The whole purpose of this blog is to share what I’ve learned, and what has helped me through life living with Multiple Sclerosis.
I’m 35 years old, and was diagnosed on July 22, 2001. It’s been quite an interesting path to where I am now. I’ve never had the mindset that it was a death sentence. I’ve always believed that I would be symptom free one day.
Near the beginning this journey I had an exacerbation which significantly affected my eyesight–the only way I could see was with an eye patch. Extreme balance issues had put me in a wheelchair. I literally spoke in a slurred whisper when I felt as if I were screaming, and half of my entire body was completely numb. That was then, and this is now. Those issues have been resolved.
I’m technically not “cured” from MS, and do still have some issues like poor memory etc. I am still hanging on, but I do believe all of my abilities that I had before MS will all go back to their pre-MS state again.
Follow me on my journey.
