Things have changed drastically for me in the past six weeks. After contracting some sort of mono-like virus my life has begun to take on a new look. Gone are the days of zipping around the grocery store or taking the spot at the far reaches of the parking lot because “it’s only 15 seconds farther away.” I’m now walking so slowly with my cane that the World War II vets are asking me “Do you need help?”
It has been more than six weeks since my run in with the virus and my return to “normal” is taking much longer than it has in the past, so I’m now asking myself “is this my new normal?” If so it is going to take some getting used to. At my last neuro appointment my doc filled out the paperwork for a handicap parking pass and recommended that I not work until the New Year. After doing the timed walk that took a grand total of 30 seconds I needed to sit in a chair to catch my breath before heading into the exam room.
All of this is coming pretty fast and is all very overwhelming to me, so I’m asking you my fellow MSers “What do I need to do to keep from getting down on myself and remain positive?” “How do I end my current streak of bad news?”
