A little back story…
2017 was poopy. March my mom died suddenly, I lost my job in August, house in October, diagnosed in November. I am a divorced mother of a 10 year old.
My diagnosis is RRMS (Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis) I am currently deteriorating, have lesions on the left and right side of my brain.
I used to be a medical assistant, run 5 Ks (okay, who am I kidding, I survived them, lol) slow pitch… I was very active.
I am fighting now, with an attorney by my side, for disability as I have no income. I sell what I can to afford things. I am unable to work in the profession I went to school for. When I started to get sick I was attending Iowa for EMT… goal was to be a volunteer firefighter and paramedic. I love helping people, it’s hard for me to ask for help.
As I keep losing motor functions, it’s hard for me to walk. I know I need a scooter or golf cart for outdoor events.
I try to stay positive, I tell myself daily that it could be worse and remind myself, I did not ask for this. I will survive this, just need to tweak my lifestyle a bit.
