What does your MS feel like?

Hi all,

Today is a good day. Elephant Journal published a blog of mine, describing how my MS symptoms feel.

I know we all experience MS in different ways. But I’m hoping it helps those without MS or another chronic disease to understand.

I’d love it if you shared your experiences, and let me know if yours are anything like mine.

This is how I would describe living with MS:

I havent sat down and written about my MS – i guess because it is still all sinking in. Originally my MS nurse said not to keep a diary. Others said I should. I am nearly at the point where I NEED to write about how I feel. I recently saw a therapist (about other things) and he told me that writing is not only cathartic, but also let us realise our experiences.

So, my plan is to start tomorrow. If tomorrow turns out to actually be tomorrow!

Thank you for posting your blog sites, as they were both really good to read. 🙂

@tiggermum – I’m glad you enjoyed reading my blog. Believe me when you start to write down everything, it feels a lot better
