Why does everything have to be so hard?

Hello Everyone.

I’m struggling today. I’m usually very upbeat and think positively for the most part but every now and then I feel defeated. I just don’t understand why everything has to be so hard??? I pulled weeds in my garden today… usually therapeutic… you would think… but I kept losing my balance so it took everything I had not to fall over when I would get up. Then taking the weeds to the burn pile at the back of my yard… it’s like I have sand bags on my legs and trying cautiously tell my foot to lift as I walk. Once in the house I sit and think why was Something so simple so challenging?
I don’t know about you guys but I’m getting so sick of fighting with my body to work every day. It’s been every day for 20 years that I have been fighting with this monster (MS) that took over my body. Urg… I’m exhausted.

That’s the story of ms. Early on you can push on and things return to normal. Then you get worn down doing routine tasks. Then things go Back to normal. Then your normal changes. The bar is lower. Be careful with overexersion . Do tasks when weather is cooler. MS is relentless. We have to adapt to it.

Yes @kelly_hornick, I wake up every morning and get ready for going into battle. I mean, I guess that because I go to work every day nobody would guess what’s going on with me. It’s a really personal thing too, it doesn’t translate when you’re trying to describe what it’s like. That sai, people on Shift obviously have a pretty good idea! Hope you have a good weekend. I did laugh at your comment of weeding as therapy. Good grief, that would be like a punishment for me! Nope, give me chocolate for therapy, anyday….. x

kelly, the joys of MS, that is the reason I write my blog, no one understands the things we go through on a daily basis, MS sufferers do, but even we are all different, just listen to your body http://www.wholesorts.com is my blog, a decent read and I suppose useful to some, good luck
