I was diagnosed with MS this past December. Hearing this diagnosis was the last thing I expected. I allowed myself a few days to be sad and terrified. But, as many of you know, I have had tough times in my life before. I kicked into gear and focused on the things I can control. I can make sure I never skip an injection. I can completely change my diet. I can make sure that on the days I don't feel like exercising, I exercise anyways. This is not to say I haven't had tough days since. This is not to say I will never have them again. This is to say that I will do all that I can to prevent my disease from progressing. 

While I am a strong person, I do need the strength of others when I am not feeling so strong. I am so thankful for my amazing boyfriend, Gunder who is my ROCK. My mom who is with me through thick and thin and altered her diet to match mine, making me feel less alone. All of my amazing girlfriends who laugh with me and make me feel like everything is going to be ok. My great boss and co-workers who have been very supportive and understanding since I first started on the journey of figuring out what was wrong with me. And of course, our cats, Frankie and Neo. On the down days, there's nothing like a purring cat in your face to cheer you up! If I didn't have all of this love and support, I don't know what I would do. Thank you to all of you.

I am again asking for your support. While there is no cure for MS, there is hope for a cure and I am hoping that cure is found in my lifetime. The MS Walk is one way that funds are raised to support finding that cure. Anything helps, $5 to $500, whatever you are able to contribute. If you would like to walk with me, that's even better! Just register with "Team Nic," I would be honored to walk with as many family and friends as possible.

Here's to finding a cure!

Love to you all,
