But you don’t look sick!
Dealing with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and its symptoms is hard enough. I do not have a cane, walker, or wheel chair to confirm my MS. To some I don’t look sick. I do sometimes walk like a drunk, trip over nothing, and walk into walls. At this writing my MS is invisible. My invisible symptoms include numb and tingling hands and feet, balance, vision, and cognative issues.
I keep my MS diagnosis to myself. My close family and friends I trust know. When I do share my illness I am always told BUT YOU DON’T LOOK SICK! I have started taking this as a compliment instead of~ "Is there a certain way to look if I am sick?"
I can not run and skip around like I used to, but not many of us can when we are 50’ something. I can still remember after the birth of our twins, exercising to flatten my belly to what it once was. To this day I still work at it. But that is still a part of me just like my MS. It is part of my life. What has been given to me.
My dear readers ‘MS is not who I am, it is what I have’. A chronic illness without a cure, but there is RX therapy to help manage its progression.
My journey in life continues despite the obstacles I’ve encountered. Multiple Sclerosis has presented me with a different quality of life, but a life I would not change.

Stretching is a simple and all natural therapy for reduced range of motion and spasticity caused by MS.
Range of motion: 'The area through which a joint may normally be freely and painlessly moved, the range of flexion (the act of bending a limb) and extension of a joint.'
Stretching and range of motion exercises are important because they can alleviate some muscle spasticity.
Spasticity: 'Stiff, tight muscles and involuntary muscle contractions that are not coordinated with other muscles.
Stretching and exercise is a self-help option to ease symptoms.
A key activity that will help to prevent muscle cramp and spasms is stretching. Discover what causes muscle cramp, and preventing muscle cramps.

Pisces is the most considerate and compassionate sign out of all the signs of the zodiac. In keeping with those qualities, the Pisces woman is the one who is most willing and able to listen to other people’s problems and, who will offer endless support and comfort.
Born March 12, 1955 I have experienced the Pisces Woman side of me many times. I am very proud to say that 'I Am The Listener'. I have been known to drop what I am doing to listen to one of my children's dilemmas. I am not the Preacher but the Listener. I listen to what is being said and respond with support and comfort.
So Why Do I do What I Do? I have Multiple Sclerosis MS and want to offer support and comfort to others suffering from MS as well.
I have had people thank me for what I am providing on my website: MS MobilityStrength Multiple Sclerosis. I am grateful that I am able to reach out and touch so many people in need. But Why Do I Do What I Do? Here it is short and sweet! I know what my unique offering is, MS. Nobody can feel how I do. Others may have the resources, but they don't think like I do. And I am listening and responding to your needs about MS.

I can remember when I was younger laying on my stomach and touching my toes to my ears. How about Cartwheels? That was a must learn with the girls. Where did this flexibility and range of motion go? Yes age plays a role in this but also a chronic illness like Multiple Sclerosis MS will also. As we start living a more sedentary lifestyle, we will begin to lose strength in our muscles. Can you regain some of that flexibility, range of motion and strength? Yes you can! Using these '4 tips for improving your flexibility when you think you can't improve your flexibility'.

We recently had the opportunity to view the launching of Hot Air Balloons.
What team work it takes to get these Hot Air Balloons off the ground. And most important are the gentle breezes that lets them float through the skies into the horizon.
I was reflecting on this experience, and tho I would never (never say never) would hop into the basket of one of these Hot Air Balloons, it got me to thinking how we could imagine ourselves placing into these baskets our anger and pain we deal with on a daily basis from our chronic illness of Multiple Sclerosis MS, or any illness we endure on a daily basis.
I would place the fear of the unknown progression of Multiple Sclerosis in the basket and set it free! Each day I wake up to a new experience with my MS. I need to trust in the Lord for He knows what I can ultimately handle.
This is your basket! What would place in the basket to be set free? Press the arrow to play video and watch it be prepared to be set free!
