Dear Friends, I must let you know that I got over my little bit of yesterday’s paranoia, and that is why I do continue to take my psych meds, and to trust the kind physicians who care for me.
After having a bit of digestive unrest and subsequent increased anxiety, I’ve been relieved just not to be thinking of my brain health, or my nervous system much at all really. Well, I do think obout my nerves, but right now I’m overly concerned with how my body accepts nutrients, metabolizes energy, and just does that business of living without too many complaints.
I’m jumping back on the exercise train, and did the treadmill for seventeen minutes today, loving every bit of it. My feet didn’t end up numb (thank you, shoes) and I just felt so much better for having somewhat of a challenge, breathing in extra air, and using my muscle and balance power to the max. Granted, I should increase that treadmill time, but I’m thankful for every little bit I can get. Having MS for twenty years does make a person thankful for ordinary things, and that I tuly am. I know it could be so much worse, so I’m thankful for every day I’ve got.
The emotional woes of MS have not been simple for me, though, as you may have noticed from yesterday’s paranoia. The depression pert neat to have killed me in the past, but my antidepressant in conjunction with my interferon MS medicine is keeping me on an even keel. Thank you, modernity, treatments, and the kindness of professional healers.
In appreciation of modern medicine, it does behoove me to pray for physicians and therapists, and for those who are sick, and for all of us to be okay.
My goal for tomorrow is to finish reading my current book, The Dutch House by Ann Patchett. It’s been so good, I hate to leave! I will also do laundry, watch church online, pray, meditate, exercise again, and clip my fingernails. You’ve got to have plans. I hope also to cook some eggs and eat them, yum, yum.
Wishing everyone the best weekend conclusion tomorrow, and a fine week ahead.
