Here it is -- almost Thanksgiving, with Christmas not far behind. The Christmas Season is a time of celebration and happiness, but it is also a time for intense depression and disappointment. MS tends to cause your feelings to dip toward depression, but here's an idea. Write about it.
MSF and Hunter House are hosting a "Focus On Your Feelings" Holiday Giveaway. In 200 words or less, tell about the emotional impact of MS on your life. Choose your format or style, prose or poetry, and talk about depression, denial, acceptance; tell your story. Ten winners will be published on both the MSF and Hunter House web sites, and they will receive an autographed copy of MS and Your Feelings by Allison Shadday. Ms. Shadday, an MSer herself, counsels MSers as well as writes.
Send entries by Dec. 1st to firstname.lastname@example.org and include "Focus on your Feelings" Holiday Giveaway in the subject line. Please include your name, the date you were diagnosed, your age, city, state, telephone number or email address. Winners will be contacted by Dec. 15.
