    MS Depression has hit

    MS Depression has hit Read more http://www.amazon-lady.com/ms-depression-has-hit/
    I am feeling a bit sad at the moment but for those of you who are in similar situations we know that “every day with MS is not PURR-fect! Depression is just another one of the things we have to deal with but when it does hit you have to try to remember it will pass, but until mine does I thought I would tell you how I’ve been feeling.

    I have received a great deal of comments about depression, which has got me thinking… There is a definite stigma attached to depression and I believe that we do not talk about the subject as much as we should and hopefully the more we discuss the topic, the more understanding people in general will have.

    Suprapubic catheter drama continues

    Supra pubic catheter Drama Continues – In my last blog I told you about the saga of spending time in the A&E department of our local hospital. Finally home after the ordeal, with an Indwelling catheter… I wasn’t very happy as you can well imagine, apart from being in pain I was tired, fed up and hungry and all in all, pretty disappointed to have this indwelling thing back again. But that was just the start of another horrendous few weeks…

    Supra pubic catheter updated – Part two
    I meet with my consultant, new non latex catheters in hand ( well in the box) I had sent pictures to his secretary the day before, showing the state of my stomach, but unfortunately he had not seen them as he didn’t have a computer and the secretary couldn’t print them off. But never mind, I was there so I could show him in person. he asked a nurse to come in to his consulting office and when showed them the state my stomach was in… covered in open sores coursed by burst blisters they were both horrified. He commented that he had never seen such a state and he had no idea what might have caused the blistering. He actually knew that I had previously had a bad reaction to latex, so this time made sure he used a non latex catheter. So he didn’t see how it could be latex that had caused this. No answers again at this stage but he said he would check with the suppliers to see what was in the catheter so we could element one thing at a time. Read more…

    Afraid & Alone

    Last night a wave of depression came over me, I felt very tearful, isolated, Afraid & Alone … I felt very fearful of what lies ahead….It was not like me because I am for the most part, up beat and positive. I try to help inspire others as and when I can, but last night something just happened… like a tap being turned on. I think because I’m so positive it was more of a shock, these bad down times do happen and it shouldn’t be that much of a surprise really but all I wanted was a hug or to speak to someone apart from my husband, I have to be the strong one in the family so couldn’t tell him the way I was feeling. I have this way of saying when asked “how are you” I say I’m fine thank you, how are you. I never let down the shutters, I suppose it’s because I am frightened that once there open I won’t be able to shut them again.

    Allergic reaction to something?

    Allergic to something? … Lets deal with the allergies first, this is not your common allergy to pollen or seeds for instance, this is an allergy to something used in the operation theatre when on both occasions I had a Suprapubic Catheter inserted. within three days of the surgery I came out in blisters that subsequently burst on my stomach(sorry if your eating) so I must be allergic to something they used during the time I was in the theatres. The first time was the 19/10/15 Read more…http://www.amazon-lady.com

    Fear of falling….

    This is an interesting topic that has made me thing about the effects certain things have on us. For instance the Fear after falling. Sometimes I see elderly people walking around with little steps, shuffling their feet as if they are scared to pick them up off the ground. Well maybe this is because they have had a fall and that experience has made them wary about protecting themselves from another fall. Unfortunately I have become a little like this after having experienced two falls recently. Read more http://www.amazon-lady.com

    My day-to-day existence
    Not a lot is different each day, it’s the same each week, the only way I know what day it is is when I take my first pill from my pill pot. My daily routine starts when my husband wakes up at 7.30am and goes into the wet room.

    *MS Brain Power*

    One of the hardest things with any kind of chronic disease is the constant battle with your brain… Whilst you know that you have pretty much no control of MS; you know that the symptoms will progress and your body will gradually deteriorate… It is a constant battle to ward off the feelings of panic – fear and denial. Your whole body is screaming out…. WHY ME! Please let this be a bad dream that I will wake up from!
