In 2005, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
Usually I only get extreme reactions once every 3 months.
Personally, it takes everything I have just to move my aching body out of the bed during these weeks. The hubby says he can always tell because one of my eyes looks extremely smaller, or slight eye drooping in my right eye.
It has definitely been a MS-ing week!
Multiple sclerosis is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system, which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another.
After initial diagnoses, I was with an amazing team of MS specialist in Augusta, Georgia. Which gave me added hope in my future for having a fulfilling life with children.
I have high expectations of myself on a physical level because I know that I need to optimize taking care of myself in order to live a long and productive life.
I try to be a positive force of nature in all circumstances, as I know that I am Blessed and there are people who have far worse life-threatening conditions.
I can do all thing through Christ who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13
Every step you take matters in making a better version of yourself!
