Tomato and potato plants on balcony.
This heat is knocking me out and making all the aches and pains more intense, it is because it is hot humid weather.
If only it were hot and dry think it would be easier and better to cope with, but hot and humid intensifies the MS symptoms.
Shame as I used to love it being hot, the last few days have been agony and at night it gets very late before we can get some relief from the all enveloping sticky heat.
Just got interrupted so have totally lost what I was going to write about which is probably just as well.
Glad I realised on Saturday that it was the sticky heat that was getting to me and not that I had totally inexplicably lost the plot big time.
One of the things I have never been too fond of has been an over concentration on every aspect of every moment in time always thought that over analysing everything meant you would miss out on the moment itself.
Now I realise that there is a middle way that it is good to examine and evaluate what you do but not good to get so stuck in looking at one aspect you do not see more of the whole picture.
In fact you can get so involved in the detail that you can forget anything else including yourself.
The fast progression of the MS makes it difficult for me to nurture good feelings about myself and has meant that my self image has been to hell and back.
Important to have one and one that is not just being an invalid, mind you as invalids go I am well loved and cared for and well nourished.
I am reasonably cheerful, love teasing the dogs gently, mostly pretending that I have thrown the ball or toy.
Love my darling Richie so vey much in awhile he will be in here hoisting me out of
bed and under the shower.
Looking forward to that very much and hopefully the shower will refresh me even if only briefly.
Later when I am back in bed I will seek some mental refreshment and stimulation and information by reading some the blogs I follow.
Recently I have come into contact with two people from Trinidad, Sita is in Ontario and Rhapsody Phoenix in Toronto.
Have had the pleasure of bonding with Sita about the pleasure of Trinidad food, we both were remembering the smell of hops bread.
Shame you can not describe a smell, all I can say is it is a unique smell which I can not explain.
The smell of Hops bread is something another Trini will understand very well indeed, a lasting memory of mornings at home in Cascade, Port of Spain and my dad coming back form getting the morning rolls.
Going to leave a supportive message on Amelia’s blog she has her very first infusion of Tysabri tomorrow.
