November 2012 Walking Update ~ Share your success

Life with MS is like a roller coaster with it’s ups and downs!  I’m so grateful that for the past two months I have been at the top!  I feel FABULOUS! I keep saying that from the waist up I feel like I did before my diagnosis!

Well, that’s not exactly true.  I feel so well in many different ways yet unfortunately I think I might be getting carpel tunnel.  I’m seeing an occupational therapist next week.

I’m thankful that I’m independent while I’m home, walking everywhere with my walker and practicing every evening using a cane (I don’t understand why I’m the strongest at night!)

Gratefully I can drive and my friends meet me at the theater to watch a movie, or the restaurant for lunch.  They grab my walker that flips into a wheel chair out of my trunk and push me around. If I need to shop, my family or friends will meet me at the store and drive the scooter out to my car.

I will continue to do all the right things; keep my faith, exercise, sleep enough(for me it’s 7 hours a night and at least one cat nap every day), consistently take supplements including vitamin D3 and eat a proper diet (I started eating gluten free on April 1st).  I also take my medications; Gilenya, and Ampyra.

I have honestly been doing this for years.

The only thing I’ve done differently is adding a daily tablespoon of Diatomaceous Earth to my diet!  D.E. has significantly improved my psoriasis and I feel totally excited about life again!

After the 2nd week of D. E. I started having good days.  About the fourth week I had a few days that I felt as good as I did before I was diagnosed with MS.  I didn’t want to jinx it so I didn’t broadcast it to the world.  I was living in the ‘now’, appreciating the feeling of health, enjoying every moment.  I was braced to experience MSee times, which I still do, however those hours are few and far between!

If you’re interested in trying the Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth you can click this link.  You’ll be taken to and find the DE there!

I would love to know what you are doing to manage your MS symptoms! Please share with the community what pharmaceuticals and supplements you’re using.

It will be fun to see where this goes!
