Happiness is…

A moment in the garden tidying & now were both walking like 90 year olds! 

Thought I’d have a bath to ease my aches and pains, forgot just how much the heat and humidity effects my MS! 

It was more like bathing in cement when I tried to move! 
Sooooooo, PJs are on! Hot water bottle on our backs & a takeaway ordered! 

All about balance!

How do I stay positive?

“When people ask me why am I so positive, I simply reply why not?” – Vix Edwards

  • I try to lift weights once a week
  • I try to practice Pilates 3 times a week
  • I try to practice Yoga almost everyday

I also have ms every single day but i don’t have to try with that one!
MS isn’t easy, there’s something different every day, but this doesn’t stop me living my life the fullest that I can!
I do my best to stay positive, which is where my exercise comes into play. 

Negativity is soul draining and exceptionally hard for me to get out of when it has me! I should imagine this is the same for anyone that has ever had a low mood day!
Imagine a tree, at the top of it is where the positivity is & this is where I aim to start my day! 

Lets say I wake up and its a beautiful day, sun shining, birds are singing, and I’m at the highest point of my positivity.

I sit up in bed and as I move my legs, my right leg is a little stiff. Hmm, that’s ok, I can handle that, except for when I start to walk out of the bedroom and I have to drag my leg, this knocks me down in my positivity.

So now, I’m no longer at the top of the tree. Now I’m on the branch below where I started, but thats ok, because I was at the top when I started my day, I am still closer to being at my most positive than my most negative & because I try to always see the positive in things, I should be able to get back to the top fairly quickly.
Remember though, I said this isn’t easy! Sometimes we come across things in life that will test us, sometimes we think we are going to break and never be the same person ever again. I’ve been there! Not just with my health, so I know how hard positivity can be, I’m not the same person, no, I use these experience’s as lessons and I grow from them!

When there’s only 2 choice’s, positivity & negaticity, I know which one I’d rather make!

Busy week!

​So heres what happened this morning, yes I know, its only 9am! 
Ok, so, I got myself ready for the gym. Thanks to my gawd damn awful chronic pain and having to increase my medication, I have put too much weight on & I’m incredibly unhappy! 

I did at least find out that it is the medication that has caused the gain! 

So I’ve decided to start going back to the gym & really give myself that push I obviously need! 
Anywayyyyy! I arrived at the gym & was just starting to put my disabled parking badge in the window when my phone made a noise (I never know what sound means what!) 

As I looked at my phone it reminded me of my physiotherapy appointment at the hospital! 

It also reminded me of my Chiropody appointment this afternoon!
OH MAAAAN! 
Its appears to be a week of medical appointments! 

β€’ Had my Tysabri yesterday (monthly MS meds) 

β€’ Physio today

β€’ Chiropody today

β€’ Blood test today

β€’ Yearly MS review tomorrow with Neurologist!
The fun just never stops!
