Game Changer

What do you do with a body that doesn’t listen? You work with what you have!

I currently have RRMS (Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis) and I have good and bad days. Some days I honestly almost forget I have this disease and some days it takes every ounce of energy I can muster to get out of bed. On bad days I notice that my mood plummets and I have to try REALLY HARD to be a nice wife and mother.

The consensus of MS seems to be that it will affect everyone differently. My personal journey includes numb hands and feet, falling, no feeling in my legs, memory issues, bladder issues(😫) and major fatigue. There are other annoying *perks* of MS that I won’t go into but the ones I listed are the major issues I deal with.

Being determined to deal with the hand I’ve been dealt keeps me focused on improving my situation and away from depression and isolation. I truly believe our brain and outlook on life is a game changer.

Try to look towards improving your plight, no matter how rough it is; go outside and enjoy nature, look at a child who sees the wonder in little things, volunteer, watch an inspiring movie, hug your children or kiss your spouse. Find something that brings you joy and focus on it instead of the negative things this disease brings. Focusing on improving my health and trying to avoid conventional medicine is what drives me and helps me stay focused on improvement. I have MS and I can’t change that, but I can work with what I have and still love my life.

What good things in your life can you focus on or what activity would help you look to the positives?
