Why I Stay Up Late
I am asked this question quite a bit. Here goes a reason for it. I was made to stay in the hospital 7-10 days of complete rest, back when I first started having MS relapses! They did not know what to do but rest and take an IV everyday of steroids. It was tough to have complete rest, while taking a medication that makes me hyper.
Needless to say, I feel like laying in bed, and unable to sleep is like torture! To this day I stay up late, to avoid being awake in the middle of the night. It works pretty good for me, I know most MSer's have trouble sleeping.
This is where things could be worse. Prisoner of your body and your mind is fine. Remember to be thankful for whatever you can do. I do try to be grateful for breathing and other abilities we take for granted.
