Stress and Multiple Sclerosis

Now I know there are different levels of stress, an infantryman on patrol in Afghanistan will suffer a different stress to me, but to me my stress affects my MS big time. Take this morning the postman arrived with a letter saying a direct debit I had set up had gone wrong. So a stressful call to the bank, then my neighbour knocks the door and then a phone call to BT plus the mobile going three or four times in the middle of all this. So all the time my stress levels are rising and it results in my body saying enough is enough and when I went past the level it wanted to operate at my legs went into spasm and then wouldn't bend. Time to stop and take stock hence I am now sitting here in the wheelchair with a cup of tea watching Wimbledon.. If I dont learn to stop and slow down the world wont care if I end up in bed unable to move so it is down to me to say NO. I hope you can handle stress better than I do and recognise when to say enough is enough andd sit down and take a rest, I am slowly learning, I still think I am 21 (I wish)

Been out in the sunshine

Yep I know that the summer has been missing but today the sun shone and I made the most of it. We headed out and grabbed a bacon sarnie and coffee at the nature reserve at Pegwell Bay and then headed on to Sandwich where we had a walk well I was pushed in the wheelchair but you know what I mean dont you? It was nice to be out after so long in doors but I am knackered now and will sleep sound tonight. I hope you are all enjoying the nice weather.Forward notice of a Country fair and VW Festival 26th 27th 28th July at Chilli Farm Dover

I am back in circulation

Sorry I have not posted much recently but I have been in Hospital but I am back now. I am on some new tablets for my MS they are to help with my movement. My legs get so stiff and at times I am unable to bend my knees so these new tablets are muscle relaxants. I must say that my legs are almost behaving themselves. My Multiple Sclerosis is the primary progressive variety and I never get any respite episodes, so anything to make life easier is gratefully accepted.
