To the Chinook Mall today to exchange an outfit that I bought two weeks ago on the 14th of May because it has become one size too big. I know that this is not about losing weight, but that’s a side effect I like a lot! And to boot, they gave me $10 off the shirt because now its on sale and they honored it. Nice! I walked that huge mall without my AFO brace and had no problems at all. I have avoided this mall and all others because it had become too hard to ambulate around them. I’d last ten minutes at best. And, must confess to another symptom that I have suffered from that I don’t like to talk about, but really should, given the fact that many people with MS have these problems too. I need to add it to my symptoms page, so that I can update it, because its good news. The fact that thus far its been removed. That would be muscle weakness in terms of bathrooms and running and sometimes not making it. This is another big reason that I have stayed away from that mall, especially. It has three bathrooms as far away from each other as possible and two of them are so far off the beaten track, down hallways, then stairs, a maze, I’ve had problems in the past with the distances.
This is a symptom I have that, thankfully hasn’t been a problem almost from the beginning of working this Protocol. Now, I might say that and then it’ll raise its ugly, embarrassing head, however, I’m choosing positive imagery on this one. It isn’t coming back. There, how do you like them apples?!
