Welcome to the MS Blogging Community

Chris: My Journey with MS by Christina
For years I've wanted to start a blog about my life, but never felt there was anything to write about. Now there is. This blog will not just be about MS, it will be about my life. The good, the bad, and the hot mess ugly. It will be a way for me to talk about how this diagnosis is a wake up call for me to stop putting life off for tomorrow, because tomorrow I may not be able to walk, make homemade pie crust, crochet, or type out all the things I have floating in my head. I feel more alive today than I have in the entire 24+ years I've been alive. I hope you enjoy my journey.

DA's MS Mumblings by Dabble
I'm a nurse, writer, painter, vaguely creative soul, former pet owner and optimist. I'm also a person with MS. There are a lot of us out there. Coping with Multiple Sclerosis is never easy - this is my cheery account of how MS has given me a wonderful gift....or alternatively, how MS has #%@^!%%!'d up my life.

The Danielle English Mix by Danielle
In 2002, I was diagnosed with MS at the age of 17. The disease and I finished high school together, earned a Bachelor's degree and we're working toward a master's. I have multiple sclerosis. But what does that mean in the age of Web 2.0? That's what I'm trying to figure out. Welcome to the Danielle English Mix.

Healing Through Multiple Sclerosis by Cathy
The most power is held at the edge of things; as day moves into evening, the seemingly instantaneous arrival of an idea, the moment of conception or the delivery of a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. What was before can never be reclaimed and the road ahead is a mystery. There is the scent of dread as well as adventure. The territory is far from static and infused with the specter of grief and the anticipation of a miracle. How can one not be interested in this landscape?

Playing the MS Card by Jenny
I don't feel good. I was driving home from work last night and this wave of exhaustion came over me where I could barely hold my head up. I'm not exaggerating. It took everything I had to make it home from work. This is the first time I have actually contemplated pulling over and calling my husband to come get me. I can't stand feeling like this. It puts me in such a funk. Has this ever happened to anybody else? Whenever I am this tired for any length of time I seem to get sad or depressed. I don't deal with it very well. I have to work on this. It's awful!

Standup4MS: a story of mobility rehabilitation by Laurence
This might not be glossy but I hope it will enrich some experiences... In January this year, I was pleased with what I had achieved even if I had been told that I would have to use a wheelchair for the rest of my life and that nothing could be done. I was also repeatedly advised not to try standing on my own. I had to try this to see if I was getting any stronger. Standing helped keep my spirits up! I had been given a list of exercises, which I modified to fit with the care assistance I received.

This is my life and all that goes with it by Mike
This is for when I have something to say but nobody to say it to. I suffer from MS and Diabetes as well as an insane addiction to coffee. I am who I am and nothing more. I hope you find something here that interests you and if not then let me know what does and I will see what I can do.

Thoughts from my Broken Brain by lunafemme
What I am experiencing is transitory, simply a moment in time. I do not accept this moment as permanent.
