To Me: Before the MS Diagnosis

This is to you.

Right now, you’re living carefree. These words that follow, are the things are the words you’re soon going to need to hear. The previous incidents of falling down and falling down stairs are not incidents of being clumsy. They were most likely warning signs of what was to come. You laughed. The genetic signs were there and it never crossed anyone’s mind- especially yours.

You celebrated being 22. The warning signs are there. Something’s brewing beneath the surface. Signs that shouldn’t have been ignored. You should have been informed about the MS symptoms. You shouldn’t have been brushed off by multiple doctors, it did more harm than good.

Always stay positive. There will be days that you want to give up on everything and everyone. Including yourself. People may act like they understand and you will want to push them away.

Always let someone in your life.

  1. I feel the same way – except my diagnosis is Rheumatoid Arthritis and Mixed Connective Tissue Disease. You just described me… so many years of bits of aches and pains, feeling tired beyond tired, some gnawing voice echoing something else is going on, falls, broken bones, chalked up to ‘just the way I am.’ Brushed of by doctors… over and over and over again, blamed on depression. Complaints that I couldn’t name, just a vague feeling that something was wrong, I knew this feeling I had couldn’t possibly be normal. It wasn’t, it isn’t. Thank you for posting 🙂
