im 35 years old i have a wonderful husband of 17 years, 2 beautiful daughters and a poodle that is my strength when im alone. im a stay at home mom now but look forward to going back to work soon i hope.
i was diagnoised in sept. of 07 my problems started on august the 4th i had been shopping with my girls,my mom and husband. felt really great that day, went home that night and thought that all was perfect i felt great nothing seemed to be able to stop me except for a little headach that i had already been being treated for. went to bed and was rudely awakened by this MONSTER that we now of as M.S just thought that it was a bad cramp but i knew that something had to be going in the wrong direction cause cramps were not suppose to hurt this bad i mean i had two girls naturally with no pain meds. so i dealt with the pain couldnt walk had to drag myself to the bathroom hoping not to fall and it finally passed about 3-4 hours later after a lot of cryin and heatn pads and ice packs. i thought good im home free the pain was gone but the next day i couldnt move my leg it felt as if it weighed 1000 lbs but i knew that it didnt.
well then it happened again and it was only to my surprise that it was twice as bad this time.i had to go to the ER and they thought that it was my sciatic nerve and they gave me a pain/steroid shot sent me home and i went to my dr. the next. he ordered an MRI the next week and the results were sent to him immediatly but to my greatest fear i was told that it was one of 3 things <it was an infarction similar to a stroke or it was cancer or it was M.S well that was the beginning of not only one trip to the dr. but 1 of many. i finally got in to see the M.S specialist and he diagnosed me with M.S yes that was a blessing because i thought that my world was over before i could get it started.i still have 2 girls that need my help with alot of things that a girl needs and only a momma or woman can do.
i have to put my faith in GOD because he has been there from the very beginning and he will be there till the end. i have been totally paralized on my left side from my ear down to my toes. my whole body felt as if it had been folded in half but with alot of steroids, wonderfull drs., GOD, lots of prayers and the strongest belief that i have ever had with also my husband, my girls, my momma, my daddy, my youngest brother, and me not letting this get me down i have made it this far and i will make it even further cause one of these days i hope and pray that my girls will get married and i can help their daddy walk them down the isle and then help them take care of their baby if and when they choose to have one....
more later after i go to the dr. in feb. but for now i take Rebif 44mcg 3 times a week and it has worked miracles for me and i wouldnt change a thing right now for it .i am going through a severe depression right now but it is because i cant work, drive, or go any where right now but i do know that that will change one day i hope... keep up the good spirits never say never and always let ur body know that u have control with the help of GOD and u r gonna win this battle one day..... my web site if you would like to contact me and chat for myspace is firstname.lastname@example.org or yahoo im is email@example.com feel free to contact me and friend request me i would love to hear from any and all of you that needs a friend together we can and will make it......
