  1. I have an answer which may be different from yours, hot weather gives me anxiety, making me aware time has passed without a way for me to improve my situation.

    1. I totally get you !

  2. Does turtle mean anything to anyone? Yup that's me. Everything is sllloooowwww motion and I'm tired as hell. I feel like a sloths that needs sleep for a month. Legs feel like rubber bands sometimes.

      I can so relate...and love the idea of an audio version!
      In the meantime, I wish you all the best as you find the strength to "tackle it". Doreen (Team Member)

    2. same

  3. The heat makes me feel sluggish - my arm & legs feel heavy, making it difficult to do things outside.

    1. I feel you on that one Florida reached a 100 last week

    2. appreciate your cold statement. My son and his family live in Finland and have offered for me to live there. I just can't! Have visited but find the climate hard to deal with.

  4. Living in Texas with MS is a struggle. I'm limited to outdoor activities, which often leaves me feeling excluded. When I get overheated my entire body feels like a wet noodle, my speech gets slurred & my thought process is out to lunch.

    1. Texas always represents although I wish NASA Houston would steer our planet away from the killing sun. Maybe then my reputation for MIA outside would change.

      Wouldn't that be great?
      Thanks for joining the conversation and stay cool out there in Texas. ~Doreen (Team Member)
