Good morning y’all! I want to wish you a great day and I hope you are feeling well! I actually received an email on Tuesday from Anuj Agarwal, the founder of Feedspot notifying me that my blog had been selected by the panelist as one of the top 50 Multiple Sclerosis blogs on the internet. I do want to share the link with you as well https://blog.feedspot.com/multiple_sclerosis_blogs/.
I am still at almost at a complete loss for words have found this out, but also so incredible thankful! It is an honor to be associated with blogs created by Jen with trippingthroughtreacle.wordpress.com, Heather and Dizzy at dinosaursdonkeysandms.com, Angela at fuckms.ca, Megan with bbhwithms.com, Ashleyslifewithms.wordpress.com and many others. These ladies are absolutely breathtaking and so full of inspiration; I only hope that I can live up to their standards with as much grace as they have!
I started my blog in July of 2017 with the intentions to not only raise awareness about Multiple Sclerosis, but also to inspire and encourage others battling this illness to keep moving forward and never give up! I have always believed that giving up is never an option no matter how difficult the journey becomes. I have wanted to share the experiences I have dealt with over the almost 18 years I have lived with Multiple Sclerosis to shine light on what you can and will overcome! I find it extremely important to always do our own research on ALL medications that may be suggested from the specialists because it is our body that will be dealing with the possible side effects and we all know our body’s way better than any doctor ever will!
Since starting my blog, I have had the opportunity to communicate with SO many people all over the world that are either living with Multiple Sclerosis or another chronic illness. All these of people have taught me so much about their illness and how they manage their illness, which has been very enlightening for me! Those that I have been able to have continued communication with about Multiple Sclerosis have also taught me a great deal about things I honestly did not know about or possibly was told but I ignored completely! When I was first diagnosed, I did not want to hear or believe ANYTHING my sweet and patient doctor had to say, so it went in one ear and out the other. Sadly, most of what he said back then was actually true, who knew?
I feel privileged to have built so many friendships with people in other states and countries because we have so much in common due to the struggles we face daily! This is a network of others that truly understand what it is like to live with an illness that does not yet have a cure, but hold onto the hopes a cure will be found sooner than later!
I would like to sincerely thank all of my followers for your continued support over the past 10 months! I appreciate everyone that takes the time to read my posts and make fabulous comments; this has enabled us to build great friendships even if we have not actually met in person! The support we are able to offer each other online is fantastic and incredibly helpful! For anyone that has not been able to visit Jen, Heather & Dizzy, Angela, Megan or Ashley’s site, they all provide great information and are truly lovely ladies, you will never regret checking out their sites! Always remember that I am sending y’all lots of love and comfort daily!
