Progress Update: Bad Idea – How Heat is BAD for MS

So today I pushed the limits of my heat tolerance… My dad was doing some cleaning on the side of the house where I had left two large particleboard sheets that I bought as backdrops for my photography as they were meant to look like brick. They got left out in the rain which basically melted the particleboard which is pretty much just really thick cardboard. The boards became warped so I figured I would just toss them out… They were no longer any good.

Q&A : Occupational Therapy Student Questions

multiple sclerosis ms q&a question answer

A student from Saint Louis University recently emailed me asking if I would participate in a kind of Q&A and I of course said yes! She is going to school to become an occupational therapist, an important roll in the health care industry for many patients including people with Multiple Sclerosis. An occupational therapist works with patients to help them learn how to resume their daily activities or “occupations” with their disability allowing that patient to hopefully maintain a sense of independence . For example, and occupational therapist might help me learn how to compensate for my loss of fine motor control by teaching me various exercises that pertain to my particular daily activities and my particular disability.
