Fourth Tysabri Infusion

Today I go for my fourth Tysabri infusion. I would like to say for the most part of it I’ve been great. No headaches and no fatigue other than what most people would get after having long days of doing things. Though, I’m fearful of getting another cold this month as it seems that each month when I’ve been getting my infusion I’ve been getting […]

Achieve with hard work and willpower

You’d never know by looking at him now, but just a few years ago, Kevin Smith was frail, frustrated, and stuck in a wheelchair. Though a commitment to nutrition and fitness sparked his triumphant transformation, Smith also used a steady dose of willpower to go from wheelchair to ripped. “No matter what, there’s no excuse,” he says. “If I can do it, anybody can.” Read […]

October 4, 2016

Hi all, The last month has been amazing. Just this last weekend my fiancé and I celebrated two years since first speaking to one another. I took Sophie out to a local restaurant, Seasoned, which provided a fine dining experience with a menu that changes to suit the season. In this case I selected maple soy salmon served with, lemon thyme risotto, pickled radish, beetroot […]

September 18, 2016

On this day three years ago I was out riding and running around Townsville – travelling great distances. On this day two years ago I befriended my now fiancé Sophie on Facebook. Today, I’ve called Sophie my Fiancé for a little under 6 months and it’s only just over 4 months until we get married! Today, we ventured to the gym, the markets, studied God’s […]

August 22, 2016 – Feeling down

When life gets you down you have to get back up again. For me, my journey with Multiple Sclerosis has had its ups and downs but I know I am not alone.  There have been times I have cried and looked at all the disappointments I have had. But, in all things what matters is I can continue on and not give up.  Giving up […]

Car Service – Hyundai Getz

Yesterday I said good bye to my fiance as she travels down to Syndey for the Disney Musical, Aladdin. She will be away for two weeks but next weekend I will be flying down to Brisbane to meet with her before visiting Movie World and the Eat Street Markets together! So, you can guess, but once I dropped Sophie off at the airport I needed […]

I Ride ‘n’ Run

Today has been a great day! I’ve been so active. I rode 45km, then I walked and ran about 2km, did some push-ups and sit-ups. I then headed off to church where I’m a volunteer in Kidsz Church. I’ve still got plenty of energy but do recognise I need to rest. I’m going to rest for some time now so I can be okay to […]

Changing how I work

So, today is a new day, it’s a regular work day, but, I have plans to be with my fiancé for dinner tonight and would rather not fell fatigued in that moment. So, the idea behind this post is to detail how I will strategically conduct myself in order to conserve the energy I have, so I am less likely to get fatigued. My initial […]

‘Cloudy’ – Fatigue? 

MS Fatigue seems to be revealing itself in my everyday life.  The last week it was not really noticeable as quite often I have enjoyed just resting before doing an activity. Something seems to have changed the last week. Even for the years before being diagnosed with MS, since finishing school, I’ve always enjoyed resting occasionally, throughout the weeks after exercise or other intensive activities. […]
