Don't Be the Patient

Be the friend.  Be the colleague.  Be the partner, lover, and best friend.  Be the artist.  Be the writer.  Be the surfer, swimmer, and diver.  Be the gardener.  Be the cyclist.  Be the horn player, conductor, and flutist.  Be the bingo player.  Be the deep sea fisher.  Be the cousin, sister, and daughter.  Be the baker.  Be the photographer.  Be the wine connoisseur, cheese monger, and chef.  Be the person other than just the “Multiple Sclerosis” patient.  



  1. love it. a great reminder not to let our diagnoses define us!

  2. I love this! I think this is something that people like us who have a chronic disease should say over and over. You are such an inspiration and I love you!
