MS, HEAT, SECONDARY PROGRESSIVE, CHOOSE COOL

It is hot today, hotter than yesterday, 88, 85...but not humid anymore. My MS doesn't like humid, but since moving to secondary progressive stage "hot" is not a problem. My fan control is in place. Liquids at the ready. All good. I even sat in sun at 7am, get that vitamin D. I live across from a large lake, not Lake Superior but not Pretty Lake from my childhood in Indiana. (nor the quarry 'lake' ewww) There is so much water in Seattle, lakes, rivers, ponds, sounds, bays...always a cool breeze somewhere.

I used to have to wear a cooling vest, but like I say, something has changed with my MS since going stage 3.

A new woman with MS moved into my assisted living facility. Of course I hoped we would be BFF! Alas, I don't see that happening. She strikes me as angry. Many people are angry when they first move here, so maybe it will pass. The last MSer here was too angry and she moved out. Her friends warned me that she was very angry---about her lot in life---MS and all.

MS is no fun. MS can be downright, wait--IS downright horrible disease, but if you are not diagnosed as Primary Progressive then thank your lucky stars and get on with living what life you have! EVERYBODY HAS SOMETHING, we will all have many somethings, unless we die young or are a Kadashian. (I am not sure what exactly a Kadashian is but I think they are rich, white, Paris Hilton wannabees. No worries for them but what diamonds to wear.) (It may also be a Yiddish word and if so, I apologize.)

She is one of those people who has something bad to say about anyone and everything. I am all for pointing out problems, but there is anger and bitterness mixed in ---not constructive in any way. Her husband left her when she got the DX of MS, and again, a story I hear too often and it is truly awful...but life goes on. I mean, it just will, like it or not so why not try to make it as pleasant as possible?

Oh well, I have BFFs...the last F (forever) is hard one. I am amazed how few people can make that leap.

Hot here, but I am sipping an iced mocha and enjoying the beautiful sky and the happy, chirping like crazy birds.
