Fighting an MS Relapse


They say moving, beginning and changing jobs are three of the most stressful things a person can go through. We all know stress causes multiple sclerosis to relapse. After that logging truck nearly clobbered me on the highway last month I have been fighting off a relapse. Add to that beginning a new job and then leaving it because we are moving to the mix and the ingredients are ripe for an MS set back. Balancing out each day warding off the relapse is like tightrope walking. I find myself tippy-toeing through our last days in Alaska.
