A creative way of expressing MS

This post is not about my story, nonetheless it is me sharing the story of those who have found a way to express their stories with MS. It is a short video of an art project done by a young woman with MS. In 2015, Sarah Richter, a patient at the Rocky Mountain MS Center, created a multimedia art project exhibit: Sensory Paradox.

Teaching and explaining to others what we go through can sometimes seem futile. I’ll be honest and say that very will ever understand, thus why we need each other. And now, I’m learning to express the things we go through using a different medium; visually. Also, visually expressing the difficulty of our ever-changing perspectives is hard to do. However, this artist she did a good job of this.

    Thank you for sharing this, CatDancer! I looked up Sarah’s work and found it very interesting! Artistic forms of expression such as this can really be a great way to educate the public on what life with a chronic condition like MS is really like. Thank you again for sharing and I hope Sarah’s work gets the attention it deserves. Best, Erin, Team Member.
