This is MY journey with MS! I give you my thoughts, feelings, hopes, and prayers. My wish that one day this disease will come to an end. That one day there will be a cure. For now, I hold on to possibility. I HOPE this will help and inspire not only myself but others.

Sprain...Urg! Always Something....

So I was getting better, even able to get around the house without my walker or cane, only needing to use my cane when outdoor and what do you know....I twisted and sprained my ankle. So, now I'm back in the walker boot and needing the cane again. This has been a very long recovery, I mean, I understand that Meningitis and Strokes are very serious but after all I have already gone through, you'd think that would be easier. It's not. In fact the unpredictability of all the side effects are just as bad, dare I say worse, than the unpredictability I experienced with the MS.

My first Meningitis (which was the severe one and caused the stroke) was mid-February and here we are just after the 4th of July and I'm still having side effects. I am doing my best to be positive but when you're 33 years old and can't go anywhere for fear of having an accident because you have no control over your bladder, can't walk very well and still have pain and headaches, it's just not easy. I know I'm probably not doing a good job of describing it to you all, but I just want to say that I am doing my best to recover, be patient (not my strong-suit) and when things settle down I will be back.....with a much more positive outlook for the future. I know things the last few months have been difficult but I keep telling myself I'm here for a reason and with all that's happened already, I WILL get better. I HAVE to! :)
