After being sick with the flu, and basically bed ridden for three days, it felt really good to finally be able to do some work on Saturday. Even though it was “chores” it gave a sense of accomplishment that you just can’t get laying on your back and counting the dots on the ceiling. Reflecting back, that was a good portion of why I wanted to keep working through my first really bad exacerbation; and not take a leave of absence. If you can, I think it is good to get out of the house and do some work. In the very least it gets the mind off of the MS for a while; but I think, at least for me, that it was an issue of not letting the “MS win” and that was not how I was going to quit working. I at least won that round!
