Fall is such a lovely time of year - I love watching the trees change color on my daily commute, pulling sweaters out of the back of my closet, and cozying up with a hot cup of coffee. The natural transition of the season usually lends itself to taking stock before the end of the year.
I know it does for me.
Last month I “celebrated” a milestone: 8 years since my diagnosis of Relapse Remitting Multiple Sclerosis. Celebrated is not the best term… but a milestone never-the-less.
In April of 2011 I was diagnosed with Relapse Remitting Multiple Sclerosis, or RRMS. About 6 months of unexplained symptoms lead up to the ER visit that lead to my diagnosis. I would consider myself one of the lucky ones – some go years or decades without finding their diagnosis. (See Selma Blair or Art Alexakis)
