A pint of positivity!

"Happiness is like an orgasm, if you think about it too much it disappears" (courtesy of Tim Minchin)

We MSers have a cracking life all in all!

We have a condition that affects approximately 2.5 million people around the world (about 0.035% of the population if there are 7 billion of us....rough figures....forgive me for god sakes I've...


Time for a sharp scratch (or a small prick)

Posted by Muirie , 03 October 2013 · 526 views

Apologies to all of the MSers and even the normal folk for my lack of recent posts.

Basically been feeling a bit crap and have been rather busy workwise too.

Exciting events ahead though as I am going to beging stabbing myself soon. Not in an emo teenage sort of a way but in a making me feel a bit better MS kind of way.

I'm both chuffed and...


A change is as good as a rest (or a rest is a good change?)

I've done a bit of work today after a day yesterday involving a silly walk (not Monty Pythin style) and then an appointment in Birmingham (40 minute drive each way) at 8pm. I got home at 10pm.

So I got up at my set time which is 7.30am to get ready for my day ahead.

Morning all,

I was sort of diagnosed in 1998 then officially diagnosed in 2003 but my MS has pootled along nicely with the odd episode such as difficulty walking, fatigue, severe nerve pain but in general it's behaved....


Friends are what you need!

So today as the weather was dry it was time to undercoat and gloss our bay window at the front of our house. As I hate DIY of any kind I delayed the process but then decided it was time to get on with it....


Timetable to battle fatigue!

My frankly marvellous wife has created a timetable for me for my working week so I get work done, earn a crust and don't becoming shattered every single blooming day!

It has a cracking amount of rest in it but does have the downside of banning TV until lunch and evening. (I'm a shocking tv addict).

I've used it today and at 6.10pm I feel...

I have just checked my blog at joyofms.blogspot.co.uk and noticed that my post with the fewest views was titled "Happiness".

That made me laugh. I'm pretty sure us MSers are a jolly lot, maybe it's the "normal" folk who sun happiness?
