information may be dangerous in encouraging this behavior. This writer is not responsible for damages done.

As a result of today's blog topic,  my personal couch potato activities are responsible for the lack of yesterday's post. In an attempt to justify my actions, I blame Netflix (in the name of research).

 The best way to prove a fact is to test it, right? Yesterday I definitely put Netflix to the test by watching hours of Safe, a one-season Harlon Coben creation that whetted my love for crime/mystery/action-based entertainment. Harlon Coben is an American author whose work I have enjoyed immensely over the years,  discovering Safe as Coben's break out into film became that much sweeter when The Five caught my attention another series of his own. I will finish The Five today (unless some saves me) so that I can further investigate Coben with viewings of The Stranger. I might take a break …

Writing an Appeal

I am looking for advice. Some  of you know that my insurance denied any assistance with acquiring the Walk Aide L300; mostly on the basis of a lack of clinical evidence that that the device is not necessary to the diagnosis of MS. 

I am now filing an appeal and am looking for suggestions/advice/prior experience in the appeal process.Thus far, my rough draft is equal in volume to a short story. "Cause, y'know, I like to write.

If  there are words of wisdom out there (I know there are), please share with me. If you have attempted to leave comments here in the past and failed, that issue is fixed (Thank you, Rebecca), so I implore you to spread your words here

Thanks in advance.

Have a wonderful weekend,
Lisa
