Change; Lets Get Back On Tack



CHANGE
Many people hate it, even fear it; I have gone through a lot in the last few months, probably more
than has happened in the last few years!
Though most my change has been good, some has been bad. I refer specifically to
my health; my weight has been plummeting! I couldn’t figure out why but after
ruling a few things out I am now thinking it has been due to Nuvigil.

You see I started losing weight at about the time I started
taking Nuvigil everyday just a few months ago. Since then I have lost between
25 and 28 pounds (11-13kg). IN LESS THAN 3 MONTHS! I had to look
at what had changed since then and besides work it was Nuvigil. I looked up
side effects and guess what? The last one on the list of “less common side
effects” was weight loss! Looking up
“Nuvigil and weight loss” revealed that some people take it to try to help lose weight because Nuvigil can change the way you metabolism works! So I am
stopping that. Today is the first day I am going without it so we will see how
my energy is now that it’s nice and chilly out and I am always busy. HOPEFULLY,
I will see my weight start to go up a bit in the next few weeks. Time will
tell.

Now, blogging and my work in the world of Multiple Sclerosis.
Obviously it’s been lacking, by which I mean, it’s non-existent. I have been so busy starting a new life that I have
no time or energy to blog or do research! Not having a workstation/desk doesn’t
help because I come home and think “ok, in order to write, I have to set
everything up; fold out TV trey, chair, keyboard, mouse, etc.” and that all
seems easy but when you’re tired it’s difficult. Being able to get home, sit down
at a desk, and just write before knocking out would be so much easier. I am
working on a few ideas so hopefully that will change soon.
So let’s go over the list of how I am health-wise really quick. Losing weight, feel weak, knee pain, other joint pain, usually exhausted,
generally not feeling well, and little things that randomly pop up here and
there that may or may not be directly due to MS. All this I hope to start
changing over the month. The weather is starting to “cool down” so that is
helping; I feel great in it! I am working on a few ideas in my head for a
better blogging set up so I can once again resume being “useful” to the world
of MS.
So give me some time and I know it will turn around!
