  • MS is kicking my ass
  • I try not to complain though
  • I slept today for a lot. I woke up with Coach like usual, drank about 4 cups of coffee, ate my cereal, sent him off to work. I started reading the news & doing the usual morning routine when all of the sudden… I woke up. Yep. I fell asleep sitting upright at the table. Guess that was my not so subtle clue that I needed more sleep
  • I think it was around 9ish when I went to bed. I woke up when someone started knocking on the door. I have no idea how long the knocking had been going on. I rolled out of bed, looked at the clock… flippin 12:45… sheesh.
  • 3 more cups of coffee
  • I finished reading the news & headed to the shower. I figured if I took a shower & had some lunch maybe that would help. Pft.
  • My shower was 30 minutes long. I had to turn the water off & take a seat right there in the shower. Now, if you remember, we live in a tin can. The shower ain’t so big. It was fairly easy getting down to the sitting position… how I got up I cannot tell you. Somehow I managed though.
  • I started working on a sketch yesterday. I finally got it painted in tonight. In fact, I just finished it up. Coach is home now so I will scan it in tomorrow.
  • Right now, I’ll throw dinner on the plates, warm it up, and then it’ll be off to bed. I sure hope that tomorrow is better. I hate feeling this way… fatigued, dizzy, confused. I really hate it.

Progress is being made….

Being an adult is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane.

  1. I meant poof not puff LOL

  2. I’m so sorry that you’re getting your arse whooped by the demon. Tomorrow will be better, I promise, and hey….if you need help getting out of that shower, just holler! ;-))

  3. I so understand. I have all this stuff that I want to do and then puff energys gone.

  4. Exaustipated. Too tired to give a sh_t. And yes, MS fatigue is still one of the worst symptoms for me. Get up, have a rest. Take a shower. Have a rest. Dry myself. Have a rest. Get dressed. Have a BIG rest. Sucky, sucky, sucky.
    I really hope the beast leaves you alone for a bit.
    Hugs from afar.

    • exaustipated! i love it! i remember now reading that over on your blog… what a great word!

      i love napping… i just hate napping for hours & hours. seems like a waste of perfectly good time, ya’ know? i mean, since our days are numbered, i really would like to be awake and enjoy them LOL

  5. your humor in spite of having to deal with chronic illness continues to inspire me….

    • lol thanks pam! i gotta keep laughing to prevent causing the great flood of tears. it’s so much better to find the twisted humor in it all.

  6. Oh Sherri, I don’t know what to say. I wish you could get some home support to help you. Do you have shower chair? Now I am worried about you. And please complain. MS is a mean bitch. xo

    • when coach got home last night & i told him about what happened, he said the same thing. so i suppose this weekend when he has some time to go with me, we’ll go find a little shower chair. get me a cup holder and i would just stay in there enjoying the cool water raining down on me! sounds like the perfect solution to alot of problems LOL

      although i don’t have any home support, i do keep my phone very near me at all times. i’ve worried quite a bit that i would fall or something else would happen while coach is working. he doesn’t have his phone on the field with him. i figure if i can’t get up or if i get hurt i’ll just call 9-1-1 for help.

  7. ((hugs)) so understood
    Stay inspired!
