A lot of people with Multiple Sclerosis are somewhat shy about it, they want to hide it. Now in some cases that is OK and some people would even say that it is the right thing to do in certain cases but when it comes to your individual life you should not be shy! It is amazing what talking to others with MS can do for you! I would not be doing as well as I am today if it was not for the many other MS friends I have made online.
Well I had mentioned in the group the other day how I missed bowling and everyone said I should go so today I did. My friend took me down for the purpose of hanging out and having some fun so I appreciate that however, I kind of had an emotional moment. Today I realized that trying to bowl is now pushing my limits… I have bowled several times since I was diagnosed and sure I may not have been as good as I used to be but I was still OK at it and I didn’t feel like I was pushing myself too far. This time I sucked at it compared to how I used to bowl and after just 2 games I was exhausted and in pain. My fingers, my forearms, my elbows, and my shoulders. Even my legs got a few shooting pains here and there. I took a Norco a while ago but it’s not doing anything.
I would now like to introduce my good friend Kane from New Zealand who is also battling Multiple Sclerosis. He runs a VLOG on Youtube which you can find by clicking HERE. For this edition of MS friends I will be playing one of his first videos from youtube where he will introduce himself and talk a bit about his MS. Be sure to check out his latest video by visiting Kane’s Youtube Chanel because as you may now, MS can change on a daily basis! So please give a warm welcome to Kane!
It went well! I was holding off to do this post to see if I could get a quick clip but I couldn’t so sorry for the wait. Anyways, I will do a Pt. 2 to this posting once I do get a hold of that video clip so for now let me just tell you how it went.
