Woohoo! Will still take some time to get back to normal (as normal as we can get LOL!), but it will be nice to be off crutches and not have that extra weight on your leg.

Marney, I had to quit because of fatigue. I am pretty sure my brain still works the way it should. Sometimes I have to go over it a bit to make sure I am doing things right but other the that. It mostly is fatigue and my right leg. I have not slept through the night in years. Last night my brain would not shut down and I was thinking of my daughter and her gymnastics. Why? I have no clue. She is a senior and the season is over. No more gymnastics unless she gets a job coaching.

I am thinking the crutches would be painful, unless you have the kind that wrap around the fore arm and not rest under your pit. That kind hurt my back. Sounds like you are plugging along and managing. The weather here is mostly nice now. We are expecting rain tomorrow, but I am not sure we will get much. Might get my beets planted tomorrow.

I am slowly but surely getting the deep down stuff done. I finished the kitchen and most of the bathroom. Living room is almost done. Just need to shampoo rug and mop. I will then need to make a few purses for the craft booth that I am having mid May.

I have been retired since 2007, I could not stay awake. LOL! It isn't good when you start to snore at your computer and the rest of the office wonders what you are doing.

I got my cp back and am typing away. I can post more now. You take care of you and hopefully you can get out a bit. Go to the zoo. I built arm muscles since I use a my chair for most of my shopping. I just can't get around stores. I found it is all about speed. LOL!

Had the staples taken out yesterday that DR made it hurt my daughter was right there watching and said so to me later he did not pull them out correctly and it hurt and some even bleeding darn it. She is a ICU Nurse and knows. Any way I said so I have three more weeks with the boot or less and he said you have four the little bone broke at the ankle and that takes longer to heal. Great I thought LOL. Oh well all I care about is the fact that I will be walking on both feet by June 6th going to Alaska to fish and I want to catch some big ones.

OLDMOM hope you are doing OK.

Thanks OLDMOM yes the DR thinks that two of my MS pills can cause black outs so seeing if this works he took me off of them. And my blood pressure also is doing really good with out it. I was much heavier when they put me on blood pressure so now that I have lost so much weight maybe my blood pressure is better and with out ills. Have to watch it every day but so far doing great.

Oh my- that was a check of a trip. Sounds like you are on the mend. Did you find out why you blacked out? Other then that, was the concert fun?

I am writing from my kindle because my lap top is in the shop. I will keep this short. It takes to long to not have a regular key board. Take care marnie

Good morning my friends. Well I went home on the 27th to see my sister and to go to a concert on Saturday the 28th. Well in the 27th Friday evening was visiting with my sister and got up feeling hot was going to go outside and on the way past out when the dust settled I had the ambulance and paramedics all around me I was taken to the hospital the emergency room x-rayed me I broke the tibia and the fibia on right leg. they put me in the hospital had surgery the next morning they put a titanium rod from knee to ankle and some screws. I spent a week or so at my sisters then a friend drove me back over the mountain and here I am. They put this 5 pound boot on me. Is sore and hard to get around but when I do move around feel like I have been in a marathon LOL have to use a walker. Hope you all are doing ok with as little problems as you can.

I think what saves me is recognizing what is going on. Sometimes it takes a bit to figure it out, but once I do, I work on the problem.

I do use a chair whenever I go to most stores now. It is just not worth the energy to walk around big stores. Granted, many are not wheelchair friendly. Macy's is terrible. If you stay in the main walk way you are fine, but if you need to get in-between racks, forget it. I do not usually go shopping by myself, so that helps. I like Catherines, it is small and I use my canes there. They also give me much help. They are great.

Being around others does put you in the position to be less of a hermit. It also helps with the depression. Hope it is going well.

I am sorry OLDMOM I know that depression is a problem with MS it gets to me also and I get into a bad state. As you know when it is happening, for me it can be one word someone says and sets it off I get real quiet and pull away from people. It is harder for me to do it here which is a good thing I guess but the older I get the more I tend to catch myself and try to not go there but it is hard I know. Sorry you have to use a walker but they do help other wise you would be in a chair. You have to keep using your legs and keep your muscles as strong as you can.

Back at you, Romeo went to work with all of his green on. He made messes in the kindergarten class room. The kids think the leprechauns do the naughty deed. He enjoys it so much.

I did not leave the house today. I have figured that I am a bit of a depression. Need to get my act together. Legs are so bad I need a walker most of the time in the house. I finally put 2 and 2 together and was writing about it to my friends on FB. The whole time I was typing, I was crying. Go figure. Now that I know it is happening I can work with it and get my butt moving to get over it.

