Checking your weight should be easy

The bathroom scales are very conveniently placed…and then you soon realize that you cannot stand immobile safely long enough to take a proper reading. You have no core stability and pull down a towel rail when falling…Is it familiar?

Multiple Sclerosis or MS attacks the nerve fibres that carry messages to and from your brain, symptoms can occur in any part of your body and that includes poor core stability. That means falling a lot during the day. These falls are so frequent….they do not get mentioned. Then one forgets the easy way of stepping on the scale.

Among all of what is happening with coping with an everyday life with MS, stepping on weighing scales is the last thing that comes to mind…

But you need to check:

  • before an operation with general anaesthetics.
  • during assessments by health and care professionals.
  • some medications need to be administered according to your weight.

It is important to check your weight regularly, easily and with a minimum of fuss. There are means that enable this in your community:

There are easy ways to find the weight of your wheelchair, an ordinary chair or your sticks…

Read what happens when you would like help in the community or in a hospital…

Chris Russell is doing the Wolf Run

Spring is in the air…It is time for the Wolf Run again! Chris Russell likes his family; he and his three brothers will take the Wolf Run 10K challenge at the end of April. They will do this in memory of their aunt Maureen who passed away last year after 30 years of battling bravely with Multiple Sclerosis.
Jumping in the mud is nothing near enough to describe the 10K challenge. This will happen sometime soon enough. Chris is hinting that the brothers are not all in their prime. They think that a fit tribute to their aunt Maureen is raising money for the MS Research charity, who are working hard to find better treatments for MS sufferers.
Please sponsor Chris and his brothers on JustGiving Chris Russell will do the Wolf Run[/caption], that will push them towards the finishing line!
Chris helpfully give a link to a past year Wolf Run to help you understand. Chris Russell will do the Wolf Run

Nadia is going up Kilimanjaro

Nadia and Holly

Nadia and Holly are going up Kilimanjaro

Nadia and Holly are going up Kilimanjaro! You could think that is easy…

Holly was diagnosed two years ago with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). It starts with attacks that affects the body functions. It comes and goes, it is remitting and relapsing. At the time one is young in a career that makes one hopeful MS has to return or remit. What if you are an air hostess in a strange place far from home?

What if the symptoms you have make you look as if you are under the influence of alcohol? Slurred speech or lack of balance…It is very tough at 25!

I left hospital not knowing much about my condition, or if indeed I would ever walk properly again, said Holly.

Nadia decided that her inspirational friend Holly was not going through with this on her own. They both want to find better treatments for the disease.On January 24th 2014 they will together start climbing Mount Kilimanjaro on the Machame Route.
Give Nadia some support, donate using the Justgiving link: http://www.justgiving.com/NadiaKilimanjaro2014

Think of using Gift Aid as it will make your donation go further. It is a massive challenge for both, mentally and physically. Any donation will make a huge difference, and please don’t underestimate how much your support means to them.
