A Positive Attitude Makes a World of Difference When Coping with Duchenne

The other day, I was sitting in Haute Cakes Caffe chowing down on a carnitas breakfast burrito, when an older woman sitting next to me said something that took me by surprise.

“You have a really great outlook,” she said, as I motored up to grab a to-go box from the front counter. She noticed my smile and how friendly I was with people at the restaurant. All I could say in reply was, “Thank you.”

But those six words left an indelible mark. It was enough for me to realize having Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) gives me an opportunity to positively impact those around me.

The way we conduct ourselves in the face of a tough situation is contagious and noticeable. A glass-half-full approach helps me cope with DMD and helps others to see the joy of life.
