After forgetting the extra stuff out of the freezer to accomodate our guest at tonights dinner table, I quickly nipped to Asda to get what I needed. Not good getting stuck behind two people pushing trolleys side by side in the refridgeration section!! I could feel my legs turning cold very quick as were my hands. When I’d finally got what I wanted I could feel neither my legs or my hands and inturn they had gone white (as I also have Raynauds) :frowning: I saw them come towards me obviously on a mission and not moving for no one so I stepped aside and totally lost my balance and got a bit of a wobble on, when I heard the young woman say to her other half " bit early to be drunk" i swear to god if it hadn’t been for the fact that I could feel neither legs or hands I would have put her lights out!! Thinking of getting a T-Shirt done on the front it will read “drunk” - I wish and on the back MS - I wish not Anyone else ever had an experience like this??

Unfortunately yes…it happens to far too many of us I’m afraid.

You are only jealous I have to say was not one of my better responses.

It is a hateful and hurtful condition when so many of our symptoms are invisible and then do something very visible that you wish it wouldnt.

I would join you with the T-shirt.

Take care


Im like that,most mornings,when i lurch up the road to get to work.I wobble back and forwards,while waiting for the bus,often tripping up over the stick.Sometimes i often laugh at myself,so god knows what other people think of me when this is happening. I usually say what the F–k are u looking at,shouldnt do that, but makes me feel better.

Happens to me too, luckily no-one has said anything to me yet but I’ve had plenty of those ‘knowing’ looks from the clever dicks.

The only drunk comments I have had have been from work colleagues, perfectly friendly who have to drop that witty little joke in every time, it irritates me like hell but I have to laugh as if its the first time I’ve heard it, I just think ‘foxtrot oscar’ to myself! At least its not meant to be hurtful though, they just think they are highly hilarious.



I was once followed round my local (smallish) Tesco by the security guard as someone had reported that I was drunk. Once I’d noticed him he came over and said ‘are you o.k. love’. I told him I was fine and asked why. He said that someone was a bit worried that I appeared to have ‘had a few to many’ and he was just checking I was o.k. cos he new I was a regular there and he’d seen me get out of my car in a disabled bay so didn’t think that I was drunk but that he had to check anyway. I told him I was unsteady on my feet because of MS and thanked him for being concerned. He asked me if I needed any assistance and said that he would let the other staff know, in case anyone else said anything.

I thought that the way he went about approaching me was really nice, that he showed concern rather than judgement.


So glad it’s not just me, my husband says I walk like a puppet on a string!! Lol I prefer my aka name Bambi wobbly legs & cute!!

Yip!! We are all in this hellish place together, I can with no warning suddenly ‘tilt’ 30/40 degrees to the right or left, it freaks people out including me

Have a good weekend

Yhea me too :frowning: You have a great weekend too :slight_smile:

My son’s friend came round to chat about his girlfriend and I offered him a lift home. He said ‘maybe we should have a cup of tea first’, ROFL! I’d only had two sips of beer! :smiley:

I tend to go shopping really late at night now Bambi, as I find that it’s always me that’s expected to move out of the way and it’s very difficult when you’re wobbly.

This is for you!


Mags :slight_smile: xx

Brilliant link Mags, never seen this before! I think we should all get one, mmmm think maybe in the white or blue for me, def the long sleeves or the short fitted one! Maybe I should wear it out when I am playing bass in our band! Might get Jo Public more ms aware?


Second thoughts, why don’t they do it in black?


Love it :slight_smile: xx

Often, but I don’t give a ****

I live in a small village and when my children were younger I would take them to school everyday. I became aware of sniggers behind my back but chose to ignore it. I was devastated one day when our vicar came to see me and told me he could help with my drink problem and it was no use denying it as it was common knowledge that I was turning up at the school gate drunk. Up until this time I had kept my diagnosis to myself and found myself suddenly having to tell everyone as it was better than everyone thinking I had a drink problem. Suddenly I was the centre of attention being given sympathy from the very people who had talked about me behind my back, it’s a shame people feel they have the right to judge others.

That’s awful starbreath I too have never made it public knowledge to everyone not that I’m ashamed or anything! I think the worst part of this disease is the symptoms no one can see but we can feel and have to live with each and every day. xx
