Never Give Up!!
by Allyson P
Hi, my name is Allyson and I am 26 years old. I was diagnosed with MS in April of 2011. Numbness in my legs is what first made me see a Dr. After a brain MRI, spinal tap, and a few other tests it was official. I have MS.
At first, I was really frustrated and somewhat angry. Then I woke up one morning and decided that in life, there are things I have control over and things that I don't have control over. I am focusing on what I do have control over.
I can choose to make good decisions for my health. I can choose to have a good attitude I can choose to get up and live my life to the fullest instead of feeling sorry for myself.
I feel lucky to have such a great family and so many friends that are supportive and loving. Even though it is hard managing my symptoms which are fatigue, numbness/weakness in my legs, vision problems, balance issues, and other things, I have to remember that it could be so much worse, and that I still have so much life to live and so many things I want to do.
Having MS has helped me to really appreciate my life and the people in it. Blessings do come in crazy disguises. I will never give up!!
