A few weeks ago I decided to take a break from writing. My family took a much-needed vacation for a few days (I’ll be writing about it in June.) I stepped away from my computer and the daily task (and love) of writing to see what the spring air had to offer. There’s so much in nature that’s restorative for my soul and this time was no different.
Now I’m off again. I’ve been asked by the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers to attend and blog about their annual event, a unique gathering of people who are committed to improving the lives of people with Multiple Sclerosis.
Everyone from neurologists, nursing professionals, scientists, mental health professionals, members of the non-profit community, corporate supporters and many others will be discussing the latest treatments, research, genetics, robotics, nutrition, gender issues and so much more.
With networking opportunities, exhibits with the latest technological advances and some fun social events I look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones.
Talking to people who I only read about in my daily research? That will be the equivalent of spending time with my favorite icons,
So I’ll be back to writing again very soon. In the meantime this tweet was a good reminder of why I do what I do. This person read my post about “Why I’m Thankful for My Diagnosis.” If I make a difference in even one person’s life then I know that what I do is all worth it.
