Shortly after starting a MSc. in neuroscience, I was diagnosed with the neurological disease Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

This is what they call irony.


Living with MS has changed me in many ways, but the most disturbing way has been its effect on my thinking. Sometimes my brain does not work well: it feels foggy heavy disconnected, it works differently than it did before.

This is frustrating and this is fascinating.


So, join me as I explore the parallel experience of losing my mind and studying the mind, and the challenges and triumphs along the way.
