March is MS Awareness Month 

How much do you know about MS?

I decided with it being MS Awareness Month I would share a great website I follow it’s called Positive Living With MS by Penelope Conway the link is below. Penelope has some great facts, advice and info on MS some of which I have used below. MS effects everyone differently and I relate to most of these at one time or another, sometimes simultaneously!

Today is the first day of MS awareness month and I feel proud that I am posting this on the first day, now it’s time for a nap….it’s 7:48am and I’ve been up since 4am ahh the joys of MS.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this information! Living in Colorado with its high rate of MS and having a sister-in-law with the disease, I am all too familiar with this disabling ailment and it’s many evil faces. Here’s hoping your experiences with it are never too severe.

    • Thank you for the comment. Today was a horrible day which I will be blogging about in a bit. MS is a terrible disease. Canada has the highest rate of MS with over 100,000 people suffering with it. I see Colorado has a high rate too:(

      • It seems to go hand in hand with northern latitudes. I’m so sorry you’re having a rough go. Education is critical so that everyone learns how to function and handle this terrible disease. Healing thoughts flowing your way. ~ ღonika & Sam 🐾
