BECAUSE OF MS FATIGUE: LEARNING TO LET OTHERS HELP IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ADJUSTMENTS YOU CAN MAKE

HERE'S A FEW OF MY MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS TIPS FROM BONNY SCOTLAND FOR YOU!

Hi everyone my name is Mary and I live in bonny Scotland where the ducks love it as there is rain, rain and more rain.

My nickname is Mayjay which I like to be known as.

Whether you’ve recently been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) or you’re caring for someone with MS, you’re not alone in your MS journey.

I find it can help to have a loved one or friend with you when speaking to the MS doctor as it can be a lot to take in.

Don’t delay MS treatment after receiving a multiple sclerosis diagnosis, it’s important to start MS treatment as soon as possible. There are now number of FDA-approved medications that have
been shown to “modify” or slow down the progression of MS and lessen the frequency and severity on MS attacks your doctor will go through what they thinks best treatment for you. Keep track of your MS symptoms. Keep a record of your MS symptoms and how you are feeling will help your doctor determine how your MS is progressing and weather the medications you are taking are working. This will also help your doctor recognize a relapse, which is a characterized by a worsening of previous symptoms or the appearance of a new symptom that lasts more the 24 hours. You’re not alone let others help.

I used to feel ashamed and embarrassed to admit my disability

I have not had any training just write from my heart or my experiences that I have in my life. I am writing this for my 1st column on www.MSnewsChannel.com I just love you Stan & the angels giving each other love & support sharing what happening in our life's through the good times & the bad times & taking the time to comment on each other post. The angels are all just amazing. I first heard of the MSnewsChannel on your FB page Stan & took a look. It looks very good & I recognize some of the angels face's which is nice.

I was diagnosed with dyslexia & I have problems with spelling & that but I can read well. I
find that the computer helps me with my spelling so I can write. I used to feel ashamed and embarrassed to admit my disability from being a young child because of the stigma associated with learning disabilities & the name calling & the signs they would make with their hands saying dolly from other children they can be so cure sometimes & as I got older I got very good hiding the fact that I have dyslexia even now some people don't know as I feel too ashamed & embarrassed to admit that I have dyslexia & I know that some people can think of me differently if they found out.

Well am off to do some house work
love Mayjay
