No Hugs Please!
A hug is a good thing. Right? Well not if its associated with Multiple Sclerosis. I dont know who named it MS Hug but they certainly dont feel what I do! The hug for me is more of a kick in the chest kind of feeling that lasts for minutes or up to an hour. I call it the Demon Grip. I have experienced it a few times in years past before I was diagnosed. Was in the hospital twice. Ignorant dr gave me a GI cocktail. Well I guess it worked because I threw it up and got some relief from the terrible spasm. That is what the hug/grip is. A terrible muscle spasm that can make you feel like you are having a heart attack. I recovered in a few hours but now I am feeling like crap. I suppose this is a flare. Hard to tell the difference between 'normal' life for me and a flare these days. I will rest today. Try to not talk to anyone. Maybe find a movie in my collection. Crafting is out.
