Can you imagine…
Having multiple sclerosis means that one morning you may not be able to walk when you wake up, you may suddenly have impaired vision or your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. Even pain which could flatten a horse! Well, that was me. In the last flare up, all of my right side would not work for me. Now having another...into my second month off work. Not as bad as the last one but a challenge none the less. How far down will this disease bring me?!?
The symptoms of MS are many and vary for everyone. Mine affected mostly my magic legs, I call them. My husband would say my memory! hehehe Got through my fourth flare up and it's been fun to say the least. MS may get on my nerves hahaha but it won't define me. I am stronger than this disease. My armour is my humour, my smile, my husband and family. With these, I can get through each day 1 minute, 1 hour 1 day. For this I am truly thankful.
Hate the MS hug, but love other hugs any time, especially from my hubby, David, and my kids, Tyler and Jacqueline, family and friends.
A shadow may trip me up and stress may try to keep me down; I may have MS but MS doesn't have me!
It’s estimated that approximately 55,000-75,000 men and women in Canada have the disease, and every day about three more people are diagnosed. There are many in the Corner Brook and surrounding areas and Multiple Sclerosis is known as "Canada's Disease!"
My wish…a future without MS. I would not wish this on anyone.
I’ve registered for the MS Walk because I want to do something for everyone who lives with multiple sclerosis. The MS Society is the only national voluntary organization in Canada that supports both MS research and services, and the MS Walk has been a critical part of the MS Society’s fundraising efforts for over 20 years. Proceeds from this event and others like it provide support and services to help those living with this disease, their families and caregivers. They also fund research with three primary goals: to find a cause and cure for MS, repair nervous system damage caused by MS and stop MS attacks. By supporting me, you too can make a difference in the life of someone with multiple sclerosis.
I am part of the MS Walk because I believe we will end multiple sclerosis - with your help we can get there.
Please give generously.
