Unfortunately I need to go see my neurologist. I have noticed over the last few weeks that my symptoms are flaring up much more than usual. This usually means a new lesion is causing an exacerbation. When this occurs my limbs experience more pain than normal, which is incredibly uncomfortable.
Right now I am experiencing lightning flash pains in my legs that take my breathe away at times. Also, I have been losing feeling in my left hand, which is a brand new symptom for me. I’ve had hand pain in the past, but I’ve never experienced numbness. The most annoying symptom is the return of the headaches. I don’t want to go back on meds, but I also don’t want to burden Evelina with my constant complaining about the pain.
When I met Greg I was in no way looking for anything. I was happy with my life the way it was. Just my kids and I. I loved my job and spent my off days working in the yard or on some project in the house.
I wasn’t against love or believed it was something that couldn’t happen to me. I just didn’t need a man to be happy. I was content with the way things were.
Greg is one of the most unique men I have ever met. I’ve never known a man so accepting of others. Although he may not agree. He never judges anyone. From the day I met him I felt I could tell him anything. I was totally comfortable. It was easy as if I had known him for years.
Last night was a rough night. I was in tremendous pain. Getting comfortable at night these days is almost impossible. The pain and stiffness in my legs have made finding a position to sleep almost zero. When I do finally fall asleep I toss and turn. Between the pain and tossing and turning I only get an average of two to three hours of sleep a night. I’m up usually by 1 am unable to go back to sleep.
That’s not what this post is about though. I’ve become kind of used to this nightly process.
This morning I thought to myself poor Greg! It doesn’t only affect me. It affects his sleep and his day as well.
I toss and turn not only moving the entire bed but most of the time I am unable to turn myself. This means I have to grab him and even wake him…
