Back to School?

This blog entry from Bonnie Groessl, MSN, APNP, emphasizes the importance of learning to slow down the damage to the brain that aging can cause. While people with MS need more repetition to learn new things, they can still do it and should. Don't tell yourself that you can't learn anything because you have cognitive symptoms. You can learn new things with a little extra effort and some adaptations to help your memory.

Does this mean go back to school? No, not if you don't want to. Learning can involve anything from reading a book to learning a new hobby or sport to finally figuring out how to program that darn DVD player! Read Bonnie's blog to see why learning is so important.
