    Dave, you are hilarious and possibly my new best friend!

    An, I am not yet diagnosed, but have that often, also cannot get my mouth connected to by brain and get out what I'm thinking and/or have problems bringing up words I commonly use. It so far has been for short periods of time, hours or a day or two.

    Hope that helps. It's a confusing frustrating ride trying to figure this out.

    Hello An,

    Okay, enough smart alec stuff! Yes, I feel weird too. Now, I may have been weird before the MS got me, but that was a different kind of weird, if you know what I mean.

    Some times the world around me is confusing and as you said, slightly "out of focus". Not in a visual way out of focus but in a confused, what am I doing here kind of way. It can be frustrating as hell, or just mildly annoying, depending on what I am trying to do.

    All we can do is to try and do our best to cope with what is at hand and let the rest go on by.
