Halfway there!

Fightmsdaily

The great thing about Wednesday is it means we are halfway through the week and only have the other half to make it through before the weekend returns! Of course, I understand the first half of the week may have been challenging, but the last part of the week will be much easier, or at least that is what I keep telling myself😊. The power of the mind is a powerful thing, so if we believe hard enough, maybe we can believe it into reality😊!

I know I mentioned earlier that I took Friday off from work for my birthday! I found out yesterday that we are going to be working 10-hour days for the rest of the week. I think it was pure luck I decided to not work on my birthday because working for 10 long hours on my birthday would have been awful!!!! My workday on Monday…

Tranquil Tuesday

Fightmsdaily

Monday has come and gone, so hopefully, Tuesday will be much easier. For some reason, Mondays are always chaotic and dreaded. Yesterday was a mixture of good and bad, but nonetheless, I am glad it is over. The one thing that yesterday taught me is we always need to stand up for ourselves and never allow anyone to mistreat us, which means we can politely defend ourselves when someone speaks negative and ugly words to us.

Although we did survive Monday, we do still have a few more days to get through until the weekend returns again. I think not just on Tuesday, but every day of the week we need to discover calmness and peacefulness to avoid unnecessary stress. I am hoping the quote that I am sharing with y’all today brings peace and calmness. I do believe that the calmer we can keep our minds, the better we…

Well, ready or not Monday has returned again and without any delays. Our weekend has come and gone by so fast, and we must begin a new week. I hope you had a nice weekend and you are ready to start this week with a positive mindset! This week is going to be a short week for me because I took Friday off for my birthday. Of course, considering it is a day off during the week, I do have something to take care of. I have to take our older cat to the doctor, just for his routine check-up, so it is not a big deal. Unfortunately, he hates being in the car, so the less than a 2-mile drive will cause him a great deal of stress. All I can say is, at least I will not have to work and deal with the work craziness😊!

Human Rights

Fightmsdaily

Abortion has been a controversial issue for decades and long before anyone had heard about Roe. Since June 24, 2022, when Roe vs Wade was overturned, abortion has become an even more heated topic. The views and beliefs of people around the world are plentiful and remain extremely controversial. I understand some of these views fall in line with religious beliefs, which is their right and no one can alter their beliefs. Row vs Wade was a ruling made almost 50 years ago in January of 1973, during a time before things were more progressive. In the past, nearly 50 years have we progressed at all? Are we trying to evolve or are we only consistently devolving?

Thoughts out of the blue

Fightmsdaily

Out of the blue and for no reason at all, I started thinking about a life-altering event I went through. This is not something I dwell on because I have very little control over it and it would be a waste of time to overthink it. It has been more than 20 years since I heard my doctor tell me that I had Multiple Sclerosis. I was still so young, very ignorant of what this meant for my life, and fears of how many challenges I would be forced to endure. Of course, I did hear the words the doctor spoke to me on the day he broke the news to me, but it took me a while to accept what he said to me. I tried my best to fight him and tell him he was wrong, but that was fighting a battle I had no chance of winning…

First Day Of Fall

Happy Friday eve! Today is the first day of my favorite season, Fall or Autumn whichever you prefer to call it! This is typically the season when the temperatures are the most reasonable, they are not too hot and not too cold, they are just perfect. Funny that I am saying that because it seems that Mother Nature did not get the memo or she is having a bad day because the temperatures where I live are going to be 94 degrees. Those are stupid summer temperatures, not cool fall temperatures. I am not sure who made Mother Nature made, but I think they need to apologize because this is not the way to begin my favorite season.

Sleep Deprivation

Fightmsdaily

Sleep is crucial for our overall health and well-being. We do not realize how active our brain is while we sleep as it carries out numerous vital functions. Sleep is imperative to every process in the body. The benefits of sleep include, but are not limited to keeping yourself healthy, possibly helping prevent cancer, reducing stress and inflammation, you will feel more alert, enhancing memory, may help you to lose weight and many more things that are beneficial.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated one in three adults does not get enough sleep. The suggested hours of sleep vastly range depending on an individual’s age, but they do advise adults to get at least seven hours of sleep each night.

