I was doing some of my daily reading yesterday morning in Flipboard when I came upon an article with a title of the exact same question i’d Been asking myself, “Are MS Patients Using Too Many Medications?“. In the very first sentence it also introduces a new to me word, “Polypharmacy”, that I’d never heard before but could totally and instantly relate to for the exact reason that Is also mentioned in the title, my MS. I haven’t quite finished reading it yet, as I wanted to write this and get it posted as soon as I could to hopefully start building a bit more of an audience, but am definitely going back to finish reading it.
I've always taken public transit to and from work, especially once I realized how much less stress, expense, and in Vancouver at least, traffic I would have to deal with. Taking transit has always meant there was a lot ore walking in my life. When I was working as a software developer, I'd be sitting at a desk all day which meant that I wasn't getting a lot of exercise.
Now that I am a lot more conscious of my health and my body, I set myself a daily step count of at least 13500 steps a day. I use my Apple Watch Activity App and Carrot Rewards app (if you want to earn more reqards, please use my user code "neilb6398") to keep track of all my step numbers everyday.
Once I saw that I could earn Airmiles and Aeroplan miles just by walking, I'd joke I was going to walk to Hawaii! The only problem is I doin't think my shoes are going to make it. If i haven't somehow punctured a whole through the upper of the shoe like I did with my last brand new pair of Adidas shoes. Hopefully the shoe repair guys can fix them up real nice!
