Fighting Multiple Sclerosis

A New Beginning

First I would like to say, It has been a while since my last blog and for that I apologize to my readers. With that said I have a few things I would like to share.

Something that has been going on with me is the wonderful MS Bear Hug. This has been coming on and off for a little over a month now. Just this evening I was having a wonderful conversation with a Dear friend and it was pointed out to me that during our intense conversation the bear hug seemed to be gone. Not that it was completely gone but my mind was off of it and my stress level had been reduced. So I think for future bear hugs I will be practicing relaxation and meditation or another great talk with my friend. About a month ago I ended up catching a horrible cold/flu that took it's tole on me. Over the last couple weeks I started noticing my symptoms had gotten worse and the pain more intense to the point I was NOT sleeping at all. Made that dreadful call just to have my Neuro say he thinks I am having an exacerbation. It has been pretty intense except for one day when I got super mans boost of energy and accomplished the task of a few house hold chores. People let me be the one to warn you when your body is acting up energy or no energy it is not the time to go all commando on your household chores.

Something else that has been noticed that I would like to touch on is depression. There have been so many of us depressed and the question as come up, is this being depressed b/c of MS or is MS actually making us depressed? There was some research found that suggest that in some of MS patients the patient has no control over there depression. You can actually get damage to that part of the brain that will in turn cause you to be depressed. Just a little something to think about and maybe a good topic to bring up at the next Doctors Appointment.

I don't have much else to blog about this evening except the evil fact of no sleep is hitting again. Maybe that will be tomorrows while I'm trying to stay awake.

God Bless to all
May you be freed of your Aces and Pains
