It sure has been a while since I’ve posted anything here. I guess I sort of ran out of things to say, which anyone who knows me probably wouldn’t believe ;)
I’m not really sure at this point if anyone still reads this, but I thought I’d check in and hopefully get back into the swing of things. So, what’s new in my world? Well a lot actually! I’ve of course been dealing with the good old health issues as per usual, but other than the MS side of things, my life is going pretty darn well. I’m in the process of moving, which I’m sure nobody enjoys doing, but I’m excited because I’ve found a lovely place that I’ll be sharing with my lovely boyfriend! We’ve also planned a trip to Jamaica late November, so stay tuned for a travelling MSer post, Jamaica edition!
I’m also still volunteering, with the online forum www.shift.ms, and with the MS Society here in Canada. I’m currently lending a hand here and there with an upcoming conference they’re hosting for young adults living with, or affected by MS. I’m even going to be speaking on a panel discussion at it, so that’s pretty exciting! It’s going to be held in southern Ontario, so if by any chance someone out there reads this and is interested, or might know someone who is, just visit http://mssociety.ca/youngadultforum
So life is going pretty well in spite of all of the tough stuff, and it feels pretty good to be able to say that! It was recently my 3 year MSaversary (as I like to call it) and looking back to when this all started, I don’t think I really thought I would have a lot of the things that have come since then. I don’t think I truly believed I would find happiness, and was just grieving the things I lost instead of having hope for what I might gain. I’m pretty thankful for all the good that has come since then, and how I continue to get through it.
So that’s all from me for now, but I’ll be back!
