Having multiple sclerosis isn’t difficult if you simply use a little common sense.
To give you some healthy guidelines, My Odd Sock has created the list of “MS Dos And Don’ts.”
Let’s get busy, shall we…..
DO be aware of your bladder. Accidents happen.
DON’T tether yourself to the toilet.
DO remain active. Exercise is important in the fight against MS.
DON’T use the exercise bike as a laundry rack.
DO make a point to be on time for doctors appointments.
DON’T make the doctor late for his 3:15 tee time.
DO get a disabled parking placard for shopping convenience.
DON’T sell your placard on the black market.
DO wear a cooling vest during Summer’s warmer temperatures.
DON’T try to stay comfortable wearing less clothing.
DO keep your body hydrated by drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water each day.
DON’T drink it all at once.
DO participate in an approved disease modifying treatment program.
DON’T use the syringes for a game of darts.
DO be aware of MS-related leg tremors. Alert your doctor of any changes.
DON’T rely on your leg tremors at dinner to shake the bottle of salad dressing.
DO keep important items like hand disinfectant & tissues in the basket of a rollator.
DON’T use the rollator basket to chill your adult beverages.
Finally, DO remain positive. Stay active & engaged.
DON’T give up and don’t withdraw. You are bigger than the MS we fight.
