This week has been challenging. Actually, that’s being really diplomatic. This isn’t a banner week. I’m a mess. I don’t even qualify to be a hot mess – just a big mess. I’ll admit that I’ve had moments of extreme self-pity followed by moments of stress eating (McDonald’s fries aren’t really even that good). It’s been one of those weeks. But today a minute happened that was like a life preserver in the black hole. My brother-in-law Joe told me to think about things that are good. I’ll explain.

Monday I started a new MS medicine. It is a 3 times a week injection and it’s awful. It isn’t as awful as the last medicine but I still hate it. The medicine burns like fire when you get the “shot” and then you feel like you have the flu for several hours – every. single. shot. It took me a bit to get myself psyched up to even take it. And then yesterday I had to get STITCHES on the bottom of my foot. Long story, but now I have crutches and it hurts to walk, stand, and sit – anything. However I could balance on one leg better than a yard flamingo in a Category 5 hurricane at this point.
