I’m a patient who lost her patience. I’ve dealt with the symptoms, the flares, the indignities of life with MS – and I can still find a lot to laugh about. Attitude is everything, as they say. Well, my attitude is to talk to my MS with disdain and treat it the way I think it deserves to be treated: I give it the finger and say “FUMS.” I want our community, our patient population and their loved ones, supporters and caregivers to band together and learn from each other – teach each other what works for us in all facets of living life with MS. This includes how-to-work from home, dealing with family life, dealing with doctors, raising money for research, learning about new therapies, trying alternatives, Oh – and reminding each other every now and then, that you have to say “FUMS” to make sure it knows who’s boss!
