Smile Where Is Everyone?

I'm missing so many folks that used to frequent this forum. I know things change, life throws us some curve balls every now and then and we just plain outgrow things. But I really miss the "old days" where this place was buzzing and there was always something funny going on in spite of the seriousness of MS.

I really hope everyone is OK and just got busy with life.

If you are so inclined please fill us in on what's been happening in your life. Whether you are new here, been here off and on or are a long time member who's just gotten busy with life......we'd love to hear from you and what's been going on in your life.

I can tell you for myself it's not been anything so exciting that I've not been able to find the time to post. Wish that were it! LOL! MS, as all of us who have it know all too well, is not a predictable disease and likes to plan sneak attacks. It can change by the hour. MS Fatigue has been my major obstacle. Obviously it has given me a reprieve this morning but that's not to say I won't be dragging in a couple of hours.

So, I'll put this post out there for anyone who wants to talk about the goings on in their life right now. Hope to hear from lots of folks!

Ah, Kitty, we used to be so many on this forum...

I've been doing well...just the usual spasms/cog problems. Went on our annual vacation to Hawaii-didn't want to come back.

We have 5 grand babies now with a sixth on the way...4 of the 5 live out of town. That's okay though...we see them throughout the year.

We love our life, take each day as a gift, and enjoy one another. Life is good

My "golden years" have become a bit tarnished. Not at all what I had in mind. But....I guess it beats the alternative.

So true Kitty, viewing the grass from the top beats the alternative!

I have been so fatigued lately. I have been sleeping 15-18 hours a day. I am really trying to stay stay awake today.

I'm having one of those kinds of days today, too. Can barely keep my eyes open.

I just took 2 Provigil and fixed myself a cup of coffee. Hoping that will help so I can take a shower later. Those are my big plans for the day!

I was thinking about Sally today, has anyone heard from her? I hope she's doing ok. Didn't she move into assisted living awhile back?

I'm doing ok. I haven't worked since mid-October, and I applied for SSDI and I'm waiting on a response about that.

I'm good for about 2 hours a day, then the rest of the time I pretty much sit in my chair and rest. I sleep 9-10 hours a night. Sometimes I think of trying to work part time but I have so many limiting symptoms that I know that is out of the question.

I wonder if I should try to get Provigil again? When I was taking Vyvanse the insurance denied to cover that. But they all tend to make my blood pressure rise so I don't know about that.

We went out for a nice family dinner on Friday night with our two sons after a nice visit. The whole evening lasted about four hours. I was completely wiped out for two days then. Things like that make me hesitate about working again.

Well it was nice seeing everyone's updates!

Yesterday was my birthday. I was born on a most auspicious day in history!
