from Julie Stachowiak, Ph.D. Before you give up anything you like to do, consult with an occupational therapist (OT). These people work to keep us functioning, even when some of our body parts don't seem to be playing on the same team that we are. Look, MS has taken lots of stuff from most of us and it is up to us to hold on to the pleasurable things in life. If you love to garden or cook or paint, but can't figure it out with your spasticity or fatigue or tremor, talk to an OT. Take the steps you need to in order to keep doing the things that make life fun and help you forget about (or at least be at peace with) MS for a little while. Take care of yourselves, my friends.
