Saw an acquaintance earlier today “how’s your ms?” She said. “I’m not too bad thanks” I replied - not because I was feeling wonderful or anywhere near ‘normal’ (whatever that is), but just because people don’t really want to know how u r and it’s just a shorthand type of answer that enables the conversation to move on! Anyway she then went on to tell me that she has a neighbour with ms - “the sort that comes and goes. She gone to Egypt for a couple of weeks cause the sunshine is good for her. The vitamin D makes her better you know”!!! Well I kind of know what she means, and I understand that people don’t really understand what it’s like… But wouldn’t we love it if this beast really did " come and go" an vit d really did “make us better” ? If only it was that simple huh?
