My heart broke when tests confirmed I have multiple sclerosis, but in a much different way than when my marriage ended.
While there are jerks out there who misuse disability-access parking spaces, most of the time, the people utilizing them — ahem, me — have legit reasons for doing so.
I would have to go off of my medication for months, and MS relapses are more likely to happen right after giving birth.
Before I was diagnosed, someone who thought she was being supportive said to me, "Don't worry. Pretty people don't get MS."
