Walk it Off – MS

Today is Walk MS in my area… a time for MS supporter and sufferers to come together to fight MS with a fundraiser Walk… they walk a mile, eat some lunch, and purchase some Multiple Sclerosis shirts…

lol… my zombie walk has gotten a lot better but I still have my off days… most of those walking are sturdy on their feet… to participate, you don’t have to actually walk, if you can’t… I have been virtually walking for the last month… (though no one has chosen to donate on my MS page… I was still able to show my support)

next year, plan how you can support MS… donations, walk/bike, or blog until you can’t blog no more… ­čśŤ

I have never had anyone say this to me… and I never say it to myself… be sure that you never say it either (to yourself or to others) … each and every day, do what you can… whether it is for something like Walk MS or in day to day tasks… I can’t walk this year, and I have found a way to make myself feel like I am contributing… I would love to actually walk but that just isn’t some that I CAN do…

and the walker are off….

Animal House…

puppies are sooooo dang cute… and I have to say I have never seen a cat be that tolerant… for the most part my two pugs and one kitty love each other… but they also stay out of each others way… (like I said… for the most part… lol) the pugs give Ellie her way, and she keeps her claws to herself…

but what in the world does this have to do with Multiple Sclerosis???

they are my motivation to get up in the mornings… to keep going when I just want to crawl under the covers and forget for a while… even your doctor will tell you that a pet can help with various health issues… lower your blood pressure, keep you calm, stabilize anxiety… and that is your average pet, not an animal trained to help with blindness, seizures, or various traumas…

my animals get me out of bed, make me smile and brighten my day… they need me and I need them…

I love my mother and she is my number one support, but my animals give me that spark for life when things look bleak… personally, I think that everyone should have a pet… no matter if you have an illness or not… and especially as we get older… I have seen more than one of my grandparents light up after getting an animal of their very own.. even the ones that swore that they never wanted another…

so if you don’t have a pet, and want to save money… go to your local shelter and see which one speaks to you… or if you want one of the breeds, save up and get you fur-baby as soon as possible… they are a lot of work, but worth every minute…

living with MS has been a lot easier with my fur-babies by my side…

bring on the funny…

ms 2

LOL… okay… that gif has nothing to do with MS…but with four days until the big Walk MS event, it thought we could use some funny… that is what living with multiple sclerosis is all about… finding the humor in our lives where and when we can…

you have to enjoy every minute that you can, and get through the moments that bring on pain/doubt… and always remember those funny moments, while looking forward to the next humorous event… that is what happens with my mother around… she and I have similar funny bones…and can always make each other laugh…

Mom likes to say that between the two of us, we almost have one functioning┬ábrain… lol… and it sadly sooooo very true…

the other day…. okay three days ago… mom and I were chatting away… and when I┬áopened my mouth to comment I completely forgot one of my words… I knew how to describe it (like a combo of football and soccer but scary┬áviolent)… sadly she didn’t know what I was talking about… but three days later, I’m not even thinking about our conversation when out of the blue ‘rugby’ pops into my head… I guess my process was slow… ­čśŤ

mom forgets stuff all the time too, but she lets it get to her, stating that it is a sign of old age… but I┬ájust say ‘that’s life’… but in a nod to her distaste for getting older, I have promised to visit her with a new┬ápurse every day (new to her forgetfulness) I will save money and she will always enjoy a new present…

all joking aside… forgetting things can be scary… and is not something to laugh about unless the person you are joking with also thinks it is funny…

anywho… three more posts and the Walk is on…

Hear, Hear… Me!!!

alrighty… this is the last day of MS Month… but not to worry, because my virtual walk for MS continues… muhahahaha…. until april 10th when things will go back to normal … ­čśŤ whatever the heck normal is… but the posts will continue to flow…

Hear, Hear!! lol… this is soooo a problem… mom (my biggest supporter) gets aggravated with me, thinking that I am mumbling on purpose… but the words just seem heavy, hard to push out… sometimes I am just soooo exhausted, talking seems like a hassle…

As for the drive-thru problem??? lol… you should try to order something while you are up north (when you have a southern twang, and tend to speak quietly)… I just wanted some fries… you know, those things made from potatoes…

I swear the girl said ‘what?’ like a million times…

it all started off calmly… “a large fry please”┬á… but apparently I have the same issues with pronouncing Fry as I do Ice… (those dang I’s get me every time) …

after repeating myself, attempting to clarify the pronunciation, and finally screaming my order as loudly as possible, I was reduced to sarcasm… sure, most people would have given up and driven to a different restaurant… but I highly doubted that the next drive-thru would be any better… while visiting the beautiful New England States, Kentucky gals should stick to sit down restaurants where they can point at their meal choices… HA!!!

Okay… so I was stubborn and fed up… I started screaming “POM FRITZ, FRENCH FRIES, DEEP FRIED POTATO SLICES….” ….

not my finest moment!!!
