Corona, dat maakt het nóg ingewikkelder Daardoor en in de winter kan niets meer, zeker met mijn ziekte. Ik kan, door SPMS, niet meer werken. Ik heb weinig energie, veel pijn (vooral ’s nachts), kan me moeilijk bewegen. Maar nadat de Corona-pandemie toesloeg, werd ik nóg meer teruggeworpen op niets doen. Gisteren kon ik niets […]
I decided to write an English blog because of the international communication I use a lot. And my Dutch readers can understand English. Since 2012 I received the diagnosis of secundary-progressive MS. Very late because the first relapse I had (that’s what I think now) was in 1999. I had problems abroad, in Spain. I went to the hospital there but we couldn’t communicate in any language. Spanish doctors only spoke Spanish and my Spanish didn’t go well. When I came back home (in Holland) my problems (vision) were nearly over.
After that I had more relapses but I moved. I have another doctor. So he did not use the former information of my health. Too busy I think. But…I did not have many relapses. I think it’s because of my intuition. Since 20 years I eat vegetarian. I only eat fish. Since the diagnosis I ate meat sometimes. But I think that was not such a good idea for me. It made me feel sicker.So I stopped eating meat. The other reason for the fact that intuition helped me is mindfulness. I am a mindfulness teacher. I decided to do the education before I got the diagnosis MS. I practise a lot and it helps me.
And now I am trying to feel as well as possible in my condition. It’s not possible but I’ll let you know when I am cured.
