How are you Feeling?

Yes, I realize tht I am guilty hof plagiarism. I am, after all, a retired English teacher. Plagiarism is a BIG thing in my circle. 

But, this issue requires something more than an opportunity hto cick on a link. Not that I have anyting against "links." They are very helpful; but I also am a strong believer in saving time. Thus, my crime of plagiarism.

Your comments (on the aricle, not my crime) are apopreciated.

The Question “How are you feeling?” And The Mixed Feelings It Can Cause - MultipleSclerosis.net
Devin Garlit- If there is one question that those with a chronic illness like multiple sclerosis hear a lot, it’s “How are you feeling?” or some variation of it. It may seem like something so simple, so common, but it’s something that stirs up mixed emotions for someone like me. At times, it can be an extremely positive measure, that I’m very thankful for. However, other times, it can leave me feeling a little down depending on the circumstances. Regardless of how it makes you feel, it’s a question you are going to encounter often and it’s good to be prepared to... READ MORE

Laura Kolaczkowski- I’ve been talking to a person investigating the ‘construction’ of a standalone wellness center intended to serve people with neurological disorders, especially people like me with multiple sclerosis. A point I make over and over to the point I am sure he is tired of hearing is before they do anything, they should actually talk to the people who are expected to use it. You can build the most spectacular setting for wellness, but if the program doesn’t resonate with the people who are expected to show up there, it will likely be a failure. So what would a center... READ MORE
Editorial Team- What is Giving Tuesday? #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

Kim Dolce- I approach managing multiple sclerosis in the same way I approach writing in that I instinctively lean towards my strengths. Hindsight is one of my best, as is learning all about something of which I know nothing and then teasing out the subject as though I invented it. Mine is a searching, integrating internal process equipped with a reliable editor. That said, procrastination and intellectual laziness are up there, too. I know my limitations and can therefore wholeheartedly embrace humility once I get around to it. Writers walk a fine line between self-aggrandizement and self-loathing. So, too, people with MS. Decisiveness is a strength that has always taken a... READ MORE
Kim Dolce- How embarrassing. While I was feeding pop cans into the return depository at the grocery store the other day, a woman suddenly planted herself in front of me and said “Hi, how are you?” in a very familiar manner. I didn’t know her from Adam. “Fine thanks, and you?” I said, trying to act cordial while I racked my brain to remember where I’d seen her. But she wasn’t fooled. “I’m Patty, Ann’s daughter,” she reminded me, looking a bit uncomfortable. I can’t say I blamed her. The same thing happened to me once, only the recipient wasn’t friendly and... READ MORE

I heard on the news last night the men’s football head coach from the University of South Carolina answering a question about how he felt about playing football on Thanksgiving Day. He said Thanksgiving wasn’t a day, it was a meal. I totally disagree. I believe Thanksgiving is a way of life. The Bible tells us to rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. After being diagnosed four years ago with multiple sclerosis which has no cause and no cure, I had to reconcile the fear... READ MORE

Riding the MS broom

Do you ever feel like the ultimate witchy woman? That is actually a rhetorical question because I know you do. We all do whether we mean it or not. And guess what? We have a right to feel that way. Our brand of broom is a touch one to ride. That is why I truly believe that our supreme master, who ever/whatever that may be, doesn't throw us more than we can catch.

MSers (I read recently that this is an inappropriate way in which to refer to individuals with multiple sclerosis. The source of this judgement obliviously does not live with the disease. MS Warriors are far less offended by such a label than that.) are strong individuals who thrive on finding a purpose, a solution, a balance.

We are dependent on our co-pilot Common Sense. Care Givers are a beautiful addition to our lives, but many MSers (I did it again!) are not fortunate to have someone to clean our broom and dust off the daily spider webs that clutter the  cognitive mess of our brains. I learned that long before MS becam…

Yoga Burn gives new incentive to my morning routine.

I am not one much for online shopping indulgences, but a couple of weeks ago I allowed myself the rare treat of purchasing the Yoga Burn program advertised on Face Book. This morning I completed week one of the monthly scheduled routine and I even took time to meditate under the guidance of Yoga instructor Zoe Bray Cotton.

Laugh if you must, but I really, really, enjoyed the meditation exercise. I realize this is a solitary activity and I will never practice this in front of husband and/or son. 

I felt wonderful afterword, though. So at peace and relaxed. I always knew I was a Zen Goddess at heart.

What I really love about this program is that it "is a comprehensive online yoga course directed toward women only."  The older I get, the more I appreciate anything to do with "for women only". Weird, huh?

Zoe' voice is so very soft and inviting. As she leads me through my morning poses, I really feel as though she is my new morning bestie. Of course, I have only comple…

This Writer's Euphoric Journey

It is November and that means National Novel Writing Month. I participate every year. As always, I am behind on my writing goal for the month: WRITE 50,000 WORDS  IN 30 DAYS. 

With only two days to go, I still need 10,000 to finish. 

So...I will see you here again on Wednesday or at the end of my journey of 50,000 words. Until then, breathe.
