So, life has been a lot better since my last MS Ocrevus dose. I had severe fatigue for weeks afterwards but now I just have my everyday normal fatigue. I can function on a bit more of a reasonable level and even though I’m tired most of the time I find coffee and stimulating activities (Youtube, Netflix, Gaming, Hulu) to be quite helpful. I hate napping nowadays so that’s something I tend to try and avoid it if possible.
I have a roomate/best friend that is into a lot of great shows. We recently binged MTV’s “Catfish” together which always makes me laugh. I’m unsure if it’s faked part of the time because I wonder how in the world they find these individuals. Regardless, it’s entertaining.
Recently I’ve been reading a book called “My Sister The Serial Killer” by Oyinkan Braithwaite. The plot involves a woman who has a sister that kills her boyfriends. She works at a healthcare facility and knows how to clean up after her kills. I usually read non-fiction but this book is a good change.
My MS seems to be currently stabilized which is exciting, my next MRI will hopefully go well with no new lesions. I’m blessed everyday I wake up and don’t take good days for granted. Every day is a new beginning filled with endless obstacles and possibilities. Some days are more painful than others but at the end of the day I’m glad to be who I am. You should be glad to be the person that you are too.
