Still Optimistic Despite The MS.

 

“Ten Blue Eyes”
New raw art, surrealism, expressionism.

Had a pleasant day yesterday even though I was in quite alot of pain, my hands and arms cramping up and locking together woke me up, together with a big spasm.

Funny how I have got used to living with pain, glad it does not stop me being myself and being cheerful and optimistic.

But it does give me a lot to struggle against in order to be able to be myself which is always positive.

Guess it is not too difficult to do because I am very cheerful and optimistic by nature; nothing seems to change that which is brilliant.

Good to see that even this horrible disease that has taken me on such a horrible trip where around every corner there is yet another nasty surprise, has not diminished me.

Being myself is very important for me and now that I am wearing earrings and brooches and necklaces again, I feel even more me.

I enjoy wearing my pretty sparkly things again and getting Richie to spray me with perfume, have to stock up on some new ones soon as I am down to my last two bottles.

The Lolita Lempicka and Jean Paul Gaultier are the ones I still have, my Christian Dior three Poisons perfumes and the Kylie Minogue and Roma by Laura Baggio and the Angel are all finished as is the gorgeous Escada.

I enjoy perfume and my jewellery too much to let MS stop me enjoying them; they are so much part of me now that when I do not wear them it feels very strange.

For the first year in bed I did not wear any jewellery or perfume which contributed to making me quite depressed.

Since end of April this year I have been able to sit intermittently in my wheelchair and started putting on earring and perfume which really helped my mood enormously.

Now I wear them everyday and feel truly me once more and that is good despite the MS.

Oh, Herrad, what a wonderful outlook you have. Even in your pain you manage to shine so much beauty on all of us. Thank you.
Tell Richie to take some pix of the bling you're wearing!!
Peace,

Hi Herrad,

I'm glad you're again enjoying your jewelry and perfume. I love perfume and body sprays, am a perfume-junkie at heart. The only time I've gone w out is when they say not to wear for a mammogram (perfume)and it feels odd.

Anyway, I like the Escada too. Have you tried 'Romance' by Ralph Lauren?

I also like plumeria based perfumes.

Have a good night
