We live by the numbers. Or so it seems.
Apparently the number-crunchers do studies & collect statistics on every crazy, conceiveable thing you can imagine.
Those of us with multiple sclerosis aren’t exempt from the studies either.
Did you know…..
85% of people are diagnosed with relapsing-remitting MS at onset.
And of those…
50% with RRMS will transition to secondary-progressive MS within a decade of diagnosis.
Well here at My Odd Sock, we (I) have conducted our own (my own) extensive research study on how MS affects our lives. Here are the results.
will find the toilet lid down when you have to pee the most.
will find an open disabled parking space at the mall.
will re-read several pages of a book before realizing you read it the day before.
of clumsy MSers will drop the soap in the shower.
will leave the doctor’s office with more questions than when you went in.
will choose the grocery shopping cart with the squeaky wheel.
will need a push getting their wheelchair/scooter over the large bump of the “handicap-accessible” curb.
will be embarrassed by an unzipped zipper or unbuttoned button because you have no sensation.
MSers who reach their yearly insurance deductible before the end of February.
People who donate to a charity then tire of the charity’s relentless requests to donate more.
will wear the same clothes two days in a row because “I didn’t do anything to get them dirty!”
Rollator users who need to empty trash they’ve collected in the basket under the seat.
will forget whose number you just dialed.
MSers have leg spasms so often they count on a FitBit.
know they are wasting their time reading My Odd Sock.
The studies don’t lie. OK maybe mine does a tad.
Defy all stats and make this your best day ever!
