Christmas Season 2015
Here's a pic of the very first Christmas wreath that I have made myself, and all from scratch.
It's funny how things work out sometimes. I was accepted to be a mentor at the local community college, New Brunswick Community College. It's to help people who want to start their own business and need some free advice. I'll be writing a separate post about that program as soon as I get permission from the college and my mentee. Anyway, one thing led to another, and I was asked to join a wreath making course.
What fun it was and great to learn how simple the technique is. I could have kept going for hours.The only thing is, as usual, my MS decided that I was using far too much energy. I came home after the course and crashed out. I was too tired to eat or even get myself a glass of water. I was lying there for about three hours and got up only because of the bathroom. One of my fears with MS, and I know this might sound silly; I worry that I'm going to pee the bed. It's never happened, yet, but, I have done it in public, and even worse than that. It was when I didn't know I had MS and didn't know how deadly being out in the hot sun was for me.
I blamed it on a weak bladder, irritable bowel, my doctor said it was due to ---------( fill in the blank with anything but MS).
I will never get use to having this condition. It frustrates the hell out of me. I can go swimming and swim laps for an hour and feel fine, but try to read a book; forget it, I can barely manage a couple of pages. I can make a wreath, but I can't do that and socialize at the same time. I can go to a Christmas party , have a good time, and then on the way home lose my wallet (An honest person found it)
So that's my life. I can only do one thing everyday. Well, if that one thing is a making a nice wreath.I guess that's not so bad.
