Exercise and MS

Last month I graduated from the Week MS Fitness Challenge which has encouraged me to remember to exercise at least a few minutes every day. 

This video introduces you to my instructor, Jeff. I'm sharing this with you because I sincerely believe in the positive benefits of exercise. Jeff encourages MS Warriors to keep moving. There is no magical sequence or disease altering routine, the end results are worth the effort. 

During the challenge, participants kept track of daily progression. At the conclusion of the eight weeks, I was amazed at the changes in my body AND in my attitude. 

Exercise is GOOD. It doesn't need to be sweat provoking nor do you need to perform the same movements every day. It is advised that the routine is practiced two to three times a day. Use your inner advisor as to how far you take the exertion, keeping in mind that the exercise should not hurt. As long as the muscles are fatigued, positive results will occur.

Post semi-panic

I rarely panic where my health is concerned. I mean, what is there left that I haven't experienced thus far living with the MonSter? 

[Screech...rhetorical question...don't really want to know the answer.]

But, I had a moment last week and bowed to my inner devil's advocate.

Thank goodness I have an excellent medical cheerleader in my camp. Ericka Blackwell may not be a fully credentialed neurologist, but  her compassion and interest is sincere and vastly more professional than many licensed neurologists I have met on this journey. So, she scheduled  an appointment  and sat patiently with me while we hashed out my current questions regarding my MS.

My biggest concern lately is the fact that my right (foot) toes (big toe and little one beside it) have been curling up painfully on a daily basis, further hampering the annoying foot drop that rules my world. Well, guess what? There is a muscle relaxant called Baclofin that is basically side-effect free that will help me with this.…

There is no GPS for MS

I have always been a rather trusting person. I believe that when someone tells me they are going  to do something in particular, I believe them. Until they renege on their promise; and then  they no long exist to me.I don't mean I hate or thwart them. That person just no longer holds my interest.

The same with 21st century technology. In today's advanced world of communication, it is imperative that we place our  trust in helpful devices like microwaves, electric garage door openers, and this wonderful invention called GPS (Global Positioning System/ Satellite). What a marvelous thing to be able to type in an address and be taken there, step-by-step. We will never be lost again!
