Holiday sunshine

Hi guys I have just been for my first abroad holiday in ten years (our choice – not because of anything other than family and pets), and feel less stressed, anxious etc, BUT I feel wiped out.

We walked a bit (we were in Italy in the Dolomites) and the higher altitude didnt affect me at all, in fact I felt better. The sunshine was lovely and the warmth brilliant.

Since getting home though, I am tired, feel exhausted and need to push myself to keep doing the normal every day things needed.

Would you say this is MS related? Or post-holiday issues? Anyone any comments?

All sounds very familiar! Now I’m retired, I go away a lot and there’s always a post-holiday recuperation period. I’m just back from nine days’ touring (I did all the driving) and sightseeing and I reckon it’ll take me a week to get over it, maybe more. Long flights really do me in – last one took me three weeks to recoup function. Still like the holidays, though! All worth it. xx

I feel this from coming back from a warm country normally after 2 weeks. I like the sun more than a lot of other m.s sufferers do, so believe this to be a short lived boost for myself, but what a boost.

Sunshine makes you happy, hot temperatures may not. You can get the benefits of sunshine in loads of places in Northern Europe without long plane rides and debilitating high temperatures – just do some research on the web and keep traveling in comfort.
