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!

Whats happened to my concentration! ๐Ÿค”

When ur MS isn’t behaving and you have very little concentration!
Yeah… so, this happened when I was creating today! 
Chopping veg to go in slow cooker when I saw this sad face! ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ”ช๐ŸŒถ๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ˜ฅ

Vix – 1       MS – 0

Food is cooking nicely, managed to get myself another healthy lunch as well!

I’d call that a win! ๐Ÿ‘

Nuerogenic bladder nightwalker

๐Ÿ™‹ Hi, my name is Vix & I’m a nightly pee-a’holic ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿšพ

Ha, yeah, my bladder woke my brain up! 

This is why I so easily, randomly, fall asleep in the day time! ๐Ÿ˜ด

From the occasion night walker ๐Ÿ˜‰

โ€‹Another course of antibiotics! 

The joys of an MSr with a lazy bladder! ๐Ÿ˜•
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!

MS people are some strong mother fkers

5:45am and I’ve already been fully awake for an hour and half, to say I #slept much last night would be an #overstatement! 

#Coughing, #spluttering, #sneezing, #backfiring, it was all going on! At 2am I thought it was 5am! 4am Deb asked if I wanted a #drink, I declined as I had already decided to move my body to the lounge! Poor Deb needs her #sleep and so I left her in #peace!
Thanks to my #MS, sleep just isn’t working so well lately! I don’t remember the last time I slept past 5am without unbroken sleep, and many trips to the #toilet! More of that coming up in my latest #blog! 
If its not my #MSbladder playing up, its a #headcold & a nasty one at that! 

#Grittyeyes, #burningfizzingnose, #leakingnose, #razorblades in my throat, #tonsils that feel the size of #golfballs and my #chest is on fire every time I attempt to #cough! 
I remember when a #cold was just a cold but now they take a whole new meaning and deserve a name far worse! 

Its understandable why they are so much worse for us when our (MSrs) #immunesystem #attacks itself on a daily basis! Its like it has far better things to do than fight off a pesky cold, like attack the protective #coating that covers our #nervefibres, causing signals sent from your #brain through our #bodies to be incorrect!

Having a head cold when your immune system is already attacking itself!

โ€‹Its a Pajamas all day and Netflix kinda day! 
Thoughts come before action, but this time my body has to come first! 
Yoga is teaching me to take better care of myself! Even if it means cancelling favourite classes because I need to reserve my energy! 

I always forget that even the tiniest head cold can have major impact when you have a chronic illness where your immune system attacks itself on a daily basis!
Hoping the more I rest, the quicker I can shift this head cold. Woke up this morning feeling like my tonsils have taken over my throat! 
Looking forward to my poorly wifey getting home from work so we can netflix and chill together until Tuesday! ๐Ÿ˜

You are something magical

โ€‹”You are something magical”
Remembering this today, especially after receiving 2 letters from my neurologist via my GP

The letters are from my latest routine #appointment with #neuro for my #ms review which was back in September.
The letters speak briefly about my MS but mainly about my weight gain 

I know this is part of a medical practitioners job but I could have cried whilst reading it! 
He says about how we discussed my increase in antidepressant which I also use for pain relief and the possibility of this being a reason for the rapid increase in weight.
Well Mr hoity toity, I’m doing the best I can right now & I’m happy with that! 
Looking forward to my lovely Yoga teachers return from her jollies so we can make a start on me being one of her health coach case studies.
