Why am I calling MSers badgers? Well, because badgers, or more specifically honey badgers, are thought of as one of the fiercest animals in the world. They will fight for food, territory and escape. We may not be fighting for food or territory, but we are fighting to escape, escape from the confines of our disease and the limits and restraints it puts on us. Whether we want to be or not, we are all MS fighters! Fighting to stay walking, upright or simply breathing each and every day. Honey badgers are also viewed as strong and tough. Which are traits that all MSers have every day while enduring our MS life challenges, which may be disability, pain, brain fog, fatigue, or the multitude of other MS issues. If this animal is not a perfect description of an MSer, I don’t know what is.
This blog is meant to be a discussion blog. Which means I will post a different question about an MS situations that many of us face and then answer it for myself and then leave the comments section open for others to answer for themselves. Most of my answers to the questions won’t be pretty, especially having to do with my bladder issues, but I am hoping that my honesty may help others to be honest about their issues and what they are doing make it better or ask for ideas to make it better. This is a communal site where we are all here to help each other.
Since MS is like a snowflake and everyone experiences different issues, I may not have any experience with some symptoms, such as pain, but I still want this to be a discussion that may be beneficial to others who do have these symptoms so I may still have this as a topic. Also, if you have something specific you want group input about, please send it through the Contact Me tab and I will try to list it as a topic.
Best wishes to everyone who reads this and I hope all the best for you. Read on for beneficial ideas, tips, or just someone who can relate to what you are going through with MS.
