Liar, Liar Pants on Fire

liar-liar2Most MS patients can probably relate to being called a liar. It happened to me in my youth during my first attacks and early days of diagnosis in my 20s. It has happened to others over the centuries. In fact, it has happened so often multiple sclerosis was once dubbed, “The Liar’s Disease.” So for the benefit of those reading whom are wondering if their loved one could really walk with a limp in the morning, no limp in the afternoon and then be limping again before dinner, the answer is yes. This morning I could not see well enough to read my phone. As the day progressed my vision cleared up but I knew all too well it would likely become blurry once again by evening.
