Small annoyances

04 Dec

I’ve decided that typing might be good for my brain. Maybe if I keep using that group of nerves that are apparently exposed now, they won’t forget how to function. My right hand still feels heavy when I use it for things that require thought. Unlike say the picking up of my wine glass at dinner last night. I had now problems with that.

I do have a question for other MSers though. Is dehydration an issue for anyone else? If I don’t consume at least 4 glasses of water a day my symptoms are worse and I wake up the next day with a headache. My biggest problem with this is that I hate water. I am forcing myself to get used to it. I am a coffee drinker. As in the only thing that I drink is coffee. Well except when it’s wine. Now however, not only do I have to drink water, but every time that I drink coffee, I have to make sure that I have another glass of water to compensate for that. So as far as I am concerned this has become another unfortunate and frustrating side to this damn disease.

    Dehydration is a uge issue for me too. Coffee, woe, and diet coke are my choices but you get used to the water thing and eventually you crave it.

      Well it’s nice to know that I’m not the only one. I am starting to feel like I am loosing my mind. I can’t wait to be on a drug that actually works for me.
