Good morning everybody. It’s hard to believe that it has been four years this month since I was first diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. We’ve learned a lot along the way. It’s been quite the journey – and we’re still learning.
I wanted to tell you real quick about a new series I’m doing on MS. We’ll be going back to the early days of the diagnosis, explaining what led to it, the testing that was done.
It’s a two-fold reason for doing this. One is to spread awareness, to help others understand more about the disease itself. I know before I was diagnosed, I definitely lacked understanding. I had a co-worker that had it years ago and I probably didn’t have as much empathy as I should have had.
The second reason is to reach out to others that are newly diagnosed and be a beacon of hope to them. My journey has definitely been a journey of hope.
