I am a mother, wife, sister, daughter and friend. I was recently diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) just after my 39th birthday, and it has been one of the most difficult years of my life. I have learned to put on a brave face for those around me but mostly for my two innocent boys – Cole, age 5 and Charlie, age 3. I am constantly living with the fear and uncertainly of what the future holds for me and my family.
I realized that no matter what I tell myself, or tell anyone else, I am scared of MS and I think it’s ok. I have decided that I don’t want it to hold me back from my life, even though I’m realizing it may be a decision that I have to continually remind myself to make. It’s easy to think about how terrible the cards you have been dealt are, the hard thing is waking up every morning and deciding that you aren’t going to let MS defeat.
