The Pink Herald's Blog

I have been steadily changing my diet over the last couple weeks.  I will have to say, I actually feel a lot better.  To some, the dietary changes may be extreme.  I believe it’s easier for me, from all the other attempts at dietary changes, because my life literally depends on me being successful.

There have been two times I have “cheated”.  They have been small cheats such as eating soy sauce (has gluten) and I forgot the other cheat.  Anyway, since my body has been eating healthier, it really didn’t care for my choice to upset its new-found balance.  I have done those cheats before, but this time the reaction was stronger.  I have dedicated myself to not doing that again.  I really don’t like the reactions I had and repeat performances won’t be necessary.

I am using my new juicer at least every other day.  I am loving…

Danny’s World: MS Can’t Hold Me Down-Obstacles Are Designed To Be Overcome

I know a lot of my readers suffer from chronic pain and I try to be an example of how to fight back.  Today I went for a quick walk.  I didn’t want to and my body yelled at me every step of the way, but I know I have to do it.  I look at exercise like this…if I don’t force my body to move, then MS wins.  I know a lot of you don’t exercise because you have told me so.  You have said it hurts too bad.  You have said you are too tired.  I get it.

I almost had to call Evelina to come and get me, but I didn’t.  I willed myself to finish what I started because in the long run it will benefit me more than sitting around doing nothing.  Do you think I want to?  No, I would rather sit and do nothing.

To those who tell me they cannot I would challenge you to begin thinking about what you can do instead of what you cannot do.  If you can only walk to the end of the driveway then do so.  If you can do arm lifts from your chair, then do so.  If you can swim in the pool, then do so.  Do what you can do, but don’t settle for doing nothing.

And it begins by putting one foot in front of the other.

Do I Know You

After an 11 day stay in the hospital, numerous MRI’s, every test known to man, and a lumbar puncture I was finally able to go home.

I was still having difficulty walking. Every step was like the first. I imagined this being what a baby felt like taking his/her first steps. I was actually telling myself ok leg move forward. As if telling my leg would make it go. I could take a couple steps and stop. My brain just not able to make a connection with my body. I walked sideways and backwards. I was happy just to move but I wondered if I would ever make it to my destination. Which was only about 20 steps to the restroom.

My hands were much the same. Shaking and forget picking anything up or holding it. At times my hands were stuck or drawn up. Eating or doing anything with…
