I hope everyone had an awesome weekend! I did as well, however this morning was another story. Last night I was experiencing nerve burning in my arms and legs. This happens here and there as one the many symptoms that I experience with MS. My neurologist prescribed gabapentin which helps arrange for patients with neurological pain. I felt better within the hour. However, this morning I woke up very drowsy and out of it! My arms and legs were weak and the inside feelings felt horrible. What made me even more upset was holding my 10 month old son, but being scared of dropping him due to the lack of strength I felt in my arms.
I know there are many religions and many who are not religious, but I tell you, I am a believer in God and Jesus. After barely being able to change my son’s pamper, I cried out and prayed for strength. I always do, but today with my son watching me, I had to give my sadness and worries to Him so that I could make it to work and carry out the best of my day. I started to walk around and stretched and started to feel a little stronger. I’m still not 100%, however, I managed to “look” not how I feel.
I share with you because I don’t want you feel defeated for long. Yes, things that we are going through can make us feel like we are in a whole, but remember you don’t have to stay there. Even if praying isn’t an option for you, meditating or self affirmations can help. If that doesn’t help, try not to be prideful, seek resources that can assist you with your issues. I’m here for you as well friends! Drop your email and we can chat. Have a good one!
