I have MS, it doesn't have me.
What a great mantra for me.
I have ____, it doesn't have me. Now you fill in the blank with whatever disease or condition interferes with you.
With progressive MS and the havoc of daily life, there is not a moment when I am not aware of my MS.MS has a definite hold on me. I cannot deny it, and it is not going away. However, I refuse to give in and let MS have me.
It is time for a new life plan. I will make it simple.
