My Life With MsI was diagnosed with MS in April 09. This month changed my life forever. MS just showed up one day. It's still hanging around. MS showed up one day introducing itself to me through fatigue, slow walking and seizures. The seizures seemed to have the most aggressive personality when MS first showed up. As time went along heavy legs and not being able to walk decided it needed my attention everyday. It demanded that I get it things that lets everybody know that its not walking is here. It demanded canes first. Not walking got greedy and decided I want a rolling walker. Not walking became viscious and demanded a wheel chair. Fatigue loves to pop up with unannounced visits. I can be laughing and having a good day and then here comes fatigue with its loud mouth! Well I've gotten use to my new companions. I know it sounds strange. But ignoring them didn't help. I decided whatever I have to deal with for the day I'll make the best of it! So if seizure shows up. I still make the best of it. Since not walking is here everyday I accessorize well! I have the prettiest canes. I have a rhinestone decorated rolling walker. I call it my Hot Wheels! I have a hot pink wheelchair! I always turn heads! I'm still a diva! When fatigue shows up I call it my pajama party! I didn't choose to have MS. However I'm living the best life I can with it.
Still loving life,
