What I thought was just another optical migraine that lasted over a month, tuned out to be something more, from my many hospital visits, specialists visits and MRI’s and it was only because of my persistence in searching for an answer, that only now I have a diagnosis: I have relapsing-remitting Multiple Sclerosis.
If you feel theres something not right, as we all know our own bodies, don’t leave it ’til it’s too late, see a specialist and get another, even another opinion, because persistence and a diagnosis gives relief and answers, to all those nagging questions.
So now it’s one foot in front of the other, and positive thoughts, medication, plus enjoying life to the fullest, is what lays ahead, no doom and gloom for me, this is not a death sentence, but I am scared at what lays ahead, everyone with MS has different symptoms. I am learning more and more of this condition everyday, and want to pass onto you, please never be quick to judge a person, always help and be a helping hand.
MS affects over 26,000 Australians, and more than two million people worldwide. There is currently no cure for MS, but the are a number of treatments to help the symptoms and slow progression of this disease.
I just wanted to share my story with you, to raise awareness of MS, which is an autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system. I know we are all having tough times at this current COVID-19 climate, but if you can spare a small donation as we Wear Red for MS in May, all donations will go into MS research to look for a cure, every little bit helps.
It is scary, but if we continuously live in fear, we don’t enjoy all the good life has to offer :) x
We're wearing red for MS in May
We're raising money to support Anita and people living with multiple sclerosis! We're inspired by the work the MS Society SA/NT do for people living with MS, and we want to help them make a difference! They have certainly helped Anita after she was diagnosed last year.
Please sponsor us today by giving whatever you can in this current COVID-10 climate. Every little bit will help us reach our fundraising goal!
The more people that know about the MS Society, the greater the impact. So please spread the word by sharing our page with your friends and family. Thank you for your generous support, it means a lot to us!
