    Living An Adventurous Life With Multiple Sclerosis

    What is the biggest risk you have ever taken? Was it one that led you on a grand adventure to far-off places you never dared to go before? For many, that is a bit extreme. For some, life would be boring without an unexpected twist or turn. For Melissa Cook, the author of The Call of the Last Frontier, blogger, and YouTube star there is never a dull moment.

    Writing Your Own Definition of Health With MS

    How have you grown since your diagnosis of multiple sclerosis? We all have, whether we like it or not. Maybe in the knowledge of the disease, maybe spiritually, or could it be that you have grown your knowledge and understanding of what a healthy lifestyle means to you? Growth as a core value can be somewhat daunting. I know from experience. It is like I can never get enough knowledge and experience. Chatting with Amy, she has grown in her life with MS to understand her journey is to SOLVE the problems she can and DISSOLVE the problems she can't.
