MS Has Been Kicking My Ass

Just when I thought this relapse was getting better it got way worse. Yesterday sucked, I was so fatigued; I felt weak, dizzy, my vision has been a little more blurry than usual, and my fine motor skills have been getting progressively worse making typing really difficult. Today I woke up feeling extremely weak, I didn’t even want to get up! But I woke up early as I slept pretty well last night; I took VESIcare last night and wow, it really does work better than oxybutynin!  I didn’t get up once to use the restroom last night! So I forced myself up. I don’t know why… So I went downstairs, watched the news for a bit and then went back to bed. I can’t explain how weak and heavy I felt, it reminds me off when I was little and had the flu; I just wanted to lie in bed limp.

Time To Get My Life In Order

Yesterday was my birthday, I turned 26. I have been thinking about this day for a while now; not because I had exciting plans or anything but because the last year or two has really sucked.

I want to be able to look back on yesterday and think, “wow, my life was such a mess” keyword “was”.

Relapse? Klonopin Withdrawal?

OK… I thought I was starting to feel better but then everything got horrible again… I woke up nauseous and even more dizzy again; back to square one. I didn’t eat all day, just dinner. First it was because I was too nauseous and then when I started feeling ok enough to eat, I went downstairs and it was just too hot in the house (we are in the 100’s already). So forget that. I had been taking smaller and smaller doses of cannabis to see how little I could take while still getting the nausea relief I wanted because too much and I am high and I sort of am not trying to be high all the time, I would like to be able to just function clear-headed you know? Well I found the right dose yesterday but it was just too hot to go downstairs and cook.
