Somewhere Smiling

Hi community, my name is Kawanda. I was recently diagnosed with Relapsing MS, but I have been living with this disease for many years. I have painful days, but I also have joyful days. I smile when I awake, I smile when the pain leaves my body, and I smile before I rest. I just started Tysabri infusions.

Is there anyone else receiving Tysabri?

    Hello Kawanda,

    Whoa, your wordsabout smiling just blew me away. Just Smile. It’s harder to feel the pain. It is impossible to be in pain and joy at once, which is what we all with MS ultimately face, but smiling, yep. There is no coincidence, but check my messages if you hold any disbelief. THANK YOU for being assurance in the movment of smile. It will be a modality of treatment for all, one day. When you forget a reason to smile, find one, you’ve got this. We’ve got this. Faith has this. Will keep ears open for any personal friends using Tysabri. Best of luck with it, enjoy your moment. Keep in smiling. Thanks again!
