Veronica’s Fight Like A Girl Story (Multiple Sclerosis)

MSHi, 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!’

    After 20 years of MS treated from 2000 to 2006 with Rebif(efficient to that year) and then Avonex(not efficient to calm down my lesions’ number increase) i found this website health herbs clinic . just 3 months ago, and their current natural health tech to help curb/manage it. Decided to give it a try and it has made a tremendous difference for me I had improved walking balance, muscle strength and improved vision, always thankful for nature that helps in managing these terrible diseases. Thank you for giving those of us with Multiple sclerosis a new hope. Google
