Some favorite tunes highlight messages about perseverance, while others acknowledge the wild ups and downs of life with multiple sclerosis.

Music is powerful, and can connect us in ways that other experiences can’t. It can help us express difficult feelings that we have trouble articulating in other ways.

Music also inspires us, helps lift our spirits (or, alternately, helps us release a good cry!). It can transport us to the past, and give us hope for the future.

There’s even some indication that music can help people heal from a variety of medical conditions.

Some people connect with the lyrics, while for others the melody and the rhythm hit hard. Either way, most of us have experienced hearing that one song that just completely resonates with our reality, and we feel seen.
