As a MSer, I’m not one for change. Change brings uncertainty, anxiety and undue stress that my tattered nerves don’t need. But this change in season, I welcome.
I LOVE fall. And so does my multiple sclerosis. Cooler temps. Tolerable humidity. And stable barometric pressure that isn’t bouncing up and down like a super-ball off a tile floor. (All factors that give MS a tizzy-fit.)
That is why I am so happy for fall. Fall makes me feel alive. Refreshed. Renewed.
Extinct energy levels reappear. Thoughts clear. Eyes focus.
A collective “Phew!” can be heard and felt.
Who knows. Whether it’s psychological, physiological or even pathological, fall is the change I need. You too?
Whatever the change in season means to you, take it as a fresh start. Do something different to improve both you and your MS. Shake it up. Throw MS a curveball. Move. Stretch. Read a book. Do math problems. (Yeah, you heard me.) Make your body and brain do something it hasn’t done in a while. Clear away those cobwebs.
You have a whole new season to enjoy. Don’t waste a moment!
