I was diagnosed with Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis in 2002. I spent the next decade trying to ignore the unpredictable symptoms and their impact on my life. With each passing year, it got a little harder and my world felt a little smaller. I was living as if I had no control over my disease and was letting the fear of the unknown guide my future. Eventually, I realized that just because I had MS, did not mean that 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.
This blog is based on what I’ve learned living with a chronic illness. My hope is that by sharing my experiences, others will know that they are not alone on this journey. My intention is to empower people living with Multiple Sclerosis to take control of their health and become their own MS Wellness Project.
