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.

Anyone who is an addict (or recovering addict) also knows this. Addiction is a state of total control. It is a state of tyranny.

Addiction the authoritarian. Withoutregard for the rules. Without regard for the law. Criminal, robbing us of dignity, soul thieving, murderous.

Addiction the authoritarian. Scapegoating the marginalized, placing blame on others, without responsibility.

Addiction the authoritarian. Fear mongering, divisive, spitting hateful opioid-filled words, inciter of self-loathing and shame.

Addiction the authoritarian. Master of our universe, strong man, ruling by opiate executive order and heroiniron fist.

Addiction the authoritarian. Incessant deceiver, pathological liar, and master manipulator. Spinning silken lies as we nod-out in a web of obliteration.

Addiction the authoritarian…

I am in some need of some organizational skills for my blogging. I would greatly appreciate the help or advice on how others stay on track. it seems like I was going along  just fine and then life happen and it just seems like my concentration and  motivation just went to the waste side.

I have a calendar especially for blogging but it doesn’t  quite work if I put things in it. So I ask if any of you use a calendar and if so how do you use it?

Thank in advance my friends!!…
