Blimey what a change in the weather, yesterday it was beautiful, blue skies very sunny and warm, in the afternoon it was suddenly 20 degrees.
Too sudden for me, felt quite unwell and my hands were swollen and painful. had real problems drinking the bubbly Cecile brought, could hardly hold the glass.
Anne surprised us by managing to make time to come round for the friday afternoon drink.
Regularly organised groups of colleagues and friends to have a friday evening drink and smoke, often sitting by a canal on a balmy evening.
Happy memories so yesterday was very good shame my bad hand function stopped me drinking too much more than a few sips.
Always happens when the temperature goes up, then the hands become even more tingly, really buzzing and they feel larger and more difficult to manage.
Today in contrast to yesterday the weather is grey and misty and cool, feel better but shame it is not such a pretty day.
Shame too as need to get used to it being warm, no one can cope with the temperature going up and down and MS just intensefies it all.
Used to love the heat and revelled in it when it happened here, since the diagnosis my temperture goes up and down at random.
Hate not having control anymore, its unbelieveable being here like this feel like the main character in the Samuel Becket play Happy Days who is buried up to her waist.
Like her I think it could be worse.
Determined to enjoy it all.
