Many who know me, are aware that I battle Multiple Sclerosis (MS). I was diagnosed at the age of 24, a few months before my 25th birthday. The journey hasn’t always been great however, if it wasn’t for my faith and support system, I don’t know how or where I would be.
I made a choice that giving up wasn’t an option, especially when I have people who need me. Regardless of how unpredictable MS may be, I know that God is with me as well.
So, I’m constantly hearing “you don’t look sick” or “I would never know” and it’s because I continue to smile. I’ve adapted the ability to pretend in public that all is well even when it’s not. However, God, my husband, parents extended family and close friends have seen me at my worst. None of them turned their backs on me when I needed it the most, especially now that I’m a mother. Words can never truly express how much they mean to me therefore I can’t give up. Giving up is NOT an option. Thank you God, thank you all, you saved me.
To anyone who may be battling something rather it be health issues, mental health or just emotions, feel free to contact me. Nicolecherise723@gmail.com
