I have now been featured in Momentum (US-based MS Society magazine) in a gardening article for their spring issue. It was published yesterday. They even used my lockdown bushy hair picture. If you want to have a read there is quite a lot of useful info about gardening with MS.
I have some more things to plant if I feel like it today. It’s nice out and I had to drop my teen at school as her bike was locked up yesterday while she attended an after-school club. She walked home last night then I had an early start to get her to school this morning. So as I was out I went to the shopping centre en route and picked up some bulbs and other bits which can go into the beds when I feel up to it. It’s very quiet still in the shops despite reports it was ridiculously busy at the weekend. Have mask, will shop if we are allowed!
I keep getting bursts of energy interspersed with chronic fatigue which I am not loving. After seeing the MS nurse last week I felt so much more positive but I don’t get any help with energy levels – I wish – and there is much anticipation at the moment but we are not out of lockdown. Far from it. Gardening needs to be my outlet or my ‘happy place’ for now.
I need not to weed things I plant as well. I have a horrible feeling we (my little one and I) might have pulled out some things I planted last year thinking they were grasses. Oops! Some beds look over full now so I probably need to note down where things are planted in a notebook?
