Hi Carole, are you sure it’s not just stress of Christmas? I know you said the other day that you’d found your Christmas spirit, but there’s so much emphasis these days on everything having to be perfect, and that if it wasn’t, you’d be some kind of failure.
I’m sure it’s a tiny bit stressful, even for people who like it, and you know how good stress is for MS.
I may be wrong, but I’d hazard a guess it’s no coincidence MS starts “being a pig” for a lot of people, this time of year. Of course, it doesn’t help that we’re in the depths of winter too, so a long time since most of us got any natural vitamin D fix.
Touch wood, I haven’t had a “proper” relapse for years - most of those I did have were before diagnosis, not afterwards. BUT, those I had were all between October and March, and most commonly right after Christmas! “Go figure!” as the Americans say. I reckon I used to get wound-up over Christmas (still do) AND I was short of vitamin D. Put the two together, and what do you get?
