My goal for this month is to share alternative MS treatments, while learning from others of ways to tolerate this MonSter.
Tomorrow, January 5, the Marion County MS Self-Help Group meets for the first time in this new year and I will share the highlighted state event mentioned above. I really believe that one way to deal with this disease is to educate ourselves about the infrastructure of our condition. Yes, infrastructure.
You read it right.
Sounds like a business, doesn't it?
That's because the business of multiple sclerosis is a real thing. If we do not address the politics of MS, we are not participating in the fight. That doesn't mean that each and every one of us need rush to the state capital in protest. But we all need a spokesperson, do't we? There are too many occasions in which individuals who really do not know our situation speak for us.
I think I just talked myself into attending this event...
