After a Busy ‘Off-Season,’ It’s Time to Ask: How’s Your MS Today?
























“The Season” here in our little corner of Ireland refers to the tourist season. It used to be that when the kids went back to school in September, things died until the May Bank Holiday weekend, then slowed again until school ended in late June.

Now, international tourists keep the tour bus lines running well into November. Christmas and the New Year bring thousands to our town, and by St. Paddy’s Day, in March, all the shops and restaurants are open and in full swing.

My “off season” was taken up with the final throes of a new publishing project that we’ll talk about in the autumn. Right now, I’ve just launched the European version of my memoir, Chef Interrupted.

The media blitz has been far more intense than when I launched the American version two years ago, very nearly to the day.

There have been television appearances, a national radio broadcast, and a stack of newspaper interviews, with more to come in the coming weeks. All this while I’m trying to make sure my feet are firmly under me after a tough 2016.

What better time to check in with myself and offer you a chance to do the same?

Rate Yourself on the LWM3S

Every month we invite you to share how you’re doing on the Life with MS Self-evaluation Scale (LWM3S), a simple 1-10 scale in which:

1 = The best my symptoms have felt since my diagnosis with MS

10 = The worst my symptoms have felt since my diagnosis with MS

Remember, this isn’t a comparison to how you felt last month; we’re rating our symptoms compared to the time we were diagnosed.

With all that’s going on, I’d have to say I’m happily surprised. I’m not much better than I’ve been, but the extra activity hasn’t buried me either. I’d say that I’m hovering around a 6.5 this month.

Your turn. How’s your MS today?
