Hibernation Mode

Tuesday, November 19, 2013



I haven't been blogging for a couple of days. The weather changes made me go into a hibernation mode for a couple of days. For some reason when winter storms roll in, it makes the MS symptoms flare up big time. I get so sleepy I can't keep my eyes open and weak I sleep for hours each day. It feels like there is no energy to do anything. I even felt to weak to sit up in the recliner. It took less muscles to lay down and read than to sit and read. Today I got up feeling super weak was up for a couple of hours and slept for about 4 more hours. My foot was dragging, I couldn't even lift it up off the carpet.





It's super frustrating as I love walking in the rain, feeling the mist hitting my skin, the cool temperatures.






This afternoon it's easing up, thank goodness. I hate feeling like I am in a coma sleep. Today after my morning nap, I made some fresh juice. It was apple, grapes, oranges, cucumber, turmeric, ginger, and garlic. I added lots of fresh turmeric root. It seemed to perk me up a bit.






A few hours later I made some fresh juiced bitter melon and turmeric combo. Hubby and I named it SH**Ty Shots ! They are so nutritious and good for the body but bitter melon juice is very bitter. He is curious to see how it affects his blood sugars. I am feeling lots better drinking a shot or two of bitter melon juice a day. I like the fact that bitter melon keeps sugars from getting to cancer cells. It sounds like a good juice to drink as a tonic.

    Thanks for posting the great cat pictures. The rabbit in the cup is so cute it's almost unbelievable. I love walking in the rain, too. So sorry you have to miss out on it. Hope you start feeling better soon.

    When the seasons change, I also feel very fatigued and my bones ache with my MS.
I was just complaining about the same thing when Daylight Savings Time changed.
I hope you feel better soon.

    Yikes, and here I was whining because it was drizzling all day and we got damp - not even really wet - during our walk. Fluffy pups looked misted. Hope you feel perkier soon.

Weather changes kill me. I think anyone with medical issues feel worse during cold weather. It makes your bones ache. emoticon

Loved the cats and rabbit pictures. The only problem is after looking at them, now I'm sleepy. emoticon

    I'm sorry to hear the reason you haven't been blogging, as usual, was due to not feeling well, as opposed to being too busy with fun stuff. Hope your tonics and a change in the weather raise your energy level back up. emoticon Feel better soon!

    I hope you feel better soon. My best friend has MS and she is going through a flare up right now also.

I have pain issues aggravated by the weather, especially the cold. I do know what you mean about wanting the hibernate. The cold weather just makes me want to stay huddled up with a blanket and my heating pad.

    I hope you feel better! Do you ever take tumeric in capsule form? I've been doing it for a couple of weeks, it's supposed to rev up the metabolism, too soon to tell if it's doing anything for me. I hope your days get better! emoticon
