No matter how long I live in the company of the MonSter, I never get used to it. I get tired of pushing through the day on legs that will not move and feet that cannot feel.
After treating myself to a gentle yoga class this morning, I could barely move. I forced myself to ride the stationary bike to further stretch my frozen calf muscles and things loosened up a bit, but for the rest of the day I have felt half-baked. My toes continue to curl and my arms are just useless.
Tomorrow I get to bowl (yippee) and just wonder if I can even make it to the bowling alley. I don't figure anyone would miss me, but I refuse to give in to this beast. Even if it means falling flat on my face to the ridicule of an entire bowing alley. Just another day in the life...
On a lighter note, look what our MS Warriors in Belfast, Ireland, do for themselves. Looks like a neat idea.
It isn't always easy to feel worthy of self-indulgence, but it is really important. I did something for myself yesterday. I finished my letter of appeal to the insurance company regarding coverage for the Bioness L300.
Here's a link if you care to read it. Comments, suggestions, advice, all are welcome.

Do something nice for yourself this week. I'd advise steering clear of gentle yoga class for a while:)
