It takes something special to motivate me to gather with friends or family... in person or even on line. It’s not that I don’t still like (most of) them – it’s just I find I have no desire to go. https://multiplesclerosis.net/?p=23018

Weather and Multiple Sclerosis - Cold & Hot

The cold makes me feel great! But then it was like MS said, “no, – no breaks for you!” Now my hands can feel so cold it becomes extremely painful! https://multiplesclerosis.net/?p=23168

Telling My Story

When I advised my 14 year old son that I had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, he asked, “Is it fatal?” to which I replied, “It’s serious, but not fatal. He stated, “Good. We can deal with it then.” https://multiplesclerosis.net/?p=23363

To really survive crushing fatigue, you need a good foundation of rest that is, unfortunately, very hard to get because of the MS-related pain that many of us experience. https://multiplesclerosis.net/?p=19709

Has anyone with M.S. had pain that they have been able to pinpoint? Some things like the headaches that feels like an ice pic, and you are accurate within a centimeter (MRI) telling your neuro. where it is at before the MRI? I would like to know if there are others like me out there that are able to do this. By the way I can also control my blood pressure.

I'm a Homebody

I’ll admit it – I like being at home… if people want to hang out, they come to my house… I don’t like to leave it that often. https://multiplesclerosis.net/?p=8365
