A personal account of my dealings with progressive multiple sclerosis. And my battle with trigeminal neuralgia and the brain surgery that stopped the pain!

Like a yo-yo, honestly that is how I feel about my days. One day I am out
and about accomplishing all the wonderful things that are on my agenda. The very next day I cannot get the strength to even be vertical.
I looked up how yo-yos work and found that there are three different kinds of energy needed to make the whole thing happen:
#1 Potential energy—because it's a certain height above the floor.
#2 Kinetic energy of movement—because it's moving up or down relative to the floor
#3 Kinetic energy of rotation—because it's spinning around.
And honestly my life consists of all three types. Yet on the "bad" days I'm
just not maintaining #1 which would compromise #2! Now #3 shouldn't ever be too much of a problem because I am nearly always spinning out of control!
Once I get this figured out I will be sure to share my findings.
Until then I'll just continue to hold tight and try to enjoy the ride!
