I am a new subscriber to your magazine and just read your latest issue. The most inspirational item for me was “Accepting Multiple Sclerosis” (Speak Up, Nov./Dec. 2008) by Ruth Just. What a wonderful attitude she expressed. I am sure it will help and inspire many sufferers of different afflictions.

I want to thank you for “Accepting Multiple Sclerosis” by Ruth Just. I feel like she was writing that to me, personally. I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in April 2008. At first, I was so happy to finally get a diagnosis, after years of hearing “We don't know what's wrong with you.” Once it settled in, I went through the anger, bitterness, and sadness of having MS.
It's been more than eight months, and I'm still going through the same emotions, wondering if I'll ever feel happy again. So, acceptance is very difficult for me right now. The article says that the first thing you have to do is accept MS, and you must accept it over and over again. I cut out the article, and have it posted on my desk at work. Hopefully with the positive advice from this article, I will soon be able to accept MS and move on to a happier life.
