Making sense of MS

Making sense of MS

attitudeNo matter when you were diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, or any other chronic illness, there are times you’re confronted with your own self just that little bit too much. And what you see, is not what you signed up for.

Positive MS News: July 2014

Positive MS News: July 2014 http://wp.me/s1Debs-july2014

During the selection process(interview as well as the rest of the competition), Sierra wore her insulin pump. As she walked on…
