Hi ladies and gentlemen
Apologies for the slow down on updates, but its been 'moving weekend' which naturally took the best part of a fortnight to prepare for and obviously will take another 2 weeks to get over.
Before my 'MS Update' I'll explain what I've been up to
2 weeks of doing an extra hour or 2 after work and several hours at the weekend of packing up / cleaning up / painting over marks on walls / driving repeatedly to the tip (dump for you US lot) to get rid of 'stuff' and moving day arrived on Friday
My 3 man removal team were 2 hours late arriving with the 2 vans and one of the three men had a 'bad leg' so he didn't do his share of the work, Gareth and I ended up helping the other 2 with the removal of everything from the house and the shed and then getting it all into the new place while 'bad leg' (who's limp came and vanished repeatedly) had a rest in the cab of the van.
Unpacking was the name of the game once we got there - I had the kitchen unpacked Friday so we could eat and by Monday when the new furniture arrived all but 5 boxes completely finished. Yesterday was more unpacking of heavy oak furniture and taking the packaging to the tip (again - I'm on first name terms with half the staff there now)
So the update on how I'm doing
Today I feel like the van ran me over and then reversed over me again to make sure I was broken. Everything hurts, I'm exhausted, my brain is fuzzy and my limbs are weak - well of course they are I've worn myself into the ground - so it's good 'broken' and something I would never have been able to achieve 4 months ago :-)
Please note none of this is MS / Relapse / Lemtrada related it's because I've worked like a slave for the last 4 days !!!!
Tonight I'm off to the Oxygen Chamber and hoping I come out feeling like a new woman again (or at least a reasonably recycled one)
An hour each evening this week and we will be done by Thursday evening with unpacking and living life in our new home :-)
Let the good times roll ladies and gentlemen - relish that sometimes you have sufficient energy to break yourself xxx
It's been over 7 years since I started on my Lemtrada journey. It's a marathon not a sprint and in my case it's got a spin off show too now I'm on Ocrevus. Best decisions I could have made, no regrets, fight for yourself because you're the best person to do it This is normally updated weekly please subscribe so it will tell you when I've updated it
