MS messed with the wrong girl

​My post-fight klub picture with my DebbieRahRah to the left & Laura to the right! 

Amazing, hot, sweaty class last night! 

*tank top reads “MS messed with the wrong girl* HA! Didn’t it just! 

MS awareness week 2016, day 6!

This is an emotional, heart string pulling post but is such a good reminder for me and an excellent peace of advice for everyone!…

No matter what you are going through right now, remember, you are never alone!
Find yourself people that are in the same situation as you! This post explains how I did just that and by doing it I realised I wasn’t alone & by being with these amazing people I found that I could feel normal! I was no longer the odd one out!
I found people that spoke the same MeSsy language as me!

Find yourself a person or find your people!
I found mine!

This picture popped up on my facebook memories! Gulp! Deep breath!

Facebook is great for helping me remember past events, even when they have a massive effect on the current day! This photo was taken 4 years ago at my 2nd Ladies with Lesions meet.
How sad that a lady in this picture is no longer with us 😐

😥 Tanya (in the middle at the back) founder member of the group for women with MS ‘Ladies with Lesions’
Being a member of this group brought me my incredible friends & showed me I wasn’t the only person with MS, it’s a very lonely time when u find out you have a life long illness (disease)
I honestly believe that being a member of this group (LWL) helped to shape the person I am today!

For this I will be forever thankful to Tanya! Forever missed and never forgotten! Rest in peace lovely! 😭

Be kind to yourself

I may not be the strongest
I may not be the fastest
But I’ll be damned if I’m not trying my hardest!

I may not be able to go to every exercise class I book, working hard in classes tests me the next day!
Hard choice but sometimes I just have to say to myself, I’m being kinder by letting my body rest, for now!
Some people may think it’s quitting, I know different!

HAPPY MS AWARENESS WEEK!

My immune system attacks itself. What does yours do?

Yesterday I had a very productive day! Managed to get out in the garden 1st thing and gave it a quick spruce around, on form in pilates  and then shopping after!
I’m so on it today!
Time for a rest before body combat class later! I’m not saying I’ll do all of it but being there is better than not! Right!

Yes I have MS, yes I do all of these things to the best of my ability because by doing these things I am looking after myself!

Happy MS awareness week!
