Marcia Hirst: Don’t Let Multiple Sclerosis Take the Joy Out of Your Life

Posted July 23rd, 2012 by

“The benefit of sharing on PatientsLikeMe is the support.  For me, it doesn’t matter what I’m going through, there are people there that understand.  They’re not judgmental.  They get it.  They’re there too.  I get lots of emotional moral support.”

Multiple Sclerosis Patient Marcia

Back in June, we shared with you a video interview with PatientsLikeMe member Lissa that was conducted by our partner Patient Power.  Today, we’re pleased to present a second Patient Power interview with another member, Marcia Hirst.  A wife and mother of 11 children, Marcia, 52, has been living with multiple sclerosis (MS) since she was a young girl – although she didn’t know it at the time.

Check out her moving interview below to find out about the lifelong adjustments she’s made due to MS and learn why “the puzzle pieces are coming together” now that she’s discovered a community of 28,000+ MS patients at PatientsLikeMe.
