MS Week, April 20-26th

This is MS Week.

I suppose I could be considered one of the lucky ones.
My MS has deprived me of the ability to walk or to handle objects easily. I am visibly affected. ( “You always were.” Quiet at the back!)

What you can’t see is the pain of the muscle stiffness and spasms, the difficulties with bladder and bowel, and the fatigue. My God, the fatigue. Yes, we all get dog tired at times, but this is on a different level.

My point is that unlike me many MS sufferers have all the invisible symptoms but outwardly appear to be perfectly well.

Managing MS in these difficult times is a challenge. Please spare a thought for MS sufferers if you can, amidst all the more immediate and life threatening concerns of Covid-19.

This is MS Week.

    Thank you, Kevin, for making people more aware of MS. You are so right : it can also be one of those invisible diseases that causes total havoc.
    Keep smiling, Matey 🙂

    Well said Kevin. A lot of people, me now included, really didn’t know the full impact of MS. I have another friend who has it but she has never really gone into detail about the symptoms and what you have to endure. I commend your spirit and wish you all the best for your safety in these challenging times. Good bless.