Understandably, intermittent disturbances may be an inconvenience, and this does happen to all of us. However, even with that said, it is critical to…

Happy Friday eve, y’all! How has your week been? It seems to have been a long and exhausting week, but as my late Grandfather always said, someone else is always going through something worst. Of course, one reason my week has felt long is because of pain, but the thing about pain is it lets you know that you are still alive. Maybe that is my way of coping with it because I am aware some of the pain I deal with is never going away.

It has been a couple of years, but I mentioned how it felt when we lost our dear sweet cat, Chloe. That kind of pain is emotional and it is awful. Unfortunately, a lady I work with lost her dog yesterday and I know the pain she is suffering, which breaks my heart for her and her family. Physical pain is awful, but I…

Pain Sucks!

It is an undeniable fact that pain for lack of better words sucks! Of course, I, unfortunately, have some form of pain 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, but I somehow manage to deal with it without becoming too homicidal (most of the time at least😊). No matter how frequently we are inflicted with pain, there is typically one kind we find to be unbearable. Do you experience any type of pain that is so miserable, that you would not wish it on your worst enemy?

Of course, the pain that is always present in my mid to lower back is not easy, I can normally ignore it. The neuropathic issues residing in my legs can be a challenge, but I have learned to live with them. Then the issue with what I believe is plantar fasciitis is extremely unpleasant and as much as…

Four coordinated suicide attacks were said to be carried out by the militant Islamic extremist network, al-Qaeda which was following orders from Osama bi Laden to attack the United States of America. These attacks were organized into three groups of five members and another group of four members. Each of the groups included one designated flight-trained hijacker who took control of the aircraft.

Irritating Sounds!

Each person has unique qualities that set them apart from everyone else. These qualities are not something negative or to be ashamed of, but they can create challenges for the person to handle. Since I was a young child there have been certain sounds that I found extremely irritating, which I thought made me strange. It is not loud noises, but small noises such as people chewing gum, chips, popcorn, ice, or anything else that crunches. I remember a time being in the car with my mother or anywhere else when people were chewing gum and it caused an intense feeling of pure and utter irritation. Are there any sounds that you find irritating?

After reading this definition, do you believe in miracles, or do you think some things are purely just a coincidence? I think many things we go through in life are simply just a coincidence and would happen not to matter what we do.

I have given up trying to understand why people behave the way they do because I do not think I will ever understand how people can be so demanding and rude. I think I have been looking forward to today, since Sunday night!

I have always thought that Friday is the perfect day to let go of all the negative and frustrating things that occurred during the week because we deserve an opportunity to enjoy a couple of days. We are forced to work five brutal days each week and we are only given two days to rest and…

Pick-Me-Up Thursday

Fightmsdaily

Happy Friday Eve y’all! We have almost made it through this week and the weekend will be here shortly! This week has been a little challenging because of the nasty migraine I had for more than two days. I hated having to call out of work on Tuesday, but the head pain was unbearable and I was miserable. I am not sure why these keep happening. I mean it could be heat, stress, fatigue, or who knows what else? I keep hearing that the daith ear piercing helps migraines, but my husband keeps telling me it will not. Does anyone reading this have this piercing and if so, does it help migraines?

At this point in the week, we have made it through three full days and only have a couple left. Even though the week is nearly over, we could all use some positivity to pick us up, right?…

Inspirational Wednesday

Fightmsdaily

Happy mid-week. I barely survived the first two days of this week because I had another one of my awful MS migraines. I ended up leaving work two hours early on Monday and called out yesterday. I do not like calling out of work, especially since I work from home, but there was no way I would have been able to handle looking at a computer screen all day. I was miserable all day and was only able to sit on the couch with my cats and watch repeats of Law & Order Special Victims Unit, which is one of my favorite shows and have seen every episode at least three times, so it did not matter if I fell asleep and missed anything.

Considering I do experience migraines so often, I wish my doctor could find something that eliminated them. Unfortunately, there has been no such luck yet. The…

~How to deal with manipulative people~

Fightmsdaily

What does manipulation mean to you? The Webster’s Dictionary shows manipulation to mean a few different things, but for this post, it means, “to control or play upon by artful, unfair, or insidious means, especially to one’s advantage”. To your knowledge, has anyone in your life ever tried to manipulate you? If so, how did this make you feel and how did you handle it?

