When Insurance Denies Tysabri

I am so over this relapse. I want to wake up from this bad dream and never sleep again. I need to take care of my kids. I need to be present for my husband. I need to get to a place where I am able to return all of the acts of kindness I …

Managing a Relapse with Steroids

It all began on February 5th… That Thursday will likely haunt my dreams for quite some time. It will serve as the traumatic reminder that I am dealing with something very real despite looking ‘normal’. I might not let Multiple Sclerosis define who I am but it sure plays a large and in charge role …

The Final Baby

Pregnancy is the magic pill for Multiple Sclerosis, they say. Your hormones will protect you for 6-8 weeks after delivery, they say. In a perfect world, sure. But then something unexpected happens. Instead of pregnancy la-dee-da, they say you are ‘unusual’ and should really consider your health before having more children. Women don’t relapse WHILE …

Feeling Lost

I never imagined ‘do you want to end up a mom in a wheelchair’ would ever be this real. This close. Being confined to my bed with the highlight of my day being going downstairs to eat dinner with my family wasn’t exactly the push present I was shooting for. I was thinking more like …

Life in a Multiple Sclerosis Relapse

I am a prisoner of Multiple Sclerosis. A prisoner of my own body. Just this afternoon I convinced my eager toddler he shouldn’t shower with me because my legs were tired. When he asked why, I told him I didn’t want to fall and hurt him. A sentence no parent should ever have to tell …

Multiple Sclerosis and Breastfeeding

I did it. I made the phone call that will sever our days of breastfeeding and all I can do is lay here as you sleep and cry. And I mean straight up ugly cry. I didn’t want to make to make the phone call this early but walking is no longer on my list of …

I Hate Facebook

I hate just about everything about Facebook. I hate notifications. I hated hearing “Mommy, put your phone down”. I hate the instant gratification monsters it has created. I hate how sensitive it has made people because so much context is lost in a status update. I hated reading about dying babies and ebola. I hate …

The Day I Tried to Have a Normal Life

I’d like to be settled into somewhat of a normal life. Somewhat. I know it’s never going to be completely normal.   -Michael Jordan  I can’t shake the feeling responsible for the ridiculous action my eyes have been doing each and every time a certain thought crosses my mind. I feel a little broken because …

My Mission to Break it Down on the Dance Floor

I admit green tea hasn’t been apart of my life for very long. I wasn’t a cradle tea drinker, nor did I require a tea stash in college. Bigelow Tea came into my life when my online family started working with them. (At least I’m honest!) Keep in mind this is exactly how I have …
