Blogging 101: Say “Hi!” to the Neighbors

What a great idea!!  Off to the “Reader” I went.  My blog is primarily about my challenges with MS right now.  Even though it has been some years since my diagnosis, every day is a new day.  Reading what others are blogging about within the same subject matter is a wonderful way of reducing the feeling of isolation that I have.

Finding new ways of dealing with a symptom, or improving my overall quality of life by adding or taking away something from my diet is all helpful to feel in control of me.  Being in control helps keep that nasty depression at bay.

I am off work today again, as my leg spasms and and nerve pain seem are heightened to the point of not getting sleep, and not being able to move in the morning.  I need to get back into the doctor as I need to know what to take and how much.  This flare is not considered to be a relapse unless it lasts more than 48 hours.  This is what I don’t understand, and am still trying to figure out.

Looking for blogs about humour or staying positive are also on my radar, after all, a smile is a cure all on it’s own!


  1. Some tips that have helped me over the years: a good soak in a bath with epsom salts would help my aches. sitting with my feet elevated helped my swollen feet for sleeping I have needed absolute quiet, complete darkness and just the right pillow, if I couldn’t sleep then two asprin would put me under. When my Father died I couldn’t sleep so I resorted to sleeping pills. I took them for two weeks and then stopped. I got my strength back and now I sleep well. I hope you find what works for you.
