Me, My MS and I

Stick Project Is Complete

I’ve been rather neglectful of my blog of late, having suffered from a chest infection after the IV steroids. Feeling all better now and off back to work tomorrow. I’ve been off for around 2 months and the thought of going back is filling me with a little trepidation. I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of things though – I’ve become bored without work. My relapse is still stubornly refusing to abate, but I’d rather be busy and keep my mind active as much as I can.

The thought of going back to work gave me the boost I needed to get my stick painted as I didn’t want to go back to work with a black stick. I was discussing my stick with my GP on Friday (it was the first time he’d seen it painted and thought it was fab) and we realised it’s a rather good, if unintentional, tactic for diverting sympathy away from me. I find as a young woman with a walking stick, many people see the stick and feel sorry for me, but I’d rather they saw a kick ass stick and commented on how cool it looked than feel sorry for me.

I’ve added below some pics of my handywork! Normal blogging service has been resumed!

    you are one hell of an inspiration! I am a young lady too and as the results of a car crash I may have to use a walking stick for a while, I was researching about them when I came across your wordpress and as I have bright pink hair I had already planned to have a matching stick! I was worried about the sympathy factor but after reading your entry I feel like shouting ‘LOOK AT MY STICK’! lol! I hope you are well and thank you for making it seem a little easier xxx
