World MS day


Today is World MS Day. This year, we are asked to share what makes us “stronger than MS”. For me, what makes me feel strong are the people that support me through it everyday. First and foremost, my family, who I would never have gotten through the past few years without. Supporting me through every hospital visit, every doctors appointment, and every bad day. My friends, the ones that stuck around and continued to remember that I am still the person I always was, even though I may do things a bit differently now. Also the new friends that I’ve met because of my MS, who I am so very thankful for. My boyfriend, who makes me feel like it’s okay when I’m not up to doing something we had planned on, and understands no matter what, reminding me that it’s not my fault. These people all make it so I feel like I can get through it even when I’m at my worst, and remind me that I have to fight, even when I feel like I can’t.

For them, I try every day to be #StrongerThanMS



World MS Day

So today was world MS day. Here in Toronto, they lit up the CN tower and city hall red in support, which I think is pretty cool. I know they’ve done this before, but I didn’t actually know about it. Probably because this time last year I was still in a bit of a weird place with my MS. We are on slightly better terms now. I wouldn’t exactly say we’re really good friends, but we’re working on it. I’ve also actually only recently realized that the “awareness colour” (if that’s what you call it) for MS in Canada is red, I’m pretty sure in most places it’s orange. I don’t know why that is, maybe it’s just Canada trying to be unique.

Anyways, here’s a really cool picture of the CN tower… that I didn’t take, because I can’t actually see it from my apartment ;)
