MS A Blessing in Disguise
My name is Laura and I have had MS for 16 years. I went blind in one eye and went to the family doctor after 3 days of it not going away. My family doctor did not let me leave until I had an appointment with a neurologist and optha-neurologist the same day. The neuro, of course, sent me for an MRI but no one mentioned MS. I had the MRI the same day in between other appointments.
That night, with 3 kids running around and a baby only 9 months old, the neuro's receptionist called to tell me that they "found SOMETHING" on my MRI and I needed to be at the hospital at 6 am the next morning to be admitted. I didn't know if it was a brain tumor or what.
When the doctor finally showed up around 11 am, he told me very soberly, "You have MS or Lyme Disease." I said, "Praise God!" The doctor and nurses in the room thought I was crazy but when the nurses found out what the doctor did to me, making me wait and not knowing they understood, MS wouldn't kill me and I could be there for my 4 children.
Many years later, after divorcing my husband, and finding a great support chat online I decided that if there was a man out there that would want me with my MS and everything in my past (another whole story) it was up to God to send him to me so I prayed for him to send me a good man if He saw fit. The very next day a newly diagnosed man came into the chat room and invited me on a cruise.
No, I turned him down but he did come to visit me and 5 years later we were married. We have been together the whole time but it took 5 years for us to marry. Now we fight this disease together. Life with MS can be a blessing in disguise if you're open to what God has in store for you.
