Don't forget everyone is different
If you suffer from multiple sclerosis, you may have heard of a strange symptom that you’re thankful you haven’t dealt with. Maybe you are one of the lucky few who don’t have to deal with any of the above ailments when you are out enjoying yourself, but everyone is different. There may be other symptoms that you or other sufferers deal with that require a different set of measures in order to enjoy your day out, and this is fine.
Fortunately, the above list applies to most sufferers, for the most part. Keeping a rest schedule, resting when you get the chance while outside, and staying cool and hydrated are all great practices for people who aren’t suffering from MS, but they may not consciously think about the necessity of this advice. Practicing these tidbits of excursion advice could benefit you and your family as they take your lead in keeping hydrated and not overheating.
Don’t think of these measures as a burden or frustrating; they are necessary for every human being. You are just being proactive and looking out for your own health by staying prepared!
