Mom Break

I don't want to do a depressing post because that's not who I am but being a MS Warrior Mommy has been challenging the last three days. I pushed myself this weekend and am paying for it now. I try to press forward every day and ignore the leg pain and numbness but it's been hard. School drop off, pick up, gymnastics, playground trips, house cleaning and daily activities are all monumental tasks this week. 

I'm going against my usual self and taking a break today. There is still tons of laundry, toys everywhere, groceries to be bought but I'm taking a pause today while the kids are in school. Sometimes moms need a break.

My left leg was numb and it felt like I had the worst frostbite. I live in south Florida, so this clearly wasn't the issue!  Overwhelming thoughts

Kids vs Treatment

Hello MS mommies! Last week I had a thoracic MRI and today is was cervical and brain. A few weeks ago, it was blood tests and my monthly dosage of Kesimpta. I realized that I needed a medication that would better fit my mom schedule so I switched from Ocrevus. I also had a neurology appointment three weeks ago and my doctor recommended daily physical exercise and cognitive exercises. This all sounds like a lot, probably because it is!  On top of the care and keeping of myself, we had birthday parties, gymnastics, early release, days off school, class photos, valentines exchanges, home work, spirit day, parent lunch, grandparents day and a field trip. This doesn't include the daily waking everyone up and getting ready for the day, lunches, drop off, carline pickup, dinner, laundry, groceries, vacuuming and every day cleaning.  Well, a common side effect of MS (as you all know) is fatigue.
