Living with MS at age 56

For me with my MS I have found that exercising helps a lot.

I live in Omaha Nebraska and I am very fortunate to have a personal trainer Corey Gill. He helps me strengthen my core which is key to MS patients. It helps with my balance. On the days that I have severe fatigue Corey will give me a workout that I can do at home in the air conditioning.

I find that it really helps to have someone there to motivate me but also Corey has had 4 strokes himself so he knows the side of the fatigue and lack of energy and the weakness. It helps me to keep moving.

I also have found for me, music really helps me stay calm and focused but most importantly the key is communication with your family and your doctors. They can't help you if you don't let them.
