This is my Life Transcribed.

Writing has always been my therapy and helps keep me sane (although some would argue that fact).
 

During my most vulnerable times, I shared my life through this blog and was so inspired by how many people I was able to connect with through writing and sharing.
 

As some of you may know, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in 2022, but was having my first symptoms back in 2018. Since then, I've been on a journey of health and wellness, both physically and mentally. I've refocused my blog to highlight that journey, what I'm learning along the way, new health and wellness therapies that are trending and the real benefits behind them for your body and mind. Thank you for joining me and sharing in this journey!

My Journey with Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

My personal journey with MS started in 2018, but MS has been a part of my life since I was in college when my mother was diagnosed. At that time, there weren’t as many medications offered, and it wasn’t as widely diagnosed as it is now. It took her many years, a handful of doctors and a few incorrect diagnoses before she found a neurologist that was familiar with MS, which is a similar story to mine (and as I’ve learned, many others).

 

For those of you unfamiliar with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), it’s an autoimmune disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. When you have MS, your immune systems attacks the protective covering (myelin) of your nerve fibers, and the nerves misfire due to miscommunication from your brain to the rest of your body. There are many different ways it presents itself from person to person, because it depends on where the MS attacks your nerve fibers. That’s also one of many reasons why it can be challenging to diagnose because it affects each person differently.

 

I started having strange symptoms around March of 2018, but at first I chalked it up to it being a trying time and related to stress...
