Finding my passion for art once more

Last updated: March 2021

Back in September 2020 I started having numbness in my feet and hands it had gotten so bad that I gave up painting simply because I couldn’t hold a brush anymore.

Seeing a neurologist

I seen my neurologist and she ordered a spinal tap and from that I was given the diagnosis of Relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS) . A month later I was cleared to start tysabri .

Rekindling their love for painting

Beyond terrified I got my first infusion and my life changed it made me feel like me again a feeling I haven’t felt in months and I’m not on infusion number six and I have no numbness. I was able to paint once more I pushed my self to do this contest and I won all because of this amazing treatment I’m beyond grateful for tysabri.

Looking at the bright side

This MS diagnosis in a way has been *good* (that’s a far stretch) it’s helping me piece together different things, different ways I’ve always been. It’s helping me make sense everything that’s always been in front of my face but brushed aside. I want to be an open book, I want to talk about it, I want to because I NEED IT. I need it to feel normal. It’s NOT a secret it’s a part of ME I’m going to keep learning about it and sharing it with everyone so they can help to understand me better and others like me.
