Take Part In Your Health

Take Part in Your Health, A Big Part

MS is a part of me, something that I live with everyday, struggle with at times, sometimes longer than other times. It is something that I believe after time if you listen to your body you learn to have SOME control over. You learn to hear your body and know what it needs which is usually rest.

I have had it for 27 years and in the beginning I was terrified of what my life would be like, I am not afraid any more. Knowledge is power and so is experience and the more I know and the longer I have it, the stronger I feel to be able to handle and have more personal control of it, instead of it controlling me.

What MS means to me is just taking a little slower, little different, more flexible road through my life. My hopes and dreams never changed, just the route to get there. Don't be afraid. Be active and knowledgeable about your disease and try to forget it's there. If you give it too much attention it might just take center-field. The mind is a powerful thing. Count your strengths and your blessings. God be with you.

Great Insight!
by: Akrista

Thanks, Mary for your insight and encouraging words. Cir has been living with MS for a long time as well. So much time, so many lessons learned.

MS is a difficult journey, but one that he and you have learned to navigate. Hopefully your words and experience will help others who have just started on the road of MS.

Thanks again.
