I’m in the process of being accepted into Southern New Hampshire University’s Masters program for English and creative writing. At the onset of living with ALS, I earned my Bachelors degree for English literature. I always had a dream of being a PhD, and the Masters degree is the last before a doctorate.
When I say “ALS means nothing to me” or “I am living with the disease” I am saying, despite outside appearances, I don’t accept ALS is a part of me; it is outside of me. With that, I won’t let this disease define me.
If you are living with this horrible diagnosis, I invite you to mindfully disconnect your disease and follow your dreams. Do what you want to do. Tell ALS off and never invite it in. You have the mental strength to achieve your goals!
Psalm 28:8 – The LORD is their strength, and He is the saving strength of His anointed. (KJV)
