symptoms crazy Bad with stress?

Is is just me? Is it the MS? My symptoms flare so that I am not functional when badly stressed - I get blindsided.

Stress and MS do not play well together - anything that excites,depresses or changes our central nervous system has the ability to affect the MS symptoms.  How each of us feel that in our illness is different but still very real.  

We can't eliminate stress - and in fact we know some stress is healthy for us - but we do have to find ways to keep the stress from overwhelming us.  It can be a hard line to walk.

good luck, Laura
