    "I am NOT the DIsease"
    TShalla posted:
    I am NOT MS. It doesn't determine if I smile or laugh. I have a medical condition.

    In life we all face obstacles. there are always challenges. Where there are challenges, there are opportunities. I may not remember everything or even multitask as flawlessly as I use to, but maybe that means I should pay more attention to organization. Post stickers, use digital reminders. I am fortunate to live in a world with technology. i think this desease has progressed faster than it should because of additional stress. STRESS THAT I FOSTERED.

    Stress can kill the healthiest of persons so why should I aid this medical condition to progress.


    Eliminate those that try to bring me down, who does not support me. Embrace life!! Take it easy and enjoy.

    Let this condition remind you to enjoy, live and love as much as you can. And maybe all that love and joy inside will reverse or greatly slow the progression.

    God Bless you with love and strength
