Snow Treatment for MS – I Love the Cold!


Well, it’s that time of the year so today I took a day trip up to Big Bear with my friend Cyndi! It was so nice up there! It wasn’t too cold but there was still tuns of fresh snow everywhere! The air was clean, no breeze, and it was dead silent, pure peace, and for someone like me who is sensitive to the heat, paradise. I felt so good up there I wish I could have stayed in that location and time for ever! I think the snow is my favorite form of MS treatment there is!

I’m not kidding, I felt wonderful up there! I felt… HEALTHY. I had energy, I was not in pain, I felt strong, I just felt great! I felt like I could breath and be myself! I don’t know if it was the trees, the clean air, the cold weather, or a little bit of it all! Mountain Magic! I love it! Of course as soon as I came back down to reality my symptoms all settled back in so there must be something to it besides the elevation difference! I know that one day when I can afford it, the mountains will be my home because up there I feel healthy and that makes me happy. I can’t wait for it!

By the way, sorry I have not been writing too often, I am focusing a lot of my attention on my new photography blog. I have not officially launched it yet but you can find it by visiting

So if you have a digital SLR or know anyone who does that would like to learn a little bit more about how to use it or simply be creatively inspired tell them to check it out and like it on Facebook! Thanks!

  1. I've never seen snow in real life, where I live in Australia it doesn't snow. I love the look of it though, and right now, snow would be fantastic. It's about 35 degrees celsius outside at the moment, too,too hot!

    I have Scelroderma in addition to my MS. As it is if I just feel cold say in the freezer section of the store, my hands turn blue. Handling snow turns my hands white and I cant feel or move them. It's a weird place to be, the heat sets me back – the cold sets me back. My health has the whole year covered.
    It's nice that you love it though – it's good to see you with your smile back!

    Haha man, that sucks! Lots of people seem to be that way though, cold screws with them too! It normally makes me feel good, once it gave me pins and needles, could have been something else but it was cold out so that's what I associated it with haha!
