MS symptoms can be so varied from person to person and really hard to explain, so this series of animated videos from MS charity Shift.MS are just genius! Over the 12 days of Christmas Shift MS will be releasing these brilliant Symptom Animations; each one explaining someones experience with a particular symptom, with a little animation to really visualise these usually invisible experiences.
I’m so fortunate to have been able to be a part of this project as I know how many people this is going to help. As someone who has lived with MS for almost 6 years I’m still learning every day what all the different symptoms look and feel like.
This is perfect to share with my family. friends and colleagues too so they have a better idea of what I mean when I’m talking about my MS.
Here I share my experience of how MS affects my Cognition and Thinking… I mean I sounds like I’m experiencing problems with Cognition while I’m speaking in the video!!
I’m going to do a post each day for each of the symptoms Shift MS have posted and tell my story and experience of that symptom. So tomorrow will be Fatigue as it’s incredibly fitting given the busy day I know I’ll be having tomorrow!
Let me know what you think, I’d love to hear your experiences with cognition or problems with thinking straight? It’s one I’ve definitely had to learn to manage and one of the most frustrating invisible symptoms for me.
