2/16/14 - Washing dishes

With MS my ability to do things and the energy to do things have been going downhill.  I'm exhausted all of the time.  I can't stay in bed because then my bones hurt.  So the only chore I do in the house is the laundry, and I push myself to do that. BUT...today, yes today I did the dishes.  I had been having a good morning so far and David hasn't been feeling well so some of the dishes had built up.  I had gotten about halfway done when he walked in and said he'd finish them, I said I was ok and it had been for the most part.  I got the tremors but I wanted to finish and there were 2 more pieces to the end and he said he would do them and my crybaby came out and said I wanted to finish and he said go ahead and I DID!!  Woohoo!!  I finished!!  You may think this is a small victory, walk in my shoes a day. 

And a great FYI, if you have someone with a hidden, chronic illness, please don't tell them "But you look so good!", that is unless you want them to spit in your eye.  Ok, off MS rant for the day.

When all this pain started I had to find an outlet because my doctor couldn't find anything to ease the pain.  I went back to an old friend.  As far back as I can remember I doodled.  When I should have been taking notes in school, I doodled.  When I should have been paying attention to a caller on the phone, I doodled.  While attending Supervisors meetings, I doodled.  While attending training classes, I doodled.  Well you get the idea.  I started doodling never knowing that it was becoming a new craft faze.  I don't call what I do the same thing as what they do as mine is still doodling.  I have an Etsy shop where I have a few things for sale and have sold a few things. This shop was called Be One Creations, I'll tell you about that another day as these tremors has wore me out.  Anyway here is what I'm working on right now.
Remember, better days are coming.
