Kaleigh D’Anna was about to turn 28 when she received a life-altering diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, ABC News reported. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition involving damage to the central nervous system.

Despite some initial anger at receiving a diagnosis at such a young age, D’Anna eventually sought a lighthearted way to raise awareness for the condition.

I can choose to be miserable,” she told the outlet, “or I can choose to do something good with this.”

With help from some friends, she put together a video in which she compares MS to an obnoxious little brother. In the video, her annoying brother (MS) hilariously follows her around and makes her life a little more difficult and frustrating.

Check out the video below:

Editor’s note: Multiple sclerosis symptoms vary from person to person. The above video is one person finding humor in the symptoms she experiences.
