Alicia’s Fight Like a Girl Story (Multiple Sclerosis aka MS)

Alicia's Story (MS)  So, about a year ago, my mother was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis AFTER BEING MISDIAGNOSED 15 YEARS AGO. I wasn’t really too sure of what the disease was until I read more into it. This past year has been the hardest on me. I live right down the road from her and I’m usually over there every single day. If I’m not, I call and check on her every day. I have watched the disease take its toll on her and I have NEVER felt the way I do now than I have in my entire life. It KILLS me to see her in that much pain. I would say I would switch places with her in a heartbeat but she wants me to go get an MRI done because she’s noticed I have some early symptoms of it. I am really scared and I just don’t know what to do other than try to stay strong for her. I just really need some support and then I found this website.

  1. Alicia,

    I have been there and was diagnosed almost 2 years ago (I’m 27, my mother also has MS.) I hope things turns out ok for you after getting your MRIs done…just know that I am currently on Copaxone and doing totally fine. MS sucks, the unpredictability of it is awful. But its not a death sentence.
