- trying to connect to more websites (at one time) than the current internet connection is able to manage,

Tuning in sometimes clears the clutter for an MSer
Surplus stimulation can be startling, spellbinding, or simply shattering for anyone with multiple sclerosis. Loud, competing noises are often a particular problem to an MSer.
Even during a season of remission – as for a person with relapse-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) – the clutter of cacophony can be confusing.
Living with MS in a busy world sometimes feels like:
It can be annoying, confusing, disorienting, frustrating, and perplexing.
Loud and dissonant noises, in particular, can cause MS symptoms to erupt and blow up without warning.
In such situations, lots of MSers tune out … by tuning in.
We slip on headphones (or earbuds) and listen to rhythmic, soothing, relaxing music. Maybe we don’t listen to anything at all – just the sweet sound of silence.
Maybe mild MuSic does soothe the savage beast … or at least, the MS MonSter.
