Stressed & Busy!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've been SUPER busy & SUPER stressed. I changed rooms w/ my father in law, so we now have the master bedroom and that's taken a lot of time! (I'm an organization freak) We also ordered a dumpster so that we can clean & throw out a bunch of stuff... and on top of it all, I've been looking at other degree plans online for when I go back to school and I've been busy with MSWorld stuff!

I made a decision that has lifted some weight of my shoulders. A "friendship" I valued, wasn't really a friendship at all... and instead of dragging it out to be hurt more and more, I just 'deleted' the person from my life. I can't take any stress, or being "one up'ed" all the time. I am thankful for the friends that I have and where I am today, and I don't need anything/anyone dragging me down.

My body has been going through a lot as well... this weather change is just horrible on me... I can say that the Tysabri has given me more energy.... but it doesn't take away the pain that I have. I went to the urologist yesterday..... that was, interesting, to say the least. I have to go back next month for an evaluation... He said that I have a "stress induced bladder"??? Something like that. Basically when I cough or anything like that I "leak"... and don't be GROSSED out about it, because it's the trust and a lot of people suffer from urinary issues with MS.

I have my check-up with my neurologist next Thursday, so that ought to be fun! I'm interested as to what all he has to say about everything going on. I used to feel annoyed when going to the doctor, now I'm a bit excited because I get to know more about what's going on. But, I was also not as excited to go to the neuro, when I thought everything was fine w/ me on Avonex and that wasn't the case.

Everyone keeps asking me if the Tysabri is working.... and I'm thinking to my self "Hold on, while I step in my MRI booth and see!" It's like do I have more energy, yeah.... but do I know if it's "working" no... I would have to get an MRI for that.

I'm still waiting to hear back if I can take part in a clinical trial for Spasticity. It's for a drug like Baclofen (the med I'm on) but w/ less side effects. Hopefully I will hear something soon.

Well it's time to get some chores done.

Cool picture I took in my front yard.
