I really don't like having MS but I'm glad that even though I have a chronic illness I'm in pretty good health. I struggle with many annoying symptoms but overall I feel very fortunate that I'm doing so well.
I AM THANKFUL FOR my neurologist and medical team. I feel lucky to have such a great MS Center w/ an amazing medical team just minutes from my apartment. Living in Boston gives so many options in regard to top notch hospitals and knowing that I have a neurologist that I trust w/ my health is very reasurring.
I AM THANKFUL FOR medication to treat MS. I can't believe I am writing this but I'm thankful for Avonex (even though I hate doing shots). I'm thankful that I can use a medication that can keep me healthy and hopefully keep my MS from getting worse. I am also thankful for the many medications I have taken or am currently taking to deal w/ all the annoying symptoms.
I AM THANKFUL FOR health insurance. I am fortunate to have a job that gives me the option to have great health insurance. My health insurance covers all of my medications, treatments, appointments, etc (I pay co-pays of course). Without health insurance I would literally be many thousands of dollars in debt.
