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.
