I was diagnosed with Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis in 2002. I spent the next decade trying to ignore the unpredictable nature of the disease and its impact on my life. With each passing year, things got a little harder and my world felt a little smaller. I was ignoring my symptoms and letting fear of the unknown guide my future. Eventually, I realized that just because I had MS, did not mean that I had to live like I was sick. I made a conscious decision to revise my nutrition and lifestyle behaviors to improve my symptoms and be the healthiest version of myself that I could be.
My hope is that by sharing my experiences and what I’ve learned living with MS, that it might help someone in some small way on their own health journey and that it might inspire them to become their own MS Wellness Project and take control of their future.
