As I've gotten older, one thing I've learned is to lean into people I trust to tell me what I need to hear, whether I like it or not. Don't misunderstand, there will always be people who want to tell you what to do and they won't always be people you trust... Make sure you… Continue reading Control Freak
What a difference a day makes. Today has been amazing. Let’s start there and take a second to celebrate that. I even ran a socially distanced 5K with my husband. We ran 1 mile loops so we could be close to home Incase we needed to bail early. It was not the 10K or the… Continue reading COVID Chronicles-Day 10
We should be in Indianapolis tonight. We should be doing interviews and having a pre-race banquet. We should be catching up with old teammates and meeting new ones.

I see you... lady that seems to be always walking the neighborhood with your headphones on. I am… Continue reading I see you…
How can it feel like this year has lasted 1000 months and flown by at the same time? My last check-up with my neurologist was in February, right before COVID and quarantine hit our state. That visit was a little disheartening and dramatic as we learned about a potential pituitary tumor (thankfully after a look… Continue reading JCV Negative and MS Check-Up!
It’s been a year, am I right? For all of us. I think once this is alllllllllll over (LORD, Jesus... please let there be an end to all this!) we won’t soon forget struggles of 2020. For me, this year began with such fresh hope. 2019 kicked my butt. I remember texting my dear friend… Continue reading Let’s cut ourselves some slack.

This September, we're celebrating something pretty big here at Not Today, MS. This September will mark five years since my MS Diagnosis. Five years of CHOOSING JOY over fear, anxiety, tingling fingers, vertigo, medication side-effects, fatigue, pain, worry and anger.
