    Default Aging With MS

    My latest article on "Aging with MS" can now be found online at either of these two links and will appear in tomorrow's "MS Views and News" weekly newsletter. The writing of this article came out of a "Town Hall Meeting" sponsored by the International Organization of MS Nurses that I attended last week.

    Thanks for the useful article. Aging people are so often treated as if their age doesn't matter, when some adjustments in medicine dosage are definitely called for, quite often, and changes in the aging body need to be kept in mind.

    This is one of the main reasons for me writing this agate. I just believe that not only should our awareness be raised but that of our health care team as well.

    Well, I'm aging with MS and here to tell you, that it's not for sissies. But, It's doable, with a little help from Fam and Friends.

    Ditto what Sally said.

    And sometimes we have to make sure our medical caregivers realize that our bodies aren't just exactly like what they were when we were 20 or 30.
