MS Hug

Today has been one of my challenging days. I woke up sore, which isn’t unusual for me. I went to work and after sitting down for a little while I realized this soreness, or I should say pain wasn’t exercise related. It was an unfriendly MS Hug. What is a MS Hug? It is like wearing a two sizes too small girdle for 16 hours and being unable to release yourself. Needless to say I am home laying down. Today, standing, sitting, and moving was work. Walking was difficult, sitting was uncomfortable, and standing just flat out hurt. But I refuse to allow myself to feel defeated. My saying is, ” I have MS it doesn’t have me!” I mean that. This chronic illness doesn’t have control over me. It may slow me down from time to time, but I’ve got it beat. 

Tomorrow is a new day and prayerfully I will awaken without this agonizing pain.One thing is for sure I will be at work and rpf tomorrow night. It doesn’t matter if I am in pain or not. I usually grin and bear it, unless it’s too severe for me. Usually, I keep it to myself if I’m really hurting, but those in my circle know and keep me accountable for my health. I decided to take a  moment and educate a few people about this silent illness and how someone may look fine on the  outside  but really be hurting on the inside.

  1. No one wants the MS Hug, it isn’t friendly! Your post was very uplifting and great to read. I have been battling MS for 16 years and just started my blog a little over a month ago. It has been a great experience being able to connect with others that understand. I look forward to reading more of your posts. Keep up the great work and take care!!!
