      For Debbie Petrina’s common sense generates creativity, imagination, and practicality. Back in 1980, she was 25 when her aggressive MS symptoms started. Without the information, treatments, and support available nowadays, she used common sense to get through each day.

      Debbie also reached for her creativity, imagination, and practicality to overcome each obstacle MS brought. She volunteered with the National MS Society and soon after became a trained peer counselor for the society. For nearly 40 years, she has helped others living with MS.

      Debbie believes that “no one has a choice about getting MS, but we all have a choice about whether we are going to let it control or manage our life.”

      Debbie, you’re a true legend!

      Now back to our MS Community: When there was little information to help manage your MS, what kept you going?

      Love Debbie’s optimistic outlook of whether re MS ‘we are going to let it control or manage our life’. In my case, though I’ve done a lot to act like this, I’m well aware that I have only managed it due to a loving and dedicated family unit. Not everyone has this. And indeed MS has affected me so much mentally that I’m v. lucky they’ve stuck with me!
      Also as a writer I still have a working left arm. AI is still too terrible to write with verbally.
      How do u feel about Debbie’s fighting spirit?
