My Experience with Driving and Multiple Sclerosis

My Experience with Driving and Multiple Sclerosis | JSM Reasearch | Scoop.it
Driving can be a challenge for people with multiple sclerosis.
James Nelson-Lucas's insight:

It's 208 miles from Adelanto to Bishop, California. And 245 miles between Grapevine and Tracy California. Despite the distances, the are the two routes where I feel the most comfortable behind the wheel. I, who can get lost driving 3 miles to the bank, and finds the Walmart parking lot daunting. That's because the former are direct, dead reckoning drives. Just put on the cruise control, and point the car straight ahead. Both cognitive dysfunction in micro-calculations, really hit me where I live.

Relearning the Art of Asking Questions | JSM Reasearch | Scoop.it

“Proper questioning has become a lost art. The curious four-year-old asks a lot of questions — incessant streams of “Why?” and “Why not?” might sound familiar — but as we grow older, our questioning decreases.”

Science Of Structure: Why Your Routine Is Killing Your Creativity

Science Of Structure: Why Your Routine Is Killing Your Creativity | JSM Reasearch | Scoop.it
The stress hormone cortisol can harm myelin, the fatty substance that coats our brain cells.
James Nelson-Lucas's insight:

The health of my myelin sheaths is daily on, and in, my mind. For that is what Multiple Sclerosis is; Corrosion of the myelin sheaths that coat our neural axions. And like any electrical cord, without insulation, the signal gets short circuited. Many of the tools I have been taught to deal with my mental mis-fires involve setting routines. Now, I have never been the routine type. But, for some tasks, structure does help me "get sh*t done". But, as this article contends, can cause stress. Guilt over missing a step in your routine could actually damage the myelin I seek to protect. While I feel this article makes a very compelling case. I am not ready to through structure out the window. What this article does for me is to give me "legitimate cover' when it comes to my seemingly random behavior. Thus reducing my guilt. Which reduces my stress. Which saves my myelin. Which keeps my brain working. I am not scattered, I am ergodic! Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

The website that explores what happens when Multiple Sclerosis attacks a funny bone and misses! Thank you for checking out my website.   This is the place where I use a giggle stick to beat up on Multiple Sclerosis.   As I have been told and discovered, MS sucks.  But, it seems that everything surrounding this sucky illness is just so bizarre, you have to laugh to keep your sanity.  Like, what kind of a medical condition would call its most annoying symptom a hug?   Who came up with that? What kind of illness actually makes you look much better than you feel causing those around you to think you are a hypochondriac?   And when MS symptoms are visible, they make you look like you’re drunk.  So, if you have MS, people think you are a hypochondriac who drinks too much.   I learned early on that if I didn’t laugh at ironic MS circumstances like the above I … Continue reading →