It is raining like we live in the Willamette Valley. Damp, damp, damp....

I am glad Romeo is a good guy because I could not live by myself and I love my kids but I would not want to live with them. I know I would drive them crazy and they would drive me crazy. I know it is a short trip but hope I do not have to do that for a very long time.

Hope things get better for you.

hit it on the nail I will only be 67 in June and I sold my house did not get enough to re buy so I am in that position. I had to leave my beloved Central Oregon and move to Lake Oswego OR hate it here lived in West Portland for 37 years in bad marriage got to go back home for 7 years. Get to go home when ever I want but would rather be there all the time guess life never lets you do what you want at least not for me. Love the coast

I am assuming you are living with a child of yours and his/her family. That can be hard when you are still young. Mom was 69 when she moved in with me and it was hard for her also.

I do miss being able to go to the coast whenever the spirit moved me. We used to live about an hour from Newport. Now we would have to travel 10 hours. Sigh!

Went to Joanns to day to get some material to make some purses/bags and a couple blankets. Next will be some bibs.

Tomorrow will be grocery shopping. It is suppose to rain, so it will be dreary, dang, I wanted to get some work done on our raised beds. Oh well!

Hope things are good for all.

Hi Marna,

Made it to the Y 2 times this week. Have to make sure I do not overdo on the legs. I still need to drive home and I do not have the hand gears.

Did not do much else but with the sun out, I am feeling fine.

No school for the kids tomorrow and I get to sleep in. I will also head back to JoAnn's to use my 25% off entire purchase. This includes sale items. I hope I get enough sales to make it worth my while.

Good evening to all -

Cold but clear here. It is suppose to warm up to the low 60's by next week. That will be nice.

Went to the pool today and worked on my arms which also works my abs. Why does my lower back hurt so bad when my abs get a work out. I am going to keep it up though and just pay attention to my pelvic region and make sure it is tucked in.

I need to check out what goes in my mouth. I need to stop eating sugar. There are other things I need to stop eating but one thing at a time.

Lots to do tomorrow, hope everyone is having a great evening.

Hi girls, Vicki, pain can be bad. I do not think my pain is as bad as most. I just have to go slow.

Maney, that is terrible that you cannot find a doctor. You are in Portland, right. Have you tried the Oregon state medical thingy up on the hill? I can't remember the full name of it.

Today, I was quite busy and I am having a hard time keeping my eyes open. I took the car in for an oil change and some 30,000 mile maintenance. I sat for almost 2 hours. I then went to the store for a Friday special. I found more then I thought was on sale and my lap became full quickly. After I picked up some bacon, I asked the produce guy if he or someone could get a couple bags of potatoes for me and get them to the cashier. He said he was glad to help and got the potatoes and met me at the front. He then bagged up the rest of the groceries and took them to my car for me. It was a nice day. I then finished paying bills, picked up husbands check and took it to the bank.
I need to sleep. I wish I had more energy. I need to quit whining and just be happy. OK! I am happy and will quit whining because I have no cheese. LOL! Hope things are good tomorrow.

Hi Vickie, WV wow my daughter lives NC she sent me a picture and the snow man my grand daughter made was as big as she was LOL they don't normally get snow there.

You said you were monitoring your pain is it when you eat your stomach or a different area? I am sorry you have to deal with that I am lucky right now I have had no problems with the MS and am so glad I do not even have a DR up here mine is back in Central OR I can see who ever where ever with my insurance but I have called at least four different places and they do not want medicare this has been going on or about 7 months have to find someone up here just don't want to lose my DR over there he is very good but in winter can't make it over the pass because of snow. Hope you figure out your pain problem but sounds like you are doing it in a very system matic way not sure if I said that right.

Good morning😊 or afternoon I should say. I'm having a good day. I hope you are too. I've been monitoring what I'm eating to see if certain items make my pain worse. I'm finding that things like a Blizzard :) seem to make it worse. I'm charting my pain level each day and what I eat. We've been snowed in here in southern WV so I've only been to PT twice but been more active in house. How's weather in your area? Do you exercise at home? Gym? Other?

