Living Well with
Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis can be a devastating disease that can feel isolating and defeating at times.  However, it doesn't have to be that way.  Despite your circumstances, whether you are living with MS, or are the caregiver, friend, or family member of someone living with MS, you can live well with Multiple Sclerosis.   We want to educate, inspire and empower you to live the best life possible. Most of all, we want to expand people’s beliefs and prove that MS isn't a one-size-fits-all disease, but you can always make the most of your life.

Living Well with Multiple Sclerosis



Hey y'all!  I'm quilt lover Katie Joy and I'm passionate about living simply and living well.  I was raised on a steady stream of fabric scraps and thread.  Dissatisfied with the prospects of life with limitations imposed by multiple sclerosis, including muscle weakness, debilitating fatigue, depression, weight gain, poor eating habits, and poor exercise habits, my next challenge was making lemons out of lemonade and finding a way to incorporate new behaviors into my daily routine.  I became a bit of a simple-living snob, but believe that everyone should live life to the fullest with beauty and creativity incorporated into each and every day, so it’s really more of an egalitarian snobbery.  Thanks for stopping by!! I'm glad you're here.
