When I was first diagnosed I was married and living with my 9 year old son from a previous marriage. My husband decided that he was not able to handle the fact that I had MS so he left.
So from that point on it was me and my son, I felt so guilty because my 9 year old son was having to help me mix and give myself my injections. You could tell that it was very hard on him. But we made it through a lot of hard time together and both of us were happy when they came out with the premade injections.
At the time I was attending school and working full-time and decided that it was too much for me to do so i quite school. It has now been 10 years and I have went back to school my son has graduated from high school and I am going to obtain my Associates degree soon. I still work full-time in the medical field and going to school part-time and it has been a hard road travel but one that has been well worth it.
One of my favorite saying is that I have MS it does not have me. It is a hard and long road but it will be all worth it in the end.
I thank God and my son every day because if it was not for them I would of never made it this far. And someday when it is meant for me God will bring that special man back into my life and he will accept me for me.
Do you celebrate your MS Anniversary?
