Lately my health care journey has been rather trying. I was bedridden for a few weeks and lost all of the physical progress I had worked so hard for over the summer. When summer ended I was able to walk cane free for up to 20 minutes with no problem, these days I am lucky to make it more than 5 minutes without having to stop and sit down to catch my breath and huff and puff for a minute.
Rather than getting down on myself I’m choosing to be proactive, remain positive and go for it. Instead of focusing on what I can’t do, I’m locked onto what I can do. I can’t walk around the block but I can go for 10 minutes on the Nu-Step at therapy. I can't keep my energy up, but can change my diet and see if I can’t take control of it. I am unable to tune into my body and keep my mind calm, but I am able to go to yoga and work at improving the connection.
You have MS do whatever it takes to make sure it (MS) knows that you are in charge! Choose to be proactive, look around on the site and find a resource that will benefit you. Join a support group or find an event you can attend and team up in your fight.
Believing you can do something and getting out there and doing it are the two best things you can do today.
