MS Positive attitude

I suffer from MS and was diagnosed at 14. I am currently 20 and I found that every video related to MS is patronising. I have created a short documentary on the condition and how having a positive attitude helps. The documentary can be found here

Having a positive attitude can help to keep you from getting stressed and stress is what makes things worse we're fighting a disease with no cure yet so instead of stressing we need to use that energy thinking of ways to make our life better and the number one key is to trust and obey God.

Priyal - Welcome to our little lesion encrusted world :-)

What an excellent film! I am in complete agreement with you on the positive attitude approach to MS. My attitude has been "OK, I have MS. Now what do I do about it?"

Like the one guy in you film, I decided it was time to clean up my diet and start getting regular exercise. I don;t know if these changes are impacting my MS, but they make me feel better!

I know I have limitations and gait peculiarities associated with my MS. They are what they are and I can't control how others react to them, so I don't spend a lot of time worrying about it :-) Did you know that there is a Facebook group called "We're not drunk, we have MS!"

I applaud your looking at the glass as half full :-)

Minor point, strictly to inform others: "short" = 11:43.  Can't watch it on a restroom break, but probably at lunch if you're a brown bagger.

I'll check it out after work, but will say that I like the concept, so far.

Well done -honest but still positive.  Have you entered it into any competitions? I'm not surewhat you might have in the UK - I assume you are there due to the accents of the people in your film - but here in the states there are a few that solicit films about medical conditions.
best., Laura

Thank you for sharing!

Before my diagnosis, I would not have considered myself overly positive, but with everything I have endured over the last 10 months, I am grateful for the little things and recognize how much worse things could be.

Great video. Thanks for sharing it with us. I have MS and Cancer and I agree attitude is key. We are human and for those times people can't have a positive attitude that is okay too.
