If you've read our story you already know I have MS. While that is major, there is so much more to who I am. There is no denying that the MS is integral but it doesn't define me. I am a wife, a mother, a gramma;
a writer, an artist, a former teacher. I am a baker, a gardener, a reader, a dreamer, a friend. And I am a woman who has a disability. I have MS.
To be honest, there are days when I feel like all I am is a woman with MS. It grabs me from the inside and holds on so tight that it overwhelms me. I feel tired and I don't want to face the day. My positive identities disappear. It's a complex relationship.
When David began researching the website, I knew that I wanted to make a contribution. As Disabled Discounts comes together, state by state, I'd like to create a space where disabled people and their caregivers share their thoughts and feelings, a place to talk about our concerns and feel supported by the strength of a community who understands us as individuals.
