Pushing Through

Hi friends, happy Tuesday!

Push through…

That’s something I continue to tell myself during challenging times. It’s not easy battling a difficult disease like MS, but I can’t give in to it. I know many that read my blog, are battling other autoimmune diseases, mental health issues, or spiritual brokenness. I also, know that Caregivers have a challenging task when it comes to watching someone they love suffer. WE ARE NOT ALONE! Together, we can lift one another up because Support goes a long way.

This past week, I had my Tysabri treatment and the days after were rough. I had difficulty walking, it was a task to get dressed, I fell twice and I cried because of the pain and weakness in my legs. Even during this time of despair, I promised myself that I wouldn’t give up and I would PUSH through it all at my own pace. I urge you all to do the same. I went to the gym on Sunday and did my best with what I had for that day (I do the spoon theory in my head lol). The amount of support that was given to me was overwhelming and it truly melted my heart. People re-posted my video and tagged me as Inspiration for them to exercise.

Please continue friends. Don’t give up on yourself or the process. Below is the video that I posted and keep in mind that days prior, I was not able to walk far alone. God is good. Thanks for reading!!!

If only you saw me two weeks ago

My testimony:

This week, I’ve been able to go to work and exercise. I wrote recently about my fitness goals and how I’m feeling good. 

What some of you may not know is that for 2 weeks, I walked with a limp. I was literally dragging my left leg along because I had a MS flare up. However, after steroid infusions to calm the inflammation, I slowly got better. 

God is good people. I can smile today and walk with confidence knowing that the sunshine has came after the storm. I don’t take anything for granted, especially my body. 

So to anyone out there that is battling any disease, or are caregivers; there is light at the end of the tunnel. Peace to you all.
