Choosing how to handle my MS

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a difficult disease!
We don’t CHOOSE to have it, but sometimes (mood dependent) we can CHOOSE how we handle the many symptoms of MS

Mostly I try to choose laughter…

25TH DECEMBER…

Me: Looking at a pile of gifts Deb had unwrapped…
“Is that everything you had in your stocking?”

Deb: Looking very pleased with her gifts…
“Yeah, why?”

Me: Getting brain ache thinking…
“I’m sure there should be some other things” 🤔

Deb: Looking surprised…
“Oh, okay”

28TH DECEMBER…

Me: Walks in to the lounge feeling very pleased with myself…
“Left or Right?”

THIS STORY is all thanks to my MeSsy brain letting me forget where I put the first xmas gifts I bought for the wife! 😂

This Christmas card is so perfect for this situation!

If I stay in the moment, being more ‘present’ I’m more likely to have a better memory recall & know where I put things!
Also…
If I buy her less presents, I more likely to remember /have better memory recall and know where I put the present (less of!) 😂

‘Accept compliments’
The first challenge today is to finish this sentence…

‘My favourite compliment to receive is…’

… My strength and growth on my continuing journey of bettering myself! 

Its also lovely to know that I am inspiring others as well! 
Today’s compliment comes courtesy of my beautiful​ yoga teacher & health coach @louiseavilesyoga

Thank you Louise! 
It has also come at a vital time & links in with the video part of day 6, ‘Training your inner self talk’ 

I must start trusting my yoga journey, stay patient and stop comparing because this is my journey, no one else’s!

More antibiotics!

​Another course of antibiotics! 

The joys of an MSr with a lazy bladder! 😕
So, on top of my head cold and chesty cough, I now have my third bladder infection in as many months! I seriously need some probiotics
The blog i started a month ago about this part of my ms is growing!

You are enough!

​🔸Never look in the mirror and put yourself down, you see more than others do and less then others as well! You don’t see your own beauty!

🔸Get rid of your scales, they only thing they’re good for is to tell you numbers, they’re rubbish, they don’t tell you the truth: what an incredible, beautiful soul you are!

🔸Never question if your good enough, for anything or anyone! Just know that you are! 

🔸Always see the beauty in everything! It is possible! 

🔸Know how strong you are! You were given your life because you ARE strong enough!

Breathe!

1-1 Yoga! 

Today I will try to remember that where ever I get to in my practice is ok!

I will remember that not only have I completely stopped one of my MS nerve pain meds but I have also halved the main one as well!

Today I will remember not to be hard on myself because this is going to hurt & there’s a reason for it! 
I have to overcome the pain and not let it overcome me! I am in charge of own thoughts! 

It is with my mind and the breath alone that will get me through this! 


As with all my blogs please feel free to share using the options at the end of this blog.

Any comments are also always welcome! 

Thanks, Vix
