My Daily Observation: 10/19/17

Danny

Today is my appointment with my neurologist who is going to give me a couple new alternatives for medication.  I’m not thrilled at the idea of taking medicine again and I’m not looking forward to any injections.  I have been on 2 injections in the past and both of the medications made me annoyed with taking a shot.

For those of you who are new to my page, I live with secondary progressive Multiple Sclerosis.  SPMS means my symptoms are present daily and no longer come and go.  My most bothersome symptom is fatigue and hand/hip/foot pain.  I’ll let you guys know how my appointment goes.

Different people handle illness differently.  If you are living with some type of illness I want to say “Keep you chin up.”  I know it can be difficult sometimes, but it isn’t the end of the world and as long as you have breathe in your body, then keep on keepin’ on!  Vent to friends and family when you need to vent.  Scream when you need to scream.  Cry when you need to cry.  Don’t hold all that stuff in trying to be tough because it’s like poison and will build up inside you; let it out.

That’s my two cents for today.  Hope everyone has a great Thursday!

  1. Thank you for your blog. You inspire me to keep going. I met w my oncologist Monday. I had stopped my preventative meds about three months ago. What I didn’t u der stand was doing so opened the door for the Cancer to attach itself to other parts of my body. I had no idea. I have cowden syndrome which causes multiple types of cancer so this decision wasn’t my best. She prescribed a new med. I’m reluctant but like you said I still have a breath in my body. I am scheduled for a bone scan. There’s a concern the pain I have been experiencing is bone cancer. I sympathize w your pain. I too live with pain throughout my body. Thank you for sharing your journey. You inspire me as well as others to keep on keeping on. I pray for your healing.
