Yes I do get days when I just want to get away when I could still drive i would get in car and go for a few hours to calm down but now I don’t have many days like that which is a good job because I only could get Away with my bike trike it’s not quite the same! think it normal to feel like that i feel better when I’ve talked about it

@adele_barrow , unfortunately, MS life can be a rollercoaster. You can feel optimistic and buoyed up for the day, then MS can come along and trip you up, sometimes literally, and completely deflate you.

its so nice to have a rant and people send nice comments back i don’t like saying to much to people as I don’t want them to think I’m sympathy seeking and thinking im making it out to be worse then it is , we are all in the same boat with this so we understand more , i think sometimes I’m running on auto piolate xx

Sometimes I get in a funk and I can think no good thought or anything that I would like to do. It helps if I keep a list handy of fun projects or activities that I want to do and pick something from that to get going again. Sometimes it is just a call to an old friend that always seems to pick me up.

I remember when my daughter was young and she would wake up in a bad mood and I’d tell her the same thing my mom told me…some days are just going to be like that…and then we bought this book during one of her school book sales and when I’m having a bad day I chuckle as I think back to this book and found they put it in cartoon form on You Tube…just for me ;-0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6HhKlpp7ok

Or you could look up the song “Tomorrow” from Annie or “Somewhere over the Rainbow” from the Wizard of Oz…some days it takes all three 😉

@adele_barrow there has been a lot of rubbish during lockdown about people clearing their clutter and making their houses and lives perfect. Don’t believe half of it ! Hang out with your children and make the most of every moment that feels good.
A tidy house is no achievement in the great scheme of things. Don’t be so hard on yourself.
I would say this even if you didn’t have MS…
but you do. You are awesome and don’t you forget it!

@adele_barrow , what other people think is their problem! Don’t let them concern you as you have no control over what they think!

Unleash those shackles………..
