I have MS and I'm Scared

by Alexis Mitchell
(Buffalo, New York)

I was diagnosed about 2 years ago. I was put on Copaxone, but it seems every time I inject I start having relapses and I get sick. When I stop injecting I feel better. I stopped injecting and now I am able to walk in high heels; something I have not been able to do in a long time.

Montel, to be frank, I am really scared. I am scared to take the therapy and scared not to. I work every day and it is starting to be a challenge. My husband is on disability from a back injury on his job and I am 60 this year. I can't retire, nor do I really want to, but I have to take time off periodically and finally I was written off for calling off so much.

I really don't know why I am writing to you. I guess I just wanted someone who understands this illness to talk to. I wake up all night and can't sleep. I am tired when I get to work. I am just a total mess. Can I offer some inspiration. I talk to God all the time. I have had a life time of losses. Now I am about to face my own self lost.
Thank you for reading this and listening to me.
God bless you and keep you. Please pray for me.

Hello Alexis

Hello Alexis, my name is Rosanne. I've had MS 24 years now and I'm not less scared of it now than when I was first diagnosed. All I can share with you is a verse from Matthew 6:34..."Let each day's troubles suffice...". Take it one day at a time.
