A Letter To Multiple Sclerosis

My Baggage ~ Multiple Sclerosis

   Those care free days of running and playing with my children were suddenly cut short because of you. Yes Multiple Sclerosis, may I call you MS? You took away my freedom of movement. My children would ask why does mommy have to stay in the house? Mommy come play with us, please! 
  I do recall how you were messing with my eyesight. Driving was out of the question for a while leaving me to ask for help getting my kids to activities. Or losing the hearing in one ear. Oh how cruel you were to me. I would ask you, "Why are you doing this to me?" Yes MS you would allow these symptoms to improve slightly, but not totally, only to throw another setback to my once happy and carefree life.
  It has been 15 yrs. of carrying you around as baggage. I am on a path of happiness and just want you to know that I have learned how to live with you. If you must know there are times when this baggage of MS is a bit heavy to carry. I just stop take a deep breath and continue on my journey. 
   MS is what I have, not who I am!

As a person with MS,I bring a personal commitment to the work I do.
