14 years . . .


I don’t know that I would call it an anniversary . . . but it was fourteen years ago on the 8th that I was diagnosed. Hard to believe. At the tender age of 23 I was told I had this disease that would profoundly affect my life. As I look back over those years, I can see how having MS has changed me, changed my outlook, changed my perspective. Some for the good, and some for the bad. It has taught me to appreciate life. It has taught me not to procrastinate. It has taught me to do what I can when I can, and to rest when I have to. It has taught me that I can do the same things that others do, and to not use my illness as my excuse when I fail.
