Me, myself and MS.

Life can be so funny…

There I was sitting there revamping my vision board for the year. You have all these things planned out and your idea of what your year will look like, then BOOM, God says “Hold up girl, slow down.” Prior to this pandemic, I began experiencing neurological symptoms in January. My right forearm had gone numb with tingling and burning. Me, thinking of a previous neck injury, thought this was just a result of that. As the issue worsened, I became very anxious then testing positive for covid-19 sent me right on over the edge. The numbness had progressed up my arm all the way to my right breast. While recovering from covid-19, the issue began to improve on its own, but returning to work added on a new symptom—blurry vision in the left eye. At this point, I had been sent for 2 MRI’s previously, one of the brain and one of the c-spine. In the pit of my stomach, I had a strong feeling of what the cause of my problems were, but remained in denial. The answer became clearer and clearer as research and testing went on, but I needed a more accurate diagnosis to accept it. Following my spinal tap, that is exactly what I got.

May 15, 2020 my life changed forever. I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
