It may not relate to this weeks topic but I wanted to see how others recover. I went to the beach on a ladies trip. My MS medication doesn’t allow me to get into the sun. It cause skin cancer. And I turn purple anyway. Also, I was fortunate enough to have homework from a new graduate program to work on while the others were at the beac. It was very exhausting though. After tanning they’d all wants to eat dinner out, shop and have a coffee and dessert at 9/10 pm. It was only a short trip, but very exhausting. I must also admit, I was embarrassed by how often I had to go to the ladies room. It wa the first time I’ve gone on a trip with a group of people in ten years or so. I must admit that time to time I felt guilty not being able to participate and not having the energy to keep up with the others. Now I’m home and exhausted. It’s embarrassing really that I cannot be “normal” in a social setting, always looking for a bathroom and wetting to leave a place early. Then there’s the week of recovery after only three days away from home. MS is madding in this way. For once, I would just like to be normal.
