Without commitment...you'll never start but without consistency...you'll never finish!!
You can't always have a clean start in everything you do but the work you put in,to make sure you get to the finish line first, shows your true character ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿพ

MS question day 4
"Is there any diet that helps with Multiple Sclerosis"
.
Ima have to say a big fat YES to this question.
.
Vitamin D is very important. Studies show that higher Vitamin D levels correlate to a slower disease progression and fewer lesions than ms patients who are defficient in vitamin D, and that's what we want right?
.
Also, cut out the processed foods (anything that comes in a box or a bag is a good rule of thumb) because these foods cause inflammation which can intensify your symptoms and that just makes life feel ๐Ÿ’ฉ-y
.
Ontop of cutting out inflammation causing foods, also add in extra anti-inflamitory foods!
.
Some good ones are Tumeric (I put this in my smoothies every morning)
.
LOTS of green leafy vegetables (I hate salads so I blend 3-4 cups of spinach or kale into a giant fruit smoothie every morning)
.
Vitamin B 12 is great because it supports nervous system functions
.
Honestly, I think everyone should follow these guidelines to be healthy and feel good. But it is especially important for MS patients.
.
What you eat DOES make a difference in how you feel, and how intense your symptoms are.
.
Your body wants to take care of you.. just give it the tools it needs!

The left hand side is the total cost of this medication PER MONTH. The right hand side is the total cost of my medication after my 80% coverage is applied (coverage that I have for the next 2 months because I'm completing another degree)...
Now, although I haven't been enjoying self-injecting, I am all sorts of thankful that I chose Rebif. Thankful because, EMD Serono (Rebif drug distributer) has a program called momentum, that has helped cover 90% of the cost of this medication ON TOP of my school benefits, to alleviate the monthly cost (Although, this percentage was based on the fact that I was out of work for months. So, very interested to see how that will change when they see that I'm earning a wage....)
But definitely thankful that with my new job I am also eligible for benefits, because....WHO HAS THE MONEY TO PAY FOR THIS?! Certainly not I! Over the months last year, I was absolutely not making anywhere close to 2000$ a month...
Crazy to me how for the largest population of MS-ers in the world (Canada), and for an illness affecting millions of people all over the ๐ŸŒŽ , that they've made medication so inaccessible for so many folks.
MS medication is NOT covered by OHIP (Ontario health insurance plan) in Canada, and the amount of money people are having to shell out (out of pocket) for these meds is truly appalling and absolutely insane...
I wanna know what it is that's in these MS meds that makes 4 injections total 2,000$ a month. Four little tubes....
Is there gold in there?
Is it like a special Harry Potter potion?
Could it be mixed with water from Mars?!!

We've had an absolutely incredible day at the #LondonMarathon. Over 300 of you have given your all - through months of training and hard work, topping it off with an achievement of a lifetime today.

"There is so much to be grateful for."
.
Just a little reminder during my #piyo workout this morning. ๐Ÿ˜ Thanks, @chalenejohnson .
.
Love the yoga and Pilates combined with athletic movement in my PiYo program. Exactly what I've been needing. Day 8/60 done ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
.
.
Feeling more flexible, and sore, which are all good things ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿปand excited to see the end results in 52 more days ๐Ÿ˜‰ This was my first program I followed with Beachbody, the program I fell in love with, the program that made me stronger both physically and mentally, so it's the perfect way to keep this #msbody moving, strong, and healthy. .
.
I've been pushing myself a little too hard with more intense workouts, which gave me some amazing results, but my body revolted and couldn't handle it. Low impact and low intensity is more up my alley, and this program is perfect for that AND provides amazing results too. ๐Ÿ’ฅ Win win. ๐Ÿ’ฅ
.

I have 52 more days, friends....plenty of time for you to join me on this journey ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿปโค What are you waiting for? ๐Ÿค”

#Depression is not the same as being sad! That is the number one mistake friends and loved ones have made when they talk to me about my depression. They assume I am sad about my situation and that is the reason why I'm depressed and it's not even like that at all ๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘
.

It's difficult to explain unless you have it. Depression comes out of nowhere, it is not triggered by anything, it just appears and you're left feeling hopeless and without a single shred of happiness in you. You don't know how long it will last but you hope and pray it goes away soon. For me, depression comes and goes just like many of my other symptoms. It's happening less and less (thank #god) the further I am in #treatment.
.
.
I never suffered from #mentalhealth issues until I got sick with #Lyme disease. Depression, #anxiety, panic attacks, #depersonalization, etc were all strangers. I always thought those who suffered from a mental illness was because they did not have the willpower to shake it off or get better on their own. That they were weak. That if they wanted to beat their depression, then they should just go outside and do something fun. Yes, I was completely naive and made the same mistake that many of my loved ones first made when I got #sick. .
.
I'm open about my mental health issues because I'm not ashamed of them. They are caused by chemical imbalances in my #brain and I don't have any control of them. So I'm not #crazy, I'm just sick ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹ but my brain is #healing and hopefully these chemical imbalances will get it together soon so I can go back to being me full time. ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š #mentalhealthawareness

I've got about 1wk left with these sweethearts. they're looking pretty good. I should still get a nice yield, though I've been clipping about 15gr a day for my raw Cannabis experiment. I basically cleared out the smaller/lower buds that weren't getting much light. they'd have probably stayed "๐Ÿค y" #rawcannabisexperiment #15-20gradaywet #mswarrior #bluedream #silverhaze #durbanpoison #cureme

For those of you who have been following my #MSTreatment journey, you will remember that I have been doing #IVIG #Infusions since last summer. (Previous DMDs since 2004: Avonex โžก๏ธ Rebif โžก๏ธ Copaxone โžก๏ธ Betaseron โžก๏ธ Tysabri โžก๏ธ Copaxone โžก๏ธ Tysabri โžก๏ธ Tecfidera) I had to stop after 6 months (January) due to insurance arguments, and then my neurologist wanted a second opinion on using IVIG since I'm her only patient to have this treatment. Even though the #MSSpecialist at UIHC agreed with IVIG, and told me to continue using the #GammaGard, my neurologist got nervous and canceled the regular monthly treatments. She prescribed one loading dose in mid March, but then said I would need to "get worse again" before continuing. This absolutely baffles me. In her defense, before everyone jumps on her, the reason she is hesitant is bc she doesn't want to harm me, as IVIG can have potentially serious side effects and she has no experience using this treatment. That being said---- #DMT and #DMD medicines have MUCH MORE DANGEROUS SIDE EFFECTS!!!! And how much worse do I need to be?! I'm always worse! How do I judge between "bad", "worse" and "want to die"?!?! Anyone else out there that uses IVIG to help reduce #MSSymptoms and improve #QualityOfLife? Asking for a friend. ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผ #ChronicallyMeg #MS #MultipleSclerosis #MSandMeg #ADecadeWithMS #LivingWithMS #ThisIsMS #IAmMS #MSLife #MSProblems #MSWarrior #MSPatient #Neurologist #Treatments #MSTreatment

You don't need a Monday, or a new month, or a new year, to make a change. It just takes that first step, on any given day, to get you started!
