When you hear the word 'disabled,' people immediately think about people who can't walk or talk or do everything that people take for granted. Now, I take nothing for granted. But I find the real disability is people who can't find joy in life and are bitter.
Take a step back, evaluate what is important, and enjoy life.
You have to find out what's right for you, so it's trial and error. You are going to be all right if you accept realistic goals for yourself.
You have to lift your head up out of the mud and just do it.
I've always had this American-pie face that would get work in commercials... I'd say things like, 'Hi, Marge, how's your laundry?' and 'Hi, I'm a real nice Georgia peach.' Sometimes this work is one step above being a cocktail waitress.
I have an enormous fondness for delicious food. It's very comforting.
There were symptoms that I saw, and though I went to many doctors and had many tests, no one diagnosed MS.
Oddly enough, MS has made my life so much better than it was before. I now appreciate what I have and I am not running around like a rat in a maze.
I understand how hard it is to talk to people about MS. You don't want pity or random advice.
MS doesn't define who I am.
I'm wondering if they haven't reported all the people with MS, because if all of the cases were reported, the government would have to step in and give more financial aid to us.
Seventy-five percent of MS sufferers are women.
If you get a diagnosis, get on a therapy, keep a good attitude and keep your sense of humor.
You can keep it to yourself, but you could also call a support team like the team at MS LifeLines. They are there to support the MS community and give good advice.
Being sensitive to the problem of women is just another symptom of the quality of movies: I don't think you can do anything that's very sensitive. Everything's sort of broad strokes and big gestures - adventure things that boys, guys want to see.
