‘We wake up and take the indicated action.’ 

Christina Applegate has multiple sclerosis. She’s had it for a while. In an article, (link below) she spoke briefly about her experience since being diagnosed. The quote above shares a perspective of one of her M.S. friends.

“…It’s been a tough road. But as we all know, the road keeps going. Unless some a**hole blocks it. As one of my friends with MS said, ‘We wake up and take the indicated action.’ And that’s what I do.”

As I accept that the new medication I’ve tried recently, after transitioning from one med I’ve taken for years, is not for me (It actually gave me worse fibro symptoms,) and the MRI scan from September shows nothing that would contribute, I get it. This is my fibro life. Of course, now I’m reverse engineering the med switch to return to the rx that was working, per doctor’s orders. I wasn’t aware of the pain it covered until I stopped it. Because I still have a very hard time just functioning daily doesn’t mean I’m not benefitting. I was actually unknowingly enjoying an absence of arthritic pain in my thumbs, neck, and back. I wasn’t having daily, severe headaches. I’m sure there’s more but I’m tired.

As was the case with the original switcheroo, my blog writing may vary. I’m going to wake up each day and take the indicated action.

Writing is one of my passions. Most blog entries are relatively short articles regarding a wide variety of topics. I'm a middle-aged wife and mother of two adult sons. I've been a teacher, counselor, medical transcriptionist, student teacher supervisor, substitute teacher and retail clerk. Staying home now due to fibromyalgia. Seeking purpose.
