I just love bank holidays. I love knowing that I have an extra day off and can spend it anyway I choose.
So today has been a productive day so far. I did some Reiki on myself this morning, followed by a late breakie. Then I decided to tackle the ironing, did you ever notice how much it grows 🙂 I then decided that I would try to give my deck a bit a sweep with a hard brush and pull some weeds.
So now it is all done, I am delighted at my accomplishments but a little bit frustrated with my health. It is always my legs, they limit me (thankfully they are not progressing) they don’t like standing or pressure on them for a long time. So by the end of the weeding I was using the wall for support at times. Why am I saying this, I suppose to make people more aware of how MS can affect me in my normal life. I may have slowed down my progression but I still have to learn to deal with the residual symptoms. What this means for me is that I am sitting down now, on the laptop or watching telly or reading, you just have to listen to your body, do so much and then take a break. Thankfully the break is all I need, a rest is like a re-boot to my legs.. The will soon be back working again..
Do you have any tricks or ways to manage your MS? How do you cope with the damage that has already been done?
