I was an average 34-year-old in a relationship, engaged, trying to have children, developed a seizure problem which we got under control – or did we? – was given medication after medication. I still had problems and two neurologists later I discovered that I have multiple sclerosis. I was devastated because a year or so before that my mother had been diagnosed with MS.
After seeing what my mom went through, I was determined to fight this head on. The best thing you can have in this fight is love and support of family and friends. So, with medicine, good support, love, and understanding, I’m fighting like a girl everyday trying to find ways to slow down the progression so that I will not end up like my mother with the progressive type. Seeing her struggle makes me fight that much harder in my life. This is how I fight like a girl. Remember – MS may not be curable now but hopefully we can find one soon.
