You may be wondering what life is like with MS so please continue reading to find out....
My Life with MS
I was diagnosed with Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis on October 5, 2010. Even though I was given this diagnoses seven years ago, I had symptoms long before that. My health started to rapidly decline when my stress level was at its highest in the Spring of 2010. I started suffering to the point where I couldn't function without help and I had to quit my job and school. It all started with constant vertigo that woulndn't go away, despite medications given at the ER. On top of being dizzy, I had double vision, slurred speech, numbness all over, severe migraine and severe fatigue. That lasted for 6 months and I fell into a deep depression and felt all alone. Nobody could tell me what was wrong and I was only getting worse. I needed help NOW!!
Finally, an MRI was ordered (thank you mom for demanding it) and the results showed lesions all over my brain and spinal cord. The neurologist confidently said, "You have Multiple Sclerosis" I was in shock, scared, and happy all at the same time! I was given the proper medications and care I needed to get better and I did.
Fastforward to now...
I am a healthy and happy fiance, future stepmother, and future college grad in Jan 2018. If I can do it, others can to! If you know someone who has symptoms like mine or you'd like to know more about my story, please reach out to me.
Thank you for reading my story and helping me fight this battle!!
