Hi gang, just wondering how you’re all coping in the run up for Xmas?
I’ve got my cards half done… got my grandson’s presents (luckily for me my family only buy for the kiddies)… and have ordered my Xmas dinner from frozen food delivery company.
Not much for me to do but in my sheltered scheme there’s lots of events… and I have family events… so even though mine is a small Xmas I’m still feeling a bit stressed out and worried my energy won’t hold out.
Just want to tell the newly diagnosed… and remind you oldies… that MS doesn’t like Xmas very much. It’s exhausting and stressful… two things which doesn’t do your MS any good.
So keep that in mind… and delegate as much as you can… and try and remember that NO family anywhere has a Xmas like they do in the telly adverts!
It doesn’t have to be a perfect Xmas to be a wonderful Xmas!
Take it easy… one step at a time… and tell your family if you’re not coping.
That’s advice I’m giving myself as much as to you all.
Lots of love and hope you’re all ok,
