Mending Nerves by Robert Cusinato

This story was inspired by my relationship with Multiple Sclerosis as both provider and “patient.” I have had to reimagine my life and all of the roles that I play. Failing to accept the fact that I have a chronic disability will only lead to further decline. As a physiotherapist working with individuals with a myriad of diagnoses, I am motivated to push them and push myself as this is the only way to overcome the cards that they (\we) have been dealt.
