Why I Walk

MS is not one thing. It is different for me everyday. It seems that it is different for everyone who has it, although we can have a lot in common too. Sometimes I feel I am a veteran at this, and other times there is something brand new that my mind or body does and i realize I still have a lot to learn. 

I have Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis, and its been a hell of a year. The disease modifying medication I had been taking was not working for me anymore and my symptoms flared up badly. The good news is that because of funds raised through this walk and other efforts by the MS Society, my doctors and I had options. I had actual choices, and went with a medication that I feel really good about, does not have horrible side effects, and I don't have to give myself a shot everyday anymore! The fact that I had choices, that others have choices, that doctors can present choices is amazing and was unheard of until a few years ago.

I walk because I can, and I plan to for a long time to come. I am not always graceful, and sometimes I need help, but MOVING has taken on a whole new meaning to me, and while I can still curl up on the couch like a champion, I have a new appreciation for the simplest of movements.

The MS Society funds reserach, but they also fund amazing programs for people with MS and their friends and family. I have taken advantage of these and they have helped me feel connected and supported during times when I really needed it. Please donate to this amazing organization and support my efforts to walk and move for many year to come. 

If you are in the Los Angeles area, please consider joining us on team Ya Basta! It loosely translates to enough already, which is how I feel about MS on most days. The walk is a great event, and we would love to see you there.

Love to you all!
