I went to my Neurologist Tuesday and she had to put me on another medicine in addition to the myriad of others that I take. I weighed 254 so I guess I can be thankful that it wasn't 264. She also pointed out that I should be taking Myripex 4 times per day and that is why my muscles won't stop jerking after exercise. Heat is the enemy of people with MS and with the price of gas the air conditioner is not an option so I try to make doctor appointments for myself and my son in the morning if at all possible. I have a cell phone so if I do have to get out in the afternoon and happen to get to hot and lose my mind I can call home and get directions back to my house. I try to get up this early so I can, if nothing else, do stretching exercises and a few strength training exercises. Please don't think me rude if you write to me and I do not immediately respond as the computer is giving me motion sickness these days...go figure! I haven't been able to blog or to show the exercises, water drank, etc. in a couple of weeks but I am doing it! I thought I'd be able to go swimming with the kids this year but the weather in Tennessee has gotten so wacky that we no longer have Spring or Fall seasons. It has been in the 90's here all week and next week is looking like more of the same. The purpose of this blog to anyone who might read this is to keep on keeping on! If you can only do a little then do a little and in the long run that little just may turn out to be a lot. Any exercise is better than none at all.
