I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis over 15 years ago, and sometimes it seems like yesterday. I have been in test studies, tried new medications, injections and to no avail.

After one of the many test studies, I have lost my sense of taste and smell. That is hard… you think you have the memory of something, but with no taste or smell you truly cannot recall it. I burn cookies, so a timer is always used. I miss my mother’s chocolate chip cookies. Just when you think you have adapted, bladder issues, dropping things, tripping on my own feet… I have vowed that 2019 will be the year of the things I can do, not the things I can’t. I will keep posting and sharing in the hope that people suffering from MS will find comfort in the fact that they are not alone.
