Yvonne M deSousa

Yvonne deSousa has worked as a street sweeper, a shell seller, a babysitter, a candy peddler, and a guest house manager, all before the age of sixteen. Later on she worked as a waitress, sales clerk, library assistant, victim’s advocate, and at the front desk of a doctor’soffice.

                     Two years before Yvonne’s diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, a relative volunteered her to write an article for a local newspaper.  Little did she know it was the beginning of a writing career.        When MS threatened to turn her into a lunatic, she started writing more frequently and quickly discovered that writing about the insanity that is MS was helping to keep her sane. 

            Her work has appeared on, and in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Finding My Faith and Something On Our Minds, Volumes 1 and 2.  Yvonne also writes a weekly blog on the website that uses a giggle stick to beat up on MS.  Since finishing MS Madness! A “Giggle More, Cry Less” Story of Multiple Sclerosis, she has started presenting programs designed to help others use humor to help cope with

chronic illness.

            Yvonne enjoys writing, laughing, and resting.  She lives by her personal mottos, “how you deal affects how you feel” and “my MS is not your MS and your MS is weird!”
