May is MS Awareness Month
What does MS research mean to me?
The biggest thing I deal with in my MS is pain. In my arms, legs, feet and my entire body. I'm trying to keep working but it seems to get harder and harder every month. My job isn't physical, but it's hard to concentrate when you're living with pain in every part of your body. I am on one of the MS drugs and have been for years. It helps, but I still have symptoms. I saw a story on Global a few weeks ago about a study at the U of A on pain and MS. I really hope something comes out of that, because that would vastly improve my quality of life. My employer is great and we've been able to work out a schedule that accommodates the comings and goings of my MS. I'm really thankful about that. But the rest of your life doesn't wait for your MS to get better or go away. Kids keep growing up and life keeps happening. That's what I want out of MS research – something that will help me deal with the pain I have been living with for the past 4 years.
