I hope you are as well as well can be!!!
I have been having some thoughtful moments recently and I don't really know where to turn, a couple of thoughts are on my mind and I wondered if anyone had any advice or comments on these.
Firstly, I am so much healthier in the sun, the cold and damp climate of UK plays havoc with neuropathic pain in my hands and nothing I have ever taken seems to relieve this. I am thinking of Spain in particular and I wondered if anyone has done anything similar and set an article about it. My main worry is not making the move but maintaining a lifestyle in another country as right now, I run a successful security installation business.
Secondly, the other thought on my mind is given that I am healthy, I only suffer neuropathic pain in my hands in the main, I would much rather not be running a successful security installation business and using my talents to help others less fortunate than me. Again though, maintaining a lifestyle, paying bills and eating and living isnt cheap but is there anything out there as a resource to focus your career more towards helping those like me instead of being a sales monkey!!!
What do you think of my thoughts guys!!!!
Any of you will know if you seen my introduction post the other day that I'm not currently diagnosed with MS, just have quite a few unexplained symptoms that has lead me here.
Tried to make a routine phone call tonight to set up car insurance for my husband, admittedly I did have 3 kids getting louder and louder in the back ground (one has Aspergers and ADHD so mad house if you didn't catch my earlier post) but the call was just unbearable! I kept saying the wrong words, not even relevant words! Couldn't remember hubby's date of birth (Been together 17 years!) Could tell the guy was puzzled by the way I was talking, he was really nice and kept trying to make a light joke or finish what I was trying to say, but it was just awful! I'm not normally like that at all, I've been self employed for the last 3 years, retail management before that so well used to talking on the phone. When the call finally ended I just burst into tears, I just felt so 'not' in control of what I was saying.
I am going to see my GP next week but just wondered if any of you have speech effected by MS and if so in what way?
Thanks. Sharon. x
Since joining this forum (3-4 days ago?!) I decided to make a major change on the computer. :computer:
In my Outlook Express "Favourites" I had a folder called "Disability" :sad:
Have just changed that name to ABILITY. It's amazing the difference it's made
