Can you say multiple sclerosis 5 times fast? If you think that's hard, try spelling it 50 times correctly. I've spelled it incorrectly many times and thanks to spell checker, I usually get it right. (**wink**)
Sometimes a miss-spelling slips by, though – hey, I'm only human. I thought it would be fun to add a few of the miss-spellings I've run across in my web browsing and searching.
If you'd like to add spellings and explanations of your own, use the form near the bottom of this page.
Have you come across any other spellings? If you have, add them to the form below. Add a short description or reason why you feel that miss-spelling happened.
Multiple sclerosis is a pretty un-fun disease, disorder, condition, or whatever you want to call it. It's just not something you would choose to have if you had a choice. Even something that had a cure would be better than MS.
Unfortunately, not only is this condition hard to say and spell, it's hard to live with, as well. Well, thank goodness for abbreviations, right? So, next time someone asks you what you have, you can just say, "MS".
If they ask, "what does that stand for?" - then you'll have to spit it out. A tongue twister for sure. If only MS was as simple as figuring out how to say it or writing it down on a medical form correctly.
So untwist those tongues and go for it. And if it's still too difficult - Just say something like:
"MS." or "You know. The same thing ___ has".
(Insert the name of a famous person with multiple sclerosis.)
Then they'll have to go look it up for themselves.
Have you run across a Multiple Sclerosis miss-spelling lately? Or have a term that others think you have instead of MS? What is it? Why do you think people use it?
