My life lately has been focused a lot on MS. I’m not happy when this happens as it is a reminder that ‘winter is coming’. I like to think of myself as a normal person, but the reality is that I’m not. I am a man struggling against the creeping symptoms of multiple sclerosis and the symptoms are getting worse. I hate admitting that fact.
This week I struggled mightily with fatigue. I went to bed early most nights, but seemed to run out of steam around 3:00 in the afternoon every day. I think it might be time to introduce some new natural supplements into the diet. Or battle it out until the heat and humidity give way to the cooler temperatures of the fall. I can see me eventually needing to live somewhere with much milder temps.
On a positive note, Evelina found out Monday that she passed her BAR exam. She is excited and is now making plans for her future. Surprisingly, she has changed her focus and will be working in the field of real estate law. She will begin preparing for her real estate exam which she’ll take this fall. From one exam to the next!
I was able to play a little golf yesterday which was fun, but ran out of energy around the 13th hole. It was so hot. Our temperatures have been in the mid-to-high 90’s with 98% humidity for a couple of weeks now. I don’t care where you live in the United States, the heat in the south is simply different. You can’t breathe. The air doesn’t move. There’s no wind. It is hot. It is humid. And it is awful. Sorry about that rant. Golf was fun. I played with a friend of mine who works for a local county government overseeing their tourism. We had fun and I shot 77 which isn’t completely terrible. I did have 2 double bogeys on the back nine which did me in.
Today Evelina and I will be going to the park with Bentley Boy so he can run around and have fun. Although it’s hot, he deserves some free time to play and smell other dogs. It’s good for his psyche to spend time around other puppies and play. He is the sweetest dog on the planet. I love how he looks at us.
That is our week in a nutshell. I want to say a hearty thank you to everyone for putting up with me during my partial absence and I’ll be back to full speed blogging in a couple of weeks. Until then I hope you folks have a great weekend!!
