Hi! Having MS has frustrated me, limited me, knocked me down for a bit, and eventually released me from fears I had that kept me from doing certain things and from becoming someone I want to be.
Since being diagnosed with MS in 2008, things I have done for the first time include: yoga, trapeze, traveling abroad, ending a long term marriage, running for and being elected to public office, walking a marathon, and writing.
My MS is invisible, but it affects me greatly and I put a lot of effort into managing fatigue and other symptoms. I find sharing our experiences to be among the best coping methods for living well with MS. Listening to others living with MS always teaches me something new that helps my perspective.
I write in my blog, "Keep Doing What You're Doing," at stacieprada.blogspot.com, and MSAA shares my posts sometimes.
