About Me

My name is Nicola Jojin. I’ve been living with MS since 2012. I am the person who is: very open minds, honest, provocative, imaginative, communicative… My best characteristic is that I am very positiv! With that I must point out that my life can be presented as EKG – Heart beat. There are many things to do, to see, and to experience… I am going to do everything in my power to not let my MS get in the way of doing things that I love. In hard and easy ways, I learned about this disease and want to share my experiences with you, I want to make it easier for someone to fight! But the most important thing is to understand that with MS you can live on a funny way!
My beginnings
My beginnings of MS? It’s a very difficult question to which I can not give you a clear and definite answer, but let’s take the following as my guide through the beginning of everything! I had morning routine – before work (early morning), My routine was: walked the dog by bike or on foot, breakfast, showering, coffee,  going to work… That’s how it starts almost each day, my every morning. I know some would think monotonous, but for me every day was a new trip, every day was different. So, one morning, while I was walking with a dog on our way, my feet were taken away! I could not move my legs an inch. I could move forward, and not back! Feeling: my legs were frozen! Since I was in the nature, I got down on the grass and sat down, I began to think … of course. I remember the feelings at that moment: panic, helplessness, frustration and anger. After some time, for some ten minutes, everything went back to normal, and I could re-operate! My day passed and I did not get to think about what that morning brought me. But the same thing happened to me in a very short time! 3x in one week. The mind wants to go, but the body will not! Worryingly, was not it, it was time to consult with a doctor! The path I passed with doctors for this story is not important, the important thing is the following: In March 2012, I was diagnosed with Multipla Sclerosis. That day when the doctor told me the news, the dive of the world was a wonderful thought for me! I had a positive life even before this knowledge. This has made it possible for me to quickly go through Phases of dealing with MS. It took me only a few days to understand the disease (I missed the Phase of Unbelief and Negation), and I started to think ” Now what, Sherlock” (my exclamation).
And so, my fight with MS began!

Treatment of relapse and some symptoms
Routine therapy for acute relapses is an intravenous high dose of corticosteroids, usually methylprednisolone at a dose of 500 to 1000 mg daily for three to five days. The aim of this therapy is to stop the attack as soon as possible in order to keep as little a consequence of this attack. Although generally effective in short-term symptom relief, corticosteroids do not have a significant impact on long-term recovery. In addition, longer therapy with corticosteroids can lead to osteoporosis, high blood pressure, psychotic reactions, convulsions, and cataracts.
Spasticity, which can be manifested as a permanent contraction caused by an increased muscle tone or transient spasm, is usually treated with muscle relaxants and mitralants such as baclofen, tizanidine, diazepam, clonazepam, and dantrolene. Physical therapy and exercises help preserve existing functions, while various aids, such as a walkway, a stick and a prosthesis, serve to keep the patie…

Food Sustainability

Food Sustainability
When we go to the procurement, we need to carefully select the type of food we buy, and it is very important to check the shelf life, or the date of production, in order to prevent possible negative health consequences. Here are some of the most common questions about food sustainability.

What does the term of food lasts and what is the sustainability of certain foods? The shelf life is the minimum shelf life, the date by which the food retains its characteristic properties if properly stored. Food sustainability depends on the composition, the technological process of production, the sterilization process, the food additives, the type of packaging, the transport and the recommended manner of storage.
