I was surfing around the internet tonight reading stuff about MS when I stumbled upon the fact that American literary author Joan Didion was diagnosed with MS in the '60's. I didn't know this. She wrote a very lengthy but brilliant essay about the diagnosis and what the disease meant to her life at that time. Here is a link for anyone that wants to read it: lifewithms.com/after~1.htm She found a phrase while reading about marathon runners that she uses to describe MS fatigue that I just love and am going to borrow. "Wall of fatigue" describes perfectly what happens when the energy is gone and there are still things to do.
