  • It’s been an amazing month. That’s how much time has already gone by with this new job. I have to say, I’m very happy where I’m at right now.
  • Based on the lack of posting on my part it’s probably easy to tell that I’m whooped. I’m worn out & pretty lazy by the end of the day. I knew that was going to happen. No matter how much some people I know thought it would be different. So many thought I’d get used to it, build up endurance, start getting better even. I know better than that. Mentally I do feel better but physically, well, that’s another story.
  • I have learned though, that the expectation is for me to just push through. Keep going. Keep going. Don’t stop. Okay, I will do that. I am doing that. Coach is very supportive and takes very good care of me. He wishes that I could have whatever I need to feel better… if that means not working or whatever. But we just can’t afford that and obviously, the government has different ideas about what’s good for me.
  • The government… it’s so big. Interfering in everyone’s life has been the main goal of the government. They know what is best for each of us no matter what the situation is. It amazes me that they are so egotistical to believe they know what’s best for me & everyone else without knowing me or my life or my situation, without walking in my shoes so to speak. I have problems with that. But there are more people who want the government to make their decisions & choices. They want the government telling them what to do with every aspect of their lives. By doing that, those people are absolved from all blame & responsibility for their life. Jacked up, isn’t it?
  • I have renewed my research on my one great discovery. Tan fat looks way better than white fat.
  • Summer is almost here… it’s pretty much been on its way back in for a few weeks… I always thought the ups & downs of temperatures in central Texas were drastic. I didn’t have a clue. Down here it’s much worse. We can be 42 in the morning and 88 during the day, then the next day we’ll be 60 nighttime and 73 daytime, then we’ll be 45 nighttime 86 daytime… back & forth… Add to this the winds… most days there is at least a breeze – of 20 mph minimum. That’s just a breeze. It’s not windy until it tops 30 mph.
  • I bought a Vixen Vapors vaporizing system. It came in Friday afternoon. I started using it Saturday morning. I miss cigarettes. But I’m not craving and messed up and in need of coma-inducing medications right now. This is a good thing. I bought the starter kit… one battery, 2 clear atomizer things, a case, charger, and 3 bottles of flavored liquid. The liquid is less than $6 and lasts for a long time. I’m going to save so much money using this thing.
  • It’s Monday morning. I’m tired. I’m dozing off as I type this. I’ve had my medications and am working on the coffee. In about 1 ½ hours I’ll be awake. But I hate this part of dozing and startling myself awake when I should be up getting dressed. Hate it.
  • Have a great week. I hope to write more this week but the way things are going, it will probably be the weekend.
Being an adult is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane.

  1. Congratulations on achieving the first month. I am in awe. No-one who battles MS fatigue could possibly think that you would ‘harden up’ and develop more energy. We wish. Take care of yourself. It is always so difficult when your head and your body have such different ideas about what is good for you.

    • The fatigue is incredible. There’s no getting around that. Thankfully Coach helps pick up the slack at home so I can spend that time resting as needed. It’s very difficult to manage the battle between head & body. Sucks really.

  2. I’m even amazed it’s been a month already. I’m glad you’re able to keep going. And not smoking is ALWAYS a good choice. No one should smoke unless they’re on fire.

    • Isn’t crazy how fast time goes by?

      Not smoking is going to be one of the absolute biggest accomplishments of my life. It’s the most difficult thing I’ve ever done.
