Sometimes I sit down to write this blog and have no clue where to begin. What can I write that others will find helpful? I can't possibly say anything more relevant or useful than what all the great expert advice this site has to offer. I know that for a fact this statement isn't true. When I was first diagnosed with MS, sure I needed to read all the experts opinions, get all of the true facts from doctors and healthcare professionals. However, sometimes the best advice or the best shoulder to cry on was a fellow patients. Why you may ask am I writing this now? This blog is read by many patients and maybe some who are just being diagnosed or just finding out what a blog even is. Everyone of us has something important to share. I'm reaching out to all of you who are reading this today. Consider becoming a blogger, volunteer, donator, or just a friend to a MS patient. Every little bit or way helps and makes a difference.
It is kickoff day here at my house. That usually means cooler weather and happiness for this MS patient. However, yet again the A/C is on and the hoodies are still put away. That's ok, relief for me soon to come. Tom Brady will make me happy until the heat is gone. Stay cool everyone and I promise I will have more pertinent MS blogging next time. Enjoy your day whatever way makes you smile.
