Apples and Medicine…..Apples actually go better with Peanut Butter….

Yeah, If you haven’t tried it before….apples and peanut butter….AMAZING. I think I ate that for breakfast everyday for 2 years straight.

lol…..that was back when I was a really ‘Healthy M.S. Patient’ though. Yeah, back when I was still running 35 miles a week and working out 5 days a week. Way back when there was such a tiny, tiny, tiny, percent of body fat……I was sooooo skinny. But I was totally fit. Muscular and skinny. OH those were the days !!!!! lolol….right about 13 years ago. My 30’s were the best.

Back to REALITY.

I don’t eat nearly enough apples anymore…..and since I don’t eat apples…..I don’t eat peanut butter. Beautiful, yummy, peanut butter. The best is the stuff that you have to stir. The real stuff that isn’t already smooth because of all the weird stuff in it. The real stuff has character, a little too soft, not very sweet, EXCELLENT with a drizzle of honey, and of course the perfect partner to apples. Any apples. I really like it with Granny Smiths. It is just delicious. Peanut Butter is also fabulous with Marshmallow Fluff. MMMMMMM Fluffer Nutters………Now I am hungry.

When you have M.S. usually no matter how healthy you are (like I used to be) you have to take some kind of medicine. In my case it is Disease Modifying Medication, medicine for depression, seizure medication, medication so I can concentrate at the job I still need, another so my weird m.s. related wacked out Narcolepsy type issue doesn’t have me zombie-ing out approx. 4 times a day, then the medicine that keeps the neuropathy in my forearms in check. That stuff hurts so bad that I can’t type. Used to bring me to tears. There are also the Biotin and ALA that help prevent Brain Atrophy, D3 and B12 because I am deficient……yadda, yadda, yadda, etc. etc. etc. There are more vitamin supplements I am supposed to take…but I get sick of taking it all. I’m on strike…..I’m only good with the main medications…..any med after the neuropathy stuff gets missed every so often. Well maybe I miss it more than every so often…..I’m sooooooo not good at taking those. UGGH. These damn things become another meal. Who needs another meal.

Anyway, I think I need more Apples and Peanut Butter……and I’ll try to be better taking that other meal everyday.

Not really pretty orchids.....I feel bad for the sickly orchids you see at your local grocery store or gas station. I get those and try to nurse them back to health. UGGH, I am a glutton for punishment.
