I commented on another blogger’s post: http://triing2findacure.wordpress.com/2011/07/20/lifestyle-changes-what-are-your-wicked-ways/ about how much I hate cooking, and she asked me which parts I hated. I started just replying to her, but it was getting too long, so I came back here.
This post is going to be in the boring stuff category, so if you want funny stuff the answer is: http://wp.me/p1Cvgh-3f I love writing and this blogging thing is great for recluses like me. I would rather write funny stuff, but I’m going to let you in on the other side a little… (as the violin plays softly in the background).
The more serious answer is both. I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis about 10 years ago when I was 20. Through the years I got a couple of additional diagnoses, raynauds syndrome, thyroid disorder, some weird eyelid thing, and I fell in May and broke my hip. It sounds like I am a hypocondriac, but I really am not. I waited about an hour after breaking my hip before I called my husband to let him know that I had fallen. (Not like that proves anything). I went to physical therapy yesterday because I finally got cleared to put weight on my leg, but the therapist won’t work with me because the spasticity in my leg is too bad. She is referring me to a new doctor for botox in my leg…wierd huh. I could write a whole post about that…
So, now I am 30, have 4 kids, must use either a wheelchair or walker and maybe once a week get to leave the house to go to Walmart (they have those motorized shopping carts or a doctors appointment. I have to make lists for groceries since I can’t go out much, but I hate the planning, prep, cooking and clean up. My kids and husband can and do help, but it is mainly my responsibility. I don’t even get hungry much (medication side effects) so I have to just pay attention to the time to remember to make lunch/dinner. Anyway, I don’t know how I got connected with you bloggers who love exercise, eat right, etc. because I am the complete opposite, but I guess maybe God is trying to tell me something. So, thanks for your tips and comments. If you are like me and don’t enjoy healthy things, I appreciate your comments too. Maybe even more…;)
