This is probably another post that I should call, “Oh look a squirrel” . I want to tell you about Thursday’s post op visit, but I am distracted by the Shocking sensation that seems to be taking over my body. So let’s start there.
I have said before numerous times that for me, the worst parts of having Multiple Sclerosis are the unpredictability of the disease, the struggle to adjust to new symptoms, and the fear that they might become permanent.
When a new symptom shows up, you might wonder if it has anything to do with MS. Is there something new in your life that is causing more stress? Did you eat the wrong foods? Did you overdo it? Maybe you are just sick? SO MANY questions…..
Today is one of those BAD days for me. I woke up this morning feeling “dizzy”. I had not even gotten out of bed but something didn’t feel right. As I moved to sit up, I felt like I had “the spins”, so I quickly laid back down.
As I began to take “inventory” of my body, I acknowledged the feeling of SHOCKS or Zapping in almost all of my appendages each time I moved them. Well now what? Laying in bed all day is not an option. I mean it, could be, but I hope not. Is anyone else home, if I try to stand up and my body doesn’t cooperate?….
Take some deep breaths Grace!!!!
How is that gonna help?!?!? What is that gonna fix?!?!?!? To be honest, it’s not going to FIX anything. BUT, it will allow you to calm down and focus on the present.
After calming myself down, I was able to focus on what I was feeling at the moment. I am/was scared. Am I having a flare up? I did just have surgery. I also currently have a UTI ( yah foley catheters) It’s also slump week. (even more than that, I am a week late getting my infusion) When you hear hoof-beats think horses, not zebras right?
So my plans for today will have to wait.
I will post again after I have had my infusion, or when the world stops spinning here.
