“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that
within me there lay an invincible summer.”
Independent patient advocate and ex-pat living in Ireland for a good while now. How long? Let’s just say that around day 4800, I stopped counting. Life was and still is full of possibilities.
Two and a half years after my arrival, I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Dreams came to a bit of a halt, but since then life became more imaginative, engaging, determined, cheerful and rebellious. Some things I let go of, others I picked up again, like writing, watching rugby games, photography and drinking coffee.
In short. I am me.
