MS = Mommy Strength
Posted on April 02 2013
Just 6 weeks after the birth of my twin sons, my first children, at age 36, I was diagnosed with MS. To say it shattered me to the core is an understatement. I was supposed to be enjoying the arrival of my boys, not starting MS drugs and multiple rounds of day long steroid infusions. I couldn’t focus on “why me”, “what if” etc. I had to focus on my boys, no matter what disease I had. I have struggled through multiple relapses, changed drugs multiple times and most recently have had to face my husband leaving us and asking for a divorce. But through it all, I am brave, I know I will make it, I know I’m the best Mom that my sons could have, even with MS! I am brave, I am a fighter, I will not be I will not be defined by MS…no, my sons need a strong Mom, a good Mom, a Mom who believes in them and herself. So MS to me = Mommy Strength, Mighty Strong and above all BRAVE!!
