I was hoping that after a good night's sleep my body would have calmed down. No such luck! This morning I could hardly lift my head. No way Jose! Not a chance of getting out of bed. I slept all day so Heather just left me and did Grandma things teaching bike riding and walks along the prom. Margate is beautiful whatever the weather or time of year. When Heather and I were just together some forty years ago I said I liked Margate better in the winter, no crowds and it seems like you have got all of that seaside charm and beauty all to yourselves. Well there was me in bed and her and our grandson out enjoying Thanets winter wonderland, I was asleep so didn't know what she was up to.
Eventually she returned home and I need to go to the bathroom. I may be ill but bodily functions stop for no one. This presents us with a problem. One large immovable object, me and a landing to cross. Eventually I am in the wheelchair, unless you have ever had legs that refuse point blank to move you will not appreciate just how heavy a single leg is Heather has no need for a gym subscription! And then she has it all to do again on the return journey.
I am still in bed, l have spent the evening watching television and now I am here wide awake and I can hear Heather asleep in her room. Blooming Multiple Sclerosis messes with you in so many ways. It just takes the slightest thing to upset you and you are laid up. I am in a wheelchair all the time but if you can't get out of bed even that little modicum of independence is robbed away by the beast that is MS I don't care anymore, it cannot rob me of anything else. I just go with the flow bobbing about in the stream, sometimes the stream is in full flood and I am bashed about and other times I am in a quiet back water close to the bank but the bank of the stream is so steep I can never get out, I just keep going downstream not knowing what is coming next.
