So, this happened today. You may have some questions... let me try to answer them: Do you have any symptoms? No. Not as of 5:00 pm on October 29, 2020 :). Why did you get tested? I had two positive exposures. It was recommended that I get rapid tested just to be safe. Why are… Continue reading COVID Chronicles-Day 1
***DISCLAIMER*** This post details the specifics of my personal weight loss journey. If weight is a triggering subject for you, please consider skipping this post. A healthy relationship with food is something many of us have had to fight for and I would never want anything I say to cause you harm. And as I… Continue reading Let’s get real…
I see you... mom who chose to let her 3 year old wear a sun dress and snow boots to church this morning. And I applaud you for picking your battles. (And giving me an awesome chuckle.) I see you... lady that seems to be always walking the neighborhood with your headphones on. I am… Continue reading I see you…
How can it feel like this year has lasted 1000 months and flown by at the same time? My last check-up with my neurologist was in February, right before COVID and quarantine hit our state. That visit was a little disheartening and dramatic as we learned about a potential pituitary tumor (thankfully after a look… Continue reading JCV Negative and MS Check-Up!
It’s been a year, am I right? For all of us. I think once this is alllllllllll over (LORD, Jesus... please let there be an end to all this!) we won’t soon forget struggles of 2020.

This September, we're celebrating something pretty big here at Not Today, MS. This September will mark five years since my MS Diagnosis. Five years of CHOOSING JOY over fear, anxiety, tingling fingers, vertigo, medication side-effects, fatigue, pain, worry and anger. We decided in September 2015 that this disease would not define who I am. That… Continue reading Not Today, MS 5K Run/Walk!
I refuse to become a pessimist. Even though I have been shocked and disappointed by people I loved and respected over the last couple of years... Even though my heart has broken over lost friendships and lost people. I refuse to change my "Pollyanna"/believe the best in people attitude just so I won't be heartbroken… Continue reading I refuse.
I’m not going to lie. The last two days have been rough. Reality of our new normal setting in. I haven’t stepped foot in any kind of store or restaurant in over a week and I likely won’t be allowed to for a very long time. My daughter just found out she will be out… Continue reading It’s going to be okay.
I know. The last thing the world needs is MORE NOISE right now. Don't worry... I'm not here to debate or say anything negative. ALSO, as always, I'm not a doctor (shocker!) and anything I say here is simply my experience. PLEASE talk to your doctor...
