Why I Blog...

My Blog is my happy place!!
I come here to share my stories, my adventures,
my pictures and my joy!
To share my ordinary life with my extraordinary guy...
 
Today, I am filled with courage, as I briefly share my story with you.
Ten years ago my life was forever changed
when I received a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis
from my neurologist.
 
You can read all about living with MS here and here.
 
When I don't write, I can't write...
If I don't reply to a comment, it's because I am unable to.
Sleeping and suffering for days at a time,
MS can be crippling,
affecting my body in so many negative ways.
 
 Today I feel better.
 
I can't wait for tomorrow, it will be better yet!

Today's word is "Knock" and my "Six Words" for today...

"Knock Out MS, Find The Cure"

Please stop by and share Six Words with Adrienne,
it's fun and challenging!!
Many thanks Adrienne, I am so happy to be here today!!

  6. When you don't write...I always wonder and fear you are in a rough place. I hate that your body betrays you and makes you go to that place. You are a special lady filled with courage and I admire you so much. I wish you peace and comfort.

  7. Ah Debbie, you are such an inspiration to so many people. Thank you. I have been doing a lot of research about MS lately, for reasons that I am not at liberty to say at this point. My prayers are with you, and all others whose lives are touched by this disease.

    Love and peace, dear friend.
