Me and multiple sclerosis

Me and multiple sclerosis

We’ve had a turbulent relationship over the last 19 years to say it mildly. There have been many one-sided fights. I’ve told my story before bug sometimes it’s worth repeating.

It came on fast starting in my foot on a Saturday and by the time I saw the doctor that Friday…

Multiple sclerosis symptoms in my head?

Multiple sclerosis symptoms in my head?

My doctor called yesterday because she received part of the results of my MRI. Turns out I have a bulging disc in my neck area on the right side. I at first thought, oh, that maybe could explain the tendonitis I’m having in my shoulder but that’s my left side. Unless they consider the right side when they are viewing in front of you in which case their right is my left. Then my doctor said maybe that could explain some…

What is a multiple sclerosis good day?

What is a multiple sclerosis good day?

What is a multiple sclerosis good day? It’s obviously different for everybody.  Everybody has different symptoms, different challenges, different feelings and different things that they deal with in their daily life. So unfortunately, I can’t speak for everybody, I can only give my opinion. I want to say that I feel that anybody that has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis is a warrior.  If you’re newly diagnosed, and you’ve come through your relapse, you might have come off the battlefield, for now….

I said in previous posts something was brewing with my MS lately, and unfortunately it still is. A quick note to my mom, if your about to read this, while in your hut, on a beautiful beach,on your vacation, I’m fine. I’m doing what I always do, accept, adjust, adapt. Well things aren’t so great MS wise, I wish I can say they were. Sometimes I wonder, did things get worse because I stopped working? Was that constant push on…

I have multiple sclerosis and I’m ok.

I have multiple sclerosis and I’m ok.

I have had multiple sclerosis for 18 years. It was Valentines Day 1998 when my symptoms started. Three days later I couldn’t really walk. First I saw an orthopedist he took one look at me and sent me to a neurologist. When he told me that it was probably MS. I cried. I cried because I really didn’t know what the hell MS was or what that was going to mean to my life. So here I am 18+ years…
