Unstoppable like the bees in my garden at the moment. They canot get eough of whatever it is they absorb from the flowers, something like pollen.
Am I unstoppable? I suppose I am when it comes to a daily prompt. Today I was thinking shall I or shall I not. I have to leave in half an hour, a little more, for an appointment at my physio therapy. It seems that although there is no cure for MS, you can do a lot to help yourself to keep moving and so the therapy. Of course there are drugs you can take, but there is no cure. They just slow the development down and my doc finds currently as things are not really progressing at a speed faster than light, there is no rush. It is also a question of the money. The drugs are extremely expensive, costing my insurance at least 20,000 swiss francs per year. I would not have to pay myself, it would not be a great problem., but why spend the money when not necessary and my other doc even said if I prefer not to take the treatment, then I can.
I would have to inject, something like insulin, every second day and there are a few side effects for the first couple of weeks of treatment, but nothing I could not cope with. So we are saving the medicine for later, when it would really be necessary. At the moment I can cope. Have a few dizzy spells, some pains in the legs, but they all come and go, and with age – don’t we all have our aches and pains? It just so happens mine have a name.
There are a few advantages, so make the most of them. If you are seen approaching with a stick for support, the traffic stops at the road crossing. Above all, I do not get the silly stupid comments from other people, seeing me walking, in a strange way asking “have you had an accident” “what is wrong, you are walking strangely” – yes, everything has its advantage. I am sure they all mean well, but sometimes such comments can hurt and you feel just plain stupid. Monty Python, the great english comedian, once had an episode about The Ministry of Silly Walks.
You should also watch the continuation about people talking part in the Silly Olympics. Have fun 🙂
If you see the funny side of things, then you can bear it better.
And now to get ready for the great excursion, Mr. Swiss is making preparations.
