A Valentine's Day Challenge

I learned about this 6-Word Valentine's Day Memoir Collection on NPR and I thought I would put it out there to all of you...with a twist.

In six words, say what you love about having Multiple Sclerosis.

Ok. I know this seems a bit nuts but, hear me out! I remember going to a body image workshop once where we all had to identify parts of our body that we hated and then say three things we liked about that particular, hated body part. It really helped and I have a much different relationship with my ass as a result of the exercise.

I also really enjoy the challenge of using limited words to express myself. As regular readers know, brevity is not my strong suit.

Here's mine:

I now give myself permission to rest.

Give it a try!


  1. I'll still laugh, no matter what!

  2. I do not give myself enough permission to rest, I will do that more often. Also, still laugh, no matter what.

  3. Julie,
    New MS Group in Boston. You may want to check it out.

  4. Julie,
    My thoughts are with you right now. Much too much loss in a brief period of time for you. But this one is probably the hardest.
