Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month | March

Hello everyone! March was Multiple Sclerosis awareness month. MS is a very terrible disease in which the immune system eats away at the protective coverings of nerves. The people who suffer from this illness go through: pain the back or eyes, tremor during precise movements, muscular cramping, fatigue, dizziness, heat intolerance, weakness, abnormality of taste, reduce sensation of touch, anxiety, mood swings... the list goes on. I've met two people in my life having to live with this disease and that is why I am writing about it today. Before, I had no idea it even existed. It is horrible for us humans to be unaware of what our brothers and sisters face. I've heard from these people how a lot of society does not recognize their pain just because it is not visible all the time. The government/health programs need to keep researching this chronic central nervous system sickness in order to find a cure. As of now, most patients go through physical therapy and counseling.
