Sunday Morning

I'm enjoying a quiet morning with coffee and a homemade scone. Was up at 5 this morning then went back to bade around 5:30 and slept till 8.  I'm tired today as I over did the last two days, but it's not train wreck fatigue, it's just the kind of tired I think anyone would have after two busy days.

Beginning week three on the LDN still not seeing improvement as far as my MS symptoms, but obviously my energy level is better. However, I'm going to have to learn how to manage the new energy levels so I don't over due. I don't know how far I can push anymore, which is a great problem to have.

I did something stupid yesterday. I was full of energy so my husband helped me out of my wheel chair onto a gardening stool so I could trim the bushes in the front yard. I did great for about 15 minutes then I fell backwards and hit a  small boulder we have in the front yard thankfully I didn't hit my head on it (maybe it would have knocked some sense into me). Didn't seriously hurt myself, but I won't be gardening anytime soon.

I see my Neurologist next week.....I just hope it's not a complete waste of time. Of course he doesn't know that I'm getting a second opinion on the second of April and looking to change Neurologists.

Kimberly, I am going to check out square foot gardening this year. Sounds more efficient. You can actually garden in boxes that you set to the height that works best for you. Lower maintenance from what I understand. Good luck! Courtney

Sorry you fell backward off your gardening stool. It sounds like something I would do! Glad you didn't hit your head on the rock, however. Don't give up trimming the bushes because of this - it was a fluke.

On another note, when I asked my doc about LDN for fatigue, he chose to give me a prescription for Ritalin (10mg in the AM and again at Noon). You might want to discuss this with your neuro. (or not)

I was on Provogil for awhile...didn't help me near as much as the LDN. Hope the Ritalin works for you!
