I'm a lucky woman. Lucky in so many ways.
Yes, I have MS and have for many years. In retrospect, I've probably had it for at least 35 years.
But, I don't have cancer or ALS, or many other fatal diseases.
And, I'm lucky as far as my MS goes. I'm still able to do most of the activities I want to do. I do walk with a slight limp, and at a much slower pace than most people. When I walk up or down stairs, I have to do so with concerted effort, and to the left for balance issues. I can't wear high heels anymore. But, most of my effects are the unseen, untalked about issues that people don't discuss in public, even we health care workers.
Yes, I'm a lucky woman, but many of my fellow MS sufferers are not.
