I am a 47 year old woman who has been on an MS guided journey since February 2011. I woke up one morning recently, bursting with ideas only to be squelched by needing to go to work. A quote that I saw only days before came to mind; “Don’t ask what the world needs, ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the world needs are people who have come alive.” -Howard Thurman? I am not ready to quit my day job, but writing has made me come alive. I want to share my experience in hopes of perhaps giving others diagnosed with MS new perspective and empowerment.
