The Summer Heat

The Summer Heat

In Brooke’s latest comic, she shows how each summer month feels like sitting in a progressively hotter pot of water until she reaches the boiling point in August. Temperature is a trigger for many people with MS, so finding ways to stay cool is extremely important. How do you manage summer heat?

    So sorry for the missing of an important time with your son. I have had MS from when my son was 3. We have had had great times and not so great times. But as he has lived with this most of his life he understands more then most. At 22 years old when we were out walking and I pushed it to far he was the one that said mom, lean on me we just did to much today. As he helped me get up a flight of stairs, he kept saying I am so sorry mom, just let me help you. We are there with love, that’s what they need. Cheers Tracy hope today is a better one. Happy Fathers Day.

    I especially felt this today at my son’s soccer practice this morning. It was supposed to be a great day, but little did I know that my eyes would cross and all this last round of symptoms that I’ve worked so hard to defeat would show up again. Ah well. C’est la vie.
