Wild Ride

All during my childhood and beginning of adulthood, I was always working, taking care of my family, never had any problems. One day in Nov 2005, I started getting really bad headaches that Tylenol, advil, or any otc meds would not take care of. I was rushed to the hospital and given a spinal tap.  At first, I was diagnosed with Aseptic Meningitis. Well, fast forward to 2011, and I was given my 13th spinal tap and told it was not meningitis I had. I was told I have had Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis.

The headaches are constant. 24/7/365. Some days I can deal with them and some days I can’t. My walking and speech come and go as they please and with no rhyme or reason. I get no warning signs at all when this will happen. It comes and goes when it wants to and there isn’t anything I can do about it. I have to take it one day at a time, but it is hard to do that. I am lost and don’t know which way to turn. My bf has been great though. He has helped me more then I thought. Stayed with me through everything and is MY HERO!!!
