My New Journey

My name is Jennifer. I've always been out going..somewhat energetic. I have been happily married for four years and have a beautiful son. In Feb. I started having vision problems in my left eye. Went to an ophthalmologist and they figured my vision would return if I stopped stressing out. Four days later I loss complete vision..only seeing shapes. Did blood work, an MRI and steroid treatments to find out I had MS.

I get monthly Tysabri infusions. I workout, stretch and am working on better eating habits. I often have become more absent minded. I forget alot,  to where I have to have reminders for everything. I have insomnia, depression and mood swings.

Beginning of next year my husband and I will be trying for a baby, meaning I stop my infusions. I cannot let this illness stop me from living my life and if you have it then don't let it get you either!
