This past November I was diagnosed with CIS (Clinically Isolated Syndrome) which is the first documented attack of Multiple Sclerosis. CIS is a form of Relapsing MS. At first I was shocked, upset, scared and a million other emotions. I went through my first treatment of steroid infusion therapy and did not see much improvement. So, in January we went back for round two of steroid infusion therapy and after some tough weeks, lots or prayers and positive vibes and a lot of fight I went into remission and am currently living (mostly) symptom free.
Luckily, I have an amazing husband, family and group of friends that have shown and continue to show me an amazing amount of support and love.
I am an avid Harry Potter fan, dog mom of a 100lb snuggle machine (Sir Mac N Cheese), newly diagnosed MS Warrior and a dreamer. I have always been the type of girl who chases after her dreams and doesn’t just sit back and let life pass me by, and I plan on continuing to chase my dreams and live my best life despite of this disease.
A new diagnosis is hard and I would be lying if I said that I was always positive or happy. I have my challenging days too. Writing and reading have always been powerful positive sources of energy in my life so I would like to share my journey with you in the hopes that I bring some of that positive energy into the world with my words too!
