summer is doing its worst on me this year. fell flat in the street, not sure where i am at times, numb, pain, tired, angry. i ask friends for help, but always seems they have something else to do. i'm afraid to go anywhere alone should i fall or lose cognitive functions. was close to tipping over in grocery yesterday. don't know if i'm having a full exasperation, but naming doesn't matter when you just feel you're ms-ing at times. getting major hot flashes w/pouring sweat, but way done with the femopause stuff. getting ants walking over both arms and hands, which is something new. usually just legs acting up. .... whew! needed to vent! but at times we just need to talk to someone who understands about ms and how frustrating/degrading it can make you feel. linda

i know how it is, about asking for help. When i was diagnosed 2 months ago, everyone was trying to help me with everything. Now my upper body is getting its butt kicked by the ms, and all my friends/family seem to forget i need an extra hand. It definately helps talking to others who understand what your going through (exception of female stuff). I dont know what to say as im still new to this. Frustrating yes i completly agree. You shouldn't feel degraded by something you have no control over, i hope you feel better soon, especially when it gets cooler outside. Try to stay positive. When i get upset and stressed i noticed my symptoms definately get worse. Some poker playing old guy at the casino told me, "you have to make the best out of the cards your dealt". I though that meant bluffing lol, but now i understand what he meant.

Hi wow I know Summer is a hard time for most people. I live in Florida and it is hot hot hot. Whenever I have to go somewhere I hate to get out of the car and shut it off. This is the place to vent because we all care about you and hope an easier day is ahead. It must be so hard be afraid to go somewhere. I wish there was a group of newer diagnosed MS people who could help those that need more help now. I wish I could take you shopping.

florida??? and MS!!! you must be able to wring yourself out daily! couldn't imagine how much heat you're experiencing! i'm in new jersey which is bad, but know from virginia south is a lot worse. i have turned to rita's water ice (italian ice) to cool from the inside out. seems to help plus tastes good. linda

I just posted a post on falling. I was just looking down thru/through and decided to check your post. Oh wow, I know how you feel with falling and heat. Alot of us here do I'm sure. I live in Pennsylvania and the humidity is crazy today. Florida has to be totally unbearable year round. I was in Florida a couple years ago and I could hardly stand it. Just know I hope you find some relief.
