March is Multiple Sclerosis (MS) awareness month, were you aware of that? It is estimated that over 2.3 million people around the world have MS so I think it is fair to say that much awareness is needed and since you don’t really see commercials on TV about MS it is up to us as individuals to advocate and spread awareness about MS. I am not sure how much I can personally accomplish online but for the most part that is where I will be trying to do my part. I have never really done much for Multiple Sclerosis awareness month but this year I am going to try to make more of a difference in spreading awareness even if it is just a small difference. You may feel like you are just one voice and that one voice can’t make a difference but if everyone tries to make their voice heard then collectively we will all influence the conversation about MS online and in 2017 a conversation online is probably the best way for a message to be heard. Just think about how loud a chanting crowd can be; the spotlight of the internet is always pointed at what is making the most noise even if it just starts out as simple chatter on Facebook.
As I sat down to write this post I looked at all my notes about what I wanted to talk about… they are all about not feeling well and that made me think, “All I have really talked about since the beginning of 2015 is how I don’t feel well”. Well guess what, nothing has really changed there so why should I write a post about the same thing over and over? No, let’s just talk about what I did all week. Try to make this a little bit more of a journal.
