About a year ago I had just started on the long journey to recovering from the virus that nearly knocked me out. I’m happy to say that since then things have being going much better for me, I have shed 1 powered scooter, an AFO, a KAFO, a cane, 50 pounds, and an unhealthy lifestyle that was taking me in the wrong direction.
Meals were made up of mostly processed foods from cans and boxes and usually consisted of noodles with cheese and some bread, whatever was quick and easy. These days each meal is freshly made and includes great locally grown veggies as well as locally raised beef, pork and chicken. Sometimes I wish I could just microwave some nuggets and eat but really with a little planning eating healthy isn’t too tough at all, not to mention when dinner is served it is delicious!
It’s hard to believe that it has only been a year since that terrible time in my life. It seems as if it happened years ago or in a different life even? As I look back on being sick of course I’m happy that it has passed and that I’m doing so much better but I’m thankful for the change in direction it gave me. Along the way I have met many great people because of my MS including doctors, therapists, yogis and many other Msers and together we’ve put up quite a fight!
This school year I am trying my hardest to avoid getting sick, so far I have fought off a nasty cold using just my Vitamix and persistence. Hopefully I can keep healthy which is not a simple task when you’re surrounded by 500 smiling, sneezing elementary school students!
