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)


Bizarre: Describing multiple sclerosis from A to Z

Modern medical literature has plenty to say about multiple sclerosis. We could spend considerable time and energy (of which we often possess limited rations) in poring over volumes of research studies and findings. We could surf the internet for days and days.

But we still wouldn’t really figure out MS. It’s simply bizarre.

How many times have you tried to explain (or understand) what causes MS, what life with MS feels like, how to help another MSer cope more easily, what treatment options are available and how they work, how MS might be cured, and other sticky questions?

We’ve got it. But we still don’t get it.

And each time we face a new MS exacerbation, flare-up, or relapse (or whatever else you want to call it), this chronic medical condition seems to take a new form. It doesn’t look exactly the way it did the last time we wrestled our way through such a season.

That’s right. MS is bizarre.

  1. Yes, it is. What a perplexing condition. As, I'm interested in writing about wellness, I'll be back to learn more.

  2. Oh wow! thanks for stopping by. This is such a relevent blog for me. My mother in law and my best friend have MS.I'm going to share this link with her but she has bad days- well they both do. I am so following this blog. I want to know more and I believe humour gives us courage to persevere xx

    1. I second that. I believe humor can help bring healing ... or at least help us to cope.
