Fatigue, being a very common symptom of MS, has landed.
This past year I noticed a major decrease in my energy levels. Then once March hit it made sense that it was due to my immune system eating away at my nervous system.
But the fatigue level hadnt really set this low until this past week.
Perhaps its due to the fact that this is the longest since being diagnosed I havent been in a hospital (fingers crossed no more for a while!!!). And that the adrenalin level of hospitalness has just decreased.
Or it could be that my body is rebuilding and healing!! Positive thinking!
Whatever it is, I have had a very sleepy week. Hence, so has Sputnik (my puppy…isnt he adorable?).
Its been challenging, and I have expressed this prior, to go from a life of “I’ll sleep when Im dead…let’s go!” to “If I dont sleep I’ll be dead”. Dramatic maybe but challenging none the less.
Doesnt MS know its really hard to sparkle when youre in bed all day?
For just a little motivation:
Oscar Pistorious, the first double-amputee to compete in the Olympic games ever, might not have advanced to the finals, but hes won my heart. And given me another reason to hope.
No calves? No problem. Olympics, bring it.
MS? No problem (ok maybe some but we’ll get manage :D). Life, bring it.
