Multiple Sclerosis has many, many symptoms. The one MS symptom that drags me down everyday is fatigue. Yes I am 58 yrs. old and being fatigued should be expected. But why does MS have to drain the remaining last bit of energy out of me for the day?
I am in bed by 11:00 P.M. every night. Like clockwork I am up at 3:00 A.M. to go potty. Most times I fall back to sleep and then I get up for the day at 8:30 A.M. I am thankful for my Westie who is eager and ready to start his day also therefore forcing me to get out of bed.
Having had breakfast, taken care of the dog, showered and dressed for my day it is time for a few minutes of rest. All of my household chores including laundry which is in the basement, have to be broken down into 15-30 minute intervals with a rest period to rejuvenate myself. Dinners now are quick and simple. I do love to cook and when I have the extra energy I will make a meal that is guaranteed to have leftovers.
I know my limitations and try to do the best I can to make it through the day. I am who I am and that's all I got!
