Do something nice for yourself




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:)

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
