On April 28th I plan to participate in Walk MS. Most people think it’s because I like to volunteer, support my local community, and I like to stay active. However, my participation in Walk MS is much more than that.
I have MS.
I haven’t talked much about this because I don’t want anyone to feel bad for me or look at me any differently. No matter what I have been diagnosed with I am still just Jamie. But now, I think I am ready to tell my story in hopes that it will help someone else.
For this post, I thought I would educate you about what Multiple Sclerosis is and how I found out I had it. Around 2.3 million people have MS, but I find that it is still misunderstood by the public.
So, let me educate you and bring awareness to MS. Let me help you understand why events such as Walk MS and organizations such as The National Multiple Sclerosis Society are so important.
Get comfortable…because this is going to be a long one.
