Not what I want

I was diagnosed with ms 5 months ago. It’s all started when I had this hand spasm I thought it wasn’t a big deal. I had it for 9 days, and I was like I need to see a doctor. So I went and he asked for an MRI, but after I saw him my hand spasm stopped. So I thought I was okay again until untilllllllllll June 17. I woke up I was all okay I went downstairs. I had breakfast, and then I went back to my room and before I enter my room. I felt my stomach drop and I just passed out after that. I realized I have to do an MRI so I did, and hmmmm I have MS. And excuse me for my bad English and my grammar. English is not my first language.
