Sensory overload was something that I worked with regularly when supporting students.
Number of stimulants in our environment can range and affect us differently.
10 years ago I had no problems. I remember going to a concert that year. 20,000 Bon Jovi fans rocking out in a stadium. I loved it.
But fast forward until now and I get annoyed if the television is too loud! I don't know if I will still be able to handle the stimulus that I was accustomed to in my own life.

Definitely something to think about……

Bang on. A perfect image.

I truly have two different lives that I have lived.
My first life ended around 2012. That was when my disease interfered with daily life.

Pre-2012, I was a full-time mom, wife and school support counselor. I loved all three my jobs. And I think that I was doing well before that. I have enough self-confidence to say that I was doing everything well.

2012 was the last year that I was able to travel South during the march break. I guess it could be done again but it would take a lot of planning and money.
In 2012 I was using scooter and wheelchair to get anywhere.
In 2014 I stop driving. I scared myself once.
2014 was my first experience in rehab. It was helpful in some ways. But it was also where I was told that the muscles that are lost with MS cannot be built back up again. That's the hard truth.
Also around that time I quit all disease modifying therapies. The medication I had been taking had stripped away my immunity to the level of an end stage AIDS patient. That were the words that the doctor at the time told me. They thought I had aids until the test came back negative.
I stopped working in early June of 2016. I was done. I had nothing more left to give.
My world had been stripped away like the layers of an onion.
All I am left with is my family and my memories. Sometimes it's hard for me to remember that I used to be a professional. I was proud of my job. I was proud of my family.
Being medically retired and dealing with the deepest depression I had ever been in. I don't really remember much from 2016 until 2019. Those years were filled with the darkness of all I have lost. I could not get turned around. Anger and darkness ruled all aspects of my life.
Things at home were difficult. So much fighting and anger. We all suffered.
Around 2019 I started to realize that I still had more than what many people do. I had my family. I had a house over my head. I just had slightly less money. Living on a fixed income sucks no matter what.
Then the pandemic came… like most families it affected each of us differently. But mostly it was about keeping me safe.
The world stopped and suddenly the majority what are put into isolation just like my regular. But now the world is going again but it's devastating.
Mother earth is crying out. Between the climate problems and the incredible division between the left and the right are killing us all. Kindness matters.
But back to me… I have always been stubborn. I have always looked for the bright side and both sides of any story.
Somehow through all of my personal and societal issues amended into me realizing that we need to recognize things in life to be thankful and grateful for.
Things are not as I expected them to be. There are things in my life that are forever changed and somethings that I've had to completely changed my thinking about.
Every morning I wake up and it is a new day. Every day is pretty much the same. I'm very routined because of things revolving on a specific timeline every day. But the day is new and I never know exactly what will happen.

People often ask how I do it… and I truly don't know. I guess I make the best of what I've got.

If you have made it to this point, thank you!💜





There are so many details that I did not put in. Please ask if you have any questions. I would rather that than having anyone make assumptions.

Battle… definitely. Right from the start!
I went to work the day after diagnosis. Why not? There was no sense sitting at home and worrying.
I had no problem Sharing my diagnosis.
The battle is constant. The battle is twofold. There is one constantly going on within my physical body as well as the constant need in my mind to deal with things the most effectively.
Of course I wish that I never had to Face this battle.
My days consist of always doing the best I can with what I have! That is all any of us can-do.😊

I pretty much do all of it on most days. But I am never not doing anything at all. My body is always letting me know that it is angry. And my brain is always strategizing about my next move.

I don't know anyone who would ever say no to a miracle.
And I also know that it is highly unlikely that a miracle could fix any body with a chronic illness or an auto immune disease.
But I still have my hopes and dreams. I hope you do as well.😊❤️

Change is always difficult and sometimes even a little bit yucky. But at the same time change can be beautifully miraculous.🦋

Admittedly, this is a specific subject that I have spent much time on.
You see, I understand that my friends are leading the life that I once did. They are busy. They are still going full-time at life. I get it.

But social contacts are definitely different when you are disabled… especially if you are isolated.
It is 2022. Virtual social contacts are the norm… everybody sends messages back-and-forth. It works. In some cases.
In other cases you find out that someone who you thought would be there it's not.

Can anyone else relate to this?

It may even fluctuate throughout the month. And that is OK.
Christmas is not happy time for everyone. And not all children enjoy the day is off school… it is all OK.
We need to respect each other❤️

It makes me sad that respect is taking such a s**t kicking in society right now.
