The Lessons of MS
You learn a lot about yourself when you have a condition like multiple sclerosis, especially when you develop it at a young age. Watch as Millennials share their most important and personal MS lessons.
Daria: I've learned about patience, about being positive. Nafisa: Resilience. Rafe: That I can get through it. Crystal: That I would be able to not just deal with it but become even better from it. Nafisa: If I were to, like, get anxious about every single time I'm not feeling well, then like I would just be in like a mental rut. That's been like the biggest thing I'm always trying to remember. Daria: I don't want to be 40 and be depressed about having MS. I want to continue to live my life and be happy and rejoice, even if today is not a good day, you know. Kim: If I am not having a good day and I really wanted to do something. It took me years to understand. You might need to use a cane just for today. Rafe: I chose to run the marathon because it was out of fear initially. Out of fear of not been able to walk again. And now it's out of... I really love it. Kim: Like it's not giving in. And I just think that like I'm giving in to using a walker, I'm giving in to using a cane. And it's not, it's just helping you get from point A to point B with a little help. And you might not need it the next day. Crystal: To be mobile again when I wasn't for a long time. To be able to overcome that and feel like I'm even healthier now in a way. You know, I was able to climb Kilimanjaro. I exercise daily. I'd feel really good. I feel really great.
