I am learning that the inability to sleep for several nights in a row has a very large and direct impact on my ability to walk.

This morning the chicken walk as appeared for the first time in 2 years. I have fully taken for granted how well my mobility has held up. I have taken for granted how good I’ve been feeling. And I was pretty smug about the lack of new white spots on my most recent MRI.

As I hobble the 5 feet from the coffee pot to the table, precariously grasping a HOT cup of coffee, my prayer for the day is that this is a temporary situation. So temporary that by 8 AM it will have resolved itself. There are too many meetings this morning with powers that be for my body to be rebelling against me.

In other news, it’s almost time to hit the road. I’m very excited to see my family again! It’s very hard to go 6 months between visits.



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

  1. I hope your day gets better and that your walking gets smoother. Curious – did you disclose your MS during your interview process? Would using a scooter at work on busy, wobbly days like this be possible?

    I hope your trip to see your Dad goes well. Are you flying solo, or is Coach going with you?

  2. Fatigue does my head in, and my body often follows suit. I hope you can find a little respite and rest. Like Muff, I am glad that you are going to see your family, and so very sorry about the reason.

  3. Chicken walk for you equals stumbling drunk for me! Even if it’s a hectic day, try to find time to sit. I’m glad you’re getting to see your family but sad for the reason.

  4. Hoping that the day gets better, always SUCKS when a “bad day” interrupts life. Annoying.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
