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)


Remember when bathing didn’t make you blind?

Brr! Baby, it’s cold outside. Got cold toes? Frozen fingers? Frostbitten nose? Wouldn’t a hot bath be just the ticket?

Nope. Not for an MSer. Hey, bathing can make you blind.

Blame the MonSter.

Remember Uhthoff’s Syndrome? Heat and multiple sclerosis don’t get along so well. A slight rise in body temperature can awaken such MS symptoms as optic neuritis, vertigo, random numbness, extreme fatigue, tremors, and more.

Boy, do I miss hot baths, especially in the winter. A lukewarm shower just doesn’t cut it during a cold spell.
