Having multiple sclerosis (MS) should not always have to keep you from doing fun things! After all, people still have weddings, girls’ nights still get planned, and sporting events and social functions still happen. Although everyone’s situation may be different, living with MS and participating in things may be doable AND enjoyable. There are a few things I think about when preparing for an event, outing, or party (taking into consideration my MS symptoms).
I like to make sure that I am well prepared for any event I attend, so I am usually planning right up until the actual event. This includes the night before, the day of, and the actual event.
This may seem like a lot, but taking that extra step to plan and prepare can help you save energy and maximize your enjoyment. So plan early, plan often, and plan to have fun!
