my resolution to live one day at a time

I am sitting here looking at the computer screen with a thousand thoughts running through my mind, most of them are self-defeating, like “it’s January 4th, you can’t be starting a blog or making proclamations of new beginnings now! You missed your deadline! Now you have to wait until next year! ” And then I remember what I thought on the first day of this “new year”, what suddenly became so clear to me. Every day is as new as the next. No day is newer than any other. I have so much going on in my head, a ton of things to blog about, but I don’t have to do it all today and I don’t need the ‘perfect’ place to start, I’ve just got to start somewhere. So, here goes another attempt at getting some of this shit off my mind and out into the world!


About kateshunter

First and foremost, I am a mom to 3 amazing and unique kids. Up until I was diagnosed with RRMS in February of 2007, I worked as a full-time paramedic in some high call volume cities. This took me away from my home for an average of 52 hours a week. I have had a difficult time excepting that my MS will probably keep me from ever returning to a full-time job outside of my home until recently, when I realized that there is a blessing in this. I do have remittance of my MS, and although there are symptoms that stay with me all of the time, I am able to enjoy my family and take better care of myself than would be possible if life was still how it was before that fateful day in 2007. I started a blog that is devoted to my MS struggles and triumphs, focusing on my experiences with Tysabri and documenting my relapses. I mentioned early on that I would love to cure my MS with my vegan diet but have since changed my stance on that. I am managing my MS by eating a whole foods, plant-based diet in addition to getting the best MS care available to me at the MS Clinic at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, MA. I'm currently enjoying life in my beautiful home in Western MA. with my partner, my two teenage daughters and my teen-age step-son. My daughter Sunny and I are actively spreading the word about the benefits of a whole foods plant-based diet and hoping to turn kids and grown-ups a like on to the fun that can be had at our CSA farm and in our kitchen!
