I know I have been quiet for quite a while now. I have been trying to find the time, energy and right mood to actually write a post. This hasn’t been an easy thing to come by the past few months.
After my quarter marathon and marathon relay in May, I decided to take some time off to heal the knee and other minor injuries I was fighting. Well, that time off was suppose to be about a month. Right now it is still indefinite. The first month or so I was feeling pretty normal and had a lot of things going on. I went to the Bonnarroo Music Festival in Tennessee in June and I was a bridesmaid in one of my best friend’s wedding in July. It was in July when I started to notice some MS symptoms really staying around and not going away. Of course work did get more stressful in July which has not helped the MS situation either. To this day I am still having MS symptoms everyday, usually in my left arm, left leg and left side of my face. We have increased my meds (again) but I am still having issues. I go back for a check up in a little over a week and something needs to change. I can’t run or workout which takes away one of my big stress relievers and mood boosters.
It’s been hard staying positive but hearing every once in a while from my readers (aka you :-) ) lifts my spirits. Keep running and moving! I hope to be out there with you again soon! :-) Until then I will try to check in every once in a while to update everyone on my status or to share some interesting MS info. Good luck out there!
