So Christmas has come and gone once again, and unfortunately this year I spent most of it pretty sick, hence my witty title ;)
The holidays have been a bit frustrating for me this year so far because of this. Having to back out of plans at the last minute because of being a sickie, does not make me a happy camper. The main thing I was upset that I couldn’t do was Christmas dinner with my boyfriend’s family, which I was really looking forward to. Instead I spent the night on the couch, eating soup by the fire and feeling a bit bad for myself. Merry Christmas to my box of kleenex!
It’s hard not to get a bit mad at my body in these situations. I can’t help but blame my MS for my always catching colds and getting sick so easily. The meds I take are definitely not helping that, when they are meant to suppress your immune system, you’re not left with much to fight off any incoming germs. It’s upsetting because its just yet another time that MS has come to bite me in the butt… okay not literally, but let’s just say that my MS and I are not on speaking terms right now. My MS needs some time to think about what it’s done and apologize for it! Thankfully everyone has been understanding so far about the situation, because when I’m sick, it’s more than just the cold that is holding me back. All my MS symptoms act up a bit more than usual also. So I’m a little extra spasmy and foggy right now. Not to mention the lack of energy and leg issues.
I really just want to be better in time for New Year’s Eve, because I’ve been looking forward to spending it with my special someone for the first time, and I want to be able to get out and celebrate the start of a new year, leaving behind all of the craziness of 2014!
Keep your fingers crossed for me, bloggies!
