MS and Sleep Disturbances - Interviews Sought

Hi bloggers friends!!

I received the following email last week from Heather Boerner, the writer who interviewed and quoted me in the Winter '08-'09 Momentum Magazine. Her friend is writing a piece on MS and sleep disturbances (not MS fatigue-related).

My experience with Heather was positive. If you are interviewed and quoted, I'd love to hear about it. Thanks, Lisa

Hi all,

I'm sending this to you because you've been great sources for me before for stories I've written for Momentum magazine on MS. Now I'm coming to you on behalf of a writer friend who is doing a story on MS and sleep problems. I think she means something other than the fatigue that's so abundant in MS.

Here's what she's looking for: Someone with MS under the age of 60 who has sleep disturbances. She has lots of experts, but obviously wants to get in touch with people who can speak about the issue from personal experience.

If you are this person, or know someone who might be, please contact her directly at Feel free to tell her I sent you.

I hope you are pain-free today and doing well. Please know I'm thinking of you.



  1. Does a cat causing the sleep disturbance count?

  2. Thanks, Lisa. I would LOVE to talk about my sleep issues. I'll check it out.

  3. Nina, lol, I've got the alarm clock kitty who insists on getting pre-dawn scritchy scratches. Yawn....

    Jen, go for it!!

  4. Boy oh boy have I had sleep issues. I sent her an email...

  5. Jen and Chris,

    Now when you guys are all interviewed and quoted and such, I'd love to hear about it. :)

  6. Hi Lisa,

    That issue and article arrived in my mailbox just a few days ago. Have you seen it yet? The author did a very nice job, I thought.


  7. Hi Anne,

    The author did do a nice job. Serves to highlight the issue of not everything is caused by MS, but could be complicated by it.

    I found it interesting that she pointed out the potential disappointments with various treatments or surgery.
