I was seventeen the year I graduated from high school, moved out on my own, and found out I had Multiple Sclerosis. Two out of three isn't so bad! In my book, Cures are For Pussies, A Comedian's Adventures with MS (and Other Incurable Diseases), I talk about growing up with a chronic illness and learning how to live well and keep laughing, because of MS, not despite it. After 25 years with MS, I am doing stand-up comedy, which is great because I shouldn't be able to stand up AT ALL. My story of self-healing is recommended for anyone who needs proof of the power of the mind!
