New Rule. If you live with MS you should be exempt from bike crashes.

That’s not asking for a lot, is it? After all, we MSers go through so much. Several rides in the MRI tube, really scary spinal taps, daily injections of synthetic drugs to reduce MS flare ups, site reactions to said daily injections, dozens of blood tests, EEG’s, monthly doses of intense infusion therapy with a skinny needle that sometimes really hurts, and not to mention the countless and often unpredictable MS symptoms. Numbness, blindness, tingling, cognitive dysfunction, balance issues, vertigo, tremors, nerve pain, fatigue, and so much more.

October 2012. Sprained ankle while walking around on rain soaked sidewalks in bike cleats! 

January 2013. Minor crash while making a sharp turn on gravel. Major fail!

So, Universe? All I am saying is give MSers a break and let us ride our bikes without incident.

Thank you.

Your friend,


  1. Hi Christie, While you're at it, can you ask the universe to exempt us from menopause too :/ That's the least it can do for us. That and bike crashes!
    Whatever you do...keep riding!

    1. Ha, ha! I sure will. Thx for stopping by ! Best, C.

  2. I'm sorry you had some bike accidents. But there are so many of us with MS that can barely walk, let alone ride a bike. I think I could handle a skinned cut knee from riding a bike more so than one from attempting to walk to my mailbox at the end of my driveway.

  3. Thanks for your inspiration even if some of us no longer have the strength!!! Stay strong as long as your MS allows!!
