Progress – Spoke Too Soon…

Photobucket

Looks like I still need the wheel chair at certain times, mostly nights and early mornings because when I get tired my balance gets screwy… Starting my Meclizine back up… Balance has been getting worse so now I need to see if it was because I cut the Meclizine out… Took first pill this morning.

Still trying to avoid use of wheel chair as much as possible. Using walker mostly and sometimes my cane in tight spots that the walker will not fit in. Today however I am worried I will fall because of my balance so I’m being extra careful… Had some close calls already…

THE KEY IS TO NOT PANIC whether you are loosing your balance or choking, keep your mind clear and calm! Easier said than done?

Hopefully dizziness goes away again, fingers crossed!

    Hi Matt,

    Spent the last bit of time, going through your blogs and responses and I can easily see how you touch hearts! Thank you for that.

    I do belong to an MS Group, for the past several years and have heard so many ideas, about managing MS, done tons of research, have many newsletters and etc. sent to me. I do believe that research is truly progressing every month, of every year, more than ever before in our history. So that is inspiring! I don't think, for a moment, that where you are at…..is where you will stay….because of so much more understanding of MS and the advances happening all the time.

    I would like to share my opinion, for what it is worth. Diets,exercise, positive thinking, yoga, pilates, tai chi, stretching, massage, more MRI's, walking, running, meditation, will not get rid of your MS……all of those things are valuable, for the better quality of the healthy part of you, they are not to be denied, but for some reason, those of us with MS, in whatever degree………….IT IS WHAT IT IS……………..
    People like you, especially someone being so young and going through so much, is truly an inspiration of the human spirit and you are, I believe, are meant to help so many others.

    Probably mentioned before, but I know my MS started when I was about 15 years old, but no one, including me, had no idea whatsoever, that was going on. Now, at my age of 62, I know, I know….when it all started! Thankfully, research is now realizing that MS can start as a childhood disease. Who Knew????

    The one totally positive thing we can all rely on, is that remission happens all the time! Maybe your wheelchair days are only happening, so that you can communicate to so many others, that you know, exactly what they are going through.

    YOU will be walking again, but you will never forget this time, in the struggle you are in right now, and that it will be a gift of hope to others.
