I’m a wife, mother, friend, and more. I am also a patient in the medical community. I make a conscious decision to choose joy.~ amidst a 14-yr diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, kidney stones, asthma. Medically labeled as permanent disabled in my mid-40′s. Caretaker for my mother as she fights Alzheimer’s and bladder cancer. I choose joy because this is the best option. Because the other option. . . is not an option.
