This week is MS awareness week and Dizzy is on a mission to help raise awareness of the condition!
If you would like to know more about what MS is then please visit our previous post on What is MS? 🙂
Dizzy has decided that the best way to spread awareness is to give people little post it notes reminding them off the week (in some cases even when they don’t want them) and then telling them four facts about MS!
Dizzy MS fact number 1: Early symptoms of MS can often include tingling, numbness, vision problems, weakness and fatigue. A 100 people are diagnosed in the UK every week!
Dizzy came across this little house first this morning. Whoever it belongs to wasn’t in though….
So Dizzy left them a little note! She was very proud of her work. 🙂
Dizzy MS fact number 2: Everyones MS is completely different. No two people with MS will have the same experience.
Dizzy then found Duck to give a post it note too and tell him her top facts! …Duck took it all very seriously and promised to tell others.
Dizzy MS fact number 3: Everyday (minute) is different for people with MS. Someone with MS might be feeling fine one moment and hardly able to walk straight the next.
Dizzy then found another knitted donkey on her travels! She found this very exciting but he didn’t seem so interested…
Dizzy MS fact number 4: Some symptoms of MS are invisible. They are still debilitating but from the outside that person may look perfectly healthy.
Unfortunately Dizzy got abit carried away and wouldn’t let him escape without more post it notes…
Overall I think Dizzy has done very well with her raising awareness mission and it’s only the first day! What would you like people to be more aware of when it comes to any condition that you or someone you know has? xxx
