Things I have learned from MS

  • If you have dexterity issues don't buy blouses or trousers with buttons
  • If you have balance issues sit down to put on underwear, trousers, socks and shoes
  • If your right hand lacks strength, hold the glass of red wine (cup of coffee, etc.) in your left hand
  • Never let go of your crutches on an escalator
  • If it is there, always take the lift
  • Always know where the toilets are
  • Embrace technology and social media; if you are stuck in bed it will keep you sane
  • Listen to your body, when it tells you enough then it is time to stop
  • When help is offered, accept gracefully and with thanks
