Happy New Year!

Saturday, December 26, 2009

I hate to blame everything on the MS, but I have been wondering for a long time if weight gain is a symptom of MS. I think that not being able to exercise just adds to the problem.

I wish that everyone will have a happy, healthy New Year and remember the little train that could. I think I can, I think I can I think I can.

The Boogyman

Thursday, November 20, 2008

Having MS is like living with a feeling of a ghost behind a door. Dr. Chalnck recommends thinking of your MS as a dependent child. After all, she explained, MS isn't a boogyman. It shares you body. You can't leave home without it, even though you'd like to. You do lose some spontaneity by taking your MS into account, but you will gain better clarity and calm.

"I have to take care of my MS in the same way care for my animals," she said. Before I leave the house, I know I have to prepare them. MS is the same. I know I have to prepare for them. MS is the same. I's a dependent -- it's a very independent dependent, but it's still something for which I am responsible.

I have been working on my perspective and while I am no more fond of my MS now than when I was first dxd I think I would do things a little differently today. I would try to plan a little better.

Hind site is 20x20 and no one knows the future, but with MS not ignoring what could be big problems in the future and facing them now is less scarry than trying to ignore it and hoping it will just go away.

I guess one can apply this to any of any illness or disease. No one knows the future and can apply it to anything we are facing. It is the not knowing that scares us. When we know what we are facing we can at least deal with it a little better.

    I read an article about a Yoga Master who had MS and how he had used YOGA for years to hold off his illness. It was in Yoga Journal.

There comes a point in your life when you realize:

who matters,
who never did,
who won't anymore...
and who always will.
So, don't worry about people from your past,
there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

    This is so well put! It's a shame I didn't realize this earlier in life - it would have saved me from some anxiety and worry that was completely needless. emoticon

Fell off the wagon BIG TIME last night. A large can of Poppycock Cashew and Carmel Popcorn was given to us. DH was going to take it to work with him. But since I knew I just had a short time I was just standing there shoveling into my mouth. I decided to keep it because I thought I could handle it. Well, I got hungry just before my DH came home last night and I went to look for a "legal" snack and instead I thought I could stop at just one handful of Poppycock and put the can back. Well, I took one handful, then another and another and the next thing I knew I sitting at the table with it. Eating an apple, orange, carrots or even one of the 100 calorie snacks didn't even cross my mind until afterwords and then it was too late.

So the moral to that story is don't have anything in the house that you can't control. I have been doing well with the 100 calorie snacks (surprisingly). But at least I can control myself with those. It isn't easy, but at least one doesn't have so much guilt and the extra weight that an event like this can cause.

JUST SAY NO! Nancy Reagan

Food is an addiction. Only unlike other addictions, we need food to sustain our lives and that is why it is so hard.

Confession is good for the soul, but I still feel guilty and ashamed.

    Don't beat yourself up! It is not the end of the world. Just start over. Sometimes you just need to eat something "bad".

Encouragement

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

I got this from another group, but it is so good I thought I would share it.

Whatever your cross, whatever your pain, there will always be sunshine, after the rain.

Perhaps you may stumble, perhaps even fall, but God's always ready to answer your call. He knows every heartache, sees every tear, a word from His lips can calm every fear. Your sorrows may linger, throughout the night, but suddenly vanish, by dawn's early light.

The Savior is waiting somewhere above to give you His grace and send you His love.
