10 years ago today…

… I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

The prognosis was not good. You’ll most likely be in a wheelchair in ten years time, I was told.

Here I am, though. Ten years later, and by God’s enormous grace, I can walk completely normally, run a fair bit, even jump over a puddle, if I need to.

Ten years ago, when I heard the doctor say that I had Multiple Sclerosis, the only emotion I felt was relief. Relief at a diagnosis and not being told yet again that it was all in my head. It meant little else to me – I didn’t have a clue. I certainly didn’t know what a cruel and incurable condition it was. That realisation only came much later.

The road has had many twists and turns, but I have been blessed to find a medicine that works so well for me and has changed the path of my MS in a 180 degree direction. And it hasn’t even cost me a cent. What an incredible day it was, that I landed on the Fingolimod trials, of the first oral medication for relapsing-remitting MS.

I am so unbelievably humbled and thankful.

That is all.
