How should I order my schedule so my multiple sclerosis doesn't affect my energy levels?

ANSWER

Have a plan. Schedule your days according to what you know about your energy levels. If you always get tired in the afternoon, try to get as much done as you can in the morning.

See if you can change your work schedule to get to the office early so you can leave before you're too tired. Do important jobs first, and break up big tasks into smaller ones that are more manageable.
