I was diagnosed with MS in June of 2015. I collapsed in my house and was hospitalized with what they thought was a stroke. I was going to start treatment but I found out I was pregnant! After I had my son Corbin everything got even worse! I couldn't walk and I lost feeling to half of my body.
I finally started treatment in September of 2016. I am on Tysabri and it's working great but because of my JCV I have to go off of it in June 2017 and it scares me to death. I don't ever want there to be a day my son feels like he has to care for me instead of the other way around and with MS you never know when that day will come!!
It's so frustraighting to still be exhausted after a full nights sleep! A lot of people don't understand MS either, which makes you look lazy or dramatic but we aren't. I can't explain the feeling when I get over heated and my legs stop working! Also the amount of focus it takes to walk in a straight line or hold something in each hand without dropping one...
Medication is so expensive and the government doesn't cover it very easily. I need to be there for my son and I believe a cure is possible with things like this! This will be my 1st MS walk and your support is appreciated more than you know!!!
HELP ME KEEP FIGHTING EVEN WHEN IT HURTS!!