OLDMOM so sorry that it is so difficult for you to get around. I know it is very hard to make our selves get out there I am like you about the exercising and I don't have near your reasons at this point but sometimes it is hard to make myself get going. I belong to a place and am not using it near enough. I am a procrastinator too very much so. I don't know some how someone or maybe I did it made a different page and messages were coming on it instead of this page I wasn't getting them either but since I can't delete it think have it straightened out as best as I could. Money is tough right now for everyone well most everyone so hang in there. Keep up the walking you did great!!! emoticon

Good morning Marney -

I went out and splurged $15 and bought a wireless keyboard for my labtop. As my kids would say, it is quite qhetto, but it works and it was much cheaper. Got on the scales and I have gained most back and need to get moving. The Doc says I have osteopenia and I need to take calcium and I am not sure my budget can handle it. Doing weight bearing exercises with my legs are mostly impossible. Sigh! I try to go to the pool 2 times a week but fail miserably. I should have gone today but felt my chest was acting up since I am still recovering from a flu like illness. I did go for a walk. Put my braces on, took my walker down the steps and walked almost 4 blocks. It took me 20 min. but I did do it. I will work on it daily. I am such a procrastinator, I need to be pushed, I am so lazy.

When I see someone post on my email. I am more likely to visit and read and now post. You will be my savior Marney and anyone else that comes. I did have a problem for a while that nothing would post to my email. They must have fixed that .

Hope you all have a great day also.

Yes the relapse will add the weight which makes it rough. Yes it is hard when you have to retire and face the fact you can't work was heart breaking for me I worked about 12 years after finding out I had MS but everything finally caught up with me. Exercise is the best I joined a gym and that has been very good for me I have to laugh at myself though when I take a yoga class because the balance is not there and I am all over the place but I try LOL.

I am glad you got your degree I remember way back you were going to school. Take care and never give up on the weight.

Haven't been on many sites. I really spend way too much time on the cp. Sorry, I have been away. My laptop keyboard quite the a, b, n, 7, and enter sign. Really hard to type without those letters. It is 85 plus tx to have it fixed. I finally pay 16 for a wifi keyboard. It is kind of ghetto, doing it this way but hey, I am cheap. emoticon

I have been sick the past week, not knock down sick just enough to make me very tired. I went out yesterday for a bit and also today but still need to keep resting.

Weight is same old, same old. Loose and gain, gain and loose. I need to get my but in gear and get moving.

On a happy note, it is sunny outside and I think we are going to have flowers before the Midwest this year.

I'm doing ok. I've had some life changes too. I had to retire in May 2014. I took disability retirement and disability SS. I did not plan to do this. I finished my PhD in Aug 2012 and had major relapse end of Aug 2012. I worked last year, reading specialist, with a lot of adaptations by my co-workers. A great group of people. its taken me 9 months to accept that I'm retired but, I have. I've gained a good bit of weight after relapse and am having trouble getting it off. Also, back problems. But, everything considered, I'm good. Hubby and I trying to exercise and eat healthier. How are you doing? emoticon

Good afternoon everyone I hope that everyone is doing OK. Not much going on around my life I sure hope that you all are as healthy as you can be and life is treating you all ok. I am not sure what to do with my group as there is no group most have gone on to an other group guess I am not pushy enough to hold on to people. Any way I will be here I am trying to check in more to see if anything is going on but guess what people I had were coxed to other groups.

I just saw this old post. I put a an under each leg of my craft table to make it taller and then made a skirt for it to hide the cans. It also hid stuff I stored under it. I used paint cans because that's what I had available. 😊👍

Hi OLDMOM sorry I missed your message I have been broken down and just now got back on the computer. I had to sell my house and didn't make enough so had to move to Portland and live with my daughter. I love to be able to see my grandson all the time but I miss my home and Central Oregon. It rains so much here I hate the rain and I am in this tiny little bedroom . I had to sell most of my life away it seems never thought that would happen to me at only 66 but it did. I never really know what to do here so sometimes I just go to my room and hide. Sounds like I am feeling sorry for myself yea guess so.

Are you still working or are you totally retired? Portland is a very nice city as big cities go. I hope things are less worry some for you.

My laptop does not let me type some letters and the enter key. Very hard to send back responses. I am at my desktop right now.

I had to send back the Bioness thing for my leg. It seemed to make my leg more spastic and I now have trouble bending it when I walk. Sigh!

Just got off a cleanse and that worked very well. I just need to eat right from now on. Hang in there and I will try to post more often.

Hi everyone so sorry I have been off so long my world as I know it has turned up side down and over again. I sold my house so fast I thought the spin would never stop. I had to fight with the other Realtor she was a witch and caused so many problems that I thought I would fall apart actually I did more than once if it had not been for my sister I would have never made it through. The had to be out of the house so fast could not afford a apartment or anything so I am now in Portland Oregon I am living with my daughter and her. They are going to build a one room in the back of there place they have a very long back yard. I am paying for it but in the end this has taken all the pressure off of me that I have been living under for so long. Trouble is it has taken its tool on me and I have been sick and know something is building in me. But I sure hope to see some of you back I do miss everyone I really do.

