The Gift of Multiple Sclerosis is the autobiography of Linda Mokeme. At age 32, I woke up in a hospital bed. I was paralyzed on the entire left side of my body. After two weeks of extensive testing, Medical Doctors diagnosed me as having Multiple Sclerosis (MS). MS has the highest rates of depression among all disabilities. I have learned how to reframe everything and I have minimal depression. I live an energized, full and loving life. "The Gift of Multiple Sclerosis" shares how I moved from Chicago to live in Nigeria. It contains the powerful values I learned in Nigeria. It contains the natural medicine choices I made to overcome MS... I inspire others and my autobiography is my "gift" to pass it forward.
