    Default MS Society video for MS Awareness Month

    You've probably been getting e-mails about how March is MS Awareness Month (unless you live in several parts of the world where May or some other month is MS Awareness Month). Since everyone here is entirely too aware of MS, I don't know if we need to mention it, but the MS Society has produced a video about MS.

    Thumbs up

    That was very emotional for each of them to do. I liked that they showed people that could stand, and some that had to use a wheelchair. But all could give a big smile as they fight this disease.

    I thought it was excellent. It's a difficult disorder to make understandable to other people as we all have found out.

    Thanks Agate
    I thought it was excellent too. Interesting people with MS. It was clear that MS was seriously effecting their lives but it was also clear that they had lives independent of their MS.

    Me too! That marathon-running and mountain-climbing crowd is unreal. I even wonder if the drug companies make those people up, though I do recall that one woman with MS who runs even though she always collapses at the end. She was real enough.

    Does anyone know how she's doing? I can't recall her name.

    I remember her too, however if I even try to walk fast my feet get all tangled up in each other and I trip - and that's just walking.

    Cool

    The first time I discovered I couldn't run, we had eaten at a restaurant, and my grandniece and I had left while my sister paid the bill, and as soon as we had stepped out the door, my little grandniece (about 4) took off running. I was so afraid she would dart out in front of a car.

    I yelled her name, and tried to run after her, and I'm sure I was quite comical looking trying to run. I didn't have control over any part of my body. How I didn't fall was nothing short of a miracle. I caught her and she was okay, but it took a while for it to sink in that I couldn't run anymore.
