I met with someone this week that was recently diagnosed with MS. She’s justifiably having a hard time, and I’m glad she sought out the NMSS self-help group. She contacted me and attended our group meeting. We agreed to have lunch following the meeting, and at the end of our long lunch she hugged me and said she felt better. This was the best gift she could have given me.
As I compile this list, I recognize I strive to do these things and I may be better at it sometimes than others. We’re all human. I’m not the person I strive to be all the time, but I’m getting closer each day. I may have more to add to this list as I grow and learn more, but this is a good start. I’d love to hear suggestions!
