This is an extract of a presentation I gave to the employees of a socially minded commercial company this week to help them understand disability more.
“There are some benefits from having MS. I know these are difficult to see and appreciate. I wouldn’t want myself or anybody else to have MS to find out and experience what they are. But slowing life down so markedly has meant I’ve had a lot of time to think. I have thought about things in a way that I hope I would have done without MS but in reality I would have been too busy to slow down.”
So you can look on the bright side and turn a huge negative into something very positive.
