It’s Been Awhile..

 

First off, I wanted to say I’m sorry to all my readers for not writing as much lately. Things have been hectic in my life, not in a bad way though, just been SUPER busy!

So I thought I would give a little update…

First off, I got a full-time job outside of the home and I love it. It’s a small company and they know I have MS, since I knew the owner prior to being hired, and so it really works well for when I have to go infusions and such.

What else… My oldest son’s gymnastics competition started back up, so we have been busy with all of that!

My husband got his side business up and running, so I’ve been helping out with that also.

As many of you know, I’m on Tysabri to help prevent my MS from progressing quickly. I’m now getting my infusions every 8 weeks, instead of every 4-weeks, due to my JCV levels being high.

In April of this year, it will mark me being on Tysabri for TWO YEARS…. And in those TWO YEARS, I’ve had…. NO NEW ACTIVITY. Isn’t that amazing?

I mean, I was going through different medications all in the beginning and none of them were working, so I wasn’t getting my hopes up.
This really solidifies my views that not one medication is for all people with MS. We all have to find out what works for us personally.

Let’s see here, I started working out again… like multiple times a week, and it kicks my butt, but I really want to gain my strength back. I thought I would be able to just hope right back into what I used to be able to do, but not such luck. I’m also really trying to eat better, but do you know how hard it is having everything fried all around me here in the South? You can imagine, I’m sure.

I’m really going to try and be more present on Socail Media, as well as writing more blogs. I think things are FINALLY getting into a routine, where I can have some ‘chill time’ to talk to of y’all!

Anyways, just wanted y’all to know I haven’t disappeared!
