So the way I explain Multiple Sclerosis to friends and family is that your spinal cord is like a big orange extension cord (because most people can visualize one) that gets a hole in the orange plastic coating. The hole exposes the wires. The wires can be bent or completely broken. Sometimes the signals will still go through, but sometimes they won't. Hence, good and bad days or "she was just fine this morning...". The wiring is so complex that everyone experiences it differently depending on which tiny wire(s) happens to be affected. Bottom line - there's a glitch in my wiring. You won't see my on the bad days.
My current DMD (disease modifying drug) lasts 7.5 hours, plus getting ready and drive time. Full recovery takes a month.

My personal experience with yoga and the way it helps me manage MS is completely positive. Yoga only makes me feel better. Every time. In every situation. In my body, my mind and my spirit.
Yoga helps with the myriad of symptoms and challenges MSers face daily - fatigue, spasticity, pain, anxiety, depression, needles, MRIs, sleep disorder, etc...
I created 'Your Own Gentle Approach' because yoga has helped me and I believe it can help you too!
