Hi, I am Rebecca (Bec) Hoover. I was diagnosed with MS in 1991 and now, more than 15 years later at age 59, I still have no visible symptoms. I believe this is so because I spent hundreds of hours reviewing research abstracts in PubMed and finding out what scientists and researchers said could be done to make MS more manageable. Because many of the steps involve very low or no costs, I want to share this information others with MS. My goal is to no less than help create the Intelligent Person’s Guide to Beating MS.
Equally important, I want to help smash stereotypes associated with MS. Some of the most impressive, hard working and even sexy people in the world have had MS and I think it is time that those of us with MS challenge the view of us as somehow not capable of much. Please recall Paul Wellstone was a U. S. Senator for Minnesota who had MS. Barbara Jordan who gave one of the 100 speeches of the 20th century had MS.
This blog is about challenging ourselves and the world and taking back our power.
