not posted lately,not really felt like i have had anything to say,been quite down. went to my Drs today,knew he would have had the letter from my consultant. He looked at me and said "well i think we both knew that's what it was morton", and said he was pleased i finally knew. theres an MS nurse coming to see me as soon as she has free time,who is trained to counsel and help MS sufferers. as for treatment,the gabapentin ive been taking,i will continue,but am increasing the dosage,not had lot of sleep lately,my neck and arm is in agony. as he says,at least i now know what is causing it,and indeed other nasty little side effects im suffering from. sparing you details here gentle readers lol also.he prescribed me some new tablets to try for my arthritis i have in my knee.which got me thinking,and i thought i would share with you this "poem" i received the other week,from a chatroom buddy of mine.
A row of bottles on my shelf, Caused me to analyse myself. One yellow pill i have to pop, Goes to my heart,so it won't stop. A little white one that i take, Goes to my hands,so they wont shake. The blue ones that i use a lot, Tell me i'm happy,when i'm not. The purple pill goes to my brain, And tells me that i have no pain. The capsules tell me not to wheeze, Or cough,or choke,or even sneeze. The red ones, smallest of them all, Go to my blood, so i won't fall. The orange ones, very big and bright, Prevent my leg cramps , in the night. Such an array, of brilliant pills, Helping to cure all kinds of ills. But what i really want to know................... Is what tells each one where to go !!!!!
Thankyou sueg lol will remember that. but it's oh so true. i now take 16 tablets a day bloody hell,no wonder the NHS is in such disarray. it's keeping me going.lol oh well.
my mum is not daft,was her birthday on the 3rd january,is now 87 bless her,and she knows i'm in pain. didn't help me dropping a bowl, would have to be THAT one lol was a rather nice porcelain one my hand has got no feeling in at the moment,and i thought i had a good grip................. ermmmm noooo but mum,bless just said,oh well your hands are getting worse aren't they? think i mumbled something not very convincing. she knows i will do my best for her,always have. always will.
you may notice there is now a link to the MS society on this journal. it's a really interesting site,and i have been so impressed with them. i am now a member,it costs a mere £5 a year,and worth every penny. give it a look,over 85000 people are estimated to have the disease,many,who's symptoms are not severe may not even realise they have it. this journal IS veering away from my caring for mum,and i apologise,but MS is now a part of that caring. together we will go on. take care all.
