Wheelchair?

disability-is-not-inability-700x280

Wheelchair.

Not a dirty word.

Or a scary word.

Or a tool for lazy people.

It’s much more, and means even more to those having found their freedom again.

Waking up during the night with a funny, tingling feeling in one of my legs. Thinking nothing of it, I go back to bed. Continue reading

Types of MS

Doctors divide the symptoms into three groups: primary, secondary, and tertiary.

Primary symptoms come from damage to the protective sheath around the nerves in your spine or brain. The damage is called demyelination. It causes scarring, which makes it harder for signals to travel between the brain and the body.

This process can lead to bladder or bowel problems, loss of balance, numbness, paralysis, tingling, tremors, vision problems, or weakness. Medicine, rehabilitation, and other treatments can keep many of these problems under control. Continue reading

Wonder Woman Syndrome

pace-yourself2I’ve done it again. Minus the suit, mind you.

Rhetoric aside, picking my battles wisely is not something I do easily. Not only that, changing your lifestyle and striving for quality of life is not as easy as it sounds. It’s as much a mental, emotional and physical struggle to sustain quality of life. Continue reading

Kids? Not right now, please…

Children and multiple sclerosis? Although life was good in my last relationship, I secretly decided that having children would probably not be on my list of things to do. Not because of the lack of love, but because I didn’t want to pass on my illness to my future son or daughter. When we eventually talked about possibly mixing my illness with his screaming babies and hectic lifestyle, I realised that in quiet, I made the right decision.

Being broody comes with being female, and despite my decision, I still get broody sometimes. If it wasn’t for MS, I absolutely would’ve wanted children. One of the few nice things about being chronically ill and being childless is however, when looking after children of friends and family, you can give their children back at night. I get to go back to my own cool, dark bedroom in my quiet house, and I have my broodiness resolved for a while. Continue reading

In a while!

A new post will be published here before Friday. Warm weather and a family visit joined my MS relapse which means time has been filled with lots of rest and relaxation. Looking forward now to writing again!

The social swing of life

social-mediaLife isn’t viewed through our own two eyes anymore. We now let a smartphone be the first witness of things happening around us. We learn about other people’s lives, not by talking to, or observing them from a sun-drenched patio with a cool drink in front of us. Instead, we check out our friends’ Facebook pages and read their blogs. Direct communication seems a thing of the past. Continue reading
