Another Bad Day Wouldn’t You Agree Multiple Sclerosis?

The Answer is “yes”, MS does seem to agree that today was a bad day. Waking up early after hardly any sleep, stuck in traffic, everything going wrong, it was one of those “catch every red light” kind of days and the stress was building… I reacted pretty quickly to the stress, well, my MS did is what I mean. My vision started getting worse which is not good when you have a bunch of out of town driving to do. I started experiencing pain and heat flashes, at least I think that’s what they were. I would be cold one second then hot the next and every time I felt like I was overheating I had a poking, scratching, burning sensation rush over my skin. My balance feels off, well, pretty much everything feels off. I’m just exhausted and I need some decent rest… I need to dumb some of this stress that has been building for the last few months. Sucks, I don’t know what to do, before I was diagnosed with “being single” my significant other and I could leave town for the weekend, go to Disneyland, etc, and that helped a lot but now it seems like no matter what I do I can’t leave my stress behind, it just follows me. You would think as good as I am at forgetting thing that wouldn’t be an issue but life is not without a sense of irony is it?

Anyways, so what was I doing out and about today? Well I finally made it to the doctors appointment Social Security made me… The doctor was nice and she worked with someone who has MS so not sure if that is going to help my case or not. I had to go to the Sheriff’s department in downtown Riverside to turn in some bench warrant information regarding a small claims case I won over a year and a half ago but of course these jerks won’t pay up the $2,000 they owe me so bench warrant time. Thing is the paperwork said to bring everything back to the court, the lady I talked to on the pone said to bring it back to the court, and of course, the Sheriff’s Department said to bring it back to the court… The only people who said to take it elsewhere, was the court… And that was after standing in line for an two hours. So glad I woke up all early to make it to the Sheriff’s department and stand in a crowded hot room full of angry people, I’m talking a 10×10 room full of maybe 20 people or so. And most of them were unhappy…
