Learn More About Me

I had the flu for the last ten days or whatever and it felt like several years. I believe this is the first time I've had the flu or anything since I was diagnosed with MS and it was a real learning experience. First, I took twice as long to recover than my family did. And then my MS symptoms started acting up. (Mom, don't read this next part). And then yesterday, I shit my pants.

I have missed a lot of work lately, due to illness and also having scheduled days off for doing things. Yesterday I didn't feel great, but I thought it was just my MS acting up (I'm nauseated every day when I wake up. Every single day.) So I pushed through it. And in a way, I was right. I pulled into the parking garage, parked my car, turned it off, stood up, and the MS hit. (Mega Shit? Multiple Sclerosis? Same, same.)

But the real impressive part here is that I just got into my car, sent my husband a text, emailed my boss (I'll be in by nine k thx bye) and drove home. Took a shower, put on my second outfit of the day and then went back to it.

Bladder and bowel issues are common with MS, and unfortunately it's something I deal with also. I used to be mortified. Now, it's just life. It just happens. Shit happens, you know?

With that being said, I will not be taking any shit from anyone for the foreseeable. I have enough of my own, thank you. (And yes, all day I was like "oh girl, you can have that! You shit yourself today. Treat yo self.")

I am an adult. And sometimes, adults have shitty days.

Okay, I'm out of fun word play. Shit.
