Female veteran with RRMS: "When you have the heart of a warrior, but a body with limitations"

"I no longer take for granted all of the things that my body enabled me to do. It would take something away from me, but then it would eventually give most of it back. I’ve always been able to see until I wasn’t. Then it was returned, and I was so grateful for it! Grateful for every sweet little moment with my kids that I got to witness. Grateful even for the ability to drive again after the feeling returned to my legs. Grateful also for the Department of Veterans Affairs. Somehow life was all the more precious after the experience."

From Momentum magazine, written by a female vet: www.nationalmssociety.org/news-and-magazine/momentum-magazin...

With temps already rising, here's something to think about.

When I swam with MS, I got so much energy! And muscle relief, slept like a log, and felt so much freedom in the water. (Then there was my poor ol' scooter parked poolside, looking all forlorn with separation anxiety.)

The MSAA Swim for MS website has all kinds of info on the ways swimming can benefit you. Htps://aquatics.mymsaa.org/

So jump in — the water's fine.
