Today was Thursday. It was the second day of vacation camp and hot as hell. Basically Satan called, and he’d like his weather back. I am sweaty, sunburned, filthy, exhausted and happier than I have been in a long time!
I just feel so productive. This is my element. I’m at a camp, running great program for kids. I’m keeping them safe in the 95 degree weather. One girl told her mom I was the “sunscreen natzi” and just kept making her put on the sunscreen. I must have uttered the phrases, “put on more sunscreen before you go outside,” and “drink some more water,” at least a million times today.
Now, the MS and heat thing is a bit of a problem, but I was more proactive about it today than I have been before. I had my cooling wrap since the wee hours of the day. I put my vest on by 9am. We went swimming from 2-4pm, and I jumped in and out 5 times during that time frame.
I’m happy. I feel good. I feel productive. MS is not going to win…today anyway.
