HELLO! Hey, I have Multiple Sclerosis. Scary, no? I have lesions on my brain! My eyesight isn't good, and it gets pretty bad with a good sweaty workout. That kinda ticks me off, since I  l o v e   good, sweaty workouts! Hey, I just figured out that an anagram for Swarthmore is "Sweat Mohrr." Pretty good, huh? wow.

Anyway, I am quite the unique individual. MS usually strikes women, aged 30-50. Hi, I'm a 21-year-old MAN. dammit. I kinda see it as my punishment for wanting to be different than everyone else. So now I'm the only MS sufferrer at Swat, anyway, at least that the health center knows about. yahoo, I feel so special.

Well if this little tirade has made you think that I'm a cynical young fart, then you're right. But I also have a much more pleasant side that is demonstrated in the above Story. Give it a read, especially if you're currently dealing with this fool disease.

Here are some links for those of you that want to know more, or maybe want to know how to help:
