Multiple Sclerosis is a crazy distortion of life. I remember when I was younger I saw a TV commercial and they explained MS as craziness with lights flashing, hot and cold temperatures, and uncertaininty. The commercial felt off balance and uncertain to explain MS. It was a scary commercial. I was scared thinking about my future. I was diagnosed in 1988. I started my adult life with uncertainity.
When I was younger, I was afraid to be in a wheelchair someday. Now I say, so what. I am more than my legs. I use a walker, wheelchair or scooter. Often we are led to believe, our usefulness is someone else’s version of our usefulness. If they say we are important, are we important? If they say, we are NOT important…Is this true? Whose perspective matters the most? Yours? Think about it.
