Sharing some of my MS experience


Welcome to my blog!  I am an African American mother who was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2005.  Married with two children, I often am asked about my diagnosis by many other people of all races.  Because I am also a member of the Soka Gakkai International (SGI –, I am often asked how my buddhist pratice equips me to deal successfully with this auto-immune disease.  One thing that my practice has helped me learn is that there is always both a positive and negative way to react to every experience.  That is why my blog is titled “misfortune” because along with the physical challenges I experience every day, MS has brought me a boatload of wonderful experiences and realizations.  I hope to share some of those with you in future posts – not to brag about myself, but to help you (and me!) remember that all is not lost, and that even with this type of health challenge there is always a great deal for which to be thankful.  I hope that you enjoy reading this blog and I look forward to receiving your comments!
