How im feeling in words. Very spot on!!!!!!

Came across this, i feel it puts my feelings into words. Very spot on.

Dear Multiple Sclerosis,

I want you to know that you are not the boss of me. Sure, you have made my life a living Hell. You may have caused me countless tears. You may be the reason I have lost seemingly great friendships. You may make my body weak, my thoughts a jumbled mess, my body tremble & my vision blurry, but you will never, & I mean NEVER, have the satisfaction of stealing my hope.

Hope is what keeps me going when I feel overwhelmingly discouraged & depressed. It gives me the strength I need when I’m feeling completely worn out from fighting every day. It helps me keep my head held high & my heart strong when, in reality, I feel as if I have lost every bit of passion and courage I thought I had left.

You see, I have hope in a better tomorrow.

I have hope that one day a cure for MS will be found.

I have hope that my life matters to the people I come in contact with, both online & in person.

I have hope that, regardless of the struggle, I will find a smile to brighten my day.

I have hope that there are still good, caring, honest, loving people in this world who are willing to stand up for the disabled to help us fight.

MS, I know your plan is destruction, but no matter how hard you try, I will not be defeated. I am a warrior…and that’s what warriors do…we rise up!

We may make it through our day exhausted, weary, & feeling like a complete & total wreck, but we will not give up. You’ve messed with the wrong group of people. We are fighters, we are strong, we are mighty, & we NEVER give up…hear us ROAR!

Have a great day peeps,
let me hear you (cough cough)


Wow! That told it! So many words appertain to my own journey with PPMS…24years now.

A few months ago, I felt like giving up and couldn’t see a future worth living.

I had my own awakening with the Lord and it saved me.
This doesn’t mean I am fine…I’m not…but I’m fighting on.

nice sentiments - although at the moment I dont feel like a warrior and you are more likely to hear me sob rather than roar - but hey, tomorrow is another day x
