MS can be cool???

Is MS all bad?

Or can there be moments when having MS puts us at a slight advantage?

We think so!

  • 'I'm having a relapse' is a good excuse to avoid shopping
  • My golf handicap's gone from 9 to 21 in 10 months (dark side: that's still too low by 10)
  • Wobbly legs make Elvis impersonations easier
  • My company put air-conditioning in my car
  • I can park for free now
  • Due to numbness I don't feel my injections
  • I now have all the time I want to be online
  • The Government has more paperwork to go through than I do
  • Shoes last forever when you use a wheelchair
  • My husband finally learned how to cook
  • Peeing a lot causes reduction in water weight
  • Insomnia allows me to stay up late enough to watch Red Dwarf
  • I have my own hunky valet
  • Waxing my legs doesn't hurt as much as it used to
  • It's cheaper than getting drunk, but with the same effect
  • Librarians are less likely to scream about an overdue library charge when they see me either in my wheelchair or trying to walk with my leg brace and cane
  • I get to go to the front of the line in Disney World
  • I have a ready excuse to leave a boring party
  • I get to park closer to the stores in winter
  • I get to board the airplane before anyone else does
  • I'm able to read a book on my lap whilst I queue for tickets
  • The queues for the disabled loos are shorter at music festivals
  • I don't have to clean the toilets any more
  • I get to park my little car amongst the Jaguars in the manager's car park in front of the office
  • When you're in a wheelchair nobody sees your ass!
