MS has started to limit my life. I loved dancing, camping, fishing, and many other activities that I am unable to do now. Although my life is changing, I still thank God for all the blessings that I have!!
I am voicing this complaint
for all of us who cannot deal with this type of weather.Not only is it uncomfortable, it hurts!My legs, arms and hands are buzzing like
crazy.My face feels like it is on fire
even in front of the a/c.My back is
aching and burning.
My main complaint is the
fatigue, which gets much worse in hot weather…………and this weather is not just
hot, it is ridiculously hot.I am protesting!!I can hardly drag one foot in front of the
other and when I sit down it is all I can do to get up.
I would like to point
something else out also.Researchers
from the Kessler Foundation, with funding from the National MS Society and the
National Institutes of Health, conducted a study comparing cognitive functioning
in different temperature conditions in 40 people with MS and 40 people without
MS. The data showed that people with MS scored 70 percent worse on tests of
memory and processing speed during hot days, while people without MS scored the
same during hot and cool days.Are you
Ah for the cool days of Fall………..or
the cold days of Winter…..I dream of these days……being able to walk outside a
while; being able to plan on going out without rushing to the car out of the
heat; being able to think about going on a short trip and do some shopping;
being able to THINK PERIOD!!!
Just wanted you to know how
I feel.Otherwise, I appreciate all the
work you do and the great job you do with the forecast. But, I would appreciate your changing the forecast
to a much lower temperature in the very near future.
