Dark Humor anyone? Is that poor taste? This is the best I could find, which isn't very good.. but maybe a start.

We all have a sense of humour and hopefully most of us can see the comical side of some of the situations that MS puts us in at times. Unfortunately most of these particular jokes are not in the spirit of the caring supportive forum we try to foster, so I have blanked out the link.

Sorry Alex.

I love a good laugh, especially at myself- but I totally understand the sensitivity issue. Alex, I am going to google MS Jokes =)

This past week I have not been feeling so well (probably because I went to a bachelorette over the weekend) so I have been allowing myself a lot of down time. Today I was lying in bed watching a new TV show on my ipad when I noticed I was seeing double. I kind of ignored it at first (amazing how we do this) and then I realized it was getting more intense. I pushed the pause button and there were two images of the main character staring back at me and I burst into tears. I was home alone and I started to freak out thinking I was in the midst of a relapse and expereincing optic neuritus for the first time. I wanted to make sure- so I took a photo of what I was seeing "screen shot" (cool ipad trick) and sent it to my boyfriend in an email with the subject line- how many men are in this photo? He called me very confused- He saw two people too!

For some reason- whoever created this show thought it would be artistic to create doube imagery of characters at random moments. I did NOT find this artistic or creative- or relevant in any way. It was such a mind trip.

Anyway, joke (scare) was on me. But you do have to laugh at yourself... sometimes!

That's really funny. I was in the gym, lamenting how poorly I felt. I got home and my wife was in the bathroom. Needless to say 3 of 4 of us had food poisoning.

I remember waking up one night and my whole arm was numb. I bit my pinky just to make sure - no feeling. Here I was in the middle of the night having an exacerbation and I'd lost all feeling in my right arm... I was terrified. After a few minutes, the blood flowed back through my veins and my arm felt normal again.

Ok. Here are two jokes I hope are just the right amount to give us a chuckle and laugh at ourselves. OK to block if they are not. They're from the general disabled section:

    Call it a hunch, but I'm pretty sure I have an abnormal convex curvature of the upper spine.

    I was checking into a hotel the other week. At the counter, a guy in front of me said curtly to the receptionist, "I hope the porn channel is disabled." Unbelievable what some people are into.

HAHAHA!

I had carpel tunnel syndrome and thought the same thing! Everythig becomes a relapse... its annoying and funny at the same time. But when you get a real one - not funny at all!

There is a funny book called "awkward bitch" and while I didn't love the story, I found it to be very funny. I definitley don't think it is going to win any awards- it was like reading a trashy beach read on MS. She can be really funny in moments ( because she is self depricating and makes fun of herself all the time). She is based in London, I find those in London to have a much better sense of humor.

Anyway- she gives hilarious descriptions about becoming awkward. She worked at the very high end fashion boutique YSL and had to wear a patch for a couple of months... and pretty soon her clients were asking to buy one because they thought it was en vouge. I don't know I thought that was so funny.

She describes the things we go through in a very funny way. She always says ... Hopefully I wont feel like Alice in Wonderland because I feel a bit F**ked up right now... hhahah- story of my life.

Her passage on getting an MRI: " Loud. For anyone who has ever been inside an MRI, you know that they are not joking when they say 'loud'. I didn't remember my other MRI being this loud, but I guess it was. It sounded like I was inside a toumble dryer, but instead of tumbling with clothes, I was tumbling with a couple of wrenches and some loose nuts and bolts".

Just imagining that made me laugh- and usually when I think about an MRI I am not laughing... its a funny book and she does not take herself too seriously.

I think we tend to like this stuff because this thing we call MS is seriously scary.. but sometimes it helps to have a good belly laugh!

I read "Awkward Bitch" and enjoyed her book and her youtube posts. She's actually an American who's gradmother was Irish and so she was able to emigrate. She does bring humor to what can otherwise be a frightening situation. It's a good read for anyone with ms or who knows someone.

I like my idea of a T-shirt I could wear:


"I'm NOT drunk!!! I have MS"
Cheers,
