Living with M.S.

"Living with M.S. is sort of like training for a long race. The harder you try, and the longer you keep at it, the stronger you become.
Eventually, looking back, you may be amazed at the power you possessed, even when you had no idea it was within your reach." (Linda Ann Nickerson)

MSers' brains may be healthier than we think




Multiple sclerosis symptoms may include brain fog, memory and speech issues, and other cognitive complaints.

OK, we get that.

Still, as crazy-making and nerve-wracking as this frustrating medical condition can be, MS is a neurological disease, not specifically a mental one.

MSers can be just as sharp as anyone else. 

In fact, plenty of people who fight the MS MonSter every day do so with polish, poise, and more than a smattering of sarcasm.

Maybe a quick wit is a coping mechanism. Sarcasm may be a valuable outlet for the aggravations of living with multiple sclerosis.

In any case, this quotation seems to sum it up nicely.

“Being able to respond with sarcasm within seconds of a stupid question is a sign of a healthy brain.”

I’m not sure who said it first, but I found it on a Facebook page called WTF Facts. Hey, that makes it true, right? (OK, that’s sarcasm. Bet you knew that.)

Maybe our brains are healthier than we think they are. Or maybe some of us are just smart-a_es.

Either way, we are kicking back at this thing every day. And scientists seem to be pretty sure humor makes us healthier.
