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)


April A to Z theme unveiled: Describing multiple sclerosis from A to Z

How would you describe multiple sclerosis? This can be trickier than some might suppose.

Kicking MS to the Curb is doing the annual April A to Z Blogging Challenge again this year. That means I have committed to publish 26 alphabetical posts during the month of April. (That might almost be cause for an altogether different sort of commitment. But I digress.)

Today is A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal Day. Here’s my blog topic for this month-long series: Describing multiple sclerosis from A to Z.

Each day will feature a key word that helps paint a picture of life with MS Hope you will stop in at Kicking MS to the Curb often throughout the April A to Z Challenge. Whether you live with MS personally or care about someone who does, I hope this series will prove both encouraging and informative.

  1. My late best friend's younger sister has had MS for some 20 years. I wish you the best of luck and wish you strength and a good month to say what needs to be said.

  2. That is a great theme for the challenge; very informative and educational. What is interesting with multiple sclerosis is how it affects one person versus another, but still a life halting disease. Good luck with the challenge!


    1. Thanks, Betty. Enjoying your blog. I visited from your comment on one of my other sites. (Doing 7 blogs this year for A-Z.)

  3. I wobbled over here via the A to Z Challenge page and I am so happy that I did. I also live with MS and attempt to deal with it in a humourous and positive way rather than the alternative; it would be just too damn depressing that way! I am looking forward to reading your posts. Best of luck and have fun!

  4. I was just saying earlier how much I like it when a blogger chooses a theme that is true to their Blog's overall theme. What a great way to make MS personal and relatable!
