Not so good.....

The last week was difficult in terms of eating. I have eaten all sorts of things, most of which aren't too bad, more the extra fat which is a problem..... I have eaten cheese, eggs, chicken and tuna, mainly, I also ate the unopened packet of Christmas tree chocolates - around 10 caramel bells.......

I lost another pound, which is another pound to add to the total, but I am a little disappointed in myself......

This week should be ok, so far I have been almost 100% (had a little cheese this evening) and although I have the Lifesaving Post Christmas party to go to I am not that worried as it is a basket meal for next to nothing - I am having Scampi, chips and salad - without the chips and only a few scampi! It's more about the social aspect rather than the dinner! Will be driving as well - I am almost saint like!!!!

I saw my MSN on Friday. As usual she was really nice, unusually she was heavily pregnant! As she goes on MAT leave in a couple of weeks she had another MS support nurse (MSSN) with her so she could have a bit of a handover - very sensible, not like the NHS at all.... MSSN seemed nice, she was very quiet, I have another appt in November so I am sure I will meet her properly then.

It was quite funny really, I had just told her (MSN) about my current ongoing symptoms, and adding that they were getting better, and she said, so since June (when I saw Cons) you would say you have had no relapses? I said, no, I would say I have had 2 relapses! She had forgotten about August but had the emails (don't blame her, must be many, many of us to remember) and hadn't twigged that what I was describing at the moment wasn't normal for me...... She said she would be interested to see what my Cons says in May as I am still having relapses - I think I am better thanks to Rebif and only have sensory relapses - so however much I moan and however irritating it is to have relapses I am forever grateful for the improvement I have had.

Nearly forgot, I will be getting to trial the new RebiSmart injecting device for a month - thought I may as well give it a shot. Apparently it helps reduce skin reactions and as my thighs tend to get very red and bruised it may help, you never know.

Hi, I live in Texas and just came across your blog. I do visit Cornwall last several summer now in England. My in laws live there, and it is heavenly. I have a good friend who also has MS here in Houston, she is originall from Scotland. What were the symptoms that you were having,and how are you doing? We always have to look at the brighter side of things in life and find little blessings. and I too need to lose a few pounds, as I packed a bit over last couple months. but, I walked 3 miles today, so a good start.blessings, Mary Ann
