Living well with MS means understanding strategies that enhance total health and wellness. What role do diet, exercise and other holistic approaches play in your life?
Partners. They are all partners in my goal of eliminating as many doctors as possible from my life. And it is all a trade off. If I want to work in the garden or sew or clean house I wind up eating junk because I am too tired to cook. If I read one day then I exercise. Some days I take vitamins others no. Sometimes I don't want to take anything, to see what i feel like with out any supplements. It is all an emotional trade off. My day begins with the decision as to what I need to do to feel good about myself. Sometime I MUST spend the day sewing, designing and making something visually appealing. Other days I MUST work in the garden, to get some vitamin D and pull weeds. Other days reading is a priority, then I shall exercise. Some days I am the vegetable. Everything is musical chairs with me. There is no such thing as a routine. If I have to go to a doctors appointment then I lose two days recouperating from the time spent in the car and the doctors office. Being in the car is the worst thing for me and I hate that I have to go to see a doctor just because they write my prescriptions. Then I have to exercise to relieve the stress on the body from the hours sitting. My total health and wellness is 'all in my head', and I do whatever it is to feel good, diet exercise and hollistic approaches help me stay away from doctors so I like them alot and fit them into my life as much as possible. What about you?
