MS has always been a part of my life. My mother has had MS since she was 29 years old. I have seen what the disease can do and I have always said that my mom has been my hero for the way that she has dealt with it. Now it is my turn. I never thought that I would get MS. We had read somewhere that it usually skipped a generation so I thought I was safe. Guess not! I hope that I can be the same inspiration for my daughter that my mom was to me. My biggest concern is how big of a part of my life the disease will be. I am a single parent and my daughter counts on me to be everything. I don't have time for MS. I need to be there for my daughter, she is the only thing that matters to me in life and I intend to be there for her. So fatigue, migraines and maybe later the inability to walk scare me to death because they may interfere with my ability to parent and provide for my daughter. But I am ready for this journey so bring it on.
