Raise Awareness for MS

• Be patient. I am not as quick as I used to be, it takes me longer to process what you just said and to respond.

• No, this will not go away. Trust me, I wish it would.

• I struggle with my M.S. every day of my life

• Although I appreciate everyone’s help, you have to understand how important it is to me to do things on my own. Common tasks that most people take for granted, give me a sense of accomplishment that is vital to my physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Trust me, if I need help, I’ll definitely ask.
• MS is an invisible illness that many don’t see or understand even when you try to explained it. It is a battle that the sufferers only understand. 

• some people think MS is like a cold or something and that it goes away..I can’t count the times someone has said to me…so you are ok now

• MS doesn’t affect everyone in the same way either. Some have no physical signs of it.

• Every day there is something that I feel that reminds me that I have MS. I go to bed every night actually wondering how I am going to feel the next day. It definitely seems to always be on your mind.

• Just because I don’t “look sick” or complain about my illness doesn’t mean it’s not real. It affects me everyday in everything I do.

• sometimes I just need a hug for no reason.

• when I try to explain what I’m going through, you don’t need you to fix me; you can’t, I wish you could, please just hear me with your 

• I may look like that person you knew years ago on the outside, for now, but inside, I am hurting, everyday, emotionally and physically, there will always be something.

• MS will impact me every single day of the rest of my life, it will affect me in ways that change over time, and I may not always be able to explain how I’m feeling to you.
