Hi, I am sharing my life with multiple sclerosis. Back in 2004, I was pregnant. The pregnancy was going good until November 8 2004. I went into preterm labor at 7 1/2 months. They couldn’t stop labor, and my son Kyle was born. He was a beautiful baby boy born without lungs. He fought for 1 1/2 hours until he went to Heaven.
That’s when they told me my sugar was 974 when I was in labor. So they concluded I was a type 2 diabetic. I took their pills, which was fine.
Then a couple months passed. Depression settled in at full force and I was told I needed back surgery. I had calcified discs and when my neuro surgeon did an mri, he found 9 brain and 6 spinal cord lesions. He sent me to his friend, a neurologist, and I had the tests on my spinal tap. I was diagnosed with MS in Feb. 2005.
I was watching my sugars and a year later, I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.
I’m fighting two major monsters. My life is hard; being insulin dependent and having MS, but it’s a challenge that I have fought for a few years. I have this attitude’ Yes, I have MS, but it hasn’t caught me yet!’
