I am an adult but still feel like a kid. I am a daughter, big sister and wife. I am obsessed with my family and think they are the greatest people on earth. This is why I struggle because my mom has Multiple Sclerosis. Because it is not fair. I say it’s not fair over and over again but it gets me nowhere.
My mom is a fighter. My mom is my best friend. She is the rock of our family. Combined with my dad, she taught me everything I know about being a good person. From her I also inherited my love for plans. I love to plan things, I love discussing plans, I love plans. This is also the other part of my problem. My mom having MS, not part of the plan.
No one handed me a manual the day I found out my mom had MS. I am learning as I go and feel as though I am once again a student, except this time there is no graduation, no final exam, no summer vacation. But through this blog I have decided there will be recess. MS is not fun and dealing with it is not fun, but my hope is to begin to see life’s challenges in a positive way instead of a negative way. Through a lens of optimism instead of pessimism.
Welcome to MS Recess.
