March MS Awareness Month Madness

March MS Awareness Month Madness

 

I’m going to phone this one in and re-run an older My Odd Sock.  (You probably forgot about this one anyway!)

 

 MS MarchThe month of March is widely recognized for two exciting events.

March is not only known for being “MS Awareness Month, but also the time of

March Madnessyear for the NCAA basketball Championships.

 

Thus, with another preposterous idea, My Odd Sock proposes combining the two popular activities into one, big mega-event!

 

 

 

 

We take you now to………..

Hello everyone!  My Odd Sock reporting live from “March MS Awareness Month Madness.”

We have narrowed the field from a competitive 64 MS symptoms…down to the “Sweet 16.”

 

 

 

"Sweet 16" MS symptoms
"Sweet 16" MS symptoms

 

 

The number one seed, Pain promises to be a constant threat to an MSer’s comfort.

But don’t count out the number two seed, Spasticity…especially in those early morning game situations!

Foot Drop steps in as the number three seed, followed by the messy number four seed, Bowel/Bladder Control…..

 

 

 

 

Obama bracket

 

It is a big, BIG event!

Here is President Obama filling out his bracket.

 

 

 

 

…Rounding out the rest of the Sweet 16, we have Muscle Weakness at five.  Gait stumbles in at number six.  Poor Balance, seven.  Vision, the eighth seed.  Cognitive Issues at nine.  While Restless Sleep slumbers in as the number ten seed.

Depression is 11.  Numbness, 12.  Heat Intolerance warms up as the 13th seed.  Slurred Speech, 14.  Newcomer Fumble Fingers checks in at 15.  And Leg Spasms rounds out the remaining field of 16.

 

 

With insight on the competition, let’s check in with “Mr. March”…Dickie V…

…THANKS SOCK!  IT’S A SWEET, SWEET 16 BABY!  THE SYMPTOMS ARE RUTHLESS!
I SEE A WELL-ROUNDED BRACKET WITH EACH SEED BRINGING THEIR BEST TO THE MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS BUFFET TABLE!

LOOKING PAST THE TOP SEEDS, I SEE GAIT SITTING THERE AT NUMBER SIX AS A REAL SPOILER BAY-BEE!  DON’T LET POOR BALANCE FOOL YA EITHER–IT SHOULD EASILY ADVANCE TO THE ELITE EIGHT!

IT’S GONNA BE A SHOWDOWN NO DOUBT, SO LOCK THE BRAKES ON YOUR WHEELCHAIR AND SETTLE IN!  BACK TO YOU, SOCK!…..

 

Thanks Dickie V.
