Little Mouse

In another post Heather wrote the following: "...(I) see what I think is a mouse running along the floor, out of the corner of my eye.  Of course, there is no mouse there.  Many people with MS will tell you about "the little mouse."

OH MY GOSH! I've had this for years and not told a soul for fear that people would think I was insane. (Sometimes I hear a phone ringing, or my name when I'm in the shower or blow-drying my hair as well.) I feel so much better knowing that other people experience this too.

Also, when I'm driving at night, sometimes I think I see something crossing the road ahead of me (like an animal), but there is never anything there.

Does anyone else experience this one? I'm really starting to be concerned about my mental state. I know that I'm an intelligent, logical, pragmatic person, but this is all a bit much. Just checking to see if I need to see a psych...

Yes, I know, I was quite relieved when I read Heather's post as I thought I was losing was little mind I had left.

I am undx, but started have eye problems 2003/2004 and this year they have been much worse and happened more frequently.  I have the "mouse thing" happen everyday and it is really weird.  It is comforting to know that I am not the only one who experiences this.

My brain fog has been so bad these last two weeks I don't think a psych could even decipher what I would say.  Probably just put me in a straight jacket and send me away!  ha.....ha....ha....

Take care and if you feel you need to talk to someone, don't hesitate.

To all those who have seem that "little mouse," please post and tell us that we are NOT crazy.  Come on...admit it...some of you have seen that same little mouse that I have seen.  It's been happening to me for years.

Please post and tell us YOUR story....By the way, which one of you has my little mouse?  I haven't seen him in a couple of days.  Go ahead, spill your guts...someone has MY MOUSE...

I have seen the mouse, except in my mind, it was a ferret (don't ask). It has run across my bedroom floor thrice in a single week (last week). Today, it moved across the passenger floorboard of my minivan as I drove. I was convinced I had seen something, so when I parked, I dove into the floorboard to see if I could find *anything* that it might have been. I couldn't. A man walking by my car at that moment gave me a very strange look.
