Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month 2019

Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month 2019It might be officially the last day of MS Awareness Month, but I, like thousands of others, I am aware of it EV-ER-Y DAY. Just because our country promotes awareness during this particular month doesn't mean that all around the world various cultures and societies aren't drawing attention the MonSter. Author Barbara Stenslandin the UK tells us that they recognize the week of April 22-28 as MS Awareness Week. (Missed her interview? See March 20 post.)

After contacting some folks in Ireland, I am led to believe that their fund raising remains publicity active year round. Good for them.                                           

Want to know what's going on around the world with MS? It isn't that difficult to find out if you're not intimated by social media.

The best MS Blogs

As we near the end of MS Awareness Month, I struggle to keep the tears at bay. For an individual living with MS, purpose is everything. My purpose is to keep moving, constantly encourage, and look for ways to improve my life and the life of other Warriors.

I've come to love my little blog and the personal therapy it offers me in it's attempt to smooth over the absence of physical friendships. MS is a lonely disease. It is an expensive disease and it is not very friendly. 

I am by no means a professional blogger and I know very little about anything computer related, so I doubt seriously that blogging will ever earn me an income; but, that is not my purpose. 

I just want to share any and every little scrap of kindness I can. So...if you enjoy Lady with the Cane, I KNOW you will want to check out these awesome award winning MS Blogs.

How I Got MS Into Remission And You Can Too!

Triggers To MS I’ve been extremely lucky and even appreciate life more from having MS. That doesn’t mean I still don’t hate MS because I do! I even had a friend pass away from complications of MS (she wouldn’t try changing her diet). But that doesn’t have to be your course. It’s known that chronic inflammation causes MS. Since everyone is different you need to figure out what caused your inflammation. It’s usually a combination of things that trigger MS. Triggers to MS: → Diet (processed foods, refined sugar, refined carbs, food allergies, etc.)
→ Infections (Candida, viruses, bacterial overgrowth, and parasites)
→ Environmental Toxins (heavy metals, mold, pesticides, plastics, etc.)
→ Chronic Stress
