If MS Were A Comic Strip

If MS were a comic strip, what would it look like?

Do you ever experience something and think this is so weird (or sad, frustrating, happy, grateful, etc) or experience something that just makes you laugh at yourself? Maybe it is a situation or experience you find yourself in at a store, on a date, at home, or at an event. The sky is the limit.

Submit your ideas here (a few simple sentences describing your idea) and on Friday, August 27th, we'll pick one person for our very own Brooke P to create a comic strip inspired by their idea. The winner's comic strip will be featured throughout our site, social media and featured in our newsletter.

  1. Do you want a description on text form or a basic sketch? I have an idea. 😉

    1. Hi ! I am tagging here, so she will see your question and respond. I would love to see what you come up with! - Lori (Team Member)

    2. Hi Lia! Great question - I should have specified. Text form is fine! If you want to draw something out and include a picture of it to give a better idea, that's fine too! 😊. Kayleigh, MultipleSclerosis.net team

  2. Okay. So, I keep joking with my friends about it. I tell them that if anyone ever offers them MS, they should decline the offer. Also, if they ever see an email saying that they've won a lifetime supply of MS, they should delete it without opening it because it's malware. I think that a cartoon playing off of that idea might be kind of cool.

    1. That is a cool idea, @LiaPender! Wouldn't it be nice if that was the way it happened, if you could avoid MS by deleting an email? Thanks for sharing! - Lori (Team Member)

    2. I wish there was a "love that idea" reaction button! This is so smart! I love this! Thank you so much for sharing it!!! 🧡 Kayleigh, MultipleSclerosis.net team

  3. How about somebody wearing big clown shoes with fire and sparks shooting out the sides. When the person falls they bounce back up in a springing action and start travelling again to the next destination until they fall again and again and again but keep on bouncing back up and continuing their travel through life like we all do.

    1. What a vivid and accurate description, ! I love this! - Lori (Team Member)

    2. I second Lori. This is such a great suggestion! Thank you for sharing!! 🧡 Kayleigh, MultipleSclerosis.net team

  4. ALL symptoms are troubling no matter how small one may judge them to be in comparison to others. My idea: Show two people walking together; one is leaning on a cane, wearing a shirt with "Invisible Symptoms" on it. They are looking at another person in a wheelchair, across the street. The caption reads: “Look at -what are you complaining about?"

    1. , you bring up such a great point! All MS symptoms are a pain to deal with. And I love your idea for the comic! Thank you for sharing! Best, Erin, MultipleSclerosis.net Team Member.
