I have found purpose in my circumstance of life with MS. I want to help others with multiple sclerosis, Choose joy in their MS reality. Trish Robichaud and I have created this website, and a Facebook community, where people with MS can find information, comfort, and support. Our hope is that people with MS will find, as we have, joy in living, no matter their circumstance.
I have a vision for www.Multiplesclerosis–relief.com to be a place where people can find tips about living with MS and a convenient place to purchase items that make life easier. I want to share information that has helped me.
I wish I would have taken out the tub and replaced it with an accessible shower before it was necessary, but I didn’t. So, I’m excited to share with you this little tip ~ using a specially designed chair to climb over the tub.
My daughter agreed to film me and when I watched it, I saw for the first time, how I appear in motion. During my MS experience, I’ve only been filmed when updating my walking progress. These updates only show me walking in a straight line close to items that may assist my balance.
It’s disappointing and discouraging. Watching this movie brought to light another personal growth opportunity.
I recognize that in today’s society, disease is often viewed as a failure of the medical profession, or with this new understanding of the Law of Attraction, a failure in one’s self.
I have accepted my life as I am experiencing it, and as I said, found purpose in it. I realize that life-expectancy is not severely diminished by Multiple Sclerosis, it is most often the quality of life that is affected.
It’s a difficult place to be – plan and work for our dreams and accept whatever is given to us. Difficult, yet possible to be happy. Today’s growth simply began with watching a video of me and a shower chair.
Tell me about your experiences in the comments below. When you were diagnosed did you think you would ever have difficulty with something as easy as getting into the shower? Are you prepared for the unexpected?
