What is your work and MS Story?
It’s a hot day in early summer of 1997, and I have a big day ahead of me. I work as a film and video producer. I’ve got a cast and crew under my command, we’ve got a lot of work to do, and everyone is looking to me for direction. We’re out on a golf course, walking from location to location, hole to hazard, shooting comedy bits for a client. It is fun, but hard work. At noon, we’re running a little behind. The crew is ahead of me, going up a hill, and I’m trailing after them, tired, stumbling, dragging my foot, and a little off balance. At one point, I even fall. As soon as I catch up and reach the waiting crew, they press forward ahead of me. The cameraman walking next to me says in a soft voice, “Hey, have you been drinking?” Where did he get that idea? I was unsteady, a little stressed and my leg felt weak. I hadn’t had a drink all day, but to him I looked drunk. Well, I wasn't drunk. It was just that I hadn't yet been diagnosed with relapsing MS.
How I find PURPOSE?
