I am so ANGRY, and I don't do anger, I prefer PEACE. At Our xmas dinner my sister in law made a comment to me that still has me fuming. She said to me that the important thing is that I exercise and stay healthy. NO SH^*
Before MS I hiked slot canyons, repelled, fished....I was 130 lbs and always on the go. Now 180 lbs
Now every time my family sees me I'm on the couch watching t.v. I HATE T.V.
We have a complete weight room in our home and I have tried walking slowly on the treadmill. If I walk 20 minutes NOT only does it increase my cramping and leg spasms immediately, I pay for it for DAYS.
I even tried to entered a study at the University of Utah for exercise and M.S.
I had to double my pain Meds. Just to go to the xmas dinner.
They all think I'm just a lazy person.
Is there any way to get them to understand what life with M.S is really like?
