Reflection on the New Year

I always like to spend time around January 1st reflecting on the past year; doing a sort of "life review," and analyzing the success, failures, and learning opportunities. I am always amazed at how many things have changed during the year, and it takes the perspective of time to realize that. Sometimes, we feel that everything is "stuck," standing still, and no progress is being made. However, if we simply turn back and look at how far we have come....we can see that everything changes.

Often, I hear MS patients asking why a cure hasn't been found yet, why it seems that no progress has been made. I would argue, quite the contrary. From a historical perspective, we can see incredible progress. We have come such a long way in our fight against this disease, even though we haven't quite reached the end of the battle. We have 12 disease modifying drugs in 2015, and in 1992 there were none. Isn't that a striking statistic? In just over 30 years, MS has gone from being untreatable, to having 12 possible treatment options. Please keep up hope, and check out my guest blog for Race to Erase MS: "The History of MS: We've Come a Long Way".......


Happy New Year!!
