The internet is a powerful tool. As we each sit at a keyboard and screen, in our separate rooms and scattered locations, we touch each other in ways we may never fully know.
For instance, I am so very proud and thankful for my MS Blogger buddies who reached out to Brianna, a newbie "probable" MSer, in a time of frustration and doubt.
My friends, you also touched me in all of your warm well-wishes regarding this recent "little speed bump" in my MS journey. BTW, I'm feeling much better and walked down the stairs this morning without leaning against the wall.
(note to self: Prednisone by itself, not after IVSM, is still no good for you. Stick to the Decadron next time.)
These are two examples why I tell people "I Have MS." It is a way to put a face on an invisible illness and to let others know that we certainly are not alone in this.
Today I also posted at Health Central about the need for a secret handshake or favorite hairstyle.
What might be your suggestions for a way to identify each other? I'd like to hear what you can come up with.
