I Promote Margate Ramsgateand Broadstairs towns of The Isle of Thanet plus it's wonderful sandy beaches and bays. I have a theory you can always count ten ships off the coast of Margate and Cliftonville. I test this theory as often as possible.
I have just got up having spent yesterday and today in bed. I am full of a cold and it wont be long before I return to my pit. I am knocked for six the smallest of infections, the MS kicks in and says gotch ya and I go ridged unable to move sometimes for days. Multiple sclerosis is a strange beast attacking and stripping your nervous system of its protective coating. I have heard it likened to stripping the plastic insulation off of an electric cable. Once the coating which around your nerves is called myelin has holes in it your nerves actually behave like stripped electrical cable and short out. The reason that it is so similar is because your nervous system actually works by electrical stimulation and once your body's electrical impulses start leaking out of the holes in the myelin your nervous system begins to misbehave and you never know how it will surface, one day the short circuit will show as a twitch or a shake another as a stutter or slurred speech or as is often the case with me the inability to even lift an arm or a leg off of the bed. I love my MS if I didn't love it I would hate it, and that hate would tear me apart even more so than the disease itself. THE MS SOCIETY WEBSITE CAN BE FOUND HERE
