in the 60's the diagnosis was an examination by neurologist and review of your medical history. After the first diagnosis of MS I sought a second neurological opinion who agreed with diagnosis.
When I was at my lowest point, with paralysis in my leg and arm I could only rest. I think during that time of quiet I resolved many personal issues and on hindsight was meditating on some level. My intuition told me strongly not to place credence on the diagnosis and followed up with 'do something creative' each day which I did faithfully and the following year I was completely free of all symptoms.
EDITOR’S NOTE: As of October 2020 Mary is thriving post-diagnosis. Her update:
I am much more aware of diet, tend to eat less gluten and dairy but the healing methods I used half a century ago still are very much part of my lifestyle - practice of gratitude, creativity, quiet and stillness. Being in nature is ever more important to to me as I age - I think it is beneficial to have 30 minutes a day in the sun then sit in the shade and simply be at one with the beauty of nature.
I am missing the cruising speaker circuit at the moment because of COVID but my purpose is writing and book deadlines. I see even more during this time of uncertainty the importance of where you put your focus. Putting my focus on writing, family, and embracing nature. 50 years ago tthere was little known about MS and there was no internet to do research, which meant I was thrown on my own resources. My intuition. in my case it guided me each step of the way and the icing on the cake of intuitive messages was focusing on creativity. Simple but still stands to day. Focusing on what I loved was key in my recovery and still is key to my well-being today. You can read the full story in my book A Journey of Creative Healing available on Amazon.
Yes - unresolved grief for loss of my husband, childhood trauma from WW1 and sheer exhaustion from looking after two infant children.
