  • The Power of Words

    Every single time someone called me “pretty” growing up, I cringed. As an adult, it’s taken some time and an acknowledgement of ugly days, but I can accept the compliment.

  • Dealing with Ignorance About Our Marriage

    Being married to a paraplegic is no different than being married to anyone else. There are small details that are different.

But after a spinal cord injury I think the need for this grows exponentially, and it’s […]

  • Jessie's Multiple Sclerosis

    My battle with multiple sclerosis began several years ago with several battles of optic neuritis. I was misdiagnosed many times because MS is not usually diagnosed in your 20’s. I was a few years too late and a few years too early for my doctor to want to consider it as a possibility for my […]

    I’m very excited to write my first official blog! I thought I’d tell you a bit about me and my plans for this blog. Feel free to speak up and tell me what you think and if there are any topics you’d like me to discuss (or not to discuss if you’ve heard it too […]
