Why I am posting this blog

Nine days ago I was diagnosed with MS. I cried with my husband as we clung together for about 15 minutes. Then, we started to live again!
It may be strange but during the last nine days I have found the deepest peace I have ever known. Suddenly, I just need to live one day at a time. I don't have to make big committments. I don't have to say yes to everyone all the time. I can stop and literally "smell the roses."
Some might claim I'm cursed, that my life is over. I will claim that I have been blessed. I have sudden clarity that little matters except love, peace and a meaningful purpose for existence. I want to help other MS sufferers and their families find the strength and joy in life that I am finding. MS does not have to end your life, it can jump start it!

Hi Nadja, I'm so glad that I spotted your blog as a new addition to Joan's sidebar. (thanks Joan)

I too am sorry that you are now "one of us" but I openly welcome you to our group. I'm just now read through all of your entries thus far and you certainly have shared much in only a matter of a few days.

I look forward to witness your growth on this journey. Many talented writers share bits of themselves on their blogs and I try to keep abreast of new MS bloggers at my site Brass and Ivory. I'm not a talented writer but do attempt to share my knowledge, experience, and soul a bit with others. Please do come visit sometime.

and now I've got to go pester mdmhvonpa and Joan for not alerting me to your new blog here. :)
