With all these great resources and amazing people who have put in countless hours researching, organizing, and writing, why, oh why, should you stick around here?
LOL! I'm actually asking myself that question as I type.
I'm hoping I can offer you this: I have somehow lived through 20 years of this disease and come out in a pretty desirable place. My MS is best categorized as relapsing/remitting, but even in remission the damage that has been done imposes limitations.
Through this blog I hope to share some of the hope and positivity that have come with victories, large and small. I would like to encourage you to be active in understanding your disease and your body. Finding real limits - without assumptions - is crucial. Any time you assume you cannot do something, you are doomed to not be able to move past that limitation. I fully realize there are boundaries, immutable lines, but I want to know where they are without any errant assumptions caused by fear or hopelessness.
