MS SUFFERERS BILL OF RIGHTS
by Sue Ellen Dickinson

My one and only goal is to expose the truth about MS on many different levels. Truth about what happens to human beings afflicted with this monster disease we know as Multiple Sclerosis. 

And the truth isn't always colored pretty or packaged like what we wish it to be.  In fact, in this arena, it's about as demeaning, demoralizing and devastatingly cruel to the human spirit as anyone can ever imagine anything to be.  And unless it's experienced first hand, it's nearly impossible to fully comprehend.

In my book, "No More MS, My Journey Back To Life", there's a chapter I've devoted specifically to this subject called "What Nobody Else Can See".  There, I've pulled back the curtain and exposed to the bright light of day, the raw reality of this monster and I describe exactly what MS can do to wreak havoc on a human life, and as in my case, attempt to destroy the very essence and purpose of its'  existence.

But there's one crucial point that's often overlooked in this mix.  And that is, that the world tends to forget that we MS sufferers are human beings of equal value and standing in this world in relation to others around us.  But reality is. . .the truth is.....that we have a place and purpose here, just like everyone else.....and that's important to remember. 

The ridicule, disdain and disgust that you may endure from others who charge you with the responsibility of "having" MS, and perhaps even blame  you for your affliction, as if you'd volunteered for it,  can easily lead anyone to feelings of hopelessness and the assumption that you may never be released from the death-grip of your captor. 

I know€¦..because I've been there.  But I refused to believe that. 

And although the road was a difficult one by any measure on my 'journey back to life',  which was littered and laced with sometimes unthinkable hardship and the heart-sickening loss of support by some of the people I held dearest to me, I never, ever gave up hope.  I believed then as I do now, that God has a greater plan and purpose for each and every one of us, and it was up to me to have complete faith in that....no matter what. 

I also finally came to realize that I really WAS equal to everyone else in the world around me, and from that, I was inspired to write this which I want to share with you now.  I hope you'll find value in it and the inspiration to look deep within your heart and come to believe as I do, that your life is a great and magnificent gift, and that God has a greater plan and purpose for you.
