MS symptoms: MS Patient Burns Hand with Iron

StopSpeaking of burns, I once burned my hand with the steaming water of an iron. Cognitive difficulties resulted in a period of unusual reasoning ability. With one hand controlling the material and the other holding an iron, I decided to determine its temperature by raising it close to my face. I was at the quilt shop and my friend saw me just in time causing her to scream, “STOP!” I stopped suddenly causing the faulty iron to overflow water onto my wrist and hand. That injury can go down in the books as one of my oddest stories.
