OT Back to Pre MS Diagnosis Activity

I am back. I am doing an Art Show in April. I am trying to paint 50 paintings to sell. This is the first real effort in art since 2007. I am also back as a MS activist. I have a big meeting Friday morning. I am also speaking to different groups about living with cancer. I rode Clara twice last week it was great. I feel like I truly have my life back.

The best part of all is I am depression free for the first time in years. I guess the Mindfulness, Reiki, writing to heal, and Yoga are doing this girl some good.

For those who don't know me when I came to the forum I was so depressed I could not stand it. I kinda thought my life was over with the MS. Then I went through Cancer last year. My life was almost over with the cancer.

Now I live with MS and Stage IIIc Ovarian Cancer and a 90% chance of Breast Cancer and I am truly happy. I get excited about what I might do today whether its painting, riding Clara, or just listening to a good book or music while I rest.

Go, Alex!

Enjoy yourself, but pace yourself too. I do remember when you first came on the forum, and it does seem your life has done a complete 180. Pain and troubles are inevitable, so learning to live in the moment and getting the most possible out of life is the mark of wisdom.

I hope you sell loads of paintings.
