If you are looking for a spot of light relief in these strange times, from somebody who might know what life is like for you, we have started a podcast about the funny side of MS. We’ve both had MS for over 10 years, so have quite a few funny tales to tell! Here are some details and a link to our trailer and you tube channel:
A poet and a comedian both with Multiple Sclerosis meet to chat, life, escapades and the funny side of the illness. And they laugh. A lot.
Occasionally informative, often anecdotal, always ridiculous, Lytisha and Jeanette hope to uplift and entertain. Join them as they discuss the challenges and hilarities of living with the unpredictability which is, a sometimes invisible, sometimes very visible disability.
Lighten up peeps, personally I think we should take the piss out of ourselves more often. If not, what are we left with? A life of tedium and misery. I rip the sh*t out of myself as often as possible, so do my friends and family, and being referred to as Ironside still gives me a chuckle. If we lose the ability to laugh what else is there?
I haven’t watched the videos – they only open as a 3 cm screen with no sound – but I think Jeanette has something here. I much prefer my daughter’s lame jokes when I’m bouncing off the walls to Mum’s concern that I’ll hurt myself. If you can’t laugh at yourself when you topple over backwards, then what’s the point of life?
Maybe I feel differently because I seldom have extreme pain and am still ambulatory, but I have no intention of taking all this so seriously that I can’t laugh about the wet pants or the unbrushed hair or running around with my slippers on the wrong feet because I couldn’t feel the difference.
