“Give your stress wings and let it fly away.” ~Terri Guillemets
NOTE: I am not talking about symptoms of MS that may cause you stress, such as balance, numbness or optic neuritis. That is a different type of stress that we deal with. Here I am attempting to illustrate basic, everyday stress that may cause symptoms of MS to flare, and how I personally deal with them.
“Good health and good sense are two of life's greatest blessings.” ~Publilius Syrus
Today it is cold and rainy outside. I am sitting in the library with my fleece jacket on because I am chilled. I have a lot of work to get done today, not to mention several errands to run. I have a lot on my mind. Am I any different than any of you? No, of course not! In this fast-paced world we live in, we all have to multitask all day long while trying to keep a good thought in our heads to keep us sane and healthy. At the end of the day I try to manage my stress when I can, and always, ALWAYS, count my blessings (which are many). Do you do the same?
