Living with M.S.

"Living with M.S. is sort of like training for a long race. The harder you try, and the longer you keep at it, the stronger you become.
Eventually, looking back, you may be amazed at the power you possessed, even when you had no idea it was within your reach." (Linda Ann Nickerson)

Welcome to my M.S. world of MyStery.

Welcome to the land of the living, even if we live with M.S.


Many suppose multiple sclerosis is a death sentence, but it’s not. It’s a daily series of win/lose tradeoffs, valley/mountain treks, and more.

People don’t die of M.S. 

Life goes on, even if it grows ever more difficult as we go.

For many MSers, a diagnosis isn’t just the beginning of the journey.

More often, by the time the medical community finally figures out what to call a person’s curious constellation of symptoms, it almost seems as if life at last makes more sense.

To the MSer, the newly acquired label gives a name to countless mysterious experiences, ailments, and scary sporadic symptoms.

Maybe so.

That’s the world of M.S.

Count me in. I belong to the innumerable and ever-growing community of folks who face this curious and challenging condition each day.

Sometimes it almost makes sense. Mostly, it doesn’t. But we keep on slugging and stomping and standing – as long as we can.


Join us for the journey, will you?

Kicking MS to the Curb will dig into the doubts, the daring, and the daily determination that goes with the M.S. life. We’ll look at coping strategies, helpful products, practical hints and how-to’s, and even examine some of the emotions that go along with it all.

As we do, we will refuse to let the MonSter win.

Stick around for stories, struggles, inside information, inspiration, and even humor. Yep, that's right.

And feel free to share your own M.S. story, as you read.