Unfortunately, manipulative people can be found anywhere. These people can be family, friends, co-workers, or even new people in your life. They are not always easy to detect because they can easily lie and deceive you. Although they are skillful in their deceptive and treacherous behaviors, they are careless and selfish with only their benefits in mind.

Manipulative people know how to find your weaknesses, use them against you, and convince you to do what will benefit their interests. Some may attempt using positive tactics…

Sunday Thoughts

Fightmsdaily

Happy Sunday! Unfortunately, our weekend is almost over and it does not feel like we even had one. Crazy how incredibly fast the weekends go by, isn’t it? How has your weekend been? My weekend has been uneventful, which I do enjoy. My outside kitty has come to visit me every night, except for when it is raining. She has become more comfortable with me and even tried to get on my lap when I was visiting with her last night. It might sound mean, but I did not let her because I am unsure if she has fleas and I do not want my three precious inside cats to get fleas because that would not be fair to them.

Of course, like always two of my three cats did wake me up yesterday at 6:30 AM, but they did not bother me this morning! Even though they did not…

How to deal with high gas prices

Fightmsdaily

In recent times we have all seen massive spikes in gas prices. While gas prices have created stress and frustrations when at the pump, it has left everyone wondering why, which is a reasonable question to ask. The situation with high gas prices did not happen overnight but has been building for decades. The United States depends heavily on other countries, such as Russia, Canada, Mexico, and Saudi Arabia for gas, but sources are becoming scarce due to increased demands in other countries.

During the summer months, the increased demand has always caused higher gas prices. The only thing that is different this year is gas prices were already too high and we may feel we need to adjust summer vacations slightly. Of course, I understand the desperate need for a vacation, especially for those who have children because the kids are on summer break from school. 

To help everyone…

Let It Go Friday

Fightmsdaily

I have always known that weather conditions, extreme temperatures, and stress can create issues with how Multiple Sclerosis behaves. If I am being honest, Multiple Sclerosis tends to misbehave frequently and have crazy toddler-like temper tantrums. I am not sure which issue causes more issues but do know that combination causes massive and miserable pain. I do not enjoy complaining about the pain and know that tears do not fix a thing, but yesterday my pain was at a high that makes me wonder how I managed to make it through my workday.

Of course, it has been rainy a lot lately with some wild storms. The power did go out while I was working yesterday, but only for about fifteen minutes. There was a part of me that hoped it did not come back on so fast because of how awful I was feeling. My poor cats hate when…

Inspirational Wednesday

Fightmsdaily

We are halfway through the week and much closer to the weekend than we were yesterday. Sometimes this helps me get through when the week feels like it is never going to end. Yesterday did go by fast because I was really busy dealing with demanding people that thought what they wanted was a difference between life and death when logically it was far from that. I try to help give everyone what they want, but it is not always possible.

At the halfway point in this week, I feel we could all benefit from some inspiration. Life is too short to live with mass levels of stress and feeling helpless. One thing we all need to hold onto is hope because no matter how difficult things may seem, there is always room for hope. I do understand all too well how much of a struggle life can be and…

Survived Monday!

Fightmsdaily

We managed to survive another Monday😊! I made it to my pain management appointment on time and of course, they had me wait 40 minutes before the Nurse Practitioner came in to see me. Big surprise, right!? I was getting frustrated, but when she came into the room, she apologized for making me reschedule my appointment two weeks ago and for the wait. She had a doctor’s appointment that she could not miss, which I can understand. I know that doctors are always running behind schedule and the only reason I can come up with is terrible time management. The hour and a half drive to my appointment were just like I had expected, miserable!

I did check the weather on Sunday night, and it was not calling for rain, but of course, as soon as I walked out the door to my house it started raining. I do not…

Animal love is pure!

Fightmsdaily

No matter how hard we may try, we do not and may never understand their language. Unfortunately, we cannot know with 100% certainty if they can understand everything, we say to them because they clearly do not speak our language. In a country that contains massive levels of discrimination due to what I consider the fear of the unknown, how are so many able to form bonds with animals? Maybe those that are full of hatred are unable to form strong connections with animals because they can sense evil. A huge difference between humans and animals is they love unconditionally and do not judge anyone based on anything besides the way they treat others.

For as long as I can remember, I have always had a strong love for animals. My love and appreciation for animals extend to all animal life because each one is an innocent and precious creature…