My insurance I going to pay for 80%. They will only do it on a 13 month rental, which brings the cost up a couple thousand in total. If paid all at once it would be $6300, but with rental it will total $8775. I would save $495 if we paid. I do understand their point of view and I am not. I get it set up on the 20th. I will let you know what happens.

Dear OLDMOMTO5, I will pray that you are able to get the foot drop system and that it works so you can be more mobile. Don't beat yourself over the weight gain. I just came off my third steroid taper since January and had gained some of what I had worked so hard to lose back as well. We'll get there as long as we don't give up! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I am having problems with my weight, as usual. Winter has knocked me for a loop. I am back up to 221.5 and sick of myself

I went for another MRI yesterday. Need to find out if my lower back is causing some of my walking problems. I also have been approved to get the Bioness food drop system. I hope it works. Insurance will pay for 80% but only on a rental basis. If it works, I might be able to do a bit more walking and get my butt moving more. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Hope everyone is staying warm and safe.

OLDMOM I totally understand wow that would be rough. I am finishing up today the last blanket for grandkids and then I hope to get them in the mail today or tomorrow. The ones that go to NC my daughter has them wait till I get there so they do not have to be there before Christmas but still makes me nervous. I sure hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and OLDMOM take care of yourself ok.

Glad the Tecfidera is working for you. I am totally paranoid of any drugs. I do take 2 but it took me a year to get it through my head that they would not send me into an allergic coma. I have had way too many reactions to drugs.
I have been busy, busy, busy....ALmost ready for Christmas.

OLDMOM so good to hear from you. I am so sorry you are having trouble with your balance. The wheel chair sounds the best thing for the outside for you right now. You are a very strong and determined woman you just keep up the fight.

I am on Tecfidera now have been for about 6 months love love it. No side effects like the copaxone and no needles is great. They call every few months and ask questions to make sure all is well.

Thanks FAITH I am now trying to go a little slower so I will be strong for the trip. You and OLDMOM take care. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

It was nice to see a post in my email.

I have been very busy, and for some reason, I am not taking naps. Hmmmm..... That is a good thing though.

Back in August, I missed a step and fell outside. Broke the base of the bone, but did not displace it. Phew! I now take the steps slower and 6hang on to the railing instead of relying on my canes. A couple months later, I fell again, this time inside the house. Dr was surprised I did not break a hip. I landed hard on my left hip. Walking has gone straight to h e double hockey sticks. Since then, I have been using my wheel chair when ever I am out and about. At home, I have been using my walker more often.

I am sewing pj's for the grandkids, the hard part is cutting the patterns out. My table needs to be about 4 - 6 inches higher. It would save my back if I had that but not sure if they make sewing tables that tall.

I do not if any of you have seen the plank challenge on facebook. I decided to try it and I was able to do 100 seconds. I just keep plugging away.

Enjoy your holiday with your daughter and grandbaby!

And, take care of yourself. It's good that you can help your sister, but, if you wear yourself down too much, you won't be able to be of any assistance to her, and, someone might have to help you!

Here's a prayer that we'll both feel better soon!

Hope you are feeling better FAITH. I have been pretty sick but now on the mends wore my self down to letting anything get to me. I had Surgery now a month ago the next week my sister had surgery I stayed and took care of her for a week up every four hours for her meds and taking care of the site she had the surgery on. I was exhausted by the time I got home but I went and worked everyday for the next 7 days and that is when it all hit me wow did it ever.

I have been having computer problems and I know I have to get a new one but it is going to have to wait it can get in line LOL.

I leave on the 27th to NC to see my daughter and grand baby's I am excited to see them, know I will be very tired on the way home.

On prednisone for a flare right now. I created a prednisone diet that's working for me. I wrote about it here:

Good idea, MARNA, to talk to them to be sure. When you are this close, you don't want to do anything to mess things up.

I hope your time goes by quickly, MARNA. Are you close to 66?

I'm grateful that I receive SSDI, and my husband is still working. My SSDI is enough to replace the part time income that I used to be earning, so our income has not declined.

However, about 10 years ago, we had to refinance our home, due to high medical bills that our insurance didn't cover. So, we're still working on paying that off. Should be paid off before retirement, though.
