I have absolutely no idea which of my weird issues/symptoms are due to MS and which are due to my many other medical conditions - or age - anyway.
However, I figured out long ago that the less I eat the better I feel (and the more I exercise the better I feel), and I've never thought it had much to do with MS. A lot is probably due to my nasty food reactions, but I think people underestimate the effect the wrong foods in the wrong amounts can have on their lives.
When I started my campaign to eat healthy about 20 years ago (way before my dx), I noticed that I had to contend with actual ridicule
from co-workers for my spare eating habits (including no lunch at all), no sweets, etc., while they discussed their lunch options around me. Then they'd bitch and moan all afternoon that they felt like crap from eating so much.
And in the next sentence they would still
make fun of my weird eating habits. Go figure.
