Since I have been caught up on the mental/emotional aspect of my life you can expect that I will start off this entry in regards to “How I am doing”. Physically, I don’t know that I am any different than yesterday but emotionally I feel great.
Yesterday started off horribly but it ended better than I could have ever imagined it to have ended, in fact, I had a better time yesterday then I have had since this whole MS thing came up. Once again I have prevented MS from preventing me from doing what I want to do.
Yesterday I spent the day with my good friends Phill and Jeri (Phill’s girlfriend), we went to Redlands, checked out some shops, explored some old abandoned house that we fantasized about someday buying and fixing up, and then we took a trip to Forrest Falls, which is not too far from Big Bear. It was beautiful! The weather was perfect, the scenery was amazing, the smells, the sounds, everything! I officially want to live there! It’s a nice little mountain town without the killer mountain drive, it’s only about five or 10 minutes uphill, no curvy roads, and 15 mins away from society, shopping centers, etc. it’s perfect for me! One day…
Anyways, despite my physical impairments we went on a hike along a small river bed up to a very large waterfall. I am so bitter that I did not have a camera with me, it was just amazing, picture perfect! I never wanted to leave! I took some pictures with my cell phone but they do not do justice to the beauty we witnessed, it was so relaxing, it was the best thing for me after all my stress and for my overall mental well-being regarding my health situation. I seriously could have set up a tent and spent the next month or year there rather than coming home, I cannot express how much I loved that place!
We plan on taking another day trip up there very soon, I will take many pictures! We also plan on going on a camping trip this Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, it will be nice and relaxing to enjoy the mountain air and escape the desert heat. I can’t wait!
