That's interesting observation, Dejibo. I don't watch a lot of the politcal stuff--that is, I rest my eyes by keeping them closed and just listening to what is on the TV, some of the time. I've done that ever since I had Optic Neuritis.
So I didn't notice this about Ann Romney. I saw that she is very good looking, especially considering she's over 60.
I kept going for years and years at my work (teaching) in part by lying down in the "rest room" some times. I'm sure people thought I was weird--I didn't even have a dx of MS or anything during many of those years, but I had to lie down or at least put my feet up and close my eyes. The eyes, as we have discussed on another thread, are very sensitive with our neuro problems. I wore dark glasses to teach because they would not let me change the lights in my classroom. I did change the lights in my office, and it looked wonderful with incandescent lights, nice pictures...it was not sterile looking.
I miss it. Sorry I had to go on disability. Bummer, huh?

Stumbling, and had brain fog and had doubts about whether or not she was in serious trouble. The team scheduled in more rest for her, and allowed her to recharge, but she said it scared her so.
They also showed Mrs O's father. She claimed that he was dx when he was
