9 years ago I turned my life upside down in the hopes of saving it. I had been living with the horrible symptoms of MS for 4 years when my arms had gone numb and paralyzed. I should have been scared out of my mind, but as busy as I was I those days with the kids, my job, the new house, and my husband's business, I secretly enjoyed having an excuse as to why I couldn't do anything. I needed the break and I honestly thought this whole "MS thing" would just go away if I didn't pay attention to it. It didn't go away. It got worse. I was numb in my legs and arms, sometimes unable to use them, I was dizzy, confused, and sometimes had to walk with a cane or use a wheelchair. My tipping point was the day my husband left me alone with my 2 year old daughter as he took a 5 minute drive down the block to a convenience store. Those 5 minutes changed the course of my life. As soon as he walked out the door, my daughter came over to me to show me a toy. She tripped and hit her head on the coffee table. She cried so hard no sound came out until she caught her breath. When she did, she reached her little arms up for me to pick her up and said in her little 2 year old voice "mama, please." She kept saying it and wondering why I didn't pick her up. I couldn't. I couldn't use my arms. So I got down and my knees and cried with her as she hugged my neck. That was my breaking point. I had decided in that moment I would do everything in my power and hopefully in God's power too, to get better. I wanted to take my life back from MS. With my husband's support, I quit my job and started researching the effects of nutrition on autoimmune diseases. One thing led to another and I started having less symptoms. My health continued to get better and today, I help other people, not just with MS, realize their full potential. I feel like its my duty to give other people with MS and new vision of the disease. I'm so grateful for this second chance at life, I've made it my mission to reach as many people as I can to let them know, they have options. We are never stuck and we are never too sick to get better.
