There's something else going on, just a little different! Christine Rupp follows this motto. Both on her blog and in the social networks she gives many insights into her everyday life, which she has been living with multiple sclerosis for over 30 years now. Which chances she missed due to the early diagnosis and what she wants to achieve with her blog, she tells us on REHACARE.com.
Name: Christine Rupp Age: 47 City: Ahaus, Germany Occupation: Office administrator Impairment: disabled due to Multiple Sclerosis
Christine Rupp: My nephews and my own misadventures, Louis de Funes and so much more...
What have you always been wanting to do and why have you never done this so far?
Christine Rupp: A year abroad to refresh my English skills. I got MS when I was 15 years old and just didn't have the guts to go. Unfortunately.
Which person has influenced you most? And why?
Christine Rupp: My base – my deceased parents – because they were always at my side with advice and action and had a great solution for everything.
You have the chance to become the Commissioner for the Disabled. What would you do first?
Christine Rupp: Lower all curbs; provide sufficient parking for disabled people; provide sufficient financial support for those who are disadvantaged by their disability; provide sufficient assistance for those who need it; ensure that more people with disabilities get a job. There are a lot of things...
What is especially near and dear to you?
Christine Rupp: My MS-Blog – with which I can motivate, educate and help other people.
I would like to be... Christine Rupp: ...healthy and carefree again. Then I could work in my dream profession as a dentist and take part in "Doctors without Borders" and help.
Which question would you like answered the most?
Christine Rupp: What is the cause of multiple sclerosis?
What else I wanted to say...
Christine Rupp: You can also be happy and active with MS. There is still something possible, just a little different... We can't change the wind, but set the sails differently!
