8 years

Hi all!! Today is my 8th wedding anniversary. I’m extremely blessed and thankful to continue this journey with my bestfriend 😁♥️😁.

When I was first diagnosed with MS (4/13/2010) and learned about the debilitating disease, we were 24 years old. In my head, I thought the chance of having a fulfilled relationship was no more. Who would want to marry me when I’m sick? With the progression of the disease, my body would never be the same, who has the patience for that? I was preparing myself to no longer be with my high school sweetheart because I didn’t want to hold him back. As I shared the news it was devastating to us all, a lot of anger, tears, frustration but one thing stuck out. My then boyfriend said “I’m going to take care of you, I got you”. At the end of that year he asked me to marry him (12/25/2010) and we married 8/9/2012.

To all my dear friends and loved ones who battle illnesses, love and support goes a long way. Please don’t give up on the hope that you can have a meaningful relationship or marriage. Don’t let the disease take that away from you. You are worth MORE than these doctor reports. Thanks for reading! Have a great day!

Motivational Monday’s

Hi all! 

Thanks for visiting and sharing my blog.

Today is what I like to call in my blog “motivational Monday’s”. This is also apart of the scheduled blog entries that I discussed in a previous post. Today, I want to discuss “Hope”.

What is Hope? I feel hope is the anticipation of a positive outcome for the future. 

This hits close to home for me especially on today. If you have been following my blog, you may know that I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) 5 years ago. With this debilitating disease, I find myself in a battle of emotions constantly. On one hand, I remain strong and keep in mind that things could be worse. On the other hand, I’m frustrated with the symptoms and the potential ending result of the disease. Hope is what keeps me grounded. 

I have Hope that scientists will find a cure, I have hope that no more damage will happen to my central nervous system,  I have hope that I may feel normal again. Besides my wonderful support system, having hope, makes me not want to give up even when at times I want to. 

What is hope for you? It may be career, relationship goals, self help. Whatever it may be, try to think positive and not give up. It’s ok to prepare yourself for the not so great events but it’s good to always have hope for a better outcome. 

Take care all!
