Lucky Girl

I constantly see a lot of posts about lack of support for some people with MS. I guess I've been very lucky, my family and friends have been nothing but supportive. I think it's very important for people in our lives to be educated about MS and the effects can have on someone.

Someone can look perfectly fine, but could be having muscle spasms and pain, that they just aren't calling attention to.

The most important part, in my opinion, is trying to keep the persons stress level as low as possible. Also family and friends understanding that. It's not always possible,
but I have found cutting out negative people or situations have helped a lot.

I don't think I would have been able to get through this far without the support system I have. And also knowing the people I don't talk to everyday, or for a while, sometimes give me the space I need. And still love and support me regardless!

I'm a very lucky girl.

My little bit of everything this week:

  1. Thank you for posting. I agree about keeping a low stress level I see now how little things that used to not wear on me so much now have a heavier and longer hold. And getting the negative people or situations out of life is so helpful. That's wise advice.

    I'm glad you have a strong support team of family and friends.
